Show Me the Body

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on August 3, 2011

Check out my blog post at The Kill Zone today for the answer to this burning question: How soon should the body show up in a mystery?

    Enjoyed your blog post! I always wondered if there was a guideline about that.

    BTW, I just read a recent article about “Why Novelists Shouldn’t Blog” at

    I disagree with Livia’s premise, but loved the comments. Thought you might have some comments – or a new blog post – about this as well.

    Have a great day!

  2. Rebecca, I read Livia’s post, and while she makes some valid points, I disagree that blogging isn’t useful for writers. Even if I attract a following of other authors, writers are readers, too. And if name recognition is the goal of most promo efforts, this is another way to get your name out there. The blog is copied to many other sites so it doesn’t just show up here. As for blogs pushing book sales, who’s to say which of our efforts work toward that purpose?
