Dear %%First Name%%,
The 16th Annual Festival of Mystery is scheduled for Monday, May 2 and we've got a wonderful lineup of authors both old and new to delight you.
Over the years our expenses for the Festival have gone up every year but we've held the line on ticket price. Well, it's finally time to up our ticket price which will become $8 in advance, $9 at the door.
Place your order for Festival tickets this week and you can buy as many as you like for the old price, $7.
Meanwhile, we invite you to peruse our list of attendees as you make your plans for this years Festival. As always, the first 100 customers through the door will receive our famous Bag o' Books filled with choice volumes from our cooperating publishers.
This Week's Special represents the return of a popular character who has been missing from the author's books for several years. She's back and you can find out what's happened to her in the Weekly Special along with 20% savings and free shipping.
Our Weekly Special for Kids is a Caldecott winner with a surprising tale of the best sick day ever--really. You can pick up this wonderful volume at a 20% savings with free shipping, but only if you order this week.
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.
The February-March issue of the MLB News is now available for download, complete with corrections provided by the ever-vigilent Comma-kaze Squad. When you download this issue you'll notice something else, too: we're now in color.
Hope you like the snazzy new look and hope you'll find lots to order in the new issue.
Also on the website this week you'll find a set of Staff Picks for March with an assortment of mysteries and more.
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.
New Arrivals reflect the arrival of a few more new March titles. You'll find titles by Mary Daheim, William Bernhardt, Jonathan Kellerman and others.
Exciting news in British books with the arrival of The Chalice of Blood by Peter Tremayne, a new Sister Fidelma. In July a new book by Tremayne will be published in England, Behold a Pale Horse, a hardcover and the 20th book in the series. We suggest you preorder now if you're interested.
