Mystery News

Tim Maleeny has moved his Cape Weathers series from Midnight Ink to Poisoned Pen Press; this is MI's loss, I must say. Maleeny's new, much-anticipated title, Greasing the Pinata, comes out next month, and I've begged for an ARC so that I can get a sneak peek. :)

Maleeny's first mystery, Stealing the Dragon, was nominated for a Macavity Award and an IPPY Award, and his short story, "Till Death Do Us Part," won a Macavity in 2007.

Bob Morris has a new title called A Deadly Silver Sea. I hope to interview him soon and ask if the title (or the book) was influenced by John D. MacDonald.

I'm a fan of the Jess Lourey mysteries, and I know that she is working on a fifth in her Murder By Month series called September Mourn; August Moon is available now.

Thanks for not forgetting us, Julia!

Has Poisoned Pen changed their criteria? I thought they only wanted "new" authors.

How could one forget, Jess?

And I don't know about Poisoned Pen; I had not heard this before.
