What We’re Loving Right NOW…

Okay, the new Mina Lima version of Harry Potter is in and it’s more beautiful than we even thought it would be. It’s going fast so come grab your copy right away! View the video below for a sneak peek!

We’re also loving these novel journals – you have to see ’em to believe ’em (and we appreciate the pocket on the inside cover too. Half price at the store and make the perfect gift!

We’re still taking pre-orders for A Promised Land by Barack Obama. This November 17 release of Obama’s own account of his presidency is expected to be the biggest book of the year, which means it’s also hugely important to order early! In addition, we’ll offer you a $5 discount on pre-orders and your book will be available on release day! If it’s on your list then please call us at 843-875-5115 to reserve your copy ASAP.

More to come on Sunday but let’s get to upcoming events because we have tons of fun starting tonight! First, tonight we have a horror special for you (no, not the debate!) At 6:30 pm our in-store Pulpwood Queens book club is chatting about Grady Hendrix’s The Southern Guide to Slaying Vampires. We have signed bookplates in the store and you can join us here OR via Zoom as Grady will be joining us via Zoom as well!

Steel Magnolias meets Stepford Wives meets Dracula in this ’90s-set horror novel about a women’s book club that must do battle with a mysterious newcomer to their small Southern town, perfect for murderinos and fans of Stephen King. And you’ll recognize plenty of the settings in the book as it takes place in and around Mount Pleasant and Charleston! Join us live in the store at 6:30 OR via Zoom. ALL ARE WELCOME!

We’ll also be chatting about American Dirt – featuring horror and “vampires” of a different sort – for anyone who’s read the book, you know you have more to say…
