Sunday Foreign Post Roundup

1. Anne Elle Altman reviews Jane Eyre.  And you should love this book, too.

2.  Apprenticeship in crime fiction?  Check it out at IT'S A CRIME! (OR A MYSTERY...)

3. A poem in honor of International Women's Day at Fullet's Secret Forest.

4.  L. Diane Wolfe posts about book reviews--are they important?  Her post really made me think, so check it out here.

5. If you like historical mysteries, this book introduced to me by Marcia at The Printed Page should be up your alley.  (Particularly interesting to fans of Tasha Alexander.)  Click over to see which book we're talking about!

6. What Farm Animal are you? from Cathy at Kittling Books.
You Are a Cow
You are a kind, nurturing, and caring creature. You are deeply connected to the world around you.
You have a good intuition, and you sense what people need from you. You are happy to give as much as you can.You are a very placid creature. Because you remain so calm and cool, people seem to underestimate your mind.
You are extremely intelligent and aware, but you don't always show it. You're more likely to reflect on your thoughts than share them with the world.
And, as I wrote on Cathy's blog, "Ok, at first I was like 'What!', but the description is flattering, so I am a cow!"

7.  When I first started blogging, I found this blog--The Dangerous Pages Review.  Or she found me, I'm not sure which.  But I have recently been so bogged down in family affairs and my own blog that I wandered away from this most excellent location.  On Monday Sharazad came to Southern City Mysteries with a comment, and reminded me to go back to one of my favorite blogs.  I recommend you check The Dangerous Pages Review weekly, and for this week, click over to her review of Mein Kampf.  It's not called "dangerous" by chance!

8. Crime & comedy at Paul D. Brazill's blog...It's a crime how funny it is. :)

9. Writing the white space--excellent post on writing for smart readers by Anne Elle Altman.

10.  Former detective and writer Lee Lofland says this show is ACCURATE!  Check out his post on Southland.

11.  For southerners, the Mint Julip letter at Art and Literature.

12.  A little off the beaten writing path, but writers like to impact the world, right?  Paul C. of Quoteflections shares his plan to solve a global problem.  And for more entries (or to add your own), go to Good.is.

13.  Who gets tired of writers' questions?  Elspeth will crack you up with this take.

14.  The Screaming of the Innocent.  If that title doesn't get your attention, then nothing I write after it will.  And what would a Sunday Foreign Post Roundup be without a link to Murder is Everywhere?
