Win a book contract. Get a free book. And one other thing.

Prepare for Random, folks.

1. If you are a mystery or suspense writer who is trying to get published, please don't miss an amazing opportunity offered by Poisoned Pen Press. The Discover Mystery Contest is open through April 30th and the publisher is looking for new blood!

2. In my last post I mentioned that I received two courtesy copies of Now Write! Mysteries: Suspense, Crime, Thriller, and Other Mystery Fiction Exercises from Today's Best Writers and Teachers from its publisher because I was one of the contributors to the book. Yay! But the deal is, I'm an OCD clutter-phobe, minimalist sort and the second copy is creating issues. It needs a new home. If you will feed it and walk it, it's yours. Just leave a comment below to let me know. If more than one of you are interested I'll figure something out. Just check back here in the comments. We may have a drawing on our hands.

3. Finally, I've just discovered Erica Spindler. Have you read her? I'm glad I'm finally aware of her wonderful books. Good stuff.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week and that your projects are behaving.


  1. Interested!
    Okay, I'm not writing a ton, but I'd love a copy. Once the whole MBA thing is done (Dec 2012!) I'm getting back to writing

    1. Good for you, Stacie! Just message me your address. :)

    2. Good for you, Stacie! Just message me your address. :)

    3. Good for you, Stacie! Just message me your address. :)

  2. Hi Rachel, do you think it would be helpful to someone writing in another genre? If you don't have another copy, is it available for kindle?


  3. Hi Nancy, I think most writing books are applicable cross-genre. I haven't checked for a Kindle edition, but a quick check at Amazon will answer that. I'd look now but I'm logged in from my phone!
