An Unplanned Malice Domestic Blog Hop?

The first three days of this week, I’ve found myself in four different places on the Internet—all related in one way or another with Malice Domestic. What a fun way to ease into one of my favorite weekends of the year!

Several months back, Ellen Byron asked me to contribute a guest post to Chicks on the Case, and she suggested I might write something about Dash—which I was glad to do, especially given his own burgeoning career as a writer! That post published Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday, CrimeReads hosted a roundtable discussion on the state of the traditional mystery—a chat featuring this year’s finalists for the Agatha Awards, and I’m glad to find myself among that number too.

Earlier in the week, our good friend Paula Benson welcomed the Agatha finalists for Best Short Story for a short interview at Writers Who Kill—a fun series of questions!—and then offered a quiz at The Stiletto Gang on this year’s finalists in both Best Short Story and Best First Novel. So much appreciate her hosting us in two places!

The excitement is building already—looking forward to seeing everyone in Bethesda beginning Thursday night!
