Longtime readers may recall a web series I used to write called Femme Fatale. The point of the series was to highlight books written by female mystery/thriller writers. As I reminisced, I contemplated rejuvenating this series.
Then I read this article about the disparagingly few number of female mystery and thriller writers who get reviewed, despite making half of the population of mystery writers. Further spurred by this article, I decided the light the fire under this project and get it moving a little faster.
Consider this post a “stay tuned” as well as an APB for female mystery and thriller writers out there. I want to feature you! I’m not looking for the standard guest posts or interviews, I want something unique and innovative to complement the review. It can be a video, a unique post idea, something that stands out from all other posts. Interested? Either comment below or send me an email (jennsbookshelfATgmail).
I know I’m just one blog and this is no means an attempt to make up for the lost attention female mystery writers receive, but instead an attempt to show you how much I, and my readers, appreciate what you do.
So, stay tuned for more information. I have my thinking cap on. I hope you do too!
