Crime Fiction Fix Magazine #CrimeFiction @CrimeFictionFix

Launched in August 2015, Crime Fiction Fix is a digital subscription-only magazine for writers and readers of crime fiction, with author interviews plus a range of skills-based articles each month providing advice on the art and craft of writing.  The magazine was founded, and is edited, by Sarah Williams, publisher and author of How to Write Crime Fiction (Little, Brown 2015).

Crime Fiction Fix: February Fix  
The two power women who are AD Garrett Ÿ 
“One of the greatest gifts you can bestow on a fellow writer is the truth – your honest reaction to what they’ve written”

In this month’s issue of Crime Fiction Fix, the digital best friend to every aspiring crime fiction
writer, there is a crowd of exclusive content from superb writers and tips on how to write your own crime fiction masterpiece.

The masterminds behind the bestselling books of AD Garrett, Margaret Murphy and Helen Pepper, are in the Feature Speaker seat discussing the Fennimore and Simms series.

The New Kid on the Block is Jane Harper, her debut The Dry is published by Little, Brown and the film rights have already been bought by Reese Witherspoon’s production company.

We are also introduced to new YA crime writer Sara Shephard, best known for her YA series Pretty Little Liars, in the brand new Fresh Blood slot.

There is also a heavy injection of criminological advice. Firstly, in the form of an article on the curious psychological phenomenon known as the Cinderella Effect which concerns the alleged higher incidence of mistreatment and different forms of child-abuse by stepparents than by the biological parents. In the Technical Question slot, we explore how to describe a character’s experience of being a victim of ransomware.

Finally, there is a great article on how you can become both critic and writer; John DeDakis writes about how to help your own writing and that of other writers. And -  new this month – Sam Eades, Commissioning Editor at Orion, talks about the upcoming trends in crime fiction and the motif of sisters in the Be On The Look Out For slot.
