[Chatter] Writers Wanted at HonestGamersYou're invited to join and contribute to a video game community that is actually about video games!
""N" is for Noose (Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries)" is the 14th novel in the popular "Alphabet Mysteries" series, which features fictional sleuth Kinsey Millhone. If author Sue Grafton eventually writes a book to correspond to each letter, as seems to be her plan, then this is the first step into the second half of that project. It's a good first step, too.
"M Is for Malice" finds Kinsey Millhone once again reunited with Robert Dietz, a fellow private investigator who played such a prominent role in "G Is for Gumshoe." It's nice to see how things have been going for him since he walked out of her life all those months ago, and it's nice to see the interactions between the two as they try to come to an agreement about what place there is for one another in their respective lives.
I'm frustrated by how difficult it is lately to generate enough revenue to keep a site online, let alone regularly updated. Rather than whine overly much, I thought I would quickly share some numbers to hopefully give you an idea just how difficult the ongoing battle has finally become, and why bloggers and niche webmasters such as myself are turning to crowdfunding as a means of support.
Let's start with the traffic that HonestGamers received in July of 2014, as measured by Google Analytics. It's not a lot, but I imagine there are plenty of niche site webmasters who would consider it a marked improvement over their own sites' performance. Traffic is always relative to something.
"L Is for Lawless" takes chances, and that tends to put a person on an author's side. None of us want a formula--even a great one--to have the chance to grow tiresome. The problem is that when Sue Grafton takes chances, she tends not to have the sort of success that drew readers to her work in the first place. Such is the case in this instance. She has produced a mystery novel that strays about as far from her formula as possible while still belonging in the same genre.
