I’ve been doing some blogging for a new mystery/crime novel site, The Criminal Element, and it’s finally launched this week!
My first post for the site is Crime’s Couples: Barbara Hambly’s Benjamin January and Rose Vitrac, from her series of historical mysteries set in 1830s New Orleans.
“Macmillan announces the launch of a new crime and mystery-focused community website with a focus on sharing and enriching the experience of crime story fandom…the site will highlight different areas of the genre, from noir to cozies and everything in between.
The site will feature pre-release excerpts, original short stories from various authors in the space, topical blog posts, and will eventually be offering downloads and podcasts.
Much like its successful sister sites, science fiction community Tor.com and romance community HeroesandHeartbreakers.com, CriminalElement.com is “publisher neutral,” meaning that it will include author participation from all publishers and other content creators, and is not exclusive to Macmillan authors.”
