Weekend Update and News from Malice Domestic

Many of us are in Bethesda, Maryland this weekend for the Malice Domestic conference, a mystery conference that celebrates the cozy mystery. We hope to provide updates and photos of your favorite writers. In the meantime, here’s the blog line-up for this coming week:

Monday, Brenda Buchanan, Tuesday, John Clark, Wednesday, Gerry Boyle, Thursday, Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett, Friday, Vaughn Hardacker

And while poor Barbara Ross is laid up with a bad knee and unable to celebrate this week’s debut of Musseled Out with us here at the conference, Dorothy Cannell has been busy being made an honorary member of the Guppies (the sisters in crime on-line group of the great unpublished) and giving out the first annual Dorothy Cannell scholarship donated by her wonderful agent, Meg Ruley, to allow someone to attend this great fan conference for free. Photos below are Dorothy getting invested with her guppy feather boa (de rigueur for Guppies) and giving out the scholarship. And Brenda Buchanan at her first ever book signing:

  1. Sadly, no wins for our valiant MCWers, but we’re all having a very good time. Next year’s Malice guests of honor are Victoria Thompson, Katherine Hall Page (lifetime achievement) and Hank Phillippi Ryan, toastmaster.
