Alan Orloff - Crime Readers Caught Reading Crime... an indie bookstore.

Today's crime reader/writer is also a regular reader here at the blog. I'm always so flattered to hear that. Alan Orloff made quite a splash last year with his debut novel, DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD, which was nominated for an Agatha Award.  This year he's kicked off a new series with his book KILLER ROUTINE.

But today Alan's kicking back at a new bookstore with an old friend.

There’s a new indie bookstore in North Arlington, VA, called One More Page Books, and it’s a welcome newcomer to the scene. Led by owner Eileen McGervey, the entire staff is friendly and fun-loving, and ready to recommend a great book. And what goes well with books? Wine and chocolate, of course, both carried by the store (yes, they stock bacon chocolate!). They’ve been very supportive to the local mystery community and really know how to sponsor a great author event. I had a tough choice to make, but I finally settled on Edge by master storyteller Jeffery Deaver. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a book to read…

Shhhh, Alan's reading! So now would be a good time for you to read as well! Many thanks to Alan for participating with us this month and sharing a great bookstore as well as a great author.

Hope everyone's having a great reading week. Happy Reading.

Hmmm...bacon chocolate...I'm going to have to think about that. Always nice to see this feature, Jen.

Have to "second that emotion" about One More Page bookstore. They will be helping me launch my new series in September.

Authors and readers are SO happy to welcome this charming new bookstore.

I'm a big fan of Alan's, but I must confess, the very idea of bacon chocolate distracts me away from even his fine books.

Can't get any better than bacon chocolate and books! Great pic of Alan. :)

This is where Jenn was caught reading, too! I've heard so much about this store. My brothers live in Arlington so I'll have to go next time I visit them. And I'll have to sample that bacon chocolate. Maybe I'll just ask one of my brothers to ship some to me so I won't have to wait.

Yay! Another shout-out for One More Page! Oh, and the bacon chocolate is quite delicious!

Thanks for keeping things active while I was gone everyone. I'll have more pictures next week!

I can't wait to read Deaver's latest. Great choice!
