True Crime Diva Book Reviews is Now Up!

Hello there and happy Sunday!I just launched the Book Reviews section of True Crime Diva. You can access it at the top menu or click on the banner below. I noticed a glitch but it has been fixed!

Here, I will review true crime, crime fiction, and mystery thrillers. I will also interview authors if given the privilege to do so.

So far, I have only one review up right now. The goal is to eventually read and review one book a week. read more

More Posts, Book Review Section Update, etc

Blog UpdateHello!

Here’s another blog update for ya! I’ve spent the last few days working on two posts that will be published Wednesday, June 29, 2016. Because I also work, I have come up with a writing/publishing schedule that fits my offline schedule. I want to be able to put more posts out there each week instead of a couple every month or so. read more

True Crime Diva Update

As you may know, I am currently on hiatus from this blog to focus on other things. You may also know that from time to time, I MUST take a break from writing because of the subject matter. And you also may know that I struggle with keeping this blog from time to time as well. I’m so over that.

This break has helped me reflect on my life – online and offline – as well as the future of this blog. Stepping away has done wonders for me! As tempted as I was to let go of truecrimediva.com, I just can’t. I’ve had this blog for 6 years! But in those 6 years, I have endured a lot in my personal life. The worst being when I became a parent of a missing child. I’ve never really talked about it on here because it was the WORST time of my life to date. Thankfully, my child returned home, but the whole experience caused me grief, confusion, anger, and a hell of a lot more.  I went from writing about missing children to being the parent of one. I saw things from that point of view, and let me tell you, it changes you. I found it very hard to put any effort into this blog because of the subject matter and what I went through with my own child. I lost all interest in this blog. read more

TrueCrimeDiva.com on Hiatus

Dear Readers:

I am taking a hiatus from writing in this blog. I have not posted in almost a month and do not have the time to write any new posts right now. My life is busier than normal right now, plus I have gone through some health problems recently (nothing serious, thankfully).

I have disabled commenting on posts during the hiatus. I moderate them, and I am not going to be able to do so during the break. read more

Site Update for November 2015

I apologize for not posting in over a month. I took a break from writing and then had an emergency situation involving my daughter, so I was offline for a while.

I’m back and will begin writing more posts very soon.

It seems like every time I want to write, write, and write, life gets in the way. Oh, well, that IS life, I guess.

Took a month-long break

But I will be writing again soon. I stepped away for personal reasons but am now ready to get back to this blog. Sometimes, I just need a break, so don’t be surprised if you see my absence again. Writing about what I write about is depressing and can really mess with my emotions. Stepping away helps me get back to the norm.

I apologize for doing this but it’s a necessary evil. read more

Going Back to the Old Way

I’ve decided to go back to writing the way I used to in this blog. Meaning, I will write about the case, then give my opinion (not all the time) at the end of the post, and being brutally honest when needed.

It’s ridiculous to write two separate posts – one on the case, and one with my thoughts on the case. And it’s ridiculous for anyone to come here moaning and groaning about it when they OBVIOUSLY can go elsewhere. read more
