That's where I'll post info on new books and signings and such.

Until then, have a very happy new year and thank you again for being there for us.  Writing is a lonely business.  It helps to have you out there rooting for us!

Goodbye to Something Wicked

Happy new year! Is it too late to say that? I don't think so. We still have Christmas candy in the house and a bare tree in the living room. Why is it still there? Well, the candy is because the hubby bought waaaay too much (and I love him for it). The tree is still hanging around because we have a foot of snow on the ground here in St. Louis and the recycling company threw in the towel. They emailed to say we're on our own this week. So it's still kind of, sort of, still the holiday.

Anyhow, I want to thank everyone for being so supportive of us and the blog for the last five years. I've loved posting on Something Wicked and discussing and doing all the things we do. Still, as we start this new year, the gang and I have decided that Something Wicked has run it's course. It seems everyone is on Facebook and Twitter and on other social media. And that's great. We all evolve.

In fact, if you'd like to find me, check out:
Facebook
Twitter: AngieFoxauthor (because I'm clueless how to do the direct link for Twitter)

We'll still keep the archives open, and I may sneak back in to post for the subscribers, or see if anyone has left any chocolate behind. But otherwise, this is my last official Tuesday post.

Thanks again for hanging out with us over the years. It sure has been fun and I feel truly blessed for having been a part of Something Wicked!

Busy, Busy!

Too busy with Christmas (and the writing I'm supposed to be doing) to do much blogging, so popping in to reveal the cover for "Death by Devil's Breath," book #2 in my Chili Cook-Off series.  The book will be out in August and friends, that will be here before we all know it!

Button Woo-Woo

Buttons, voodoo and a handsome (and possibly dangerous) stranger.

It’s all part of what happens in “Buttoned Up,” book #4 in the Button Box mystery series I write as Kylie Logan.  The book hit store shelves yesterday.

Why voodoo?

It’s hard to say where that idea came from.  I do remember that it happened a little over a year ago when I was meeting with my brainstorming group.  It was the first time this particular group met.  Four different writers who write four very different things.  Naturally, we were all a little worried.  Would be get along?  Would our brains mesh and our ideas click?  Would we actually be able to help each other with our projects?

I was up first and so of course, felt the brunt of this trepidation.

It didn’t take long to find out I was worried about nothing.  The ideas flew!  A book about buttons?  How could we make it fun and different?

As always happens in these sorts of brainstorming situations, we started strong, hit plenty of dead ends, turned and went in different directions.  What we ended up with–buttons and voodoo–was so outlandish, I knew it was bound to be fun, and I was right.  Since I love antique and vintage buttons as well as history, I’ve enjoyed writing each book in this series, but “Buttoned Up” is special.  There’s a dash of adventure in it.  A hint of the unknown.  A dose of romance.

And of course, buttons and murder.

For this author, it’s the perfect storm of button fun!

In With the In Crowd

I have to admit, ever since I started writing traditional, cozy mysteries, I've felt a little out of place here on Wicked.

No ghosts, no demons, no other-wordly creatures . . . rather, the mysteries I write as Kylie Logan feature a ladies book discussion group (OK, so it's court ordered and I guess that's at least a little edgy), a traveling chili cook-off show, and a woman who runs a business that specializes in antique and vintage buttons.

Nothing too woo-woo going on there.

At least until now.

I'm happy to report that "Buttoned Up," the fourth book in my Button Box mystery series, will hit store shelves on December 3 and that the book has a paranormal thread running through it.

Finally, I'm back with the in crowd!

"Buttoned Up" finds Josie, my detective, heroine and button collector, involved in providing a button for an eccentric artist who's presenting an exhibit of button-covered objects sacred to vudon, the type of voodoo practiced on the Atlantic barrier islands.

Little does Josie know that taking one tiny button to an art gallery will result in her being embroiled in the artist's mysterious death...or in the ancient religion and the devious plans of a ruthless vudon practitioner.

I've seen one early review of "Buttoned Up," and that reviewer said it was so scary, I should write horror. Not sure about that, but I do know that it was fun to dip a toe back into the paranormal and walk a little on the woo-woo side again!

Happy, Happy!

Could let my favorite day of the year go by without wishing you all a very Happy Halloween!

To get you in the mood, here's a picture I took on a paranormal investigation in a cemetery a couple years ago.

My breath . . . or something else?  I'll let you decide!
