Editor, Mme Lynne Murphy, is on holiday from August 3 to 17th. She will be back with more news after Aug 18th.
On August 17th, 6:30 to 8 pm, the Mesdames of Mayhem are guests at Authors Night at Albert Campbell Branch, TPL, 496 Birchmount Road, Scarborough. The event brings together local authors and readers to mingle, exchange ideas and to learn about new books from established authors.
Seven Mesdames will be reading: Mmes Rosemary Aubert, M. H. Callway, Lisa DeNikolits, Cathy Dunphy, Rosemary McCracken, Jane Petersen Burfield and Sylvia Warsh. (Hence our group photo!)
This is Mme Rosemary McCracken’s summer! She was interviewed on Canoe 100.9 FM, the radio station in Raven Lake cottage country. Her interview airs on Wed Aug 17th at 6 pm and again on Friday, Aug 19th at 11 am. If you miss these times, you can also listen to her full interview on the internet via this link.
Rosemary’s latest book, Raven Lake, also received a great review from Jack Batten of the Toronto Star. Read Jack’s full review here.
And she was interviewed by the Minden Times, a Haliburton newspaper. Local readers may recognize some of the landmarks in Raven Lake though they don’t quite match up, having been transformed to serve the latest Pat Tierney mystery. Read Rosemary’s interview here.
More good news on the book front! New books by several Mesdames are launching this fall. Mme Rosemary Aubert is releasing a collection of her short crime fiction under the title, The Midnight Boat to Palermo. Mme M. H. Callway’s book, Glow Grass, brings together her published short fiction, including two novellas. Both books are published by Carrick Publishing.
And our amazingly productive Mme Lisa DeNikolits launches her sixth novel, The Nearly Girl. (Inanna Publications)
Full details of all our launches and upcoming fall appearances will be in our September and October Mesdames on the Move newsletters.
And looking far ahead: Mme Melodie Campbell’s latest book in her hilarious Goddaughter series, The Bootlegger’s Goddaughter, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. It launches in February, 2017.
