Writers and Drinks

I love these free coasters found amid the many handouts at this year’s Bouchercon. They’re another great dual purpose promotional item—and collectable too! Kudos to Elly Griffiths, Jonathan Moore, and the folks behind the Occupied Earth anthology for their creativity.

Elly’s website was easy to find, but as of this writing there seems to be no mention of The Zig Zag Girl there. It took several additional searches to verify I was in the right place. And with a name like “Jonathan Moore” do you think there could be coders, directors, or actors with matching monikers?)
