There’s something about cold cases that really pulls at you. We humans don’t like unsolved mysteries. And the longer they remain unsolved, the more frustrating they get.

I think that’s why we so love cold-case mystery novels. The cases get solved.

And one of the best writers at cold-case mysteries is Dean Wesley Smith. Just ask the many fans of his bestselling Cold Poker Gang Mystery series.

We haven’t had a new mystery from Dean in a bit, but that’s all about to change thanks to our latest Kickstarter featuring not only a new novel but also a new collection!

And not only can you get Case Card, the new novel, and Action, the new collection, in ebook and trade paperback but we are also offering limited hardcovers signed by Dean in Las Vegas, and they can be personalized if you’d like.

Talk about feeling like you’re right there where the action takes place!

And if you’re a writer and you really want to get in on the action, we have two incredible special Kickstarter-exclusive workshops on writing mysteries.

In Murder Most Cold, writers will learn the techniques that go into creating and writing cold case mysteries. And in Murder Most Modern, writers will learn not only how to write and create mystery plots using the modern techniques of crime labs, but also how and why and when detectives use those techniques.

We’ve already hit two stretch goals and are well on our way to the third, so be sure to check out all the free reading and learning you can get in addition to whatever reward you choose.

There’s no mystery about what you need to do next.
