KM Rockwood's "Burning Desire," and Paula Gail Benson's "Living One's Own Truth," have been published in the anthology Heartbreaks & Half-truths. Congratulations to all of the WWK writers.


Please join Margaret S. Hamilton's Kings River Life podcast of her short story "Busted at the Book Sale" here. Congratulations, Margaret!


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, and Annette Dashofy for Best Contemporary Novel--her fifth nomination! All are winners but without Agatha Teapots. Onto 20121!


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."

In a bathroom:
Toilet out of order. Please use the floor below

In a Laundromat:
Automatic washing machines: Please remove all your clothes when the light goes out

In a London department store:
Bargain basement upstairs

In an office:
Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken.

In a London Office:
After tea break, Staff should empty the teapot and stand upside down on the draining board

Outside a second-hand shop:
We exchange anything — Bicycles, washing machines, etc. Why not bring in your wife and get a wonderful bargain?

Notice in a Health Food Shop window:
Closed due to illness

Spotted in a safari park:
Elephants, please stay in your car
Seen during a conference:
For anyone who has children and doesn’t know it, there is a daycare on the first floor

Notice on the fence along a farmer’s field
The farmer allows walkers to cross for free, but the bull charges.

Message on a leaflet:
If you cannot read, this leaflet will tell you how to get lesions.

On a repair shop door:
We can repair anything. Please knock hard on the door — the bell doesn’t work.

The Washington Post had an unfortunate headline yesterday, about Gov. Hogan (Maryland), a hefty man, considering the 2020 elections. Unfortunately, the headline writer put it:

Hogan Weighs 2020
