I had an amazing, crazy, fun weekend at Bloody Scotland – brilliant writers, organisers and readers. Just the best atmosphere all weekend. Feel like I missed out on catching up with so many pals, running around daft, but such a great festival. I managed seven events, from crime writing workshops to gigs, from short stories to football. Mad.
I have so much on at Bloody Scotland this weekend that if I think about it I’ll have a panic attack. Come see that! Seriously though, if you see me, bring me a sandwich or a beer, thanks.
This is published this weekend. I have a short story in there called ‘Painting the Forth Bridge’. It is nasty. Enjoy! Dx
I’m delighted to be appearing at the Durham Book Festival for the first time, appearing on Sat 14th October with the inimitable Louise Welsh. Details here.
Here I am being interviewed over at the MilanoNero website. Dinnae worry, I didn’t try to speak Italian, likes. I talked about noir cinema, Edinburgh as a backdrop, all that guff.
Hot on the heels of its release in Italy, HIT & RUN is now published in paperback in America today! Please drive safely to your local bookstore and pick up a copy, or get it online here. Cheers! Dx
I’m heading to hideous Bute for Bute Noir this weekend, cannae wait! Sixteen crime writers at various events all over Rothesay. There will be chatting and quizzing and singing and drinking and shenanigans, no doubt. See yeh there!
