Yesterday I had a customer asking to place a request on the latest book of her favorite author. It was so new that we did not have an order record for a request. Then I thought of Authors Alerts. Here you can sign up, choose your favorite authors and receive emails whenever Harris County gets a new title by your selected authors. You will find the link under the tab, Books & Media. Try it out.
