Scandinavian Politics, Scandinavian Crime

What do you know about the Danish government? Or about Swedish police procedures? We knew absolutely nothing until we started streaming “Borgen” and binging on “The Bridge”.

We really enjoy both Scandinavian television shows!

""Predictable"

I can't agree with the claim that this was a 'gripping psychological thriller' nor did it 'have me at the edge of my seat'. It was predictable and there were several annoying typos. Dale met with his wife's 'layers' on a couple of occasi" Read more of this review »

James Moushon Hi.

I’d like to introduce myself. Besides being the author of the Jonathon Stones Mystery Series, I am a strong Author's Advocate. I write articles highlighting other authors books. Also, I do author interviews and post them on my blogs. Thanks for friending me. Here’s my latest article.

Authors: The Task of Finding Readers – A Study
Over 30 Outstanding Authors Share Their Experiences.

All authors can learn something from this study.

As they say “This is great stuff. As authors try to gain traction in today’s marketplace. The secret besides writing good books is to find readers and establish relationships.”

You can view the complete study on the blog: HBS Author’s Spotlight

Veronica Dale Thanks for connecting. Your Valley of Thracians has quite an interesting premise. Both of my books--fantasy with a spiritual journey theme--were also printed by CreateSpace, and I found they did a good job.

Beth Lyon Barnett Thanks for being my friend. I too have friends living in Israel and my book, Jazz Town, is about a German Jewish boy trying to come of age in Kansas City's mafia-ridden society in the 1920's. I plan on definitely reading one of your books. -b-
