It seems to me that there are precious few groups or communities for folks that write true crime. I am constantly looking for a group but everything seems geared toward thriller, mystery or fiction crime writers. Any info?
I don't know if this well help, but Laura James has a fantastic True Crime Blog site. http://laurajames.typepad.com/clews/ I find the stories and reviews fascinating. I would check into that if I were you.
Hope that helps.
Maybe there really isn't anything out there for True Crime writers, and it's time to start a group with that as its focus. That's how I ended up running Backspace - basically, my partner and I just created the kind of writers discussion forum we were looking for ourselves.
If you do, the ning software is really versatile and easy to use - I set up a private group for the ITW Debut authors using ning in just a few hours. Good luck!
