The Six-Word Series is Coming!

If you've read my interviews, you know I end each one with the same question, "What is your six-word memoir?" And yes, I "borrowed" the concept from the book NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS EXPECTING: SIX-WORD MEMOIRS OF WRITERS FAMOUS AND OBSCURE. But, it is a popular question with each interview. I have been wanting to do something special with these responses, and I decided that I'm going to make a scrapbook with them. In addition, I'm going to do something fun on the blog.

Over the last couple months I've been trying to contact other authors to inquire after THEIR six-word memoirs as well. The response has been wonderful and I'm excited to tell you that I will have a series of posts throughout the summer of six-word memoirs from crime fiction writers! Each week on Wednesday - starting this Wednesday - I'll have four memoirs. Two will be from authors I've interviewed, so those will be recaps. Then two NEW memoirs will be added to the mix as well.

I'm very excited about this series, and I hope you are too. I absolutely love these memoirs. They're a lot of fun, and I think you're going to enjoy the round-up of authors who have contributed to this project. So, check back on Wednesday and see who starts all this fun!

REMINDER: Today is the LAST DAY TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY FOR A COPY OF A CARRION DEATH. Check here for details on how to enter. Don't miss your chance to win this awesome debut by the fabulous writing team of Michael Stanley!

And don't forget that tomorrow is Monday Mystery Backlist day. Even though it is Memorial Day, I'll still be posting the backlist title. Hope you'll stop by to check it out!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend and Happy Reading!

I absolutely love this book and used the concept in class this year with my 8th graders. I will be looking forward to these posts this summer!

What a neat idea! I look forward to seeing who all you've corraled for this exercise.
