On Thursday, March 8. 2007, I will be in
If you have guessed that “TC” stands for true crime, you’re correct. For the time being at least I’m keeping my actual identity a not too carefully guarded secret. I think it will help me be a little more honest than I might otherwise be, and some of my personal relationships won’t suffer from whatever fallout may come by way of being critical of other writers.
I’m not really a critic. I prefer to try to be creative and leave others room to try and fail, if they must, on the way to success.
But this blog’s main point will be the search for what I consider the perfect read in the true crime genre. Much of what is posted will be reviews of books that I’ve been lead to because I hope they will provide more than a sensational story. I like to be educated as I’m entertained, to learn something about life, or the past. At least I hope to find a well-told cautionary tale. Books that resemble horror stories don’t interest me. Don’t look for them here.
If you’ve found this blog before I build up some content and some rhythm, please have patience. I hope to make it worth checking out before I call attention to it. When I actually start casting about for readers, there will be an email address to communicate with us. I will be looking for comment, tips, and posting the reviews of others if I think they advance the search.
