Crime Fiction News Break

mikrofonTo my shame, I’ve only just discovered that Margot Kinberg puts out regular monthly crime fiction news podcasts on her own YouTube channel. For those of you who don’t know her, Margot is something of a specialist in crime fiction with an impressive, even encyclopaedic knowledge of the genre – and she also writes murder mystery books in her spare time.

The latest installment of Crime Fiction News Break includes details of recent winners of the well known Golden Dagger awards, information about Scandi Noir, and a nice ‘plug’ for my own forthcoming book, ‘Gravy Train’. I’m honoured to have been mentioned in such great company.

To hear Margot’s November podcast for yourselves, head to YouTube. And don’t forget to check out her previous broadcasts which are full of interesting nuggets about the world of crime fiction.

Podcast!

Shure_mikrofon_55SThanks to an invitation from Eric Beetner and the nice folk at Writer Types, I have suddenly become Tech Girl.

Well, not exactly, but after much battling with software and microphones, I did manage to record two minutes of myself talking about the locations in my upcoming novel ‘Gravy Train’, which has now been included in Writer Types’ latest podcast.

You can find the podcast here – and don’t worry, it’s not just me waffling on, but includes loads of other cool stuff too including fellow debut novelists Aimee Fix and Michael Pool, plus music, plus author interviews, plus… well, head over there and you can see for yourselves!

In my case I’m talking about Birmingham’s canal network, which is a real hidden gem of the city and provides a major part of the backdrop for ‘Gravy Train’.

I’ve never done this recording/podcast stuff before, so I’m oddly proud of the result!
