Wait, some good news: a new bookstore

mysterious-galaxy-build.jpgAt Saturday's launch party for Laura Levine's 10th Jaine Austen mystery, Pampered to Death, the book sales were handled by the San Diego store Mysterious Galaxy. They brought some news. A second store is opening this summer on Artesia Boulevard in Redondo Beach. The new place will have 4,000 square feet in a space shared with a coffee house and cafe. It's being built out now — follow progress on their blog — with soft opening coming soon followed by a grand opening in October.
