Today is the second anniversary of Murder By Type. The purpose of the blog is to introduce authors who don’t get publicity help from their publishers to the attention of mystery fans who can never have too many books to read.
The first book reviewed was Cara Black’s MURDER IN THE PALAIS ROYAL. Since then another 622 posts have been added. I am very grateful to the authors who post on their blog Murder Is Everywhere who allow me to borrow their work and, by doing so, vastly improve the quality of mine.
There have been 1267 comments on the posts and, shockingly from my point of view, the blog has had 75,282 views. When my daughter set it up, neither of us thought anyone would be able to find it. A sitemeter on the blog reminds me that www really means world wide web.
Thank you to all who come by everyday and thank you to all who find the blog when tracking a book. There is no way I can know if the blog is encouraging people to purchase any of the books reviewed or to request that their local libraries purchase the books of an author they discovered. That has been the goal. Now to start year three.
