Hi, Alan

I haven't been here for a long time. But If you could tell me when the next reading will be, I will spread to my friends who write crime stories.

Best regards,

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.

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.

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

Thanks Alan. Just checked out your website and promo video. Very nice. Particularly like the classic Femme Fatale imagery. I'll spread the word.

Alan, I am so so sorry about the houses!  How devastating.

Hi, Alan.  Thrilled and awed that you've put Noir Nation together so seamlessly, although I'm sure from reading your CS comments that there's been many intervening obstacles.  I'll be your first fan because I respect your personal interaction, the way you've included each of us here on CS in a very personal--and personable and professional--manner. I can't wait for Issue 1.   


Goin' to your site now, since I hear it's up and running.

Hello Alan,

Thanks for letting me know about this. Can you send me some guidelines for submission? I may have some suitable stories, and will spread the word round the writers' groups I am in.

Hi Alan,


I'll be happy to put the word out about your zine. I do have a fair few crime shorts, but nearly all of them have been previously published in magazines, anthologies etc. I've assembled a few into a collection entitled 'Psychopaths Ltd: and Other Stories'. For the moment, you can read it for free at Smashwords:

Take a look. If you're interested in using any of the stories, let me know.

Thanks, Alan, for the invitation. I'm currently working on a Leon Cazador story which might just be noir enough... Best of luck with #1.

Thanks for getting in contact with me. Much appreciated.

I had a little bit of a look at some of your material on the web (you don't have a website yet, yea?). I am definitely interested in maybe contributing a piece, especially given that you pay. It's not necessary to get paid but it's nice to get some compensation for ones effort.

In fact, I'm working on something now that may be up your alley, featuring a character called Max Quinlan, a Vietnamese Australian ex-cop who now makes a living finding missing people. I actually wrote an as yet unpublished novel with Quinlan set in Cambodia. Anyway there's a few details about all this on my site, if you have not seen it yet.

Do you have a word length that you are after in terms of stories or any other information you can send me?

Also happy to spread the word about your venture in Australia, it sounds great.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Alan,

thank you for getting in touch. As it happens  I do have a few short stories How short is short ? Would 10,000 words do ?

Hi Alan

Thanks for the message. Here at Electric Breeze we create audiobooks and Podcasts etc for publishers and authors who want to self publish utilising our audiobook packages....So as we are not a publisher we are sadly not in the position to offer any stories. However, should you or any authors here at Crimespace require audio versions of your stories at any time please feel free to contact us. We also publish a series of podcasts called 'Bookplugs' where we offer authors the opportunity to have a chapter of their work recorded and read by experienced audiobook narrators. Each podcast consists of around 5 extracts per month. Our first chapter has been doing well with downloads in the UK, Ireland, US, France, Thailand and even China to name a few. More details can be found here:

From there you can also access the first chapter with RSS via iTunes.

We are actively seeking to promote new writers and keep our costs as low as possible to accomodate and attract new writers who seek promotion via the 'Bookplugs' podcast series. Each extract costs seventy pounds sterling and will remain online and accessible for an unlimited period (a great advantage over addition to any weekly/monthly publication).

Podcasts that we produce are not just limited to our own. We also provide facilities to record and produce podcast series for third parties and organisations and can assist with setting up and streaming. This includes release via iTunes and other podcast aggregators.

Hope your next edition of Noir Nation does well.

Best wishes
