New Blog from Jeff Cohen.....

From Jeff:

BSP: Just what you needed--A new blog!

I know what you're thinking: there's no WAY a new blog about mystery publishing could be at all different. Well, I'd have to agree.Until now.Starting Monday, (that's January 8, for those who are calendar- deprived), a new mystery publishing blog called (get ready): HEY, THERE'S A DEAD GUY IN THE LIVING ROOM will debut at and I think it's different.

Granted, I'm one of the authors involved, so I might be biased, but check this out:The blog will have a lineup that takes the mystery process from idea to bookshelf:
Monday: Um, me.
Tuesday: Our very own Denise Dietz (and occasionally her husband, Gordon Aalborg)Wednesday: Editor/Publisher Bruce Bortz of Bancroft Press
Thursday: Our very own Sharon Wheeler, editor of Reviewing the Evidence
Friday: Our very own PJ Nunn, owner of BreakThrough Promotions
Saturday: Robin Agnew, owner of Aunt Agatha's bookstore in Ann Arbor, MI
Sunday: Abby Zidle, editor at Pocket BooksWe'll be talking about writing, editing, publishing, publicizing, reviewing and selling books, as well as... pretty much whatever crosses our twisted little minds (and if you don't think our minds are twisted, let me remind you of the blog's name).

So drop in, starting Monday, and every day thereafter, to HEY, THERE'S A DEAD GUY IN THE LIVING ROOM. Even if you don't learn something, you'll have fun.
