SUMMER IS HERE and with it the holiday opportunity for book reading!
And to add a little spice into the experience I’d like to launch a competition based on my most recent publication BRUGES BLOOD. So here’s the deal. Within the book is a mysterious postcard left by Chandler’s father which contains one of the many puzzles he loved to challenge Chandler with.
For the month of July I will be offering a prize of $50 to one lucky winner, who will be drawn from an electronic hat by a friendly robot.
But first of course you have to solve the mystery :) No more clues. All you Sherlocks, Poirots and Columbos out there (Other sleuths are available) get to work. Just buy a copy of BRUGES BLOOD, Kindle or paperback, and get reading.
The puzzle will be obvious...the solution not so much. Send all of your solutions to email@example.com. I will announce the winner on August 1st and PAYPAL the winnings to you the same day.
Happy Canada Day, everyone. 2019 is half over, and there’ve been a number of developments since my last update.
First of all, I’m pleased to report that A Gentleman’s Murder won the silver for Mystery in the 2018 Foreword Indies. This makes a neat little hat trick for Inkshares, with Jacqui Castle’s The Seclusion and Juliet McDaniel’s Mr. and Mrs. American Pie also winning silver in their respective categories.
A German edition of A Gentleman’s Murder is also in the works and set to come out in December this year.
Some long-overdue paperwork was finally completed with respect to the option for the TV rights, so I think I can more comfortably say now that that’s in the works, too.
The most significant update I have to share, however, is that I have since relocated from Montreal to Calgary, a move that takes me to the other side of the continent. I’m writing this from what should be my study for the foreseeable future, once the movers deliver all my stuff.
It’s a new life. Perhaps there will be Bovril.
Until next time!
