My July newsletter features lots of news on forthcoming publications, some new and some re-releases. DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Inspector Ryga number 2 is to be published in paperback, e book and audio book in November and is now available for pre-order.  We're also delighted to announce the re-release of the Marvik mystery thrillers and DI Andy Horton 13, LETHAL WAVES.

With public gatherings still banned in the UK because of Covid-19 I'm taking the opportunity on my website to look back at past talks.  Here's hoping my talks will resume in 2021.  Also in this newsletter a link to the prologue of the latest DI Andy Horton, A DEADLY WAKE and what it takes to write a novel.

Happy reading.

Read the prologue of DI Andy Horton A Deadly Wake

A Deadly Wake a DI Andy Horton MysteryThe truth behind DI Andy Horton's mother's disappearance when he was ten years old is revealed in A DEADLY WAKE number 15 in the series published in paperback, as an ebook on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Apple Books and Google Books.

The thread of DI Andy Horton's quest for the truth about Jennifer is weaved into each of the Horton crime novels while at the same time Horton has a new crime to investigate. Each novel therefore stands alone and the books don't have to be read in sequence although some readers prefer to do so.

DI Andy Horton’s investigations into the disappearance of his mother, Jennifer, over thirty years ago, has been touched upon in many of the Horton novels, in which he has unearthed some startling revelations. In this, the fifteenth in the Horton series, there are more surprises to come. In order to help the reader quickly catch up on the mystery of Jennifer’s disappearance, and to accompany Horton on his final journey in his quest to get to the truth, I have included a prologue.  I have also included a cast of characaters who are connected, in some way, with the Jennifer Horton mystery.

Published in paperback, as an ebook, and on Amazon Kindle

DI Andy Horton Lethal Waves to be re-issued in paperback, ebook and Kindle

I'm delighted to announce that DI Andy Horton mystery number thirteen, LETHAL WAVES, is being re-issued in paperback, as an e book and on Amazon Kindle on 3 August 2020 and is available to pre-order.

On his return from Guernsey, Horton is called out to investigate the death of a vagrant whose body is found under a rotting houseboat on the shores of Portsmouth.

Publishers Weekly says, "Nothing in this police procedural is as it first appears. The Harley Davidson-riding, boat-dwelling Horton is a fascinating man to get to know, and his thoughtful approach to detection is a pleasure to read."

Writing crime fiction - what does it take to write a crime novel?

Pauline RowsonMany articles on how to write a crime novel or mystery novel focus on the technicalities but few examine the emotional roller coaster that a writer will experience in the crafting of a novel. Each stage of writing a crime novel brings with it a range of different emotions. These range from excitement and frustration, to relief, doubt and fear, plus a whole lot in between. So if you experience any of these while plotting and writing your novel you are not alone!
