A year to the very day after I signed my first publishing contract with Bloodhound Books, I am absolutely delighted to be able to share the news with you that just this week I signed a new three book deal with them.
The first, already handed in and accepted, is the third book in my Bliss and Chandler series. It's called If Fear Wins and is due out this summer. On my list of projects to consider next is completing the sequel to Scream Blue Murder, writing the fourth Bliss and Chandler, which will heavily feature DI Bliss's past, plus a couple of stand-alone thrillers I have in mind - one with a supernatural edge. I am very much looking forward to taking two of those projects forward with Bloodhound under this new contract.
With this anniversay on the horizon and The Scent of Guilt due for publication on 17 February, I had no idea what to expect of my second year in this writing business. Then along came this amazing deal from my publishers. All I can do now is thank everybody at Bloodhound Books for their faith in my work, and hope that I can repay them and my readers with three books everyone can enjoy.
As ever, I look to improve - if not with every story, then at least with my writing. I like to think I learn something every time I sit down to write something new or edit what I have written. I look forward to continuing with this adventure, and enjoying the wild ride it has become.
Thank you all.
