A couple of years ago, my husband and I vacationed in California. We had a great time seeing a lot of beautiful sights. If you’re lucky enough to be out in the San Diego area >>> there are so many wonderful places to visit: San Diego Zoo, Point Loma Lighthouse, and the missions, just to mention a few.
If you’re a Cozy Mystery reader in the San Diego area on Saturday – August 22 at 2:00 PM this year, you have one more terrific activity in store for you: several Cozy Mystery authors are getting together at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore for a book signing!
Ellen Byron, author of the new Plantation Shudders Mystery Series, kindly let me know about this terrific book signing. Her first novel, Plantation Shudders, will introduce her sleuth, Maggie (short for Magnolia) Crozat, as she returns back to her family plantation which is now a family-run bed and breakfast.
Daryl Wood Gerber (aka Avery Aames) will also be attending this joint signing. Most of you already recognize both of her Cozy Mystery author names. As Daryl Wood Gerber she writes the very popular Cookbook Nook Mystery Series. Jenna Hart is at it again, solving whodunnits in Fudging the Books. As Avery Aames, she writes the equally popular Cozy Mystery Series: the Cheese Shop Mystery Series.
As if this San Diego book signing couldn’t get any better, enter Diane Vallere! Vallere writes the ultra popular Material Girl Mystery Series. Poly (as in Polyester!) Monroe will need to find out who killed her good friend’s husband in Crushed Velvet. Diane Vallere also writes the following Cozy series: the Costume Shop Mystery Series, the Mad for Mod Mystery Series, and the Style & Error Mystery Series.
Can this book signing get any better (you may ask)? Yes! Nancy Cole Silverman will be joining the other three authors at this fun event. Silverman just released Beyond a Doubt – which follows reporter Carol Childs as she tries to uncover who is responsible for the murder of several girls in Hollywood. Yow! This mystery has been described as an exciting “nail-biter”.
So – for those of you lucky enough to be in the San Diego area at 2:00 PM on August 22 – head on over to the Mysterious Galaxy bookstore (at 5943 Balboa Ave – Suite 100, San Diego, California) to meet a wonderful line-up of mystery authors!
