Death Before the Fact - sleuthing tea at Mystery Ink bookstore

Mystery Ink Bookstore

I was at Pamela's Tea Room today at a meeting with mystery author DJ Piper and Debbie Mitsch, owner of indie bookstore Mystery Ink in Huntington Beach, CA. The purpose of the visit was to see if there was anything our little arts nonprofit (Whimsicalidocious) could do to help the bookstore at a time it is in as much peril as the victims in the stories it sells. The following is what came of our chat ... It's my story and I'm stickin' to it:

Mystery Ink is known for its author events. They are the bread and butter of the bookstore that has weathered decades of uncertainty to stay afloat. Authors are clamoring to get back to the shop to give talks and sell their books.
There's just one hitch. As soon as a writer is booked, they drop dead, and the event never takes place.
I mentioned to Debbie that we have a cache of bright and dedicated Tea & Sympathy Investigative Agency detectives on hand who would most likely be delighted to help solve her mystery and problem. And they work for tea! Join us, won't you? The bookstore needs us!

Cost is $37.75 for card-carrying T&SIA agents, $39.95 for all others.
