*************************************************************************

WWK is proud of our four Agatha nominees. Kaye George for Best Short Story--not her first time to be nominated, Connie Berry and Grace Topping for Best First Mystery Novel (wish they weren't having to compete against each other), and Annette Dashofy for Best Contemporary Novel--her fifth nomination!


Congratulations to our writers for the following publications:

Look for Kaye George and Margaret S. Hamilton's short stories in the new Mid-Century Murder by Darkhouse Books. Kaye's story is "Life and Death on the Road" and Margaret's story is titled "4BR/3.5BA Contemporary."


Kaye George's first novel in the Vintage Sweets mystery series, Revenge is Sweet, will be released on March 10th. Look for the interview here on March 11.


Grace Topping's second novel in Laura Bishop staging series, Staging Wars, will be released by Henery Press on April 28th. Look for the interview here on April 29th.


Don't miss Shari Randall's "The Queen of Christmas" available on at Amazon. Shari's holiday story for WWK was too long so she published it for our enjoyment. It's available for 99 cents or on Kindle Unlimited for free!


KM Rockwood's "The Society" and "To Die A Free Man; the Story of Joseph Bowers" are included in the BOULD Awards Anthology, which was released on November 19. KM won second place with a cash prize for "The Society." Congratulations, KM!

Kaye George's "Grist for the Mill" was published in A Murder of Crows anthology, edited by Sandra Murphy on October 9th.



Shari Randall will be writing again for St. Martin's, perhaps under a pseudonym. We look forward to reading Shari's Ice Cream Shop Mystery series debuting next year. Congratulations, Shari!

Change is in the Wind

We live our lives based on the decisions we make—and the decisions we make by not choosing when we had the chance. Jordaina Sydney Robinson, our Friday blogger, has had one major decision to address recently. She was offered a big promotion at work—and she accepted the new challenges the promotion will entail.

One of the challenges of her promotion will be more hours working at that job, leaving less time for other things. Since she wanted to maintain her actual fiction-writing time, something else had to go. Jordaina decided one of the somethings would have to be her active participation in the Writers Who Kill blog.

As you know, she has anchored our Friday spot. All of us at the WWK blog wish Jordaina the best in her new job responsibilities, her creative life and life in general. We hope she will rejoin us on a Welcome Wednesday here and there to continue to share her thoughts.

Her decision has meant the rest of us had some to make as well, specifically, finding a replacement for Jordaina. We agreed early on we wanted to find someone to participate with the WWK blog on an equal partnership with we three remaining founders. We also wanted to add someone to our group with a bit different perspective to provide both our readers and ourselves additional learning opportunities.

We believe we have struck pay dirt.

Starting next Friday, Ramona Long will join WWK and blog on Fridays. Many of you may already know or know of Ramona. For everyone else, stop by next Friday when in her inaugural post she will introduce herself.

I am tickled to be joining Writers Who Kill.

I also congratulate Jordaina on her promotion and wish her much luck with her ventures, both writing and non.
