    Honey, I’m Home

    Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

    Malice Domestic 2008 has officially come and gone, leaving in its wake some great memories.
    I flew into Reagan National on Thursday afternoon and—after making a pit stop at my hotel room—headed off to the zoo with Heather to see my first-ever real live panda bear. We conquered the subway system once again (though the automated […]

    How Do You Spell R-e-l-i-e-f?

    Monday, April 28th, 2008

    So…right about now Sara and I should be setting out for the wilds of Pittsburgh — wish us luck!
    Obviously I wrote this post ahead of time (in an attempt to distract myself from brooding over my soon-to-be-lost luggage). I have the world’s looniest writing schedule right now — I may have mentioned that last week […]

    She Staggers Back…….

    Friday, April 25th, 2008

    Soooooo……I’ve been gone a while. Something you, my dear friends, undoubtedly did not notice given the guest bloggers who’ve been holding down the fort. I love them for keeping you amused, of course, but love them even more for giving me a break. A break that allows me to return with that most wonderful of […]

    Malice Domestic Grant for Unpublished Writers

    Thursday, April 24th, 2008

    Today marks the opening of the Malice Domestic traditional mystery convention. It’s their 20th of these shindigs, held every year just outside Washington DC. A Malice veteran myself, I describe it as a great big family reunion. It’s a must for fans of the mystery in the vein of Agatha Christie - […]

    Cabot Cove, Glass Houses, and Stones

    Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

    It’s that time again, time to talk about Cabot Cove Syndrome. If you’re not familiar with the term, Cabot Cove Syndrome refers the abnormally high body count in Jessica Fletcher’s small Maine town. It’s a topic that comes up every so often in the mystery community.
    People often use the Cabot Cove phenomenon to […]

    I’m Leavin’ On a Jet Plane

    Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

    As you’re reading today’s blog, most of the Good Girls are rooting through their closets in search of professional wear for the annual Malice Domestic Conference in Washington D.C. And I, for one, am psyched!
    For those who might not know what Malice is, it’s essentially the place to be if you enjoy cozy mysteries. Each […]

    What Goes With Stranded?

    Monday, April 21st, 2008

    So in our last thrilling installment, Corpse Pose, the first book in my series from Berkley, had just come out — thankyouverymuch — and I was agonizing over the fourth book in the Poetic Death series. I have to say it was a little surreal revisiting those characters after a two year absence. In fact, […]

    April In Paris

    Friday, April 18th, 2008

    By Cara Black
    Bonjour All you good girls who kill for money! Tasha, my watching the Academy Awards buddy, asked me to wax poetic about springtime in Paris. But zut alors! according to my Parisian friend’s email this morning, there’s a cold, grey mist winding in the cobbled streets and the sun’s hiding behind a gun […]

    PBS and Mystery!

    Thursday, April 17th, 2008

    PBS’s series, Mystery! began airing in 1980 after the public stations’ Masterpiece Theatre sponsor, Mobil, suggested a series of British mysteries, tacking on to the success of Masterpiece versions of Dorothy L. Sayers’ Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries.
    My favorite part about the series has to be the animated opening and closing, featuring Edward Gorey cartoons. […]

    The “X” Factor

    Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

    I had my first airport book signing last week, which may not sound very exciting to you but, to me, it was one of the events I was really looking forward to this spring.
    I once heard someone say that they thought when they’d achieved a certain thing, let’s just call it “X,” […]
