Sunday Foreign Post Roundup

1. Alex and his book cover--it's like a man and his car, except we can all appreciate the relationship.

2.  There must be something in the air, b/c Jill Edmondson announces her second book cover here.  And I have to say, it's even better than her first.

3.  Riots, government, and a history lesson on Thailand from author Timothy Hallinan at Murder is Everywhere.
4.  Patriotism, Australian style: ANZAC Day on Publish or Perish.

5.  Debbie Cowans takes on CSI, Victorian-style.

6. And read Debbie's fantastic Victorian detective story right here!

7. X for Unknown...and bring your thinking hats.
8. This post may be one from the past, but is a fascinating glimpse into the murder rate (or lack thereof) in Iceland.  A Sunday Foreign Post Roundup wouldn't be complete without a few links from the writers at Murder is Everywhere!

9. Stephen King fans delight...My favorite producer/director combo is taking on one of the horror master's series!  To find out which one, click over to The Hollywood Spy.  He has all the latest!

10. Irish writers take on myths...Check it out at Detectives Beyond Borders.

11. Beautiful picture, gorgeous poem, and a look at the world today and tomorrow at quoteflections.

12.  Last Sunday I "discovered" Miss Lemon's Mysteries; this week I bring you one of her recommendations: Who is Simon Warwick?  Read here to find out what it's all about!

12.  Oh, you MUST read this: My own Picture of Dorian Gray.


  1. Thanks for the mention! That cover's even better than a car.
    And Dez is THE go-to guy for The Hollywood scoop.

  2. Yay for all the fabulous mentions! Headed over to check them out now!

  3. I believe I was even more excited about Alex's book cover than he himself :) I've even hanged it over in my side-bar to proudly promote his upcoming bestseller :)

    Thanks for the linky-dinky :)

  4. Alex- Of course! It's a big deal!

    Jen- They are some great blogs...

    Dez- You should be a promoter. Woohoo for Alex! And, anytime.

  5. Thanks for the awesome links! Enjoy the rest of the day :)

  6. Thanks for the links! I'm really excited about the prospect of a Dark Tower film trilogy.

  7. Jemi- You, too!

    Debbie- I know, right? Dez has all the latest news.
