Who are we and why are we here?

Alison Gaylin, Karen Olson, Lori Armstrong and Jeff Shelby met at the 2005 Bouchercon on an author panel aptly entitled, "First Time's the Thrill." After a few days of hanging around together, swapping war stories and knocking back drinks at the bar, they reasoned that there weren't enough blogs in the world and decided to create their own. They hope that their perspectives as rookies in the publishing business will provide some insight and information to aspiring authors. Or provide a few laughs for their friends.
