I hope you checked out the posts from all of the mystery writers while I was on vacation, the guest blogs that talked about their summer reading. There were some wonderful book suggestions. You can pick up most of the books through the Web Store. https://store.poisonedpen.com
Those authors talked about books from the past, the present, and, even some forthcoming titles. One of the authors, Cara Black, was in Paris when I was, and I saw her at WHSmith, where she talked about her latest mystery, Murder in Saint-Germain.
That really brings me to the point of this post. Cara appears at the Poisoned Pen when her new books are released. So, do a number of other authors. Nelson DeMille, author of the current #1 title on The New York Times Best Seller list, The Cuban Affair, will be here this week. Barbara Peters, owner of The Poisoned Pen. tries to bring in the greatest authors with their latest books. And, she introduces readers to new authors. That’s why it’s always interesting to pick up Marilyn Stasio’s column in The New York Times. Her recent column, “The Latest and Greatest in Crime Fiction”, featured reviews of Attica Locke’s Bluebird, Bluebird, Anne Perry’s An Echo of Murder, and Julia Keller’s Fast Falls the Night. https://nyti.ms/2yxHgOc
All of those authors appeared just recently at The Poisoned Pen. Signed copies of their books are available through the Web Store. You can see the videos of their appearances on Livestream. https://livestream.com/poisonedpen
Take advantage of The Poisoned Pen. Show up at the events to see “The Latest and Greatest”. Watch them on Livestream if you can’t get here. Buy their books through the Web Store. https://store.poisonedpen.com
It’s always a treat to meet “The Latest and Greatest” at The Poisoned Pen. I hope you can make it to the bookstore someday.
