Malice Domestic is coming up this weekend in Bethesda, Maryland. We’re always thrilled to attend what we think of as our home conference but never more so than this year, with Design for Dying nominated for the Agatha Award for Best First Novel! We’re honored to be in the company of Marla Cooper (Terror in Taffeta), Alexia Gordon (Murder in G Major), Cynthia Kuhn (The Semester of Our Discontent), and Nadine Nettmann (Decanting a Murder). Here’s our Malice schedule so far—

Friday, April 28, 2:00—2:50 PM – Panel: New Kids on the Block

The Agatha Best First Novel nominees, moderated by Harriette Sackler

Saturday, April 29, 11:00 AM – Author Signing

We’ll be signing both Design for Dying and Dangerous to Know

Saturday, April 29, 7:00 PM – Agatha Awards Banquet

It’s going to be Movie Night at our table!

Easily one of the highpoints of being nominated for the Agatha was our blog tour, with all five authors nominated in the Best First Novel category hopping around the internet answering a different question at each stop. Our thanks to Ellen Byron and Art Taylor, nominees last year, for giving us inspiration and motivation; to everyone who hosted us; and to all the readers who played along. The last stop on the tour went live today, so here’s the full rundown of posts and questions answered.

Chicks on the Case – What’s the most interesting story you found while researching your book?

Wicked Cozy Authors – Who would play your main characters in a movie or TV show?
