Time. We all need it. We all have it. We all use it. But do we honor it the way we should? Do we respect time? There is so much we could do with more time. For writers, there’s so much more we could write with more time. But using time as a theme? Why not? It makes a good source of mystery and drama and keeps the plot moving along at a grand pace, even in a short story. Why? Because there’s always time for a good story, a good mystery.

“Tick Tock: A Stitch in Crime” is a collection of short stor

Are you in the mood for some good mysteries? Do ghosts hang around you? Have you ever been accused of committing a crime? Do you sometimes wish you could go back in time and change the past? I could go on and on, but if you can answer any of these questions with a “yes” then you’ll likely want to learn more. So, get a copy of TICK TOCK A STITCH IN CRIME an Insecure Writer’s Support Group Anthology and meet some very interesting characters. If you dare.

In this anthology, you’ll find stories by Je

If you like mystery and crime stories, then I'd highly recommend this anthology published by the Insecure Writer's Support Group. All of the authors have woven a theme of time into their stories in unique and interesting ways. I liked how different the stories were, ranging from cozy mysteries to darker tales, and all of them drew me in and left me wanting more. Anthologies are a great way to try out new authors and sample different writing styles. There's something here for everyone.

Once again, some of the best writers in the IWSG (Insecure Writer's Support Group) have pooled their impressive talents to create another fantastic collection of short stories that are well worth reading. This time, mystery is the name of the game, and time is of the essence. Each of the stories is uniquely enjoyable, and all I can say is: What do these writers have to be insecure about? They can WRITE!

Four and a half stars, rounded up to five.

Extremely enjoyable selection of short stories on the theme of crime and time. I felt there was one too many wronged wife stories, but maybe that's just par for the course. As usual with these things, some are outstanding. Kudos to all the authors!

Her lifelong love of books and reading transitioned naturally into a love of writing, where adventure can be found around every corner—or up a dark alley or a dow
