Here's a press release I recently published about the conviction of police officer Jason Van Dyke for killing a black suspect and his sentence of nearly 7 years.

Picture
In my opinion, finding a new author is kind of like going on a blind date.

You're there, you like what you see but you don't know if you really want to stick around for the main course.

Maybe you want to get to know the author a little before ordering anything and committing?

Happy New Year everyone. I may be late to this party, but I have an excuse. As some of you may know, despite the robust health of my adorable muses, I haven't been writing a whole lot.

Esosa Kolawole Esosa Kolawole's blog:
There are writers who want to write a story with a blend of humour and sorrow. And that's how tragicomedy came into existence.



So what is it about tragicomedy which attracts some writers so much? Why is it worth mixing funny elements with tragic elements, and vice versa?

Life sometimes could be thought of as a full time job and one with no time to really look at ourselves. What do I mean by this? Some might feel that self-reflection is a pointless or fruitless task because after all, we are what we are. But is that really true?

Why are so many mysteries, both in print and on the screen, exciting and suspenseful at first and then dull and disappointing in the end?

I have been watching "Shetland," a wonderful British crime series on PBS. Each story takes two one-hour episodes to tell. So far, I have seen four, I think.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
