Well, folks, it would seem that the Crime Cafe has reached the end of its Season One run! I have to tell you it’s been an exciting thing doing a podcast. I’ll no doubt spend a good deal of time rustling up some new crime fiction, suspense and thriller authors to interrogate interview on the show.

But in the meantime, I’ll be interviewing me, myself and I on the next podcast! That should be fun, huh? And now it’s my turn to do a short guest post and giveaway. So I’m including the covers of all the crime fiction I’ve published at this point. Plus my young adult novel, which just recently became the sole winner of the New Apple Book Award for 2015 in the young adult genre! Exciting, huh?

Invisible Me Small

On that note, until next Wednesday, if you’d like to win a copy of my first novel IDENTITY CRISIS, please send an email with the subject line “Book Giveaway” to debbi[at]debbimack[dot]com.


Now writing a crime fiction novel or even a short story can be a tricky thing. Getting the wording just right, while dealing with plot construction, red herrings, and creating interesting characters, isn’t for the faint of heart or those easily bruised by criticism.

Because, believe me, if you’re discouraged by agent rejections and writers’ group suggestions, you’re not going to love every single review you get. And once that work is out there, it is OUT there.

The quality of one’s writing is what distinguishes a professional from the amateurs.

Now, here’s a question for you … if you write a novel in GIFs, is it still a novel?


A book of GIFs called Zac’s Haunted House has been presented by the publisher online as a novel.

Now … picture this … a crime fiction novel in GIFs!


With a secondary love story!


What would MST3K make of it? 🙂


PS: I also have a short story anthology of noirish tales for your enjoyment! And I’ve released one of the short stories, “Deadly Detour”, separately.

Five Uneasy Pieces (Large - 300dpi)


And … voila! 🙂
