First this week, a quick reminder that I’ll be signing copies of Blood Law at the Norwich branch of Waterstones (Castle Street) on Saturday 15th August at 12 noon. If you’re in the area, please come along to grab a personalised copy of what’s sure to be one of the summer’s most action-packed reads! The last time I had a signing in my hometown the support from the local populace was humbling, so fingers crossed this one goes just as well.
On the publicity front, I appeared in an article in the Eastern Evening News last week. The article appeared in the employment section of the paper and focussed on people that have made career changes (something that’s becoming increasingly common in the modern world), and it gave me a good opportunity to give Blood Law a few more plugs. If you’d like to read it, follow this link:
I’d also like to draw your attention to the good people over at the Eurocrime website, who are currently running a competition in which five copies of Blood Law are up for grabs. If you’d like to enter, follow this link then scroll down:
And finally, some news of a possible music/books tie-in. Having posted my review of the Sonisphere Festival on this website last week, I then posted it on a number of other sites where I figured it might be of interest, one of them being the official forums for the Festival itself. A freelance journalist that writes a lot of excellent copy for the Sonisphere site then got in touch with me, and we’re planning to do something together in the coming weeks. I’m really hoping that this comes off, as it will bring together my two great loves of crime fiction and rock music. Stay posted for further news.
