Agatha and Edgar Winners 2014 announced

There were not enough submissions for the blog carnival this month, and mostly from one blogger.  Let's dig deep for next month's blog carnival please.  It is hard to create community on this vast web, but blog carnivals are one way we can support each other.  Join me and submit your mystery/suspense/crime fiction book reviews and author interviews anytime (click here).

If your blog reviews mystery/suspense/thrillers (even occasionally) then I would like to feature those reviews.  I send the newsletter out once a month announcing the deadline for submitting to this blog carnival.  Multiple entries from a blog are welcome.
