The Unspoken Contract Between Author and Reader

The mystery reader, like the romance, horror, fantasy or science fiction reader, has certain expectations when they pick up a book. They want to be entertained. They want memorable characters and a fast-paced plot. They want a satisfying ending.

Pity the writer who fails to deliver the goods! A decline in readership and sales could be on the horizon.

Today is day 2 of the Mystery We Write Blog Tour and I’m discussing why readers read mysteries with Ron Benrey.

Drop by his blog, leave a comment and you’ll be eligible to win one of three e-copies of FRANK, INCENSE AND MURIEL, the first book of my Muriel Reeves Mysteries. (Or, you can also leave a comment here.) The winners will be announced December 9.

What is being said about Frank, Incense and Muriel?

Diana Coyle at Night Owl Reviews said:

“This author knows how to entertain her readers and keeps them wanting to turn the page to see what happens next. If you’re looking for a story with a little bit of humor, a whole lot of suspense and plenty of insanity, then you’ve found the perfect story. I’m highly recommending this story to other readers and I’m definitely adding this book to my library. You won’t be disappointed buying this book or others penned by this author. Great job, Ms. Albert! Keep the stories coming!”

See you at Ron Benrey's blog. Good luck in the draw and happy reading!
