Happy Birthday, Crime Writers!

It's been two years since we came together to produce these pages. We've learned a lot, we've revealed a lot, and now it's time to congratulate ourselves – Champagne, please! – and also to pull up our socks and get serious.

The Crime Writers' Chronicle is going to sharpen its focus now. We're all about crime writing and the crime writer's life, so you'll see more book reviews, more interviews and guest posts of people in the business, more travelogues (if any of us manage to get away), and more photo essays. I promise to stop posting about clothes and shoes.

It's a new era! Onward and upward! Watch this space. Let us know if you have requests.
