What's on in February 2021 - Groundhog Day, lock down life and writing

Pauline Rowson having Groundhog DayIt feels like I'm stuck in Groundhog Day and anyone who has seen the film knows exactly what I mean - what if you had the same day to live over and over again? Lock down feels  a bit  like that. Variety is the spice of life, as they say, but someone's used it all up and forgotten to re-order it, every day can end up feeling  a tad bland. Still there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccination programme rolling out here in the UK and elsewhere around the world, so let's hope and pray we will be able to resume some of our 'normal' lives in due course, and more importantly see the suffering and tragic number of deaths decline.

I can always lose myself in the worlds of my fictional characters as I create new problems and mysteries for them to solve and I hope that my many readers can escape into the worlds of DI Andy Horton, Art Marvik and Inspector Ryga, and find some relief, entertainment and enjoyment.   In fact I'd like to thank so many of you for emailing or tweeting me to say how much the  books have meant, and mean to you, during lock down, it really is motivating and helps me to keep going.

So in February I will be working on second revisions to Inspector Andy Horton 16. I now know who done it, how, and why, decidedly helpful when it comes to second revisions and I can now put the clues in!

I'll be out and about taking my daily dose of exercise around the shores of Chichester and Langstone Harbours both of which I am fortunate to have on my doorstep so the Covid vigilantes and marshalls needn't bother stopping me! I'll be thinking through plots and looking for ideas for the next Inspector Ryga. Meanwhile Ryga number three will be published in autumn 2021.  It is set in Brixham, Devon so that is off my beat for the time being. No book signings or visits there yet.

No talks either planned for 2021 and ahead but I'm hopeful that some might be booked for later this year and for 2022. Meanwhile in February 2021 I will continue with my trip down memory lane and look at all the talks I've given during that month in the past.

This month you can also order DEAD SEA, number four in the Marvik mystery thriller series, which will be published in paperback and as an ebook and on Amazon Kindle on 15 March 2021.

I'd like to thank all my lovely readers for your support and kind words. Believe me they do help.

Stay safe and well. (Or in the words of Spock "Live long and prosper." )
