He wants to help you learn to feel.
He wants to watch you die.
Let the game begin...

Review: Stalk Me by Richard Parker

That evening began much like any other.  Luc and Beth Jordan on holiday, not only recuperating from an attack on Beth by a mugger, but taking a break from the stresses of purchasing their new home.  They were on their way to have dinner at a favorite restaurant, Beth at the wheel, and Luc…

Why Jack?

Wandering through the true crime section of the library today, I noticed an entire section devoted to Jack the Ripper.  While I have seen that before in stores and libraries, the one in our local branch seems to be quite excessively large, considering that as far as I know, he has never been positively identified.

 

I have to wonder why the fascination.  I also have to admit that I have read quite a number of books about those particular murders and have seen quite a number of…

DON'T JUST HAVE YOUR CHARACTER COMMIT A MURDER. HAVE HIM COMMIT A MURDER. WHAT? (FROM THE FORUM)

At I.J.'s suggestion, I am placing the blog in its entirety here.  Thanks, I.J.

 

Are there different 'categories' of murder?  You bet there are.  Let's broaden our killing horizons.

 

When you write crime fiction and your plot includes a murder, what kind of murder do you use in your story?  Now, I’m not referring to how your character gets bumped off (i.e., shot, stabbed, etc.).  I’m talking about the various ’categories’, if you will, of murder  Let me…

Hello Joyce, and happy new year wishes to you.

Sorry I haven't been around much for a while but  I've been very ill the last few months, and I'm not getting much better at present. (Now on morphine)


Please can I ask you  if you'd mind voting for me in the annual Preditors & Editors Readers Polls?  Requiem for the Ripper has been nominated as Best Thriller Novel and Glastonbury as Best Mystery Novel.

To vote just go to the links below, tick the box next to the title and then go down and click on VOTE. You will receive an almost instant email with a confirming link to click on to verify your vote and once that's done, your vote is registered. It's really simple and I would appreciate any support I can get in this annual poll. If you could put the word round I'd be most grateful.

Here are the direct links to the voting pages for both books.

For Glastonbury, (Mystery)

 And for Requiem for the Ripper (Thriller)

Hi Joyce,

What lovely things you say about me. I'm blushing. I really appreciate the value you place on my work, and I'm so pleased that I've succeeded in turning fiction into fact, so to speak. I do try hard to 'suck the reader in' to the story and you appear to intimate that I've succeeded for which I'm very grateful. I hope you enjoy 'Legacy' and don't worry,t he third part of the trilogy will take a while to write so you've plenty of time to read this one.

Best regards

BRian

Hi Joyce,

Thanks for the blog comment. I shall of course give away no secrets as to my insight into Jack's world and his mind, but let's just say that so any people have said I belong in the 19th century that perhaps there's a clue in there somewhere...haha

I do hope you get the opportunity to read 'Legacy of the Ripper' one day soon, and of course, there will be the third and final part of the trilogy, which is already on my 'drawing board' so to speak. Jack just has to 'flesh it out' so to speak....oh sorry, did I say Jack? I meant me of course....

Very best regards

Brian
