Win a signed copy of 'Snakehead' by Peter May

Ha, that got your attention didn't it!!!

Novel Journey, one of Writer's Digest 101 Most Valuable Websites for Writers, is carrying an interview with my Dad today. The best comment on the blog will win a free signed copy of 'Snakehead' but you had better be quick because I'm not sure how long the competition will be running for. (If you don't win you can always buy a copy here)

In other Peter May writely news

*warning: shameless plug coming up*

"The Blackhouse", a dark, psychological thriller set on a remote Scottish island, is being published in France in October under the title "L'île des chasseurs des oiseaux". (It has not been published in English yet....yep, so a book written in English about a Gaelic-speaking community will make its first published appearance in French.....you know it makes sense!!?!!)

"Virtually Dead", a thriller set in the virtual world, Second Life, will be published in the States in January. (He actually established a detective agency in Second Life in order to do research for the book. This is a picture of his avatar Flick)

In February, the fifth China Thriller, "The Runner", will make its debut appearance in the States. (You can buy past ones here)

The fourth Enzo Files book, "Freeze Frame", will be published in the US in April. This is the fourth in a series about a Scotsman in France solving French cold cases and you can buy the past ones here. (oh, and the entire series has just been bought by the major German publisher, Kindler...so if your in Germany please keep a look out for them!!)

  14. Ann - LOL...I think perhaps you might have to go and see someone about that!!!

    Silver - Welcome and thanks for leaving a comment (will pop over to yours directly!!).

    Ohhh, there is nothing worse than being bombarded with rubbish....I got loads of e-mails offering me loans, viagra or breast enlargements which, to me, seemed a rather odd combination.
