If anyone's near York on the 6th June I'm taking part in the Harrogate International Festival's Crime on Tour road show, introduced by Peter Robinson and featuring yours truly and debut novelist David Mark.

Tickets are a fiver and no clash with England's fixtures at Euro 2012. What could be better.

DEITY is out there and even in limited edition hardback it is getting 5-star reviews on Amazon. My publisher is also running a youtube advertising campaign. See for a taste of the novel's themes.

For all of you who don't read hardbacks, the paperback is out on June 21st followed by an extensive campaign of book signings and festival appearances. See my new website for details.

Book signings

Further to yesterday's news, I have arranged to be at two Waterstones stores to sign copies of the paperback of DEITY after its release. I will be in the Derby store on Saturday June 23rd and at the branch in the Trafford Centre, Manchester on June 30th. Both from 10.00am until late afternoon. See you there hopefully.

New Year, New Novel

Happy New Year to all my readers. The cover of the new DI Brook thriller, DEITY, is on the front of the website. I hope you like it as much as I do. I've received a definitive date for the release of DEITY. The hardback will be available from April 26th, presumably the Kindle version will be out at the same time. However, the paperback is released on June 21st, brought forward from August because my good friends at Waterstones have decided to include DEITY in their summer promotion. Great news. So you can be reading a copy of the novel on your sunbed in whatever version you prefer.

I'm excited about DEITY because everyone at Headline who's read it was thrilled with it and very enthusiastic about its prospects.

Oh joy and desolation. My new novel DEITY is in the can and after two weeks pushing myself to the brink of heart failure and insanity it's winging its way to the publisher. Now I've got my life back, as usual I don't know what to do with it. I suppose I could start the next one. Ideas anyone?

Deadline day approaches and the frenzy to add value to the manuscript will soon reach fever pitch. As soon as the test series is finished.
