Death at the Alma Mater is a featured book for January at the mystery book club at Barnes and Noble online.
Update January 4: I'm running a contest over there at B&N - my first. Please stop by for details on how to enter.
A nice review of Death of a Cozy Writer appears over at the Fred's Place blog (scroll down to the last review on the page):
Patricia Ruocco of the Lisle Library in Illinois has created a (wonderful) Death of a Cozy Writer page at Murder Among Friends - complete with maps, photos of bedsits and King's College Chapel, links to Agatha Christie's Greenway, etc. An illustrated Cozy Writer, in other words. Thank you, Patricia, and may you have a wonderful holiday!
Judging a Book
I'm blogging today over at the Midnight Ink blog on the subject of manuscript formatting (all the "rules" I didn't know I knew).
