Aviation bookshops

Hello,

To research, to write books, to make the lay-out… are already several professions (I was nevertheless helped by great specialists like Neil Page for the translation, Thierry Dekker for the color-artwork), but to distribute them is another specialty, and probably the most difficult for a simple author. Maybe, some members of this forum could have advices in that direction, and your ideas would be most welcomed.
Our latest books, "In the Skies of France" (a Chronicle of JG 2), and "Storming the Bombers (a Chronicle of JG 4) are already offered by several well-known bookshops like,
in the UK: Aviation bookshop, Midland Counties, Aviation Book Centre, Military History Books
in the USA: Flight Line Hobbies, Aeroplane Books, Aberdeen Bookstore
in Canada: Mr. Fedorowicz, Aviation World
in Australia: Hylands Bookshop
… and directly by myself;

but there are many more aviation or museums bookshops, that I have not contacted because I even do not know their existence. So, if you know shops that might be interested to propose our books, don't hesitate to post here (or via private messages) your suggestions. They would be most helpful.
Thanks

Erik Mombeeck (www.luftwaffe.be)

Re: Aviation bookshops

Hi Phil, Hi Nick,

Thank you for your replies, they are much appreciated. I did not know these shops (thanks too for the link) and will contact them today.
There are certainly bookshops (aviation or even world war) in big cities like New-York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Tokyo of Cape Town…, or museum bookshops which would worth well to be contacted.
Any suggestion would be - for sure - of interest for our community.
Best regards

Erik
