November 2016 - Holiday in Boonsboro Newsletter
Header_newsletter2 2

Fall has been good to us here at Turn the Page, allowing for lots of beautiful days enjoyed by November Newsletter Halloweenlocals and visitors alike. In fact, one of those days happened to be our Fall Signing, just before Halloween. This meant Nora, Kat and even Bruce felt compelled to go all out with their costumes. The only problem is that there are now lots of pictures floating around with Nora wearing a wig that looks pretty darn real. So the answer is no, Nora has not changed her look! She was just Black Widow for the day.  

Now we’re gearing up for Girls’ Night Out, the Holiday in Boonsboro Signing, and, of course, the big ship out of Island of Glass, Book 3 of The Guardians Trilogy. We are also taking pre-orders for some of Nora’s 2017 releases such as Echoes in Death and Come Sundown, so check out our website for the opportunity to order signed copies of these highly anticipated titles. Most of you know just how low tech we are here at the bookstore, so if you’re pre-ordering “future books” with something more current, it’s best to order them separately so you don’t have to wait any longer than necessary.

We will be featuring Island of Glass at our December 3rd signing, a few days ahead of its December 6th release. And we just received permission to sell 50 copies of Island of Glass at Girls’ Night Out this coming Thursday the 17th from 6-9pm (limit one per attendee).

November Newsletter Cup of TeaWith the holidays upon us, the staff at TTP wishes to thank you for your devoted support of our small business, the amazing authors we represent, and the romance genre as a whole. Your enthusiasm keeps us going in so many ways! Wishing you blessings, peace and a comfy place to read this season and throughout the year.

So please stop in to see us if you’re planning a trip to the area, whether it’s for one of our events or just a quiet afternoon get away. We love books, all kinds of books, and we know you do, too!
