Recap of 2015


2015 was another interesting year for me as an author, and as the host of a writer’s blog.

As an author, I didn’t have a new book released. But the contract ended for my mystery novel, Love, Lies and Murder with Wings ePress, and I didn’t renew it. Now I’m working on rewriting it. I hope to have the new version released sometime in January, 2016.

I was on two author panels at the Love Is Murder Writers Conference in February, where my latest mystery, Once Upon a Crime was nominated for the Lovey Award for best romantic suspense novel. Unfortunately, it didn’t win.

I’m sad to announce that after this year, all future Love Is Murder conferences have been cancelled. It was fun. I met a lot, and befriended some, of the great mystery authors who have attended the conferences over the years. It had a great run while it lasted. It will be missed.

As a blogger, I introduced many new and talented writers, and welcomed back some old friends. I’ve read and reviewed many of the novels that were featured.

I’d like to give all my guest authors a heartfelt thank you for being on my blog. As a bonus, I’m going to “tweet” each of your blog posts every day until the end of the year.

Here is a list of the awesome authors, and their wonderful novels, who appeared in 2015:

Sharon Love Cook – A Deadly Christmas Carol
