Murder is Academic

Posted on Jul 16, 2014 in Uncategorized | 6 Comments

MMurder is Academic by Christine Poulsony first novel is now available as an ebook at a much reduced price, so this would be good time to read it if you haven’t already. The whole series is now available quite cheaply.

I’ve been asked more than once if I’ll write another Cassandra novel – in fact, I had a query today – and I do sometimes think of it. I did so much enjoy writing that series. I’ve thought too of writing a short story or novella featuring Cassandra, especially for readers who have asked for a little bit more.

It is hard to know when to go on with a series. The Cassandra James mysteries never went into paperback, (until Ostara picked up Murder is Academic). It seemed time to try something a bit more ambitious. But it’s one of the great things about ebooks: the Cassandra stories need never go out of print, so there is always the possibility of adding to that select group of (highly discerning) readers who’ve liked Cassandra.

Through her I have made some lovely friends on-line, and I wouldn’t like to think I have left her behind forever.

    Love the new blog! Was it complex to build and to change over? I’d quite like a new look for mine, but the thought of all that would be involved makes me quail – I’m particularly anxious not to lose the archives, but I see that you’ve brought yours with you.

    I’d love to see more about Cassandra. I’m trying to think how I first got on to Murder is Academic – was it one of Heffers’ lists of Cambridge mysteries maybe?

      Thanks, Moira! Very glad you like it. It is taking me a little while to get to grips with it, but I have a very good web designer (who is also a good friend) who has smoothed the way.
      It probably was a Heffer’s list where you encountered me. It’s a lovely bookshop and the fiction buyer is a great supporter of new writers and of books set in Cambridge.

    Congratulations on the new blog, it looks great. I’d love to read more Cassandra too, I like academic mysteries so another story, novella or novel would be great.

      Thanks! Lovely that you have visited, Lyn. I was in Cambridge yesterday and thought how nice it would be to do something about Cassandra . . .
