Dear %%First Name%%,
With yet another winter storm having swept through we thought that the Weekly Special should turn to lighter topics. This week we've got the latest in a hilarious series that features an antiques dealer and her eccehtric mother. Place your order for the Weekly Special now and get this terrific book at a 20% savings with free shipping, too.
Our Weekly Special for Kids is a charming going to bed book with plenty of opportunities for adults and kids to practice animal sounds. You can pick up this wonderful volume at a 20% savings with free shipping, but only if you order this week.
Due to scheduling issues Linda's event will now be held at the store and there is no charge. If you have already paid for the event we'll deduct that from your purchases that evening.
We will have all of Linda's books available for sale at the event. Please do not bring copies of Silent Mercy purchased elsewhere to our event.
The Malice Domestic committee has announced the nominees for this year's Agatha Award for cozy mystery. As in past years quite a few of the nominees will be appearing at our Festival of Mystery in May including Donna Andrews, Louise Penny, Heather Webber, Avery Aames and Alan Orloff.
On our Agatha Awards 2011 page you'll find the complete list of Best Novel, Best First and Best Critical/Biographical.
Congratulations to all the nominess.
The 16th Annual Festival of Mystery is coming up on Monday, May 2. As always, we'll need plenty of volunteers to make this great event work. In particular, we need able bodied folks, able to carry boxes weighing anywhere up to 30 pounds or so, for an hour or so on Sunday, May 1. In addition we need folks all day long on Monday to set-up, work during the Festival and help break down and carry back to the store.
If you are interested please email or call us, 412 828 4877, and give us your contact info and whether you can work Sunday, Monday or both.
No sooner had we received the last of February's New Arrivals then we began to get significant numbers of March books..
Plenty of choices from the likes of Joy Fielding, Jesse Kellerman, Andrew Gross and others.
Our British New Arrivals this week starts with an unusual treat from Peter May. The Blackhouse does not belong to either of his series and is set on the Isle of Lewis, the most remote and forbidding of the Hebrides. A brutal murder, similar to one in Edinburgh, results in a young policeman being dispatched to this remote island where the weather is the least of his problems.
Also in from Britian: Susanna Gregory, Barbara Nadel and Rory Clements.
Like the earlier novels, Prey on Patmos, is set in Greece and features Inspector Andreas Kaldis who travels to the island of the title to investigate the murder of a monk.
Please join us for some delicious munchies as well as a chance to meet Jeffery and pick up a signed copy of the book.
