Previously on The Amy Lane Mysteries…

With Terror 404's launch date fast approaching, here's a little reminder of what's happened in the series so far... Way back in the depths of 2013 – during the rule of the Tory-Lib Dem Coalition, in the time of the iPhone 5 – Jason Carr was released from prison after serving time for car theft. Desperate to get back on his feet in a cold, wet November, Jason took on a job as a cleaner – and entered the house of Amy Lane.

Let’s call her the Robin Hood of cyber B&E.

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

Every year, I write a post about my writing and personal progress over the past twelve months and look forward to next year's goals and challenges. For this New Year's Day, I'm going to look at some awesome things that happened in 2014 and pair them up with where I'm taking them in 2015. In 2014, I became a published author I can't shout about this enough, because it fills me with a giddy joy that I've longed for since I was a child. It's been a very steep learning curve, but the process of taking a raw manuscript and making it into a novel with the help of my fantastic editor Deb Nemeth and the rest of the Carina Press team has had such a profound influence on my writing. And then seeing my books out in the world, receiving praise and reviews - even the gut-wrenching negative ones - has been amazing. People have read my words! They paid money to...
