Now that Fall is here and the colder weather is starting to settle in, it’s the perfect time to reflect back on summer and remember what a great season we had. Some of our favorite authors including Mary Alice Monroe, Dorthea Benton Frank, Diane Chamberlain paid us a visit, and we had some new authors like Valerie Tripp. We read some great books, met some wonderful people, and even managed to see the beach a few times. Here’s a video of some of our favorite summer memories.
Our friend Sharon from Createadore Videos and On The Beach Photography put together a wonderful video from the Mary Alice Monroe signing at Silver Coast Winery. Take a look at all the great fun we had and don’t forget if you didn’t pick up your copy of The Summer Girls that night we still have plenty at the bookstore!
Mary Alice Monroe’s latest book The Summer Girls hit shelves yesterday, June 25th. It is the first in the Lowcountry Summer Trilogy. Already it’s made several “Best Summer Reads” lists, including CBS and affiliates in Baltimore, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Southern Living, Azalea, and Charleston Magazines.
Mary Alice plans on spending a long summer on the road promoting this books, and as well she should. It’s wonderful and she has so many stories to tell her readers about the research she did with dolphins for this book. She is also giving away a weekend for two, including airfare, to Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, a dolphin sunset cruise and a meet and greet with her.
