Bute Noir 2018

I'm excited to be making my first trip to Bute for what promises to be a great weekend. Bute Noir is in its third year with a full programme of panels and events to whet the appetite of crime fiction fans. I'll be taking a plane, train and ferry to get there for 3-5 August. Hope to see some of you on the Isle!

You buy read more about the festival and book tickets here.

Marnie Rome needs you! Dead Good Reader Awards 2018

The Dead Good Reader Awards are open for nominations and I'd love it if Marnie Rome and Noah Jake could be in the running for the Holmes and Watson Best Detective Duo Award. There's also an award with Noah's name all over it: The Wringer Award for the Character Who's Been Put Through It All. Do pop along and nominate your favourites. You could win £200 in crime books and DVDs! Nominations can be made here.

Two Crime Writers and a Microphone: new podcast

I loved chatting with Luca Veste and Steve Cavanagh for their brilliant podcast which you can listen to for free over at iTunes here. I natter on about writing homoerotic stories when I was ten, dodging active service with the Royal Navy, how likely it is that Mick Herron is an actual spy and, of course, how Snake Plissken helped me to a First Class Honours degree.

Marnie Rome is now an omnibus!

Dear readers, it's Amazon's best-kept secret, but there's a UK omnibus edition e-book of my first two books, and it's really rather ludicrously cheap. You won't find it by searching under my name, but here's a link. Do share!

Come and Find Me is published today!

Come and Find Me, my fifth book, is set free after weeks and months in torturous captivity. If you see a copy in the wild do snap it (not literally, that would be book abuse) and share it. You can of course buy it online and as an ebook.
If you can make it to Toppings in Bath for 8pm tonight there will be wine and whatnot, and me and Alison Graham being witty and possibly wise. I'd love the chance to thank some of you in person for putting up with me in the lead up to this, and for all your unstinting support the rest of the time.
If you can't make it Toppings but would like a signed copy, then do ask Toppings who will be able to help.
