A Murder Of Crows and Beyond...

Friday, 6 April 2018

Dear Readers,

It's been quite some time since I last updated you with what's been going on, so please accept my apologies. Suffice to say, the publishing world has been keeping me very busy indeed!

First of all, I had an amazing time at the Bloody Scotland festival and have since also appeared at the Aye Write! festival, as well as making numerous other public appearances. I have great pleasure in announcing that I'll be making my Newcastle Noir debut on Saturday 5th May as part of the New Voices in Tartan Noir panel. Tickets are now available. This is the link HERE.

I will also be launching a monthly newsletter later this year. Each person who subscribes will receive exclusive previews and updates and... a FREE short story. (The story will be sent to your inbox later this year, alongside the first newsletter.) But you can subscribe now, so please follow this link and have a look. Click HERE. 

A Murder Of Crows is continuing to sell very well. It is now one of Unbound's biggest selling novels. It recently went into the top spot in various sub genre charts on Amazon Kindle and it went to No.1 in the Scottish Crime Charts - for the 2nd time! It also entered the top 10 in the mainstream charts in Canada, which was a really lovely surprise. 

As for my writing - in order to bridge the gap between Books One and Two I have a novelette coming out later this year - and my second full length novel is making good progress. I will be providing updates, exclusives and freebies in the newsletter and this will be the main point of call for any future announcements. 

Thank you for your continued support.
