Crystal balls or no balls at all…The future of publishing.

The London Book Fair is one of the most highly anticipated events in the calendar year for publishers, authors and anyone connected with language and the ability to write captivating prose. As the event draws near the industry faces many new challenges, one thing that can be certain is that the Internet and digital technology is going to claim a bigger share of our thoughts and occupation. Sales of cut-price fiction in supermarkets, Amazon’s dominance of the book selling world on the net,… Continue

Murder in your backyard


Is the 'Online now' box killing Crimespace?

I hit Crimespace and see a lot of the time that I am the only soul here. Gets pretty lonely sometimes, so I just move on.

Hate to say it but is that online now box killing this site.

The clock is ticking...


the body of a man is washed up in the river; Turtle Island, Missouri is awoken

from being a peaceful haven and thrust into the attention of the national

media. The case is solved rather all too conveniently and F.B.I agent Georgina

O’Neil is left with severe doubts - have they caught the right man? A feeling that is justified after case

Crimespace...it's a crime not to

Crimespace is the find of the year for me so far. I have tried many of the social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin, and even Bebo, but have failed to target an audience of readers and writers of crime fiction as succinctly as Crimespace. For an author or reader of crime fiction its like finding this huge wealth of talent collected with a singular interest. As a relatively new…

I avoid MySpace and FaceBook because I try to keep the scammers at bay.I just finished TEASER, a new novel about child porn on the Net. The author has been a journalist for 20 years, and TEASER rings true--scary stuff. Having taught high school English for several years back in the Dark Ages, I remember how teens were always searching for acceptance (still are)--sometimes in all the wrong places. Kids are still too trusting, and parents nowdays are frazzled with worry about keeping their homes and jobs.

Regarding MySpace and FaceBook, they were originally started for children and students. I don't think either are an appropriate venue for adult males. The television programme To Catch a Predator uses them to troll for sexual deviants.

Hola Daniel -- just coming on to say hello and hope all is going well with you and Tutrle Island. Seems Islands are all the rage right now, what with Dennis Lehane's new title. Am thinking of doing an Island titlle myself and why not? I have the perfect one in mind.
Any rate, jus dropped by to say howdy do.

Ciao Darren--have fun editing your new novel. It's the phase of the writing process I enjoy the most. Alas I am still bogged down filling a blank monitor screen. May your editing be inspired. Ciao camilla

Hi Darren
I keep seeing your face everywhere, so you must be a good "friend." I agree, CrimeSpace is much more useful than other networking sites.

Hi Darren-about not finding anyone on CrimeSpace when you log in. I get bogged down with trying to finish my novel, cook,shop for food, do the laundry, answer e-mails etc etc. Who's got the time to chat? I wish I did. Be and write well, Ciao Camilla
