Hoping to make Crime pay? Free online Masterclass on crime writing might help…

The Writing Academy at Penguin Random House say they will reveal the secrets of crime writing in all its gory details in an online masterclass that will run later this week.
It will cover suspense, research and the importance of accuracy along with how to write a compelling first chapter and end with a bang.
It will be broadcast on Thursday March 29th at 6pm (UK time), but don’t worry if that’s not a good time for you. If you register your interest on the Writing Academy’s website you will be sent the recording and slides.

    What a treat to find you, via Chris, today. I shall follow with interest. Thriller threads are in my manuscript but I keep creeping into humour territory with my MC and I’m not convinced the two go together!!

    Welcome! (And you have a very interesting blog yourself). I don’t think there’s anything wrong with humour in a thriller – remember the gate keeper’s scene in Macbeth? Quote that if anyone raises an eyebrow. It’s all about light and dark – if there are pinpricks of light than the dark seems darker. (If it is equallly balanced, however, I think there may be a problem unless it falls into the cosy crime genre.) All power to your writing!
