This Week in Our Galaxy   
One author visits in-store tonight, and we prepare for our many outside events


Last week we shared some of our upcoming outside events with you which include the Southern California Writer's Conference in Newport Beach and Women & Words in West LA. This week read details about our next Ladies, Lunch, and Literacy event in Manhattan Beach and Long Beach Comic Con ... both coming up later this month ... for you and our staff!


This week is the perfect week to stop by and see what has just arrived on our shelves (and is available via our website for your eReading pleasure). While a complete list is on our website, some of the titles of particular interest for upcoming author events include Perfidia by James Ellroy; EXO by Steven Gould; and Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz. 


Also David Bajo's medical thriller, Mercy 6, is hot off the press for tonight's launch party at MGSD.  Read more about how this "great reads genre" novel affected "Shelf Awareness's" contributing editor Robert Gray here.


Have a great week. We look forward to seeing you in our store and communities ... and we thank you very much for your continued support.

Help us launch David Bajo Tonight!  

It's a party in celebration of David Bajo's third novel, Mercy 6, on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:00pm. This chilling medical thriller involves four people who all collapse and die at once in a Los Angeles hospital. Dr. Anna Mendenhall suspects it's not a contagion and when outside agencies keep the hospital in lockdown, she realizes it's not fear of exposure but determination to keep her quiet. David's fiction has been translated into ten languages and he currently teaches creative writing at The University of South Carolina.

Next Week: 

September continues with events for Lauren Buekes, Steven Gould (on Thursday!), Chelsea Cain, Anna Carey and Gretchen McNeil, and James Ellroy.
