You know, dear readers, we Wickeds haven’t been blogging together all that long. Four years this May, is that right? And though Jessie, Barb and Edith (aka Tace Baker) had published books prior to the Wickeds forming, this blog coincided with the launching of several series. 2016 was a bumper crop for all of us, and 2017 promises to top this year. So we thought today we’d celebrate this past year, and give you some books to look forward to in 2017.

Readers: What’s on your docket for this year’s reading? And were you able to keep up with all our 2016 publications? (Don’t worry, it’s not quiz!)
You gals just keep adding to my t-b-r list all the time! Thanks…
Thanks for all your support Gram! It means the world!
This was great. I was able to update my book list with the 2017 titles I didn’t already have. Yes, I’m up to date with all 2016 books that I’ve read. And I love that I see new series coming from this group.
Thanks for all your support Dru! We’re happy to help keep you busy!
I love that you have read all our books, Dru Ann! Thank you. And we’ll certainly keep you busy for the foreseeable future.
Wow! What a great 2016 and 2017 is looking even better. What’s on my reading docket it a lot of books by the looks of your lists! 🙂 2016 was a great year for me and I don’t want to overstep but I’ve been enjoying your blog daily, I feel right at home here so I’m bursting to share good news – just before Christmas I sold my cozy mystery series. 3 book deal. Okay, that’s all I’ll say here because this is your home on the web not mine. I’m so ready for 2017!
Huge congratulations! Share a bit-what the pub date? Premise?
Thank you! The first book will be released in early 2018 from Kensington. It’s a culinary cozy set in a fictional CT town. I’m beyond thrilled.
Huge congratulations, Debra!
Hooray! It’s not easy these days, so that’s a real tribute to your writing.
Thank you, Sheila. I’m reading Buried in a Bog and I’m loving it. I wasn’t even half-way through when I ordered book 2 and I’m waiting for it to arrive so I can have it ready to read when I’m done with book 1. 🙂
That is wonderful news! Keep us posted and thanks for letting us know!
I’m glad to see I’m up to date on all my Wicked reading!
Thank you, Kim. Not easy to do these days. You are a true friend.
Sherry Harris, it is all you fault!!! I don’t have enough time to keep up with all the authors I have been following and then you introduced me to Wicked Cozy Authors. Love that books I have read and dying to read the rest.
I’d say I’m sorry, but I’m just not! LOL! Thank you for hanging out with us here — so many great books to read!
Thank you for four years of great posts, and best of luck in 2017! Looks like you will all be quite busy.
Thank you, Ramona for all you do for our writing community!
There’s some exciting news there like a second Granite State Mystery. Glad I read the first one last month!
Looking forward to all of these 2017 releases.
I was excited to see that too!
May I mention that Book #4 in my Witch City Mystery series will release January 31? It’s Murder Go Round. Book #5, Grave Errors comes out next August! Writing as fast as I can!
The highlight of 2016 for me was meeting so many of you at Bouchercon in New Orleans.
I read most of the books listed about or will read them this year. I read over 100 books in 2016.
That’s a lot of books! It was WONDERFUL to meet you in New Orleans!
Thanks for providing your 2016 and 2017 titles. I am glad to meet most of you in person at last year’s NOLA Bouchercon. I have read some of the Wickeds and others are on my teetering TBR mountain. And now I have 2017 titles to add to my TBR list…thanks for so many wonderful reads!
Thank you, Grace! I have a teetering TBR pile too!
