Dangerous Plant Alert

Be cautious of giant hogweed friends.

New Hampshire Garden Solutions

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has put this plant near the top of its Federal Noxious Weed list. Officials in Washington are asking residents to be on the lookout for it so they can eradicate it. In New York a hotline has been set up so residents can easily report sightings, and crews in several states are seeking it out and destroying it. To date it has been reported in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington and Vermont.

The plant is the giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum), originally from central Asia. Since its discovery it has spread all over the world, because as a specimen plant it is a knockout.  White flowers nearly 3 feet in diameter bloom on top of stalks that can reach 15 feet tall. The tropical looking compound leaves grow 3-5 feet across and up to 9 feet…

The Blank Page

Wicked Cozy Authors

News Flash: Barbara Kay and Cynthia Balevre are the winners from yesterday’s post! Check your inboxes, ladies, and congratulations.

Liz Mugavero: Every time I finish a book, especially after a particularly harrowing deadline crunch, I feel like I want to crawl into a hole. A hole with no computer, more specifically. I feel like every piece of my creativity is completely wrung out, like I’ll never be able to turn out another word.

But I also have an immense sense of freedom, of being able to join the living again, to answer the 10,000 emails that have piled up, to actually leave the house.

The last thing I want to do is write. I say it will be at least two weeks, maybe a month, before I can even think about a new story or my Blankcharacters or a good opening scene. I happily push it all out of…

Happy Blogiversary to Us!!

Happy Blogiversary to the Wickeds! I love these ladies and their books.

Wicked Cozy Authors

3rd Blogiversary! (1)Once upon a time, a little over three years ago, dreams were coming true. Contracts were being signed, books were being written, and publication dates were being set. Sherry Harris started the ball rolling by sending out a “does anyone want to do a blog with me” email, but all six of us had a lot to do with the shaping of this blog, and the Wicked Cozy Authors were born.

This week, we celebrate three years of blogging. We’ve added three accomplices who join us once a month, and we’re delighted to include guests. We’ve also added names on the masthead, since a few of us are writing more than one series. But the best thing about this blog: our readers. Dear readers, you will never know how much your comments, reviews, likes, and retweets mean to us.

So, dear Wickeds, thinking back upon these three years, let us…

Guest: Marian Stanley

Marian Stanley is a fabulous writer and a lovely woman. I had the pleasure of working with her as a consultant for her social media platforms. I am excited to read her book The Immaculate. And most importantly her dog Archie is adorable. Be sure to check her out #fearLESS friends!

Wicked Cozy Authors

Edith here, freshly back from Malice! I’m delighted to interview Marian Stanley on the Immaculate. meblog today. She’s a fellow New Englander and her brand-new debut mystery is out from Barking Rain Press. TheImmaculate is a mystery about the murder of Sister Mary Aurelius, an elderly Boston nun so tough that she was secretly nicknamed Spike by her students, and the determined search for answers by a former student whom the nun had mentored throughout her life.

I read the book and happily endorsed it: “You’ll be a faithful fan of Stanley’s work when you finish this tale of ambitions and betrayals, powerful figures with something to hide, and enduring childhood friendships – a story which grows more compelling page by page.” Marian is giving away a copy of the book to one commenter here today!

Immaculate bookmarksE: Marian, The Immaculate is your first mystery to be published and it’s a stunner…

Dangerously Delightful~ Malice Domestic 28

Brand Fearless created this trailer for author Liz Mugavero and theWicked Cozy Authors as they attend Malice Domestic 28. Show them some love fearLESS friends!

“Established in 1989, Malice Domestic® is an annual “fun fan” convention in metropolitan Washington, D.C.,saluting the traditional mystery—books best typified by the works of Agatha Christie.”

Readers if you’ve never attended it is a must. I went in 2013 when Liz was nominated for an Agatha for Best First Novel ~ Kneading To Die. Wonderful event, awesome readers and amazing authors! I hope to be able to attend next year for sure.
