Mary Kay Andrews to launch new book Sunday at Decatur library
Mary Kay Andrews, the Avondale Estates chick-lit maven also known as Kathy Trocheck, will throw herself a launch party this Sunday at the Decatur Library for her 21st novel, “Christmas Bliss.”
Sounds like a tasteful affair, in the MKA way. As her newsletter says.
“We’ll be decorating the Decatur Library launch-pad with my own vintage Christmas decorations. Yep. Aluminum Christmas trees, lights, the works. We’re loading my favorite Christmas tunes on the iPod too–so you know that means the playlist will include Darlene Love’s version of White Christmas, and her inimitable Christmas, (Baby Please Come Home) plus the Ronettes singing I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and Eartha Kitt’s, Santa Baby.”
For 25 bucks you get a copy of the book, drinks, food, desserts and a swag bag—a staple of her book launches. Order your tickets by calling (770) 516-9989 or purchase online at www.foxtalebookshoppe.com.
The fun starts at 7 p.m.
As far as the story goes, it’s full of romance and drama. Andrews provides this synopsis: “The story starts a week before Christmas, with Weezie planning her Christmas Eve wedding to long-time love Daniel. Her maid-of-honor BeBe has a major life change underway too–she’s pregnant with charter boat captain Harry Sorrentino’s baby, but is resolutely refusing to take a third trip down the aisle, despite the pleas of everybody in her life, including Harry and Weezie.”
