How long does it take to write a crime novel? Pauline Rowson discusses

It's always a scary moment when I press 'send' on the keyboard and the completed MS for a new crime novel wings its way through the ether to my editor at my publisher, Severn House, it's rather like waiting for an exam result or a report from the teacher - could I have done better?  Should I have rephrased something or added or omitted something? It's also an equally nerve wracking moment ( although also joyous) when it is published, because then it is absolutely too late to change anything. 

So how long does it take me to write a crime novel? Read more by clicking on the above title link.

What's on in September

Well that's August over with, and the summer of 2014 will soon become a distant memory as the nights draw in and the temperature drops.  But the autumn (or fall depending on where you live)) is a lovely time, full of rich colours and cool enough in Britain for some invigorating walks along the coast or in the forests. I'll be doing plenty of both as I think through the plot for the DI Andy Horton crime novel I am writing, number thirteen in the series.

Here is what else is on the cards for September 2014 for me.
