Exciting News!

The Toronto Chapter of Sisters in Crime is pleased to announce we are gearing up for our second anthology, The Whole She-Bang 2, mystery short stories by members of Sisters in Crime in Canada!

We are inviting submissions now with a view to publication (in print and as an e-book) in November of 2014.

Our chapter published our first anthology (see bleow) in October 2012. We sold over 600 copies, paid our authors and donated over $800 to the Children's Book Bank with our efforts. It was also thrilling not only to have established authors like Edgar Award winner Sylvia Warsh, and novelist Vicki Delany in the collection, but we provided several authors with their first publication credit. Having the anthology reviewed in the Toronto Star was a highlight, too.

Submission deadline: 11:59PM, May 11, 2014.
