Author MaryJanice Davidson comes to Schuler Books & Music tonight

Cadence Jones is not your everyday cop. Her special talent sets
her apart from the crowd and that talent is — insanity.

Jones, the main character of MaryJanice Davidson’s new book “Me,
Myself and Why,” is not the only crazy one. “Everyone in the book has some sort
of special talent. Hers just happens to be the multiple personalities she turns
into that help her solve crimes and mysteries,” says Whitney Spotts, promotions
coordinator at Schuler Books & Music.

Tonight, Schuler Books & Music invites vampire literature
enthusiasts to welcome Davidson to a Girls’ Night Out event. “Everyone is
welcome,” Spotts says. “Girls Night Out is a monthly series we have here at the
bookstore that targets female authors and female literature. It’s typically an
author talking about her book and the new series and where she might be
continuing with it. She may or may not read a little. It really depends on the
author. Then, we plan to have a quick question-and-answer session.”

With the genre of “vampire chick lit,” or supernatural romantic
literature, becoming increasingly popular among young adults — especially
females — Davidson brings something new to the table. Being a New York Times
best-selling author, she presents paranormal romance while still maintaining
wit and humor. “Her style is very funny, definitely chick-lit,” Spotts says.
“Fun, fast-paced with a supernatural edge to it. I think you’re always gonna
get her sassy edge.

“She’s always adding something different. (‘Me, Myself and Why’)
is kinda different in the sense that it’s more of a mystery than a supernatural
book, but it’s still similar in some ways. It’s still has her fun, mischievous
