A combination of post-holiday catch ups and a very busy week in the day job means I’m a little late celebrating the start of Crime Reading Month. Anyway, this weekend I put aside my reading pile and allocated three new books to read:
– But for the Grace of God by Paul Grzegorzek
– Blood Guilt by Ben Cheetham
– Next to Die by Neil White
These are all authors I haven’t tried before. It’s doubtful that I’ll finish them this month, but at least it’s a start.
In celebration of crime reading month for my own books, this forthcoming week I have an exciting schedule of events arranged:
– On Wednesday afternoon I’m going to be talking about how we are celebrating National Crime Reading Month in Northamptonshire on the John Griff Show on BBC Radio Northampton with fellow author and friend, Glyn Timmins.
– On Saturday morning I’m going to be chatting with Tony and Julie on BBC Radio Leicester about The Truth Will Out.
– On Saturday afternoon I’m doing a signing (and possibly a reading too) at the wonderful Kibworth bookshop.
Do join me/listen in if you are able.
Finally, I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the Amazon promotion for The Truth Will Out. It currently sits at number three in police procedurals and 103 on Kindle overall! I never thought the tag ‘bestseller’ would ever be attached to one of my books. It’s such a wonderful feeling and I’m so grateful to everyone for downloading and reading. I’m not sure if we’ll make that elusive ‘Kindle Top 100’, it’s a tough nut to crack, but the promotion continues until the 15th of June so we’ll see.
Are you embracing crime reading month? If so, I’d love to hear what you are reading and, if you are in the UK, whether you are attending any events. Contact me on Twitter, Facebook or message me here. Details of events in your own area can be found on the Crime Reading Month website.
