So glad you stopped by. Along with all of the ordinary-crazy stuff happening in my life–kids, homework, carpool, deadlines–I have some very exciting things going on. First, in case you haven’t heard, the second novel in my Cumberland Creek Mystery Series, SCRAPPED, has just been published by Kensington Publishing. The book focuses on your favorite characters from the first book. Annie, Vera, Paige, Sheila, and DeeAnn are still managing to get together weekly to scrapbook. Beatrice’s life takes a surprising twist. And a new scrapper comes to town. More about her later. But the Cumberland Creek Croppers welcome her to their circle. I wish I had the time get together with my friends more often—don’t we all? But one thing we do have is the internet and social media, which makes it a little easier for like-minded people to gather. We now have online communities. I just launched a little newsletter that I hope will be just like a virtual scrapbooking crop—where we share recipes, tips on scrapping and journaling. As a subscriber, you’ll get some other treats, like some of the chapters that were cut from the book. Grin. Along the way, I hope that you will drop me a line. I’d love to get to know you better, whether you are into scrapbooking or not. In the mean time, please sign up for my newsletter, Paper. Story. Recipe. here.

In the mean time here’s what some generous folks are saying about the Agatha-award nominated Scrapbook of Secrets:
“Mollie Bryan’s charming debut is a scrapbook of zany small town life with characters you’ll want to visit again and again in each new novel.” —Emilie Richards, SUNSET BRIDGE, 2011; MINISTRY IS MURDER SERIES, SHENANDOAH ALBUM SERIES; HAPPINESS KEY SERIES.
“Imagine the housewives of Wisteria Lane sipping tea, scrapbooking, and solving murders, and you have this gem of a debut by Mollie Cox Bryan.”— Lois Winston, ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY GLUE GUN.
“… Mollie Cox Bryan’s look at small town life is both sweet and spicy. A fun and charming debut.” —Meredith Cole, POSED FOR MURDER and DEAD IN THE WATER.
“An old fashioned mystery with some very modern twists. The intriguing characters, eerie happenings, and scrapbook of secrets kept me guessing ’til the end. It’s both warm and chilling, soothing and sinister. I can’t wait for the next installment!” –Clare O’Donohue, SOMEDAY QUILTS MYSTERY SERIES.
