AUTHOR LOIS WINSTON MIXES THINGS UP IN 2020 ON KILLER CRAFTS & CRAFTY KILLERS

Mixing It Up in 2020
By Lois Winston

It’s hard to believe that 2020 marks ten years for Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers. The blog started out as the “online version” of the women’s magazine where Anastasia Pollack, reluctant amateur sleuth of my eponymous Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mysteries, works as a crafts editor. 

Over the ensuing years, the blog has gone through several changes. I found early on that readers really enjoyed the Monday craft segments and the Tuesday recipes. In addition, Book Club Friday, where authors showcased their books, was extremely popular with our blog readers and so popular with my fellow authors that guest spots began creeping into other days of the week, taking over the days originally designated for the other “editors” of the “magazine”.

Now, after ten years, I’m once again mixing things up a bit. In 2020 new posts will appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays instead of Monday through Friday. This will allow for more exposure for each post. In addition, you may find crafts on days other than Mondays and recipes on days other than Tuesdays. 

I’ve already had quite a few authors, both reader favorites and ones new to Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers, ask for spots in the coming months. I hope all of you will enjoy the change.

Absolutely, Dru! Lois is already plotting how to get me in more trouble in 2020. The woman is relentless!
