SISTERS IN CRIME, provides an interesting way to get your book(s) to a wide audience. SinC is a national organization for mystery writers, primarily female. I have included the newsletter details I received as a member that enlisted me to put my book in contention.

Book Club Central Opportunity

June 2019

Dear Linda,


It’s time to gather submissions for the June Book Club Central Booklist. The theme is Wedded to Crime – books centered around romance, weddings, love gone wrong, or other romantic entanglements or drama. Have you written a romantic suspense novel,  a mystery set in the wedding industry, or a thriller with a strong romantic element, for example? Please submit.


Submission period: Opens May 10 – Closes May 17.


Fill out the entry form and return it by midnight Friday, May 17. Please:


Include cover copy or short summary/teaser;
Include a sentence or two about themes prevalent in the story that would be good topics for discussion;
Attach jpeg of cover;
Include a link to your author website;
Include a link to discussion questions, if such a page exists on your website (this field is optional, but discussion questions are highly desirable to the Book Club Central audience).


When all submissions are received, we use a random number generator to pick entries. Please remember Book Club Central reserves the right to edit, amend, or omit selections.


Authors may send only ONE submission and this opportunity is open ONLY to members of Sisters in Crime. Make your submission through this link  – Book Club Central Monthly Booklist.  If you have questions, please contact me.

Look for opportunities like this to give your book a boost.

  • Always think about BOOK DISCUSSION QUESTIONS for your book.

  • An ELEVATOR PITCH and a 25 word summary on tap will help you to talk about your book(s) spontaneously. Because, you just never know.

  • Join national and international writers organizations to receive authors like this one.

  • Enter contests. Its all about press, exposure in the media.
