15 Tips for Writing Mysteries

Writers in the StormHi everyone! Today I’m over at the Writers in the Storm blog with tips for writing mysteries. If you’ve ever thought about writing one, or if you’re a mystery reader, I hope you’ll slide by.

Also, I want to thank Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi for featuring me as one of their Writing Heroes on The Bookshelf Muse blog. It’s a huge honor for me, since I really respect the resource they’ve established for writers there— fantastic writers’ thesauruses. Look in their sidebar to check out their thesaurus for character traits, emotions, settings, symbolism, weather, and more. They’ve opened up a giveaway for one of their wonderful critiques, which I’ll be passing along to a reader very soon.

I also wanted to thank Sharon Galligar Chance at Sharon’s Garden of Book Reviews for her kind review of Hickory Smoked Homicide.
