We had a marvelous meeting last month with our author Landis Wade. Our next author will be with us in January. Watch for more information about that meeting. Meanwhile, I want to announce our contest for August, September, October, and November. We have had contests for the best first sentence of a cozy mystery and using the first sentence, the best first paragraph. We are now going to build on that and look for the best first chapter of a cozy mystery using the paragraph as your lead into your chapter. The contest entry form will be on the website www.acozydeath.com next week. Since a first chapter is a serious undertaking, the contest entry will be due November 1, 2022. If you’d like to get going with your writing, the first paragraph is the following (our thanks to Rosemarie for her winning entry!).
On another note, please fix your calendars for December. Our meeting will be on the third Sunday of the month instead of the 4th Sunday. This year the 4th Sunday is Christmas. The calendars list the books for each month and can be found on our Calendars page.
If you haven’t joined us at a meeting, please do. We have a fun time.
