    Today, I posted the first weekly link round-up at the Indie Crime Scene. We've got lots of good stuff: reviews, interviews, con reports, crowdfunding, writing advice, research topics of interest to crime fiction writers, free crime fiction on the web and general articles about crime fiction, so check it out.

    We are always looking for submissions.

    Wonderful site! I won't be ready to publish until next year, but have bookmarked it. My novels are mysteries with a soft sci-fi flavor. Not sure if they qualify, but this is a great resource regardless!

    Thanks, Sheshenet. Even if your novels don't fit the Indie Crime Scene, we also have a science fiction and fantasy focussed sister site.

    Anyway, it's Saturday and therefore time for the weekly link round-up at the Indie Crime Scene, this week with the new Twin Peaks, The Keepers, tributes to Roger Moore and much more.

    We are always happy about your submissions.

    Great idea, I subscribed. My last release was two months ago, but I'll have a new one in August.
    My Bestselling, 18-volume Jesse McDermitt Series and the spinoff,  5-volume Charity Styles Series, also bestsellers, are available in ebook, audiobook, and paperback, wherever books are sold. In my motivational non-fiction, Blue Collar to No Collar, I provide tips, advice, and strategies for new authors, also available in the same formats. Don't forget to visit the Ship's Store for Jesse McDermitt swag.

    Thanks for this, Cora - just got my first newsletter today and found it really interesting. I hope to submit something soon as I've just this week released a new mystery, but that has coincided (as it almost always does) with a lot of other stuff to do, so I haven't got organised yet.

    A question for everyone on this thread. The first three books in my sig are UF/Sci-fi/mystery/thrillers set in a dystopian future. Is there a mystery-thriller audience for these? So far I've targeted UF and Sci-fi dystopian. If so, how do I reach it? The books ain't Tess Gerritson or James Patterson (though Stephanie Plum readers might like).
    This post remains on KBoards over my objections.

    Contact me, when your thriller is ready, Stacy. I'm looking forward to featuring it.

    BR, in my experience there is quite a bit of crossover between mystery/thriller readers and urban fantasy readers, particularly urban fantasy with a strong mystery/thriller slant. For example, the Peter Grant/Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch is an urban fantasy series that is highly popular with mystery readers, particularly in the UK, where it has been specifically marketed to mystery readers as far as I know. And the In Death series by J.D. Robb a.k.a. Nora Roberts, which are straight-up mysteries set in a near future New York, are actually more popular with crime/thriller readers and with romance readers (due to Nora Roberts' romance pedigree and the strong central relationship between NYPD detective Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Rourke) than with SF readers.

    Meanwhile, I posted the weekly round-up of interesting links about crime fiction from around the web, this time with the new Twin Peaks, new books from Ruth Rendell and Dan Brown, CrimeFest 2017, trailer for several new crime and thriller movies and much more.   

    We are always happy about submissions.

    Today's featured new release at the Indie Crime Scene is Winter Downs, the first in the Bunch Courtney Investigates series of historical mysteries set in WWII by Jan Edwards.

    We are looking forward to your submissions. And BTW, I'm really pleased with the sheer variety of mysteries, crime novels and thrillers we#ve featured at the indie Crime Scene so far.
