Writing the Cozy Mystery

February 5, 2014

Do you want to write a mystery but don’t have a clue where to start? Or maybe you’ve begun a whodunit but are stuck on the plot? Perhaps you’re already writing a series, and you need tips on how to keep track of your material?Cozy

After hearing numerous aspiring writers ask for advice on how to write a mystery, I decided to compile an easy-to-read instructional booklet on this needed topic.

What makes a cozy different from other crime fiction? How do you plot the story? Where does your sleuth originate? How do you plant clues?

The answers to these questions and more are in Writing the Cozy Mystery.

This title is now available on Amazon but will appear soon in multiple digital formats, including Nook, Kobi, iBooks, & SW. A print edition is coming next. Please keep watch on my website for links to these editions.

For the affordable rate of $0.99, what have you got to lose?

  1. Hey Nancy,

    Congrats on finishing your new book! Oftentimes it seems the world doesn’t care when the author writes “The End,” but we writers know the travail, the punishing work, the long hours that have gone into that moment. It’s a very significant time – perhaps only a few seconds in duration – but it encapsulates such a long road of commitment, such bravery, really, on the part of the writer to have used up such life energy and to finally, against all odds, bring it to a conclusion. That ain’t easy! All best to you and enjoy the moment!
