  • OMG I'm Writing a Cozy by Kathryn Flatt 11/5/2013 8:00:45 AM
    Well, not really. Added another scene to "Mongan Manor" which reveals some of the relationship issues among the extended family who owns it and dropping some important clues, too. While writing it, however, it struck me how much of the cozy mystery f... more

  • Lo and Behold by Kathryn Flatt 11/4/2013 7:38:38 AM
    I do believe I have a cover for "Where Power Lies" and the blurb is now in pretty good shape too. A couple of ideas/thoughts/inspirations led to the cover design process, and I thought I'd map that process out. I started with the blurb. Firs... more

  • Still Two Worlds at Once by Kathryn Flatt 11/1/2013 6:44:22 AM
    I did some more work on "Mongan Manor" this morning, tweaking a few things in earlier pages and double-checking details. I was pleased to note that some early clues are suitably ambiguous yet fair. I then got past the hump to move forward. Four more ... more

    Query for submission of "Where Power Lies" came back positive, so the manuscript is on its way to the selection committee! I spent some time fiddling around with the cover art (not so good) and with the blurb. I think the blurb I've got truly represe... more
