Goodreads asked Donald J. Bingle:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Donald J. Bingle I'm involved in a writers' group and I often do panels on writing topics at game and science fiction conventions like GenCon, Origins, and WindyCon. One of the things I've mentioned when talking to other writers is that the search history of someone who writes mysteries and spy thrillers ends up with a lot of odd things about it. And then it occurred to me that when I submitted chapters to my group about murder or terrorist weapons and such that they would all be giving me advice on a subject that would be unthinkable in any other context. That was the genesis for Frame Shop, a mystery/thriller set in a writers' group, which gets unknowingly involved in giving out some deadly real-life advice. I've got a Kickstarter running for Frame Shop right now. Take a look at Remember, critiquing another writer can be murder.
