A blog dedicated to reviewing crime novels published by independent presses everywhere.
Monday, December 31, 2007
Today is the first anniversary for this blog. I'm not big on anniversaries, and I'm not big on new year's resolutions. Change is a gradual process, and not something that you do on an arbitrary date each year. Trying to change just because it's the end of the year or your birthday is pretty much an invitation to failure, so I'm not making any resolutions. I never do. All in all, though, I'd have to say that 2007 wasn't an unmitigated disaster. I finally got out of the newspaper business, and the one story I published this year has been well received, and next year will see at least one more story with my name on it out there. You could say I'm cautiously optimistic, because that's the only type of optimism I've ever been able to manage.
Welcome to the Indie Crime Blog. As the name implies, this blog is dedicated to reviews of crime fiction published by independent presses. There are many books published every year that seem to be ignored for a variety of reasons. The books sections of newspapers are getting smaller. Bookstores give more shelf space to more established authors. I could go on, but you get it.My intent is to review books both old and new in the hopes that some deserving writers and worthy publishers will gain some exposure.
