Our Mermaids In The Media this week features our literary gal pal, Mary Kay Andrews! MKA’s latest, Spring Fever, is #5 with a bullet! No, MKA didn’t do in one of her male leads, but her latest book is #5 on the New York Times Best Sellers List and it’s so hot it’s set off a Spring Fever epidemic!
MKA has been crisscrossing the country on her book tour, but I just had to reach out to her when I spied this mention in the June issue of Deep South Magazine. The article detailed different beaches that had inspired famous writers. The article talked about Tennessee Williams and Key West, Pat Conroy and Daufuskie Island, Edgar Allen Poe and Sullivan Island and others. Then, lo and behold, out popped this, “Newer on the Southern literary scene but making just as big a splash with her classic beach reads is Mary Kay Andrews. The best-selling author lives part of the time on Tybee Island and has featured the island and the Georgia coast in several of her books, like “Savannah Breeze.” Andrews’ Tybee beach cottage, The Breeze Inn, is available for rent.”
Then, I logged onto Facebook and up popped photos of MKA at various book signings. Check her out! She was wearing this very chic, little black dress and had layered strands of pearls from the new jewelry line at Seaside Sisters! I had to blink my eyes and check the alcohol content in my iced tea! Our ink slinger has always been stylish, but I swear she was channeling Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s!
MKA is still signing books, but she’s closer to home and you can come see her in person when she signs copies of Spring Fever on Tybee Island. Join us on Thursday, July 5th, at Seaside Sisters from 5 to 7 p.m. The Cheerwine and other southern decadences will be served along with MKA’s latest junking finds. Heck, you can even stroll by Breeze Inn, her Tybee Island home, and see where a lot of the magic happens! Give us a call and we’ll let you know when you can rent it for your next Tybee visit, too!
