Genre flash

Genre FlashA couple of weeks ago, I received an email from fellow (sic.) author and Sister in Crime Lindy Cameron with an offer too good to refuse:

“Prompted by a passing reference in the write-up on the Davitt Awards on Angela Savage’s website about expecting no more ‘mileage’ from her wonderful novel Behind the Night Bazaar I thought bugger that – we all need as much mileage as we can get. My latest book Redback certainly hasn’t had enough light shone on it yet; so, as it seems to be still relatively difficult for most of us to get decent review space in the newspapers, I thought I would give us our own space.

“So I am proposing a small, simple but elegant pdf catalogue of any genre fiction or related SinC books, that have been published by Sisters in Crime members – or their Australian women writer friends – in the past 2 years.”

The result of Lindy’s bright idea is Genre Flash 1, a fabulous Summer holiday reading guide. These are books to keep you riveted but relaxed and give you a thrill whatever your taste in crime fiction. Some will make you laugh. Others will make you shiver with macabre fascination.

And while I know all my friends bought my book for themselves and all their friends last Christmas, I do encourage you to support the impressive local talent showcased by Lindy in Genre Flash this holiday season. You’ll be glad you did.

Happy festive season all!

    Thanks Angela – and if you’re talking to Lindy again you can tell her for one – I loved Redback (as I did your Behind the Night Bazaar incidentally 🙂 )

    Regards Karen C
