New Kelly Flynn Knitting Mystery out now!

Hey, hey, everyone! I'm really excited. Today is June 1st, and SKEIN OF THE CRIME, the eighth book in my New York Times and Barnes & Noble Bestselling mystery series will be available in bookstores and online. Kelly Flynn and all her friends are back for another adventure.

A heartfelt thanks to all of you who’ve made the Kelly Flynn mysteries national bestsellers from the very first release of KNIT ONE, KILL TWO in June 2005. Last year’s release, DROPPED DEAD STITCH was Barnes & Nobles’ #4 Bestselling Hardcover Mystery and stayed on their bestseller list FIVE months! Thank you, thank you, Readers---I am overwhelmed by your continued support. And, thank you for telling your friends about Kelly and the gang!

The publisher is sending me on Book Tour in June. I’ll start the month off signing in Colorado, then travel to the Midwest including Printers’ Row in Chicago, then back to Colorado for more signings. I’ll end the month in the Washington, DC, area and sign at the Penguin booth at the American Librarians Association for their convention in DC. I'll also be in the Minneapolis area (Roseville); Madison, WI; Wichita, KS, and Mission, KS. There will also be additional signings in the Chicago area and an all-day author event in Toulon, IL. Please check my website for full details on current signings and appearances. More are in the works. http://www.maggiesefton.com/. Who knows? I may be signing near you. If so, please drop by and say "hello." I love to meet readers!

As for what happens in SKEIN OF THE CRIME, well. . .there’s trouble in River City, folks. I won’t say more, so you can find out for yourselves. But, there’s plenty of mystery and murder to go around. Kelly even explores the world of illegally obtained legal drugs. Megan’s hunt for the perfect wedding dress continues, and Kelly learns to felt at Mimi’s workshop in the mountains. The recession has forced Steve to work two jobs in Denver so he can keep what’s left of his business afloat. Unfortunately, the stress is causing cracks in his relationship with Kelly. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile---Enjoy the Summer and Happy Reading to you all!
