Hi Jon, I'm also in the editing stage of my first crime story, set in Melbourne and Ballarat. It's a contemporary detective story with a supernatural element, see how it goes. I wrote the story as a creative writing project for my BA and I choose crime/mystery because I wanted to explore exposition techniques and work on my vernacular dialogue. Look forward to being part of this community, cheers.

Partly it's a way for me to convey information about the two main characters that is independent of both of them. But also, I guess its a way of me framing the story and breaking up the to and fro structure a bit.

Hello all. I've been working on a novel for the last two years (Shakespeare Murders) and I am hoping to have it finished within the next 18 months. I like writing in the real world but would like to try my hand at building a fantasy world some day.

Hello I know I am answering pretty late but I'm a new person to join this community! I'm super excited and I'm just going to share a bit about myself. I live in California and I love to write Horror and Crime Novels. I love to write these kind of books because I have a very serious taste. I'm not very fun and games when it comes to books. I love to use very descriptive words and just have the reader act like they are really there.

I have written a variety of things; Fanfiction, a short story, a kid's book, and even a non-fiction piece recalling a personal experience The book I am about to write will be my first Mystery. I am hoping that from all the mysteries I read when I was a kid, I can put together a decent book of my own.

I am Jav Bond, a new writer here. I hail from New Zealand and write from many platforms which includes the popular site called Wattpad. I have written books in 1-3 genres so far and continue to write more if I try. I have recently written a book: The Hunt is the name for it and I hope you give it a try. The link will be below. I write in many genres because I don't believe in limiting myself to one genre so I experiment and write in all. So that's a brief description of mine and I can't wait for you all read to my books as soon as I start writing and publishing!

Here is the link for the book I was talking about:

The Hunt by J.B (Wattpad)

And I hope you enjoy.


Jav Bond

Hi, I'm a late starter, a 76 yr old retiree, who self published a book three years ago and now am working on a sequel. I've always liked detective fiction and crime shows on tv, and chose this genre as I thought I understood it better than other forms of creative writing. Tablo seems like a good way to swap ideas and get your work read and critiqued before publishing. I look forward to reading others' work and have my own read.

I've just graduated university and started my career. I've won a few writing contests and one of those stories just expanded into a full crime novel for me. I've finally started writing the damn thing, committing myself to publishing chapters/scenes weekly. It follows a rookie detective and his misanthropic mentor investigating crime in the fictitious city of Magnus, but it turns out to be part of a much larger conspiracy that reaches into the halls of the wealthy and powerful. I'm happy to provide feedback on other people's works if they're willing to return the favour!
