BEYOND THE SHELF is general commentary about the blog or the mystery and crime writing business by author and site administrator Shannon Muir that doesn’t fall in the scope of a regular column. This week’s topic focuses on taking advantage of unexpected opportunities.

WATCH FOR PART 13 OF 14 OF “SHINING A LIGHT ON CRIME” TO RESUME ON APRIL 20, 2019. SORRY FOR THE INTERRUPTION!

Last week, I talked about the struggle of finding regular times to write and how I write better to deadlines.

A last minute opportunity to write something for submission came my way, with specific requirements and tight deadlines.

I decided to take a chance on it, but that meant letting SHORTS FROM THE SHELF get the backburner for another week. Hopefully I can conclude the story soon and not keep you all waiting!

Thanks for your continued support of THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF.
