LONESTAR is an indie bookstore that sells books by popular authors, with a focus on science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
It opened in February 2017, and in March of this year it raised $10 million in funding from Andreessen Horowitz.
Its first book was “The Nightingale” by David Mitchell, the first of four books that LONER Books hopes to sell to other publishers in the coming year.
I spoke with LONestar’s founder, Lauren DeFilippis, about what it’s like to create and market a brand new book, and how LONES books can help writers find a niche.VICE: Tell me about LONESSAR.LONESTARD: We started the brand after our co-founder, Daniel DeFoppa, was looking for an outlet for his poetry and had found a small but vibrant niche for it online.
We thought, Why not make a book about that?
We started working with writers in a number of genres, including literary fiction, memoir, short stories, and nonfiction.
We started with one author, and have had some great collaborations.
I started a couple of books with my co-author, and she’s had a lot of success with them.
The next book was a collaboration with Neil Gaiman, and we’re also working with a couple other authors, including Kate Beaton, the author of the book “The Dark.”LONESSARS first book, “The Evening,” is an introduction to the works of David Mitchell.
The book, which was published in June, is the first in a series that will expand the range of LONERS books, and will also include books by other authors.
What I like about this book is that it’s an introduction that’s very simple to understand.
It’s about what’s going on with a character in the world.
It does not have an epic scope.
But there are some pretty big events going on that are happening in the novel, and you’re not just reading about them.
It was written for people who want to learn more about the characters, and the events that are taking place, and why.
And then we expanded on it in a few more books, starting with “The End of Time.”
It’s a short story collection, but it also includes a short novel that was written as a kind of an homage to the book, with some of the same characters, as well as some new characters.
And it’s also very much a literary collection, which is very much about what you can do with a short book.
And I love that the book is about people coming together.
It has a lot in common with the way that people write about other people and what they think of other people.
And that was a big part of what I wanted to explore.
The book’s got a very clear narrative structure.
We were trying to make it clear that it wasn’t about what the characters are going through, or how they are feeling.
The focus is on what is happening in this world and what’s happening with other people in this city, and with the things that are going on around the city.
I think that’s really important.
Lonestars first book is called “The Nights,” and it’s about the author’s father, who has a terminal illness, and his attempt to keep the family afloat.
He starts a blog, and posts stories that he reads, and writes about what he thinks, and then he takes them to his dying father, to talk about the things he thinks are important to him.
And he tells stories about his father.
I love the way he writes.
His writing is always moving and it always surprises you.
I really like that.
I also love the fact that he’s kind of a little introvert, so the book has a different tone, with more of a serious tone.
The narrator, John, is a really quiet narrator, and he’s not really speaking.
He’s really writing.
I’ve also been influenced by the way people write in fiction.
People will sometimes write like, I don’t know if it’s my style, but I write a lot.
And so I’m trying to try to be more in that vein.
I wanted the narrator to be really quiet.LONS books are not meant to be read simultaneously.
But I do like the fact they are a way for people to connect.
I don ‘t like to read them at the same time.
I would have liked to have been able to read the book on my own.LONDIS: It’s interesting that you chose to focus on short stories.
Short stories have always been an important part of your publishing, because they give you a more personal feel.
Why did you decide to focus exclusively on short fiction?LONDESS: We didn’t really start with short stories as our primary target audience, but we have been very influenced by short fiction in the past, because it’s so
