I have written on here before about the next Frannie Shoemaker mystery, Grilling the Suspect. Well, I'm putting that aside for now. I need to do more research. This of course will be a trial, doing research at barbecue contests, but I am willing to face any sacrifice for my writing.
According to the Internet, which we know never lies, the dam at Beed's Lake is the most photographed dam in the Midwest. And it just happens that while Frannie and her friends are camping there, the Franklin County Fair is going on. So watch for local twists.
And the contest to submit camping hints and recipes is still going on; just click on the envelope icon at the top of the page and send me an email.
One last thing: I mentioned last week that Peete and Repeat had made the short list in the Chanticleer's Book Review CLUE Awards contest. Well, so did The Blue Coyote! In a bit of literary irony, author Dianne Harman had submitted two of her mysteries: Blue Coyote Motel and Coyote in Provence. In the original list, there was a typo: Blue Coyote by Dianne Harman. Turns out both my Blue Coyote and her Blue Coyote Motel were both supposed to be on the list. Kind of the Year of the Blue Coyote. Get your t-shirts now.
