In our last email newsletter we raised the question of the effect of the online vs. printed MLB News and the fact that we seemed to be getting less response, in terms of orders, from the online version. A number of customers wrote it with various comments. We appreciate the time that each of you took to respond.
One idea raised was making the online MLB News interactive such that you could click on links in the News that would either put the book in your shopping cart or simply take you to the page for that book on the website. This is certainly feasible but would require some amount of work. Any thoughts on whether you think this would make you likelier to place an order?
Mystery Scene magazine has a special offer for a free, sample copy. Naturally, since we write a column for them we think they're the best mystery magazine around but you can judge for yourself by getting a sample.
Here's what you can find at www.mysterylovers.com:
The next Saturday, January 17, we'll welcome back Caroline Todd who is half of the mother and son writing team known as Charles Todd.

The Coffee & Crime breakfast is sold out, however you are invited to join us at 10:30 for the talk and signing.
We have a very special evening coming up in February with author T.C. Boyle and we wanted to give our online subscribers a head start on the tickets.
Friday, February 13 T.C. Boyle will give a talk and signing of his new book, The Women, at the Oakmont Carnegie Library at 7 pm. Boyle, the author of ten novels including Road to Wellville and The Inner Circle, is a noted speaker and his subject will be Frank Lloyd Wright. The Women tells the story of Wright's tempestuous life through the perspective of the four women in his life: his three wives and his mistress.
Tickets for T.C. Boyle's talk and signing are $31 and include a copy of the book, The Women. Companion tickets, which do not include the book, are $9 and are only available when purchasing regular tickets.
Best wishes for the new year .
Richard, Mary Alice and the MLB Staff
