Polari Shortlist Announced

The shortlist for The Polari First Book Prize 2013 was announced on Wednesday 11th September at the Polari Literary Salon at the Southbank Centre and I was thrilled to find that The Murder Wall made the list. Hooray!

Speaking on behalf of the judges, Literary critic Suzi Feay said: “From such a strong longlist, it was difficult to narrow down the choices to the final five ... these are books to dazzle, amuse and beguile.”

The winner will be announced at Polari in the Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre on Wednesday, November 13th. Wish me luck!

US cover.


As you know, the first three books in the Kate Daniels series have been acquired by Witness Impulse, an imprint of William Morrow/Harper Collins in the US.

I'd like to share my US cover of The Murder Wall with you. I think the designer has done a great job.

Monument to Murder 

 

Hooray! This is the best birthday present ever!

Due to demand, a little hard work from me and a lot from the whole of the Pan Macmillan team, the publication of Kate Daniels (4) MONUMENT TO MURDER has been brought forward to 21st November 2013!

I think the cover looks absolutely stunning. I'd be really grateful if you could share this news as widely as possible.
