Writers, you should follow: Elizabeth Spann Craig


One of the most rewarding parts of writing a book like ‘Blogging for Writers’ (forthcoming late 2014/early 2015, have I mentioned this before??) is finding and making contact with the many great bloggers who feature in it.

I thought I’d share them with you in an occasional series, ‘Writers, you should follow…’ The first is Elizabeth Spann Craig, a murder mystery writer based in North Carolina. Elizabeth writes the Memphis Barbeque series for Penguin/Berkley (as Riley Adams), the Southern Quilting mysteries for Penguin/NAL, and the Myrtle Clover series for Midnight Ink and independently.

Elizabeth’s blog really is a goldmine – she writes about her writing process and the business of writing, posts useful links and tips, reviews platforms and online tools for writers. There are regular lists of Twitterific writing links, all of which then go into the Writers’ Knowledge Base, a specialist search engine for writers which Elizabeth developed with Mike Fleming.

You can easily see why Elizabeth’s blog has been in the Writer’s Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers for the last five years. It’s a very rich resource. Follow Elizabeth on Twitter too, and check out her useful Follow List for Writers.
