Dear %%First Name%%,
Over the past few weeks you may have noticed some problems with the website, particularly slow response. We're aware of the issue and we're making plans to relocate to a larger and more powerful server which we hope will improve your experience at www.mysterylovers.com.
Thanks for your patience.
If you've got kids or grandkids you might want to take a look at the Weekly Special for Kids with a charming tale of a pampered house cat who ventures outdoors and finds that things are different than they appear from the window. You can get 20% savings and free shipping this week.
Our Staff Picks for June will give you a good place to start on a list of books for the summer.
The talented and entertaining Craig Johnson will be our guest, for the second time, on Tuesday, June 7 at 7 pm. Craig is the Wyoming-based author of a suspenseful and humorous series featuring sheriff Walt Longmire of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Craig will be here with Hell Is Empty, the seventh book in the series.
Craig not only writes a mean book but is an entertaining storyteller as well and his last event here was a sell-out dinner which brought him many new fans. We're looking forward to a repeat performance this year for his talk and signing.
Please join us if you can.
On Sunday, June 5 at 2 pm we'll be hosting a publication party for Washington DC writer Jackie Richards for The Pinnacle Seven, her debut novel, a Washington thriller.
Please stop by if you can.
After receiving hundreds of responses to our ebook survey and after many conversations both in person and via email with customers we've concluded that we simply must be in the ebook business.

We have further details of the survey as well as background information on various ebook alternatives on the website.
Our thanks to the many customers who took the time to write to us about ebooks.
