What I especially love are whodunits—Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four, Agatha Christie’s Cat Among the Pigeons. But the mystery that’s consuming my life right now is not a whodunit. It’s a howsitdun—how do blogs work?

In this howsitdun:

• I’m the detective
• There are no suspects
• Each of the clues is a riddle in itself

As Sherlock Holmes says, “The game’s afoot”—and as Hercule Poirot might concur, “It’s a problem to vex the little grey cells.”

Stay tuned….

  1. Did I accidently bump you from the class? Go sign up again if I did – I purged the non-participants on Wednesday, but it looks like you have a good start.

    Keep at it – you need some info about you and your book – also Facebook and Twitter links if you have them. Post 2-3 times a week and soon you’ll create some buzz.


  2. Dani,

    I don’t have any Facebook or Twitter links yet because I haven’t sold my mystery yet. I’m still in the process of sending out queries. I’ve gone to the group site and asked to join again.

  3. I can’t tell you the number of beginning writers who are already blogging actively and are on Twitter and Facebook. By the time they sell their first novels or nonfiction books, they’ll have a ready-to-buy audience because of their popularity. I wish I had been savvy enough to do all this before my first book came out instead of a year after. Jump in and start swimming — we’ll all help you.

  4. Patricia,
    Many thanks for the advice. I’ll certainly think about it. The thing I’m strapped for right now is time.

  5. LOL I love that you made blog book tours class into a mystery. I’ve been asking myself the very same question. Who done it to my hows it done. The answer is three fold. Me, myself and I.


  6. Nancy,
    I know exactly what you mean!
