Not a lot of news this month — we’re all too busy working on our next manuscripts and wondering if the shrubs and roses survived the extreme freeze-thaw cycles of the past winter.
Our LESLIE BUDEWITZ, author of award-winning foodie mysteries, contributed to TWO new cookbooks. THE MYSTERY WRITERS OF AMERICA COOKBOOK, featuring recipes by 100 bestselling mystery writers, is a beautiful hardcover, published by Quirk Books (March 24, 2015) and available at all the usual sources.
And THE COZY COOKBOOK (Berkley Prime Crime, April 7, 2015) features excerpts and recipes from both Leslie’s series — the Food Lovers’ Village Mysteries and the Seattle Spice Shop Mysteries. Other contributors include some of the biggest names in cozy mystery, including Laura Childs, Cleo Coyle, Julie Hyzy, and Daryl Wood Gerber aka Avery Aames. Find it in all the usual places. And isn’t that cover cute?
Finally, Leslie’s latest mystery, ASSAULT AND PEPPER, first in the Seattle Spice Shop Mysteries, is officially a national bestseller!
