As 2009 draws to a close I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to my success as a crime writer, not least the wonderful people who have bought my crime novels, or borrowed them from the libraries, and those who have been kind enough to tell me how much they have enjoyed reading or listening to them. Thank you so much.
I would certainly like to thank my publisher, Severn House, for their continued support and belief in me, so much so that they are publishing the new Inspector Andy Horton crime novel, Blood on the Sand in February 2010 (UK) and the trade paperback of Dead Man’s Wharf in the same month (UK). I believe the publication in the USA is April 2010.
I have met some interesting and lovely people during the year at my talks and book signings and I'd also like to say a big 'thank you' to all library staff both in the UK and the USA for their continued support. It is very much appreciated.
At the risk of this ending up sounding like an Oscar Award acceptance speech I'd better sign off now with my sincere wishes to you for a merry Christmas, a happy holiday and a healthy, peaceful and prosperous 2010.
P.S. This won't be my last blog post of 2009. There will be others to follow...
