From IBPA’s “Independent Publishing Now” e-newsletter of September 24, 2013: “Suzanne Cane and Janet Chapple enjoyed lots of sales while camped outside the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park earlier this summer to promote their titles, Yellowstone, Land of Wonders, and [the fourth edition of] Yellowstone Treasures. While discussing their books in front of the indicator clock that shows passersby the prediction time for the next eruption of Old Faithful Geyser (many of whom wanted to know more than “when is the next eruption” and “where is the bathroom”), they gave away a bonus 2010 Yellowstone quarter (part of the national parks series) to each buyer.” Yellowstone, Land of Wonders is available from University of Nebraska Press.
