Bouchercon Hiatus Call for New Author Voices.

Since February, MIE has opened up a guest slot every other Sunday to mystery writers who base their stories in foreign settings. 

We thought it a great way of introducing our readership to new experiences and places.  The response has been nothing short of terrific.  So much so that we’ve decided to keep the slot open and continue to bring in new voices. 

So, if you're a published mystery author writing about foreign locales who would like the opportunity of reaching a broad, erudite audience, do we have a deal for you.  We have no fixed rules about subject matter other than no BSP. Meaning this is not a forum for touting you or your work, though in introducing yourself you may mention your current book (as well as post its cover and your head shot), list your website, and provide a brief bio for incorporation into your introduction.

Our only requirement is first-class writing that is original material not posted elsewhere.

Posts generally run between 500-800 words though some run to twice that.  Photographs work very well and are encouraged, but just make sure all appropriate credit is given and copyrights observed. 

To quote our good friend and founder, Leighton Gage, “I know you’ll enjoy the experience because you’ll be in really good company.” :)  The smiley is ours.

If you’re interested, please contact Jeff off line at  Of course, there is no guarantee that a submitted piece will be published.  But we will look at them all.
