Renovations have started for a new bookstore that will open in downtown Lubbock this fall. Wild Lark Books, located at the end of Broadway, will soon be filled with bespoke treasures.
On Facebook, they posted:
2,500 square feet. 5,000 pounds. 495 feet of shelves. 800 square foot meeting space for events and private rentals. Full kitchen. Deposit. And so many souvenirs and cups of tea to prepare and enjoy! We are moving forward with the construction plans and are staying the course for our opening in mid-November.
It will not only be a bookstore, but also a publisher for independent authors. Which means that for all of your authors, they will help you publish, but you will retain the rights to your book and earn higher royalties on all sales.
But how did it start, you ask? On their site it is written:
Wild Lark Strategies started in 2018 as a sales and marketing consulting firm serving small and medium-sized businesses. In 2019, Wild Lark Books founder Brianne van Reenen traveled to Scotland’s most northerly corner and uncovered tales from her ancestral past in a damp and crowded bookstore run by a comfortably perched Scotsman. behind an imposing pile of thorns reading his a newspaper. It was then that Wild Lark Books began to take shape.
After seeing many authors in the writing community spend years relentlessly trying to get represented through an agent and petitioners for publication through traditional channels, the vision of Wild Lark Books grew up.
In addition to all of these opportunities located at 513 Broadway Street, they also launched the Wild Lark Books Fund. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the voices of historically underserved writers to the table. The goal, to make it adorable and accessible to everyone to be published.
