I just love the web. Clicking through on a story from Media Bistro just now, I found myself at Rosedog.com. It looks a bit like the Bookner concept, but without the review process.
Take a look. If you click through "walk through the showcase" and then select 'novel' and then 'mystery' you'll see the list I selected for. I like mysteries, I've always got my eye peeled for a good one.
So, once you read that list you'll see pretty much what my slush pile looks like on a bad day.
Notice the spelling errors? Notice the complete lack of hooks?
More important, notice how you start to skim, or skip cause you haven't seen anything you want to read more about?
I'd be very interested to see if anyone from this list has gotten representation or a sale.
