So tomorrow I will be boarding a plane at that Edinburgh Airport, heading for Heathrow and then on to Los Angeles. I have a short, LA-centric book schedule, culminating in a panel appearance at this year’s Bouchercon in Long Beach. Since it all starts very soon, I probably should have let the world know a […]
So here it is, the cover reveal for Inspector McLean book 5 – Prayer for the Dead. I still can’t quite believe I’ve written five of these now…
A lot of people have been asking me when the audio version of Dead Men’s Bones would be available. All the other books have come out in this format at the same time as the paperback, but the rapid turnaround of manuscript – handed in at the beginning of January and out a scant 6 […]
August is here already. How did that happen? I should have known, of course. It usually comes right after July. That doesn’t make things any easier though. I have finished the first draft of Inspector McLean book five – Ceremony – and that is a good thing. Unfortunately it’s only the first draft. I’d hoped […]
I can’t believe it’s almost July already. I’ve been meaning to post about this for ages, but time has been so short it could get a starring role in the remake of Time Bandits. I’ve been busy writing McLean book five – still searching for a suitable title – and preparing the first three Benfro […]
It took long enough to come up with a title for the book, but almost as soon as I finally managed, my editor sent me the initial cover art. I thought it was great, and said so. I didn’t share it with the world though, as these things are often subject to change, and generally […]
I don’t think I’ve ever done a review of the year before. Mostly it’s been about tying up loose ends before saying goodbye to the old and hello to the new. But 2013 has been such a ride, I feel it needs looking back at, just to be sure it really happened. 2012 was itself […]
The end of an exhausting week for me. I’ll be workshopping (is that even a word?), reading and generally dispensing advice of dubious usefulness to all and sundry. Things begin at 1.30 PM and carry on into the dark. Details here.
This time with the redoubtable Russel D McLean. We’ll be having a chat like you’re not there, and probably reading extracts from each others books in silly voices. Come along if you’re feeling indulgent. Details here. Kick off is 7.00 PM
As if Stirling wasn’t enough, Allan Guthrie and I will be appearing in Stirling the very next day. This time talking about getting published and other stuff. Possibly Maine Coon cats. It kicks of at 7.30 PM – more details here.
