Crime Writers from India and Pakistan

As Eastern Hemisphere editor of Noir Nation: International Journal of Crime Fiction (http://noirnation.com/) I am struggling to connect with the many crime writers I know there are in Pakistan and India.  I am still looking for stories for Noir Nation issue 2 (the deadline is December 22) and have a lot of ground to cover to include as many countries as possible.  The few crime writers I am aware of in these two countries have much to offer and something…See More

Profile Information

Hometown:
NYC
About Me:
Noir Nation aims to create a journal of crime fiction supported by an interactive community-building Web site. The Web site will also feature short original works of film noir.

The magazine will be professionally edited and designed so that readers can engage immediately with the writing and art and the ideas they convey rather than having to overcome natty typos and badly formatted paragraphs that slow the velocity of their enjoyment.

Why crime noir? There is currently no periodic publication on an international scale satisfying readers' hunger for works of well-wrought literary fiction that explore the dark side of human experience, and that does so while pursuing its own aesthetic ends, rather than the legitimate but sometimes competing interests of the marketing departments of commercial publishing houses.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Publisher, Editor, Organization

Update on the banned Google Ad

Noir Nation has won a victory over the Google algorithm. A human AdWords specialist at Google determined that we were not in violation. No reason was given, yet it seems that our initial suspicion was correct: the SYSTEM determined we were in violation of Google policy. Google has reinstated our account, but we missed a couple peak weeks of advertising and possibly sales due to the "mistake".

 

In The Castle, Franz Kafka wrote about the faceless system.  You don't get much more…

Authoritarian Google Algorithm

Anyone had this rather kafkaesque experience with Google's authoritarian algorithms? We had a Google ad, then took it down to update it, then got a reply that contained this: 



"It has come to our attention that your Google AdWords account does not comply with our Terms of Service and Advertising Policies. As a result, your account and any related accounts have been suspended, and your ads will no longer run on Google.Please be aware that you are prohibited from possessing or…

Hi Alan

Apologies for the late response; I've been flat out marketing 'White Gold' lately.

 

I'd be delighted to help spread the word - I'll put a mention on my blog with a link to your page.

Noir Nation, thank you for inviting me, I'm not sure what I can offer, but I do have a lot of words and okay other words.   Augie

Sorry fr the late reply, I would be happy to contribute. Been out of the loop due to moving house and lack of online access. What happens next?

Thanks for the add. I love the concept of Noir Nation and pump my fist that a periodical must be created.
At 10:37am on August 24, 2011, Augie said…

Thanks for inviting me, but I'm not to sure if I have much to offer. I do write thrillers, but not with all the gory details, well at least not yet, contemplating, I did work for a Criminal Attorney as well as The Bellevue Police Department...maybe that's a pull.

Thanks again for opening my eyes. Augie
