Special Announcement: Carnival Coming!



Introducting the Mystery and Crime Fiction Blog Carnival

I have taken a huge plunge here by deciding to run a Blog Carnival dedicated
to Mystery/Crime Fiction/Suspense books and the craft of writing them. 


 Do you review mystery, crime fiction, or suspense books?


Do you have author interviews that discuss writing mystery or crime fiction?


Do you blog on fiction writing advice?

Join us for this Carnival.


What is a blog carnival?  blog carnivals are where someone takes the time to find really good blog posts on a given topic, and then puts all those posts together in a blog post called a "carnival". 

This carnival takes your submissions and presents them in a monthly carnival.  Imagine one place to go each month for book reviews on Mystery, Crime Fiction and Suspense books as well as author interviews and writing tips and advice.

Blog carnivals are a great way for bloggers to recognize each other's efforts, organize blog posts around important topics - like the Mystery Genre, and improve the overall level of conversation in the blogosphere. The fact that carnivals are edited (and usually annotated) collections of links lets them serve as "magazines" within the blogosphere.
CONDITIONS:
1)  MUST BE A BLOG POST - NOT A WEBSITE
2)  MUST BE MYSTERY / CRIME FICTION OR WRITING RELATED

WARNING: IF IT DOESN'T MEET THE CONDITIONS I WON'T POST IT
Categories under this blog carnival include:

Police Procedural Book Review


Private Investigator Book Review


Amateur Sleuth Book Review


Cozy Mystery Book Review


Suspense Fiction Book Review


Author Interview


Writing tips and advice



This Carnival will take place the first Monday of each month. 

Submission deadline is the last Friday of each month.

Please submit links to recent articles (within the last 3 months) to keep the information fresh.
Also, your links should point to actual articles not archive lists, indexes or about pages.
Submit your blog entry here now

Spread the word far and wide!!!
Mystery lovers celebrate.

What a great idea. This should be a lot of fun, as well as a great resource for mystery readers and writers. Thanks for getting it started.

Thank you Maryann for stopping by. I hope that it will be a resource for the mystery community - that is my intention. Please help spread the word.

It was certainly interesting for me to read the post. Thanks for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. BTW, why don't you change design :).
