I'm an occasional mystery reader and usually rely on others to suggest good mysteries.

I ask my mystery reading friends to suggest a mystery that is, "Not too violent, nor too much blood and delights in clever conundrums, three dimensional characters and interesting twists."

A suggested blog:

Mystery Readers Journal: from Janet Rudolph, Editor

Want to write a mystery?

Contests for Writers

Rules for the 2010 St. Martin’s Minotaur/ Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Competition

The Mystery Writers New England Chapter ran a Crime Bake Mystery Contest in 2009

"... write a compelling crime story in 150 words or less, using at least ten of the title words from the bestselling “alphabet series” by our GUuest of Honor, Sue Grafton!"

Try writing a flash fiction story. Send it to me for posting.

  1. But did anyone suggest a specific mystery with your requirements, which are similar to mine? I couldn't find a reference in your link, although that blog does look interesting.
