Sunday Foreign Post Roundup

1.  Ask not what your novel can do for you...great advice from a guest blogger at author Alan Orloff's A Million Blogging Monkeys.

2. Ever notice the abundance of troubled relationships in mystery novels?  Well, Margot Kinberg of Confessions of a Mystery Novelist has, and she gives a great breakdown of the phenomenon in this post.

3. We all take reading for granted.  But there are more than 30 million adults in the US (just in the US!) who can't read.  Check out author Beth Groundwater's post, Authors for Adult Literacy, to find out how you can help...and please spread the word.

4. A new-to-me blog and a post to tell you everything's ok, plus the gorgeous picture included! It's Lou Belcher's Writer's Creativity Studio


  1. Thanks for the links, Michele! Hope you'll have a Happy 4th!

  2. I'm always in search for links to fellow mystery writers, so thanks for the pointer to Margot's blog. Great article!

  3. Michele - Thanks so much for posting a link to my blog; how very kind of you! : ). Happy 4th!

  4. Thanks for the great links. Happy 4th of July.

  5. Thanks for the linkage. Happy 4th! :)

  6. Great links, I'll go check them out.

  7. I worked with our community's illiteracy program for four years. Sad how many American adults can't read.

  8. There are many great stories coming from illiterate people, for instance many of the folktales that you wrote about in your blog post last week >:)

    Cold As Heaven

  9. Thanks for the links Michele - hope you and your family are enjoying the holiday :)

  10. Wonderful links Michelle!!! I do often take reading for granted, you never really think about those who don't have the ability to read.
