WE'VE GOT A NAME -- WE'VE GOT A NAME!

For the past four years, this blog has been only known as the Sisters In Crime blog. Period.

Well, things have been changing round the blog -- as we hope you've noticed -- and if you'll look above this post, you'll see we now have a blog banner that includes our new name:  SinC into the Depths of  Mystery -- and that's what we hope will happen.  We intend to delve into the mystery genre -- the nuts and bolts, what makes a good read, introduce you to some of our members, and hopefully educate our readers about the publishing industry and the place women have in it.

So, what do you think about the name, the banner, and the changes so far?

We'd love to hear from you!

I like it. "SinC into the depths of Mystery" associates the name "SinC" with mystery and also provides the delicious feel of reading the genre. Well done. I wish I'd had time to volunteer and help transform the blog, but my WIP, blogging, interviewing and writing shorts is too much to add to. You've done a wonderful job. Thanks so much. We need to keep the SinC blog.

I love the name and the banner.

Grace Topping said...

The new blog appearance is terrific. I would like to make one suggestion -- not centering the text would make it easier to read. The content is great -- only the centered text that I find hard to read.

Keep up the great work on the blog.

Norma Huss said...

Love that banner!

Lelia Taylor said...

Much more enticing and I like the direction this blog is going in. Great new look, too!

Lorraine_Bartlett said...

Grace, the centered text only appears on SOME browsers. (Like AOL.) It looks perfectly fine on other browsers (like Firefox) ... or at least that's been my experience. Believe me, I've done everything I can to get get rid of it, and sometimes it works ... but more often it doesn't. It's very frustrating.

Margo said...

The name is perfect! I missed the previous blog, so I can't compare, but I really like the setup and content of this one. Great information. Thanks, Margo

Hi, Margo. Same blog . . . only different. We're broadening our horizons and will endeavor to deliver fresh content at least five days a week, so check in every weekday to see what's going on with Sisters In Crime.
