Today I am delighted to be able to announce that Bloodhound Books has published a digital boxset of the three Fen Murder Mysteries it has released throughout this year: The Sandringham Mystery, The Canal Murders and The Heritage Murders.
I’m also very fortunate that Jamie Harvie-Watt, of Supadu, has created a trailer for the books:
Bloodhound is suggesting that the boxset would make a nice Christmas present, or at least a stocking filler. If some of my readers agree, I could not be more proud!
It’s impossible, of course, for me to be able to sign ebooks; but I do have a boxset to give away. If you’re interested in winning it, please answer the following question by sending your reply and your email address to:
The question is:
What is the full name of the [anti]-hero who features in both The Sandringham Mystery and The Heritage Murders?
I look forward to receiving your replies. The winner will be announced on this blog on 24th December 2022.
Good luck! And may I take the opportunity to wish you a very Happy Christmas!
My blog tour is more than half way through now. I’d like to thank all the bloggers and everyone who has read their posts and sent comments. Both the reviews and the comments have been delightful – I am hugely appreciative and grateful. Thank you!
I’m now looking forward to the last three posts. The tour finishes on 30th November – a fitting date, as winter starts ‘officially’ the next day. I’m sure the generous and perspicacious posts will encourage more readers to snuggle down with DI Yates in the cold, dark evenings!
Special thanks to Anne Cater, who pulled the whole thing together. I have loved working with her – she is down-to-earth, determined and efficient and she has a fine sense of humour. If you are looking for someone to organise a blog tour, I wholeheartedly recommend her.
The Heritage Murders, the third DI Yates novel to be published by Bloodhound Books this year, came out yesterday. The others, The Sandringham Mystery and The Canal Murders, were published in April and July respectively.
The novels have attracted a great deal of interest and I am hugely grateful to all my readers and to Bloodhound for producing and promoting them so magnificently. Nearer to Christmas, they will also be on sale as a boxed set. For the moment, it seems appropriate to me that The Heritage Murders should appear right at the start of the autumn. Soon the nights will be drawing in and books will become an even larger part of readers’ lives than at other times of the year.
As readers of this blog will know, I rarely use it to promote my own books. I shrink naturally from boosting myself and I am much more comfortable in writing about the work of other authors or interesting encounters I have had with other people or unusual places I have visited. However, now I have a new publisher, it is important for me to find a wider audience and to attract some new social media friends (those I have already made have been hugely supportive of both my books and my blog) in the UK and America and other English-speaking countries. I visited New York in July and have made a start!
If you are a blogger based in the US or UK and would like to review one of my books or perhaps to invite me to write a guest article for your blog – or, if you are an author, review one of your books – I should be delighted to hear from you. Similarly, I am very happy to write articles for booksellers and librarians, magazines and newspapers. If I can be of help to you by entertaining your existing readers or by extending your reach, just let me know!
