    Nece, I’m not sure what you mean. Can you please clarify your question?

  2. Nece says:

    who are all the mystery authors that write series?

  3. Chris says:

    Ok, keep up the good work, and good luck with spammers.

  4. Mystery Sequels says:

    Chris, because I have recently found my site’s content copied on several other (spammy) sites. I’m working hard to bring new quality content to the site only to have others steal it with one click of a button. Sure, they can still do it, but they’ll now have to work for the honor.

  5. Chris says:

    Thanks for these, but I must ask: why are text selection and right-clicking disabled on this website?

  6. Daniel Eagleton says:

    Hi there,

    I’ve recently uploaded an Ebook onto Amazon kindle, and was wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing it?

    Called ‘Blackspoon,’ it’s a pulp crime thriller about a young RAF officer who is coerced into smuggling heroin back from the war in Afghanistan.

    Thanks for your time,

    Best wishes,

    Dan Eagleton
