PLOTS WITH GUNS - the Article

I'm sitting here at home on one of the rare occassions when no one is home and it is absolutely quiet. I have the stereo cranked and I've been typing since I got back home from dropping the kids (6) off at various locations around town. I still have a few hours before I make the rounds to pick them up again. After 4.5 hours of composing text, I thought I should take a break from writing this probably overdue article for Crime Spree.

This has been a fascinating assignment and I'm thankful to the Jordan clan for allowing me the opportunity to put this together and give my take on PWG.

What has occured to me while writing this is how does the average person find an e-like PWG? How many of you have taken the time to track down the authors of the pieces that you've like to provide them some feedback? I like your thoughts on this, so please respond either here or at my email address....

Now its back to work or Jennifer JOrdan will have my butt!

Jennifer is scary. Which is a great turn-on, actually.

Ah, Plots With Guns and the other e-zines. I love 'em. I usually read through and if something catches my eye I really try to track down the author and let 'em know. I remember the most difficult being Mike MacLean for a story he wrote for Thrilling. These e-zines are full of terrfic writing, and hell, these authors deserve to hear about it.

A few years ago, when I accidentally wrote a mystery and started reading more of them, I found crime/mystery e-zines the same way I found the SF/F/H ones a few years earlier. A link somewhere or other (an author's CV, most likely) got me to one, and then I followed the links page and author bios. PWG was an early discovery, along with Blue Murder, HandHeldCrime, OMDB, OPM, and Thrilling Detective.

Hey, instead of "PWG and all those others" or "Ah, the ezines", how about "Plots with Guns as it stands on its own, kicking everyone's ass"? Don't just lump it in, you know? I wouldn't dream of doing that--we all have our different flavors, attitudes, and approaches.

So, I might be a little biased....

Hugs and Kisses,
