News and Notes:
Congratulations, Cozy CRIT-ters! This meeting was the 1-year anniversary of our first critique meeting (the first Wednesday of the month). It’s been a fantastic year of critiques, reads, and friendships.
Karen W. sent the first book in her new cozy mystery series, TEA IS FOR TROUBLE, to the editor.
Rose C. sent the first book in the Bizzy Devlin Mystery series, BURIED IN THE SAND, to the editor. (Pen Name: TJ Costello)
Sherry C. is in the query trenches with her cozy mystery TIME’S UP FOR FATHER TIME. She received a request for a Full Manuscript, which has since ended with a kind “…step aside to make room for another agent….” (Pen Name: Abigail Leigh Reed)
Author readings are scheduled at the Saturday meetings.
Official Saturday topic discussions have been put on hold until we can meet again in person, but that doesn’t prohibit the spur-of-the-moment discussions.
