Hello, gentle reader!
It’s been a good long while since we spoke. In that time, I’ve missed you a lot.
I wanted to let you know about my new project: the All Opinions Her Own newsletter. Focusing on events of the day as well as criticism, I’m sure you’ll still find your fix of macabre media reviews and much more. Content from True Crime Librarian may reappear on the Substack from time to time.
