Criminal Element and a Goodreads Giveaway

I've got two things to report today. First is an article I wrote for Criminal Element, "a community website featuring daily content for fans of the crime and mystery genres in all of their forms." The article is titled "Murder in the Great Outdoors." It is about the subgenre of mystery novels whose settings are in the outdoors, such as my RM Outdoor Adventures series. You can read the article HERE. It includes a summary of the series of some of my favorite authors in this genre, including Dana Stabenow. The cover art for Dana's latest release in her Kate Shugak series, Bad Blood, is shown below. Please leave a comment at the bottom of the article to let me know what you think of it and to tell me the name of YOUR favorite outdoor mysteries author.

The second thing to report is that I've started a Goodreads giveaway for two free copies of the third book in my RM Outdoor Adventures series, Fatal Descent, that will be released on June 8th. The cover art is shown below. If you are a Goodreads member, you can enter the giveaway by going HERE. Good luck!

Hey Beth, I like your cover a lot (and better than Dana's but we can keep that between the two of us).

I've enjoyed Nevada Barr's series involving Anna Pigeon.

Thanks, Jim, for the cover feedback! You'll be glad to know that Library Journal says, "Groundwater’s third entry (after the Left Coast Crime Rocky Award finalist Wicked Eddies) is marked by an outdoorsy intensity and authentic sports chatter sure to resonate with Nevada Barr readers."
