Crimespace is the find of the year for me so far. I have tried many of the social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin, and even Bebo, but have failed to target an audience of readers and writers of crime fiction as succinctly as Crimespace. For an author or reader of crime fiction its like finding this huge wealth of talent collected with a singular interest. As a relatively new author the site is invaluable as it offers the chance to talk to readers and confirm or have blown out of the water whether you (as a writer) are on the right track. It is a great site also to talk to peers...chew the fat. Just by being on line here at Crimespace for the past few days for instance I have learned that my website www.darrenlaws.co.uk does not work on everyone's browser as it needs ActiveX installed and people are unwilling to do that for various reasons. So I will have to think about a redesign, in the meantime I am pointing the curious toward www.cnpublishing.co.uk where they can read the first chapter of both of my novels, Tripping, and my new crime thriller, Turtle Island. Thank you Crimespace and thank you all of you lovely people who have been so kind to leave comments.
