I learned two things from a Tweet by Pamela K. Kinney: (a) that Creatures n Crooks Bookshoppe will host a multi-author signing on September 12, and (b) Creatures ‘n Crooks will close at the end of September.
This merited both a “COOL!: and a “Bummer!” response.
I’ve never personally been to Creatures ‘n Crooks Bookshoppe, but as someone who enjoys both reading and writing horror and mystery I knew of it. If I ever made a Haunt Jaunt to Virginia (which is on my list of things to do) I hoped to make a Jaunt to the bookstore.
Now it looks like I won’t be able to. Unless I hurry up and plan a Jaunt to Virginia before the end of September, but that doesn’t seem likely.
However, if you’ll be in the area and have never been, I highly recommend checking it out. Bonus, according to their website everything in the store is on sale.
And if you want to attend their last big multi-author book signing, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on September 12 Creatures ‘n Crooks will host 15 horror and mystery writers. (Including Pamela Kinney, whose name may sound familiar because I interviewed about her books Haunting Virginia and Haunting Richmond.)
