Cozy mysteries are a popular fiction category at Amazon.
You know… stories about everyday people like Miss Marple (Agatha Christie books) and Jessica Fletcher (Murder, She Wrote TV show) playing amateur sleuth to figure out whodunnit.
Good, clean fun… except for the murdering. 🙂
You stand to make a lot of money and build a large following of avid readers if you can come up with cozy mystery books that push all the right buttons in your readers.
Ahh, but there’s the rub. How do you know what cozy readers expect?
I wondered about that myself, so I went and found out.
I spent many hours going through book reviews, looking at online reader forums, and checking other related sources.
A lot of what I discovered was very eye-opening. I would not want to write a cozy mystery without knowing what I learned through this research!
And I want to share it with you so you too can write great cozies that make your readers happy and anxious to buy your next book… and the next… and the next.
