Spotted in the Wild: Oregon

On my fun new monthly blog feature, you'll get a Friday peek at where The Key & the Flame has been "spotted in the wild"--the wilds of local bookstores, that is. This month's SITW locale is--

Powell's City of Books, Portland, Oregon

Not only can you see TK&TF in this rare shot, dozing in its natural habitat, but fellow Lucky 13 author Kit Grindstaff's fantasy MG novel, The Flame in the Mist, is seen just a book away. It's not uncommon to see these two species sharing the same habitat. As a theme-related bonus, Angie Sage's Fyre is sandwiched in between.

Powell's is touted by a friend of mine as "the world's greatest bookstore," and that feeling is apparently echoed by The Washington Post. With 68,000 square feet packed with over a million titles, Powell's is a must-visit site when you're in Portland. Follow them on their Facebook page here.

Thanks to author Cat Winters for this month's Spotted in the Wild photo!


Have you spotted The Key & the Flame in your town? Snap a photo and send it to me at readerchat [at] cmcaterer [dot] com or Tweet it to me here (@ClaireCaterer). Be sure and tell me the store name and the city, and I'll use it in an upcoming SITW feature.
