Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 37

They sent out the winners already? According to The Grinder there's one acceptance. Zero chance that’s correct. That’s a false report. I know. Wulf Moon Forum Moderator My guess is that some people count HM, SF, SHM, or F as an acceptance. They are not, of course. I log them as a personal rejection...

Wulf does. I do know there are several layers and, at the higher level, some kind of group consensus process to what makes the final round.

Re: Any Mystery/Who-done-it Winners?

Oh. It's good. (Duh. It won.). It definitely focuses more on the MCs than does mine. Their personal story is hung around the crime as opposed to the story being mainly about the crime and its resolution. Exactly. In both our stories, at least that I could detect, the plot drove it and the character...

Re: Any Mystery/Who-done-it Winners?

I guess not. It's hard to give your detective a choice at the end since she has to solve a crime. Also difficult for the detective to experience major growth for the same reason. An emotional connection to the MC and her having something significant on the line can be challenging as well. All these ...

Anyone recall a mystery/who-done-it winner? I feel like I heard there was at least one but don't see it in any recent volumes.
