Back Talking to Myself...

For the second time, a comment posted on Crimealwayspays
has evaporated.
This time the obvious answer is to simply post comments here and hope they might link in the outer layers of the blogosphere.

Who cares if a comment is not read?

Well, if somebody takes time to comment here, I certainly
take it seriously.
Time, after all, is time...

Here is the missing post. One tip... always make copies of even comment posts, so a record of all one's good ideas will be available in years to come.

On the subject of crime writers and the possibility of them joining forces in order to influence today's publishing trends:

The current upheavels in the World economy seem to be affecting the publishing world in particular.
Nervousness about conflicting media is debated daily.

Writing is a solitary activity... publishing a very public industry.

Until July, 2009 I did not know that half the population of our jolly little island was writing crime novels and thrillers.

Perhaps letting that other sleepy half of the population, the readers, know more about why this genre is so popular might get us reading more?

Local radio is an obvious forum as well as Vimeo and Youtube.

Reading of excerpts from published work would be an enjoyable way of connecting with the voracious reading public.

M Buckley - Your comment did appear on Crime Always Pays, but in a post further down the page ... perhaps that post was the first that popped up when you logged onto the blog. Anyway, your comment is still there, and pristine ... Cheers, Dec

Thank you for that, Declan.

Evidently the cold and damp has seeped into my brain...

Shall concentrate on placing comments properly in future.

Hmm.

The internets are a strange place.

Strange to call them a place, even.
