Real Scots read The Record

Those lovely people at The Daily Record interviewed me earlier in the week, and photographed me with my sheep and cows. The result is a very good article indeed in today’s paper. If you’re in Scotland, go out and buy a copy – they’ll be worth a fortune when I’m famous. If you don’t live in Scotland, you can read the article by following the link here:

    Hi James,

    Read and enjoyed the McLean books, and just finished Benfro 3. Thanks for the pleasant hours spent reading them. I’m now metaphorically pacing the floor and waiting for the next volume in either series. Leave the sheep to get on with it, and spend more of your time writing, please!

      Thanks Magnus,

      I’m well on the way with the next McLean book, but because Penguin are now publishing them, it’s unlikely to see the light of day until 2014. Book four of the Benfro series should be out a bit sooner, as it’s under my control. I might self-publish another book I’ve got waiting in the wings – a one-off and nothing to do with either series – but it needs a bit of work first.
