Eligible authors must have been professionally published in any genre and must be living in Minnesota. Stories must be set at a real Minnesota resort, although the actual name of the resort may not be used. Authors must tell the Crime Wave which Minnesota resort they intend to use as their setting to avoid duplications. All stories must contain at least one murder and will range from 1,000 to 7,500 words in length. Contracts and payment of $100
will be issued upon acceptance of each story.
Spokesbabe Ellen Hart said, "This is a great opportunity for authors in other genres who want to try crime fiction." "We'll be looking for strong motivation, suspense and interesting characters," commented William Kent Krueger. "And don't forget pace and good description," added Carl Brookins. The crime wave trio, mystery authors all, has pledged their usual strong
efforts to promote the anthology once it is released. The Minnesota Crime Wave has become known for its compelling costumed presentations to audiences at bookstores, libraries and other venues across the country.
