I hate plugging my own stuff.

Members of my local writers group saw this piece through several revisions making my effort better.

But DID respond when I asked under separate cover: "Are you still an active mystery magazine?" Answer: "We are still in…Continue

So, thanks to Molly Greene, author of the blog Molly Greene: Author and her post "101 Fabulous Blog…Continue
