Is crime fiction set for a rise in sales? Publishers think so, crime authors hope so!

I read an article at the weekend that said "Crime often spikes when the economy splutters, but does demand for crime fiction surge as well? Publishers hope so."  So do crime authors.

The elusive, graceful future of journalism: Nina Burleigh's Writing Life

A NPR foreign correspondent chum used to recount a list of seven ways for journalists to grow old with grace.

Curl up with a Marine Mystery this Christmas

What's good enough for Dan Brown and Random House is good enough for me.

So, in my own little way I thought I'd beat the drum for the UK.
