Fall and winter are busy seasons for publishers who are hoping for bigger sales of new books during the holidays.
David Baldacci, a well-known author of thrillers, visited the Capital Region this week.
We caught up with him at a book signing at the book house in Stuyvesant Plaza.
His new book Long Road to Mercy introduces a new FBI agent named Atlee Pine who must solve a crime in the Grand Canyon.
Baldacci told NewsChannel 13 why he loves to support independent book sellers.
"I haven't been to Albany before in book tour,” he said. “I love to see more independent book shops. The book tour this year is pretty much comprised only of independent, they're kind of the lifeblood of this industry so it's nice to give back."
Baldacci also says the biggest growth area in publishing now is in audio books. People can listen in the car or on-the-go on many devices.
