Thanks for the friend request.
Being brand new, I'm not quite sure how the place works. It'll likely take me a week or so to figure it out. Nice to have a "friend" that I can ask for help. :-)
Hi, Robin. Thanks for friending me. Love your profile pic and am a great fan of Scotland. A half Scotish friend of mine (the other half English) always talked up his Scotish father when he was traveling, since he claimed the "Scots have the best reputation in all the world - nobody abroad hates a Scot." Good to see a book dealer on Crime Space, too. My first novel (a historic spy thriller set in Eastern Europe) went out to publishers recently, so cross your fingers for me.
got to love a book dealer. But the photo next to your profile begs the question: when are you going to do something about that mustache? Oh, you have a broken leg ... too bad, so sad. And don't over look the fact that my first crime novel is scheduled for publishing on 28 February. That alone should take some of the itch out of your cast.
Hello Robin. I'm glad to have your invitation. I admire you for working as a book dealer. The world needs more people with your passion. I'll keep you updated on the present book, and in the meantime, when you have nothing else to do, see if you have a copy of the most recent UK edition of my true crime book (UK title Unsolved Crimes) from Robinson (2002).
Check out New England's hottest new crime anthology. Just came out this weekend. It's called Quarry and one of my short stories is featured. It debuted at Crimebake, New England's largest crime/mystery conference.
Thanks for the invite. When I get my book deal I'll let you know. By the way, my series takes place in a small Ontario town, based on the town of Fergus which is very Scottish in origin and still has a bit of a Scottish flavour. And to carry that theme further, one of the victims is poisoned during a scotch nosing!
Thanks so much for your interest in my book and for the welcome. I spent a great deal of time in London researching, trying to get all my details in line. I would love to hear your thoughts on the story if get time to read it. I'm half way through the second book and hope to have it complete and ready for edit by year's end. Talk to you soon.
