My Kind of Mystery Challenge 1 Feb 2014 – 28 Feb 2015

My Kind of MysteryThe My Kind of Mystery challenge is being hosted by Riedel Fascination, who explains her idea:

Mystery needs no murder! Hidden passageways, ancient places, eerie phenomenon€¦ €œDan Brown€ meets Nancy Atherton! Gothic greats of the 1960s-1980s, modern releases. I am launching a reading challenge that welcomes the lot: tutorials, mystery author biographies, fiction€¦ Any form of mystery and its authors fit my all-encompassing theme.

It runs from February 1st, 2014 €“ February 28th, 2015!

The categories are:

Any format.
Any demographic

Non-adult must be published by 1990 or earlier.
Limitless length.
A short story, compilations; bring them to the table!

One thought on “My Kind of Mystery Challenge 1 Feb 2014 – 28 Feb 2015”

  1. You are rising to the highest level? Great! This was a secret portral at the main “My Kind Of Mystery” page: hidden under the original levels and also under a question mark below that, with a message about finding it. Christine in Australia did discover it! Most I’m sure wouldn’t return to the main page after signing-up but it was my way of leaving a special bit of fun there because this is a mystery theme. Merry Christmas, Margaret! Carolyn.
