Barringer Publishing brought out the treats, sweets for every taste in great, decadent quantity with popcorn and drinks. It was a real theater experience at Pelican Marsh Community Center where about a hundred guests enjoyed the opening night of Hallmark's Garage Sale Stalker on a large screen television.
Author Suzi Weinert is a member of the Naples Press Club and started her celebrity journey with a draft of her book presented to a friend and agent who passed it on to a publisher and a production company and the rest is history.
The mystery novel is a lot more nefarious and frightening than the television version that was modified for family viewing. Weinert appears in inconspicuous spots during the movie where she and a few friends know she was there for the filming. One such cameo was her photo in a family photo album.
The premier celebration, attended by Naples Press Club members and friends celebrated the success of one of their own. A new book by Weinert is ready, Garage Sale Diamonds. Whispered rumors suggest a television series, the modern "Murder She Wrote," Garage Sale version and inspiration.
