There are no events currently scheduled in the US. But soon…
Thanks to all those US readers who shelled out to buy Their Little Secret when it came out earlier this year in hardback. On August 18th, 2020, it’s gorgeous paperback cousin will hit the bookshops (physical and online). No pressure, but I need a new hat and I know where you live, so RUSH out and buy one. Or borrow one. Steal one if you absolutely have to.* As if that shameless plea for your patronage were not enough, the BRAND NEW Tom Thorne novel, my TWENTIETH book, will be published later in the summer by Grove Atlantic. It’s one I’m hugely excited about, not just because of the significant anniversary, but because it’s a prequel to my debut novel, Sleepyhead. I can’t reveal the title of the new book just yet, but a cover and title reveal are imminent.
The Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers – the rawking beat-combo featuring myself, Val McDermid, Stuart Neville, Chris Brookmyre, Doug Johnstone and Luca Veste – will be continuing to play while British concert-goers shake their booty/heads in disbelief, at venues up and down the land. Following our fantasy-fulfilling appearance at Glastonbury in June, we have been working on some new songs to murder and in 2020 we will be doing so in Milton Keynes, Stroud, Basingstoke, Edinburgh, Derby and many other discerning towns and cities in the UK. Come on down and jump around.
As per usual, I will spend a good deal of next year pimping all manner of stuff – gobbing off at any opportunity at whichever bookshop, festival or street-corner will have me. Though there are no US dates currently in the diary, there’s every chance I will be returning to Canada (that’s nearby, right?) for some events before the end of next year. You can also sign up to receive my regular-ish newsletter which always has lots more information, lovely pictures and some cheap jokes. I don’t send them out nearly as often as I should, but the next one’s only just gone out, so I’m feeling extremely virtuous.
OK, that’s quite enough yapping. I’ve got a new book to write.
