Crash Land Press Round-up


So there’s been a ton of coverage for Crash Land since I last rounded stuff up. Here is all that guff in one place:

A cracking Author in the Spotlight interview over at my local Portobello Book Blog. I talk a bit about the next book, if you’re interested.

Two daft Antipodean ladies chew over Crash Land on their Crime Time podcast. Very funny.

Absolutely lovely review by Jordan Ogg on The Island Review, one of my favourite websites.

Quite proud to get a wee slagging in the Daily Mail, if I’m honest.
