Wow! Mind boggling that it's been a year since the Blue Plate Special: Pops' Girls series debuted. Actually, it's been 13 months, since the first novel released in May '06. I was feeling a bit nostalgic about the series, and working with two great authors-- Shara Jones and Meg Allison, so today, I thought I'd post the series blurbs, and a link to the Pops' Girls website.
