1) FAST-PACED TRADITIONAL MYSTERY: Kris Calvin embraces the classic, commercial nature of the genre. She’s not shooting for literary—rather, a fast-paced traditional mystery with a smart and likeable female protagonist. 2) MAREN KANE MYSTERY SERIES: One Murder More is the first book in the Maren Kane mystery series. Kris Calvin is currently writing the second installment. 3) AUDIENCE: The core audience for this book are California-based women, thirties or older, who love serial murder mysteries (as mentioned before, Kris is working on a sequel). The Sacramento setting and lobbyist focus will also appeal to a political demographic. 4) UNDERREPRESENTED PROFESSION IN POLITICAL THRILLERS: Although the novel centers on political life in Sacramento, the focus on lobbyists (an underrepresented profession in political thrillers), and the smart and amusing internal voice of the protagonist, makes the novel unique. Having spent years on the inside in politics, Calvin draws on her own experiences to give you a front-row seat in California’s Capitol.
