I like to share comments I receive about my work. To day I want to introduce Omar Adam. He wrote to me to say how much he enjoyed my novel, Blood and Bone, and unlike many readers, he was able to tell me exactly why. For that valuable feedback, I've made Omar's comment my featured review this week on my web site. –…Continue

Good day everyone! I'm finally starting to use Crimespace as it is intended- by contributing a blog and participating. I can use the excuse that I've been very busy lately (it's true!) though that really isn't an excuse. I hope to be more active here in the future!

If used in a novel or short story these fillers will only serve to slow the flow and frustrate the reader. Likewise in reality we eat, watch television, cook meals, bathe, spend and waste time on the Internet, visit family, friends and sick relatives, shop and clean. But if included…Continue
