From its lurid, over-the-top prologue to its quirky addendum, Frame Shop is a mystery thriller filled with violence, humor, and occasional writing advice. It's the perfect tale for avid readers, authors, NaNoWriMo participants, fledgling writers, and writers' group participants.

Harold J. Ackerman thinks his latest cat mystery proves he is the best writer in the Pleasant Meadows Writers’ Guild and Critiquing Society, not that the motley assortment of poets, poseurs, and wannabe writers in the PMWGCS provides much competition. But then Gantry Ellis, the NYT best-selling author of the Danger McAdams mystery thrillers, joins the group and wows everyone. Still, Harold hopes to leverage his connection to the famous author into a big break, agreeing to help his mentor with some crime research between contentious critique sessions. Soon, though, his efforts lead to murder ... and then more murder.

Frame Shop delivers fun, intrigue, and variety to its readers, whether they are long-time mystery fans or aspiring writers attracted by its writers' group setting.

Says B.R. Robb, author of both River Ghosts and An Assassinated Man: "Well now - that was a whole lot of fun! Donald J. Bingle's Frame Shop is a book every reader needs now and then, like the tasty dessert of an easy-reading yet intelligent serio-comedy after forcing down the dry, heavy tome we were supposed to like."

Frame Shop is a 42,000 word mystery thriller set in a writers' group. Unlike a traditional who-dunnit, Frame Shop mixes violence, humor, and occasional writing advice in a format that will keep mystery lovers, aspiring authors, NaNoWriMo participants, and established writers turning the pages. Donald J. Bingle is an oft-published author of books (The Love-Haight Case Files; Net Impact; GREENSWORD; Forced Conversion), novellas, and shorter stories in the mystery, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, horror, steampunk, romance, comedy, and memoir genres, as well as a frequent panelist and author of articles on writing and writers' groups. He is a full member of the International Thriller Writers, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Horror Writers Association, International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, GenCon Writer's Symposium, and Origins Game Fair Library.
