    Love, love your list. Keep up the good work.

  2. shirley a fallin says:

    I receive a weekly news release of Cozy Mystery books, which I do enjoy. What I would like to find is a news release on the Medieval Mystery book series. They are not considered as Cozy and I would like to know when new Medieval books are being released to the public.
    Thank you for any information you can give me.

  3. Mystery Sequels says:

    @Julie H Thanks for the mention, I’ve added Chris Culver’s latest book. I used to enjoy his Ash Rashid series, have yet to start reading this one.

  4. Julie H says:

    Another Feb. 1 release is ‘The Girl in the Woods’ by Chris Culver. It’s book #2 in the Joe Court series. (Culver also writes the excellent Ash Rashid series.)

  5. Mystery Sequels says:

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

  6. Nece says:

    who are all the mystery authors that write series?

  7. Chris says:

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

  8. 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.

  9. Chris says:

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

  10. 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
