Holiday Mysteries: Call for Articles

The next issue of the Mystery Readers Journal will focus on Crime for the Holidays. This includes any holiday: Thanksgiving, Halloween, Day of the Dead, Passover, you name it. If you have a book or story set during a holiday or in which a holiday is a major theme, consider writing an Author! Author! essay for MRJ. 500-2500 words, first person, upclose and personal about yourself, your books and the holiday connection. Think of it as chatting with friends, readers and other writers in the cafe or bar. Be sure and add a 2-3 sentence bio/tagline and snail-mail address. Deadline is February 15.

I'm also looking for articles, reviews, and names and emails of authors you think should be included.

Mystery Readers Journal is in its 25th year. It's a hard-copy quarterly, with a web presence, as well. To see sample articles from past issues, go to:
