I'll be appearing at Crimefest 2012
at the Royal Marriott Hotel, Bristol on Friday 25 May 2012 between 9am to 9.50am when I'll be on a panel with my fellow crime writers; Frances Brody, Mary Andrea Clarke, Leigh Russell and Adrian Magson, discussing Genres and Subgenres: Where Do You Fit and Why? I'm sure it will be a lively debate just like the previous years panel discussions have been. They'll also be plenty of time for questions and book signing and the chance to meet many well known crime authors from the UK and overseas.
I'm also delighted that the sixth in the DI Andy Horton crime series
, Footsteps on the Shore
has been nominated for the eDUNNIT AWARD at CrimeFest 2012. CrimeFest
is a convention for people who like to read an occasional crime novel as well as for die-hard fanatics. First organised in June 2008, CrimeFest is now one of the most popular dates in the crime fiction calendar. The annual convention draws top crime novelists, readers, editors, publishers and reviewers from around the world and gives delegates the opportunity to celebrate the genre in an informal atmosphere.
It follows the format of US conventions of interviews, panels, a Gala Dinner, and one or two surprises. CrimeFest will be presenting the eDunnit Award for the best crime ebook of 2011 at the gala dinner on 26 May 2012. The event takes place at the Royal Marriot Hotel, Bristol from 24 - 27 May 2012.
