Cozy mysteries are in danger.

Today, while searching for a new book to read, I found out that cozy mysteries are in danger.  Due to mergers and other business factors, some publishers are culling their cozy mystery collections.

What, pray-tell, is a cozy mystery?  Wikipedia states that “Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as “cozies”, are a subgenera of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detections takes place in a small, socially intimate community.

If you are a cozy mystery lover, please be sure to contact the publishers of your favorite series to express how much you love them.  Ask them to continue their support of these great stories and the writers who make them happen.

You can find out more about this issue at Save Our Cozies.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I think this whole thing is sad and I feel bad for authors who are stuck when the publishing company owns their series and they can't continue like Avery Aames who is stuck not being able to continue her Cheese Shop Mysteries unlike her cookbook series that are fine because they are independent. Am a new follower of your blog great job!
