A new yahoo group for mystery writers

I'm so fed up with Amazon!  First they deny authors the use of Amazon links to promote our own books, then they say we can't do all sig lines for authors who are kind enough to review books. Kindle…Continue

I hate to admit it, but I didn't even realize this group existed. I'm a mystery writer. I write two series. They're light reading with a little humor. Hi everybody!

I tweeted, I hope it helps them out.

The group has been slow recently.  Maybe everyone has been busy?  I know I'm taking far longer than I thought in getting a satisfactory WIP 'wipped' into shape.  

Right now I'm on a break from it at the moment with NaNoWriMo and doing a book for my grandkids which started as a birthday present for the youngest one, and then grew.

Yes.  I am here waiting for signs of life.

I'm new here. Are there any active mystery writers in this group? I see it's been a while since anyone posted here!

Welcome, Lorraine! Is your novel set in France?

Comment by Lorraine Swoboda on March 18, 2013 at 7:59am

Hello everyone, from Brittany, France. I'm writing a novel that grew out of a flash fiction (200 word) story: people wanted to know what happened next, and I knew there was a good book to be written. so here I am, in first draft of third version...Love my main characters, and I know where the plot is going. In fact, I'm off to my Scrivener right now.

Bummer. Our house will be finished by then. I'm not sure I'll want to leave it, but my SIL will care for my MIL during that time. The kids are already mad that I'm leaving though!
