The Mystery Anthology is Launched!

I'm not a member of the ISWG, but I'm a mystery fan, and the prospect of a collection of mystery short stories was too good to pass up. I've ordered my print copy that will be waiting for me when I get back from my vacation. Go visit the site HERE and grab a copy for yourself: It's in both print format and ebook format.

Here is the blurb: "The clock is ticking...
Can a dead child's cross-stitch pendant find a missing nun? Is revenge possible in just 48 minutes? Can a killer be stopped before the rescuers are engulfed by a city ablaze? Who killed what the tide brought in? Can a soliloquizing gumshoe stay out of jail?
Exploring the facets of time, eleven authors delve into mysteries and crimes that linger in both dark corners and plain sight. Featuring the talents of Gwen Gardner, Rebecca M. Douglass, Tara Tyler, S. R. Betler, C.D. Gallant-King, Jemi Fraser, J. R. Ferguson, Yolanda Renée, C. Lee McKenzie, Christine Clemetson, and Mary Aalgaard.
Hand-picked by a panel of agents and authors, these eleven tales will take you on a thrilling ride into jeopardy and secrecy. Trail along, find the clues, and stay out of danger. Time is wasting…"

Enjoy!

I was sure you were a mystery fan. I also miss anthologies, which have become uncommon. Best combo!

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Your very welcome, Lee.

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

You're welcome, Jemi, and thanks for stoping by. It looks like a great collection. Can't wait to read it.

Hi, Mirka, interesting comment about anthologies. They really have become uncommon. I wonder why that is. But, yes, I'm a mystery fan from way back. Thanks for the visit.

Another great IWSG Anthology hits the shelves.

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Indeed. This is the first IWSG Anthology I was aware of, but I think I've been told it's the third they've put out. Great way to go. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm a big mystery fan and this sounds like a good read.

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Hi, B&E. Yes, it does. I'm looking forward to reading my copy. Sigh. I have to wait a month, though. (Something to look forward to on return.)

Hi, Jess. Somehow I thought you might. I think this is ISWG's third anthology. It must be fun to collaborate like that.

Sandra Cox said...

Very exciting. Congrats to all the Tick Tockers.

Hello, Elizabeth:)

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Hi, Sandra, thanks for the good wishes to them. I'm sure they all appreciate them.

Hi Elizabeth. Just saying hi and letting you know it was me on FB. I realized I hadn't connected with a lot of bloggers so recently sent out a lot of friend requests. But good on your part to check!

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Great. Just wanted to be sure. I'll go check it out, and if I didn't respond with a confirm, I'll remedy that now. Thanks for letting me know.
