The most important thing I want to tell you about this week is a new weekly feature on my blog called the Crime Fiction Alphabet Community Meme.
Each week you have to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week.
Your post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book's title, the first letter of an author's first name, or the first letter of the author's surname.
So you see you have lots of choice. You could write a review, or a bio of an author, so long as it fits the rules somehow.
On Monday 5th October we begin the letter A. It should be great fun. And some weeks will be challenging.
This week's posts:
- Review: GROTESQUE, Natsuo Kirino
- Review: A SMALL CASE FOR INSPECTOR GHOTE? H.R.F. Keating
