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 "Meeting on the Funicular" is also in this anthology, which can be bought for 99 cents on Kindle until November 30.


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!

An Irish Blessing: a photo essay

By Margaret S. Hamilton
 
May the road rise to meet you,
 
 
Galway
Jaunting Cart, Killarney National Park
St. Stephen's Green Dublin
 
may the wind be ever at your back.
Dun Aenghus Fortress, Inismor, Aran Islands
Cliffs of Moher
Giant's Causeway
 
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
 
Kylemore Abbey, Connemara
Blarney Castle
Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge
 
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
 
Clonmacnoise
Connemara
Muckross Lake, Killarney
 
And until we meet again,
Rock of Cashel
 
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
 
Kylemore Abbey garden
Muckross House garden
Belfast Botanical Garden

Thanks for stirring up vivid memories! It's been a few years since I've been in Ireland.

Ireland was the first overseas trip I ever took. My sister & I, as young teens, went to visit family friends. We flew over in a prop plane, very modern at the time, and stayed in Galway. Since then, I've been back a few times, and loved every trip.

I can almost feel the mist.

It was a grand journey indeed

Very Lovely, Margaret. I have not been to Ireland and hope to rectify that some day.

Kait said...

What lovely photos and an excellent way to start the day. Thank you, Margaret.

Kathleen, Ireland's biggest industry is tourism and the whole country is geared for visitors. You would be amazed and pleased with all the changes. Galway was jumping the afternoon we visited.

Stella, a memorable journey!

Jim, it's a great trip with enough cliffs, rocks, and prehistoric forts to keep you fit. Seabird nesting season is in the spring. We saw very few birds in October.

Kait, Ireland was serene, welcoming, and friendly with wonderful farm to table cuisine.

Kaye George said...

What a charming presentation with the Irish Blessing! Great photos, too. Thanks for the virtual trip.

It looks like you had a lovely holiday. I'm so happy for you. I've never been to Ireland, and it looks like a lovely place to visit.
