Close but Not Quite!

Ah well, A Murder To Die For didn't win at the Dead Good Readers Awards in Harrogate this year. But it was shortlisted and was a runner-up. And I'm happy to take that. It was pretty humbling to have been nominated in the first place for a first novel. And, to be honest, it would have been a minor miracle if I had won, considering the well-publicised and bestselling contenders that I was up against. Worthy winners all. I'm proud to have been considered alongside them.

But now it's back to reality and the push to get the sequel The Diabolical Club funded. We're over the halfway mark so we're on the downward slope ... we just need a bit of a push. Trying to pull in the pledgers during the Sumer is always tricky as there are so many other things going on - Summer holidays and a house full of kids chief among them - but I'll keep the pressure on :)

Who knows? The Dead Good Readers Awards again next year? :D

Sorry to read this but glad you’re moving on. If it’s any consolation I also bought the paperback version of A Murder To Die For. Looking forward to reading it!

I lent my copy of A Murder to Die For to my mum, and she returned it yesterday saying how much she enjoyed it. Looking forward to the sequel!
