Gwen Mayo and I had the pleasure of returning to Kentucky for the Kentucky Book Festival on November 6th. We saw family and friends, along with our comrades in writing from the Derby Rotten Scoundrels chapter of Sisters in Crime. You can see their account of the festival here.
The reception before the event was hosted by Campbellsville College and featured many of the leading lights in Kentucky literature.
The day of the festival, our corner of the room was very busy! Many fellow authors and bourbon fans stopped by to chat and pick up a copy of Mystery with a Splash of Bourbon, signed by the contributors in attendance.
By 3 PM, all the copies Joseph-Beth's provided us with had sold out, and authors were dipping into their personal stash so we could fill the need. The store has contacted the chapter about doing another signing before Christmas. Good news for them, and good news for MAHLLC!
Out June 22 - Preorder now
Mystery with a Splash of Bourbon from the Derby Rotten Scoundrels is an anthology that celebrates Kentucky's finest spirit: Bourbon. Ranging from historical adventure to gritty realism, the eighteen crime stories included in this anthology are all fermented in the history and culture of Kentucky bourbon, distilled through the imaginations of our authors. Interwoven with the stories are articles covering the history of bourbon, from Prohibition, moonshining, and medicinal alcohol, to profiles of distilleries and the booming Whiskey Row district in downtown Louisville.
Who Are the Derby Rotten Scoundrels?
The Scoundrels are an eclectic group of writers (and readers) who get together to share their writing. The group was formed in 1992, starting as primarily a reading club. Over time, they became more focused on writers, especially new writers, and how to help them hone their skills and get published. The founders of Mystery and Horror, LLC were among those writers.
Mystery and Horror, LLC, is an indie press interested in what the name suggests.
