Then two come along at once ...
Blimey chums! Just as I'm getting over the excitement of making he shortlist for the DEAD GOOD READERS AWARDS 2018, I now discover that A MURDER TO DIE FOR - prequel to THE DIABOLICAL CLUB - has made the longlist for the GUARDIAN's NOT THE BOOKER Prize!
So now I have to ask for votes.
If you were a subscriber to 'Murder' (and I suspect that most of you were) then YOU made the book happen. It was your belief in me and the book, and YOUR kind pledges that got 'Murder' into the shops. So can you now perhaps find five minutes of your life to visit the Guardian's site and vote? Just click hereI
I can't petend that they make it easy for you! You have to create a log in, vote for two books on the longlist and write a short review for one of them. Okay, MINE.
But surely you'd like to see a book that YOU made happen, that has YOUR name in the back, make the shortlist? Maybe even win? And, as someone who's supported a crowdfunding model, you have more patience than readers of some of the other books on the list. You're a patron. You're a philanthropist. You're dead bloody gorgeous.
So, please consider voting for A MURDER TO DIE FOR. Five minutes is all it takes. Let's show the world the power of YOU.
