Looking back and going forth.By Alison Bruce
It started with National Crime Writing Month - an annual event run by Crime Writers of Canada. This in turn started with National Crime Writing Week followed by National Crime Writing Fortnight.
Events are held at libraries and bookstores in cities across Canada. But, I asked myself, what if you don't live in a major city? What if you don't have a crime writer within a hundred kilometres of you?
That was how this blog was born.It was so popular, one month led to three years. In that time we're run topics including: Great Detectives; Great Villains; Evil; Suspense; Location and even the Weather.
But, several of us asked ourselves, if it goes on all year round, what's so special about May?
So, we're going back to what the blog was supposed to be: an annual virtual event. If you have any ideas about what our topic should be, please put them in the comments.
