Six years ago today a little cozy named Meow if its Murder debuted from Berkley Prime Crime, introducing ex-crime reporter turned sandwich shop owner Nora Charles to the world, along with her partner in solving crime, a tubby tuxedo cat named Nick.
As we all know Nick and Nora, along with many other wonderful cozy mysteries, was one of the casualties in the Great Cozy Massacre. The human, however, had their adventures planned through Book 7, with outlines up to Book 12, and was not about to give up on what remains to this day her favorite characters.
Finally, after much blood, sweat and tears (and nagging to the human's agent) Nick and Nora found another home! HISS H FOR HOMICIDE, the fourth Nick and Nora mystery, will debut in February 2021 from Beyond the Page Publishing!!!!!!!!
To commemorate the sixth anniversary of the release of the book that started it all, the human will give away an autographed first edition copy to the first person to correctly answer the below questions. US ENTRIES ONLY, PLEASE. Put your answers in the comments section below along with your contact info (email address) and good luck!
What is the name of the newspaper Nora wrote for when she lived in Chicago, and what was the title of her column?
What is the name of the online magazine Nora writes for now, and what is her boss's name?
What is Nick Atkins' partners name, and what was Nick the cat's original name when he belonged to Nick Atkins?
Bonus question (doesn't count toward the prize, but I just want to see if you're paying attention)
What real life event is Meow if its Murder based on?
Good luck, people!!!!!!!
