Welcome to Hey, There's A Dead Guy in the Living Room, where you can read about book publishing--especially mystery book publishing--from every angle.

On Mondays, you'll find the author's viewpoint from Jeffrey Cohen. Tuesdays, you'll read about publishing from a literary agent's point of view, through Barbara Poelle of the Irene Goodman Agency.

But this blog isn't just about the author's perspective: on Wednesdays, Lynne Patrick of Creme de la Crime, the U.K. publishing company specializing in debut crime fiction, gives us the publisher's perspective. On Thursdays, book editor Alison Janssen of Bleak House Books gives her views on what makes a book good, attractive and marketable.

Fridays see PJ Nunn, owner of BreakThrough Promotions, blog on publicity: how she does it and what it can do for you. Saturdays, Robin Agnew, owner of Aunt Agatha's mystery bookshop in Ann Arbor, Michigan, writes about her passion for selling books. And on Sundays, reviewer Kim Malo discusses the good and bad, and how she decides which is which.

So check in every day for more about mysteries, books, marketing, writing and editing (and whatever other topics might appeal to our twisted minds) at Hey, There's A Dead Guy in the Living Room!
