Keeping up with the 2015 Ned Kelly Submissions - Best Crime

This year I've promised myself a red hot go at reading the entire submissions list for all 3 of the Ned Kelly Categories. Preferably before the 2016 Submissions List is released although there are days when I think I might have bitten off more than I can possibly chew. Still - getting there :)

Next up Best Crime - kept the best to last :)

Keeping up with the 2015 Davitt Awards - Adult Fiction

Because I'm a glutton for punishment, let's add the 2015 Davitt's Award to the upcoming TBR Mountain Range - this time Adult Fiction.

First up - ADULT FICTION :)

IF I TELL YOU... I'LL HAVE TO KILL YOU - Michael Robotham (editor)

Allen & Unwin
Year of Publication: 

CR - If I Tell You.....

This is a seriously brilliant idea this book, one that I'm really pleased to see close to out and about.  (Dislaimer: I was recently invited to join ACWA's committee. A long time after this book was conceived and developed.)

From the Blurb:

Crime fiction is the single most popular genre in international publishing and Australia has some of the finest practitioners when it comes to walking the mean streets and nailing the bad guys.

If I Tell You ... I'll Have to Kill You coming soon

The news is out and I don't think any of us are going to die if we mention If I Tell You…I’ll Have To Kill You: Australia’s Leading Crime Writers Reveal Their Secrets.

A collection of writing on crime and crime writing, described by the Australian Crime Writers as 'a book for fans, wannabe writers and people who love the genre... full of anecdotes and insights, along with some seriously good reading lists.'
