#MyrtleMondays: The News Never Rests

It’s another busy week in the world of the Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries. On my end, I’ve been working on revisions for Book 4, In Myrtle Peril—but watching me revise does not make for particularly gripping viewing. However, I do have a couple fun things for you to check out this week!

This fabulous photograph (likely from a stereograph) recalls a fun new cast member making her debut this fall in Cold-Blooded Myrtle.

First up, I had the chance to chat with Kansas City’s NPR’s “Up to Date” last week about the Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries. It was a terrific interview–go have a listen!

Next up, Malice Domestic, home of the Agatha Awards, is coming up next month! More Than Malice, 2021’s virtual event, includes a panel with the nominees for Best Children’s/YA Mystery. We’re filming this week, and the panel airs this coming Sunday, July 4 at 3:00 eastern. If you are a member of Malice Domestic, this is your chance to get in your vote (coughPremeditated Myrtlecough)!

Watch the panel at 3:00 Eastern July 4! Click here.

Check out that incredible lineup! I can’t wait to hang out with my fellow nominees and chat about kids’ mysteries. No registration is necessary to watch.

Also this week, the Myrtle Hardcastle Detective Society has a super-top-secret meeting with Myrtle’s favorite independent booksellers, where we’ll be dissecting all things Cold-Blooded Myrtle, coming October 5. Stay tuned for highlights from our conversation.
