Hello Wickeds. We haven’t checked in for awhile on what we’re all working on. Tell us about the latest writing project that is in your computer/on sticky notes stuck to your walls/spread across your dining room table with scribbles on the pages.
Edith/Maddie: I’m on the verge of submitting Batter Off Dead, Country Store #10. I’ve also written three short stories since the new year, for three different calls for submission, and those are polished and sent. Next book up is Cozy Caper Book Group #4, which might or might not include a wedding…
Jessie: I’m just finishing the polished draft on a new novel this week! Next I will turn my attention to the sixth Beryl and Edwina mystery.
Liz: I’ve just begun the sixth Cat Cafe Mystery, and in the mode of being excited about the story! Which just means I haven’t hit the dreaded middle yet…
Sherry: I sent Three Shots to the Wind the third Chloe Jackson Sea Glass Saloon mystery to my independent editor Barb Goffman last week. Since then I’ve been writing a thriller. It’s the first time I’ve written anything long in third person and the first time I’ve used multiple view points. I’m having so much fun.
Barb: I just sent back page proofs for “Scared Off” my novella that will be in the forthcoming Halloween Party Murder, along with stories by Leslie Meier and Lee Hollis. I’m working on blog posts, newsletter, etc for the Shucked Apart release next week. And I’m pecking away on the tenth Maine Clambake Mystery (no title yet) due May 1.
Julie: I just did the copy edits for Wreathing Havoc, and now I’m working on Garden Squad #5, which is due May 1.
Readers: Do you have a project you are working on through the long winter? Are you particularly looking forward to anything we’re working on mentioned above?
