Today's the day that A Murder To Die For goes on general sale.
And I just wanted to say a huge, massive thank you, thank you, thank you for making this happen.
This book is very important for me. Not only is it the fulfilment of a long-held dream to see one of my novels in print, it's also meant that my late father finally got some of his unfinished novel into print too. As you know, I've incorporated a few paragraphs from Dad's book in mine. It's a joy to see his words on the printed page.
Publication does mean that these updates will be fewer now as I transfer my time and effort into getting the sequel The Diabolical Club, funded. If you've enjoyed A Murder To Die For, and you can afford it, please consider supporting the new book. And sooner, rather than later. As I explained n a previous update, 'Murder' took just a little too long to fund with the result that we missed the window to publish in Spring 2017 (the time of year when new paperbacks have the best chance of selling) and had to wait a whole frustrating extra year to catch the right time again. 'Diabolical' is already at 23% in just three weeks so I'm hopeful we can get it funded much more quickly and get the sequel out this time next year. Pledge HERE if you can.
There will be an update soon when I will reveal the name of the famous actor who's going to be reading the audiobook of 'Murder'. And I'll keep you posted of events I'm speaking at in case I'm somewhere near you and we can say hello. Plus, I'm still discussing TV adaptations with several production companies. News of that as and when I get a firm yes.
In the meantime, thank you all once again, from the deepest bowels of my heart, for making this book a reality. And if you enjoyed it (or even if you didn't!) please leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads and other review sites. Every single review helps to promote an author's work.

And on that note, toodle-pip!
I love you all.
Yes, even you.
