Hello 2016

Happy 2016! It’s that time of year again. The one in which I tell you about the exciting things that are happening in my writing life right now, and we can anticipate them with glee together.

New Amy Lane novels
The wait is almost over! Captcha Thief, book three in The Amy Lane Mysteries, will land on 4th February. And that’s not all! The fourth book in the series Terror 404 is due for publication in August.

As these will be out in paperback (paperback!), keep your eyes peeled for bookplates and swag and giveaways as the due date nears – the newsletter and Facebook Page are always the first to know.

If you can’t wait that long, check out the Amy Lane short story Car Hacker.

CrimeFest 2016
After the success of last year’s CrimeFest, I will be returning to Bristol this May to do more panels and sign aforementioned books. I’m really excited to part of this festival again and meet so many enthusiastic authors and readers.

Mental Health and Writing
Building on my work combating mental health stigma and #psywrite, I am going to be looking more this year at how writers can look after their own mental health and how awareness of how we tick as creatures can help us create better. Watch this space!

Coming Home
I am also delighted to finally be returning to my beloved Wales. My husband and I are moving back to Cardiff early this year, so I will be languishing in Culture Cymraeg for my future writing endeavours. Happy authors make for better books.

And Much, Much More
As always, there are a number of things I can’t shout about yet, but I look forward to sharing them with you this year.

2016 is going to be a thrilling ride. What are you looking forward to this year?
