For all you crime fiction writers, Pegasus Books has created Pegasus Crime, a new imprint that will publish crime fiction, mystery novels, police procedurals, espionage thriller and paranormal suspense, according to Publishers Weekly.
Pegasus already publishes history, philosophy, memoirs, literary fiction and noir thrillers. The company will debut its crime fiction line in April with a translation of The Preacher by Swedish writer Camilla Lackberg, who wrote The Ice Princess, an international bestseller. Holly Luhning's gothic thriller Quiver is next, followed by Call Me Princess by Danish writer Sara Blaedel.
The plan is to publish twelve titles a year.
If it'll be awhile before you're ready to submit your crime novel, consider sending something shorter to this new journal, which sent me the following informaiton:
The editors of Construction, an online journal prepared to launch this spring, are calling for submissions. Construction was conceived in Brooklyn and South Korea in October 2010 by four graduates of The City College of New York creative writing MFA program, and seeks to use art, fiction, poetry, essays, interviews, and book reviews to create and support a cross-cultural community.
Please submit a story, 5-7 poems, or a personal essay to firstname.lastname@example.org by attaching it as a .doc or .pdf file. We strongly encourage works in translation, but please indicate if it is a translation in your submission, and confirm that you have obtained the rights to translate/publish the piece. If you are submitting art or photography, please send in a jpeg file. For journalistic essays, interviews, or book reviews, please email a query letter.
