Cozy Mystery Carnival

What is it? 

Here at Writing Cozy Mysteries, every month, I host the Cozy Mystery Carnival, which includes the best blog posts from all over the blogosphere on the art of cozy mysteries. These include cozy book reviews, tips on writing cozies, editing, getting over procrastination, blogging for writers, getting around promotion and marketing, querying agents and editors, and so much more.

When is it held? 

The first day of every month.

When is the next one coming up?

Actually, our very first one will be held on August 1st!

Where is it held?

Right here at Writing Cozy Mysteries. If you're interested in hosting for August or any month forward, please contact me through the form on the sidebar with a link to your blog, your name, and your email. I'll get back to you shortly!

How can I submit a post to the next edition of the carnival?
On the right side of the screen, if you scroll down, you'll see a "Contact Me!" form. Fill out your name and email, and leave a link to your blog post. I'll respond as soon as possible to let you know whether or not your blog post will be included.

How many blog posts will be featured per carnival? 

It depends on both the quality and quantity of post links I get. If I feel I have too many (over thirty-five), I'll save some for next month's carnival. If I feel I have too little (under ten), I'll still post the carnival, but I'll try my best to gather more posts next time.

Can we submit a post on writing in general? How about querying agents? Book marketing? Social media for writers?

Of course! As long as your blog post pertains to writers who write fiction and isn't specific to any genre other than cozy mysteries, I'd love to see it in the next edition of the carnival.
