As you know I have not signed up to any challenges in 2012. In fact I created my own, which can be found at the top of this blog but sometimes you can be tempted.
And so I have been by the Crime Fiction Alphabet hosted by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise. I enjoyed reading Jane’s posts about it in 2011 and spent a lot of time wondering what I would do for each letter, Jane is going for a second year! I have decided to go for my first and will try for every letter.
The rules are very simple – By Friday of each week participants try to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week. The post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book’s title, the first letter of an author’s first name, or the first letter of the author’s surname, or even maybe a crime fiction “topic”. But above all, it has to be crime fiction. Plenty of choice for me, especially as I have had rather a lot of crime fiction dropping through my letterbox. Tempting fate really, because probably now none will drop in! So I can write a review, do something about an author or basically something that fits the ‘crime’ category.
It all starts with the letter A on Monday 21 May.
This will give me a chance to tackle some more Agatha Christie. Some Cosy Crime perhaps? Or even Quirky? Local to me could be good as I know there are a few I need to be catching up on? Oooh the possibilities are endless.
Off to make a list or two as I have a few ideas running through my head, just need to sort them out into the appropriate letters.
Please feel free to make suggestions – you might just tempt me to rethink my alphabet choices!
