My new cozy mystery Hazards in Hampshire: a British Book Tour Mystery has flown out to Coffeetown Press under my new name, Emma Dakin. They bought a three-book series and I am busy with all the promotional material that goes with producing a book. It's not due out for some time, but as most of you know, it takes a lot of prep work before the book is in your hands. In the meantime, I have been re-reading Clara Benson and Kerry Greenwood, enjoying their style and humour.

The audience was enthusiastic and, after the reading, asking interesting questions. The librarian had suggested, that since Hazards in Hampshire is set in England, we should have Afternoon Tea. That seemed brilliant until I had to spend four evenings polishin...
