Come join the festivities on May 14th as the Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime celebrates publication of
Chesapeake Crimes: Storm Warning,
the seventh volume in the multiple award-winning Chesapeake Crimes series.
Authors Donna Andrews, Shaun Taylor Bevins, Maddi Davidson, Linda Ensign, Barb Goffman, Adam Meyer, Lauren R. Silberman, Alan Orloff, KM Rockwood, Marianne Wilski Strong, Art Taylor, and Robin Templeton will talk about their stories in this new anthology and sign copies. Other authors with stories in the book (who unfortunately can't attend) are Timothy Bentler-Jungr, Carla Coupe, and Kim Kash. Editors Donna Andrews, Barb Goffman, and Marcia Talley all will be in attendance.
The book is being published
on April 26th by Wildside Press.
In this anthology you'll find short stories in which crime and the weather intersect in a deadly fashion. We've got murder and theft during blizzards, hurricanes, dust storms, and more. Stories in prior volumes in the Chesapeake Crimes series have won the Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Derringer awards. We have high hopes for this volume's stories, too. Lynn Farris of the Examiner.com said the book is "a jewel of short stories" and she was "blown away by the descriptive writing, the ability to create tension, and the character studies." She recommends the anthology "for book clubs due to the wealth of issues to be discussed."
Don't miss this chance to join the celebration, buy a copy for yourself (and some as gifts) and get the authors' signatures. Independent bookstore Mystery Loves Company will be on hand to sell books, so you can support a local business at the same time.
Light food and refreshments will be served.
Attendance is FREE.
The event is open to the public.
