Most Popular Writing Links at Jungle Red Writers

LUCY BURDETTE: One of the disadvantages of writing a daily group blog like JUNGLE RED WRITERS is that perfectly good posts mostly disappear into the ether after the day (or week) they are posted. And last I checked, our blog had posted 2724 blogs on the site–kind of mind-boggling, right? So I thought you might enjoy a round-up of some of our most popular posts about writing—feel free to share! Remember that there is often some great info in the comments section, too.
The Agony of Writing by the Jungle Red Writers: The reds admit to their panic mid-book and offer tips about how to keep going.

Are You Branded? By Chris Tieri, who explains the importance of understanding your reading audience–and your books. And PS, Chris will be the Friday keynote speaker at the New England Crimebake this year.

Eight Rules for Finding Decent Food Almost Anywhere by Lucy Burdette

Trimmings is Launched!

This has been a whirlwind week–so exciting to celebrate the launch of a new book. #13 for me–but it never gets old! I thought you might enjoy this interview from Jungle Red Writers…
Today all the Reds are humming Christmas carols and wearing Santa hats to celebrate the launch of Lucy Burdette‘s fifth Key West food critic mystery, DEATH WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS. Lucy herself is simply floating so we thought of some questions to ask about the new book…although she did edit out some of our best suggestions like: What do you really think of skate? (Hallie) and Have you ever eaten cod cheek? (Hank)

REDS: Seriously, tell us what are the best–and hardest–things about writing a cozy mystery series?

LUCY: I’ll start with the hardest part: Suspension of disbelief. My readers must be persuaded to suspend disbelief in every way—characters, plot, setting, everything! For example, what business does a food critic have solving murders? Since Hayley Snow’s profession does not explain her involvement with criminal investigation, the sleuthing must evolve because of her relationships with other characters and because of her own personality and history. Challenging!

What I enjoy most is learning more about the characters with each book I write. Do you know that I had no idea Miss Gloria would become such an important character when I started out? A series is always full of surprises…and so is the Key West setting.

REDS: Speaking of relationships, this story has a lot to do with Hayley and her mother. What do you find most interesting about this duo?

LUCY: I love writing about the push and pull of the mother-daughter relationship over time. Hayley is “finding herself” as a true adult, and her mom is revealing herself as a regular person with flaws and fears, not just a mother. I lost my mother when in my early twenties so I think I get extra satisfaction imagining the transition of Hayley and Janet Snow’s relationship–how it changes and matures in ways that I didn’t have the chance to experience.

REDS: What’s so special about Key West during the Christmas season?

LUCY: So many things! It’s funny how just a string of white lights around the trunk of a palm tree looks festive. But Key West does a lot more than that. They hold a lighting decoration contest, a lighted boat parade, the hometown holiday parade..

And don’t let me forget to mention the Winter Wiener Wonderland which is a parade of costumed dachshunds. (I marched in that last year with John and Tonka—we all wore hot dog costumes.) It was so much fun to work all of those events into the book!

REDS: What was the best thing you ate while in training for this writing this book and the book launch?

LUCY:  Now you’re getting to the heart of the matter:). The recipes in the back of the book are mine, except, of course, for the Jungle Red cocktail, which is Susan’s brainchild. And I’m crazy for the Scarlet O’Hara raspberry cupcakes (which are also wonderful with mocha icing…)

Thank you readers for all your support! The new book can be found wherever books are sold, including independent bookstores, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

Burdette infuses the mystery with Key West spirit and holiday fun along with delicious food references and recipes. This strong series continues a unique blend of island mayhem and sparkling characters surrounding a layered mystery.  Booklist, December 1, 2014

Mystery Writers as Pack Animals

I am just back home from five days of traveling for the annual MWA Edgars week followed by a booksigning at Salt and Pepper Books in Occoquan, VA, and then the Malice Domestic convention in Bethesda. And the party continues without me today at the Mystery Lovers Bookshop in Oakmont, PA. These events are exhausting, but wonderful–such fun to meet with fans, spend time with author friends that I usually only ‘see’ online, and have face time with my editor and agent and lots of other publishing folks. I promised myself two things this year–I would get some work done on the road, and take more pictures. Zero for zero:(.

Anyway, the picture on top is me with fellow Jungle Red Writers bloggers Rosemary Harris and Hallie Ephron, who was a nominee for the Mary Higgins Clark award for NEVER TELL A LIE. The next photo is from the culinary mystery booksigning with Sheila Connolly, Avery Aames, and Krista Davis at Salt and Pepper Books in Occoquan, VA. If you are a cookbook and food writing nut, this adorable store is not to be missed!

My  story, The Itinerary, had been nominated for an Agatha award for best short story–here are the five nominees after our panel discussing the hows and whys of short mystery fiction. (Left to right, Krista Davis, Avery Aames, Barb Goffman, moderator Melodie Johnson Howe, Dana Cameron, and me.)

Dana was awarded the prized Agatha teapot on Saturday night–but believe me, it really was an honor to be nominated in the first place. And besides, how could I feel badly when my sweet friend Krista had already given me a miniature teapot, just in case, because we all deserved to be winners?

And that’s what I love about this business–the friends I’ve made, both readers and writers. It’s a marvelously generous and interesting community–hanging out with these people makes all that time at the computer feel like a breeze.

Well, not exactly, but close!
