Are you a book blogger or reviewer or some similar shit? Would you like a copy of my forthcoming novel, Hit & Run, to read or review or write about or use as loft insulation?
Well we have finished copies of the novel, just look:
If you want one and have a reasonable reason to have one (loft insulation doesn’t really count), drop me a line and I’ll get Faber to stick one in the post to you.
Here’s what it’s about:
Driving home from a party with his girlfriend and brother, all of them drunk and high on stolen pills, Billy Blackmore accidentally hits someone in the night. In a panic, they all decide to drive off. But the next day Billy wakes to find he has to cover the story for the local paper. It turns out the dead man was Edinburgh’s biggest crime lord and, as Billy struggles with what he’s done, he is sucked into a nightmare of guilt, retribution and violence.
Expect the onslaught of self-promotion to start very soon. Very soon. I’m really sorry. Gotta be done, though.
I own an independent bookshop in Ontario, Canada and also host a men’s crime fiction book club. We had good fun with Smokeheads.
Do you think Faber and Faber would post a copy to my shop?

On another note, I’d very much like to round up all the lads and have a phone chat when your new book comes out, if you’re amenable to such a thing
Please advise if you like and thanks very much.
Smokeheads was a beauty and I look forward to the next book
No problem David, I’ve passed your address on to Faber, they’ll stick it in the post to you today.
Thanks for your interest – so glad you enjoyed Smokeheads!
And yes, of course I’d be happy to have a phone chat whenever. Drop me an email (my address is on the contacts page above) and we can sort out details nearer the book’s pub date.
