It's been quite a while since I updated my news page and a lot has happened since then. I now have nine books published, three in the Dundee Crime Series, three in the Kirsty Campbell Mysteries, and two nonfiction books one of which sells well and one which doesn't! The best seller of my nonfiction books is The Nuts & Bolts of Self-Publishing which is a step-by-step guide on how to publish ebooks and paperbacks and a lot of writers have found it helpful.
As well as writing and publishing I've now taken to the road and sell my paperbacks at bookfairs, craft fairs and markets. As well as earning me some pennies it gets me out of my study to meet real live people instead of the characters in my books who are my constant companions.
Conferences and book festivals are still on my agenda and three of my favourites are the Scottish Association Of Writers conference in March, Crimefest in May and Bloody Scotland in September. These are the ones I try not to miss.
I'm still chiselling away at my new novel which is the first one in a new series. It's a historical murder mystery set in the early part of the twentieth century, 1908 to be exact, and it is a suffragette mystery series focusing on both the murder and the mystery element as well as the lives of the main characters. Hopefully you'll get to meet Martha, Ethel and Kirsty before the end of the year.
