One of the truths about crime fiction (and any other kind of writing) is that it’s not done in a vacuum. Writers learn from each other, and crime fiction enthusiasts learn from each other, too.
This year, I’ve learned so much and been so inspired by several different crime fiction and mystery blogs that I’ve decided to honor those blogs today with an Inspiring Blog Award.
Those whose blogs I've listed here keep blogs that inspire me, teach me, and push me to be a better blogger and writer and a more well-read mystery fan. For that, I thank all of you and am eager to learn from you in the new year.
Awardees, feel free to use this image on your blogs if you wish. Even if you don’t, please know how much your blog means to me.
Folks, I highly recommend all of these sites; you’ll be glad you visited them:
