Books, Books, and More Books

by Maggie Sefton

We novelists learn to juggle fairly quickly. We juggle our time, writing time, family time. And we juggle books. Most of us have more than one book we've written or are writing or plan to write. These past few weeks, like many of my fellow Chicks, I've been juggling the various books.

First, I'm still promoting the latest Kelly Flynn mystery in the Berkley Prime Crime Knitting Mystery series. UNRAVELED came out last June, and I'm leaving for a mystery conference in Sacramento, CA, next week. More, next time.

And I'm starting to promote this next Kelly Flynn mystery, #10, CAST ON, KILL OFF, which will be out this June 2012. Stay tuned and there'll be more information coming this late spring.

But right now, I'm in the midst of writing the Kelly Flynn mystery, #11, which is due to my editor in June but won't be published until next June 2013. See what I mean about juggling? The cover for that one won't be available until next year.



Meanwhile, I'm also thinking about promotion for DEADLY POLITICS, the 1st in my Washington, DC - based mystery series, which will be published by Midnight Ink and released this August 2006.

And, I'm also doing final editing on the 2nd in the Molly Malone suspense mysteries which won't be coming out until 2013. No cover ready for that one, yet.





On top of that---my Ebook release on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all other formats of my amateur sleuth mystery DYING TO SELL came out this last January. This was previously pubbed in hardcover & paperback by two publishers. See how easy it is to become confused?

And---in late April, I'll have another Ebook released---my historical romance set in 1871 Kansas. ABILENE GAMBLER is an old fashioned Western with villains to hiss and heroes to cheer. And, love scenes, too. :)


And---there's another exciting publication to brag about: our Cozy Chicks cookbook which was just released this week---The Cozy Chicks Kitchen. Also available on all formats.

Whew! And that's not even counting the books that are waiting in line to be allowed on the page. :)

Like I said----all of us are juggling like mad!
