This is just a friendly reminder that #SouthernCrossCrime2021 is almost here.
Things kick off on Monday 1st March and will run right throughout the month. I was going to put together a schedule, focusing on specific types of crime writing on different weeks (for example, historical & nostalgic crime in week 1, psychological crime, suspense & thrillers in week 2, etc etc), but I know I will never stick to it, and I think it’s easier for all involved just to read and review what you want when you want!
I’m excited about the month ahead. I’ve already begun reading a bunch of crime books so that I’ve got something to review when things kick off and I’m looking forward to telling you about some wonderful Southern Cross Crime that I have been enjoying, including a brilliant cosy crime novel from a local Fremantle author, a true crime book about women who poisoned family members in 1950s Sydney, and a nail-biting thriller that gives a serious nod to Wake in Fright and Wolf Creek!
Let me know in the comments below if you plan on taking part or if you have any questions. I look forward to celebrating all things #SouthernCrossCrime2021 with you from next Monday…
