Dear %%First Name%%,
The August-September MLB News has now gone into the mail and if you're a subscriber you should be receiving you're copy any day now. The August-September MLB News is also available for download in PDF format.
In our haste to complete the News, however, we made rather a large goof on the front cover.
The Rebecca Drake publication party is scheduled for Friday, September 14 at 7 pm. The date and time in the News was incorrect. Apologies for the confusion.
Many of you reading this are loyal and frequent customers who value the unique service and selection that Mystery Lovers Bookshop provides. Others of you are perhaps folks who shop occassionally or you may simply have subscribed without ever making a purchase.
For those of you who have an interest in keeping MLB healthy and strong, we've developed a little list of Ten Things You Can Do to Support MLB. Many of you reading this are already doing all these things and to you we say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It is you who have helped us survive through 17 years of a difficult environment for booksellers.

Next time you’re thinking about a gift why not an MLB gift certificate? Available in any amount. Please call 888-800-6078 to order.
If you see that book in a big box store, just say no. They don’t need your money, we do. And we really appreciate your business.

New Arrivals for September are arriving hot and heavy. Paperbacks especially with books by Mary Ellen Hughes, Robert B. Parker, Margaret Coel, Stuart Woods and many other favorites.
Check the New Arrivals page for all that's fresh.
We're pleased to announce a new Fall series of Coffee & Crime author breakfasts on three Saturdays in September and October.
Sept. 8 - We'll lead off with Alison Gaylin and her novel of Hollywood tabloid journalism, Trashed.
Oct. 6 - M.J. Rose will be here with her riveting thriller The Reincarnationist that takes the reader on a wild ride across the centuries and the continents.
Oct. 20 - We'll wrap up the series with James Swain and a standalone thriller Midnight Rambler. Swain's earlier Tony Valentine novels have dealt with casino cheats and scams and he's quite an authority on these shady tactics.
Each event begins at 10 am and includes a continental breakfast, talk and signing for $5. Reservations are essential and you buy tickets on the website.
Happy reading during the lazy days of summer,
Richard, Mary Alice and the MLB Staff
