#BlogTour: Bloody Scotland: Guest post by Gordon Brown @GoJaBrown @BloodyScotland @Brownlee_Donald

A little over twelve months ago, I caught sight of Bloody Scotland being mentioned over on Twitter. Although I hadn’t been reading again for very long, and I was pretty much a blogging newbie (let’s be honest – I still am), having attended and loved CrimeFest it sounded right up my street. I am lucky in that my work takes me up to Scotland quite regularly, so it wasn’t much of a stretch to combine work and the festival and make a long week of it. I am so very glad I did. By Saturday afternoon I had already booked my hotel for this year and ‘persuaded’ my sister to join me.

When I was asked if I would like to be a part of the Bloody Scotland short story collection blog tour I didn’t hesitate for a second. IMHO (for all that it is worth) Bloody Scotland has to be one of the best festivals on the UK literary festival calendar, and with some of the most iconic names in Scottish crime fiction having supplied stories for this collection, how could I even think about saying no? And believe me when I say it is only ‘some’ of Scotland’s best crime authors because when it comes to our favourite of literary genres, Scottish authors absolutely bloody rock.

#GuestPost: Amy Rogers – Author of The Han Agent

Today it’s my great pleasure to hand over the blog to Amy Rogers who has a fabulous guest post on the origins of her new novel, The Han Agent, which is released tomorrow, 5th September. Over to you Amy.

Thanks for the welcome, Jen! When I taught microbiology, I was surrounded by story ideas, and I was inspired to start writing science-themed thriller novels in the style of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook. My third release The Han Agent is about a Japanese pharmaceutical company with a history of war crimes that hires a Japanese-American scientist after she is expelled from a university for manipulating the DNA of a flu virus.

The Mayfly.jpgThe Official Book Blurb

A mutilated body discovered in the woods.
A murderous plan conceived in the past.
A reckoning seventy years in the making . . .

Guest Post: Paul Harrison, author of Revenge of the Malakim @WillandWhiting

Today it’s my great pleasure to feature a guest post from Paul Harrison, author of Revenge of the Malakim, published in February 2017 by Williams and Whiting. Before that though, here is what Paul’s book is all about.

ROMThe Official Book Blurb

It’s high summer and the streets of Bridlington East Yorkshire are awash with tourists. A serial killer is on the loose. DCI Will Scott and his team embark upon a fast paced investigation to catch a killer with a unique agenda.

As the body count rises the killer randomly moves location and the police are unwittingly drawn into a dark and sinister world where cover-ups and corruption reigns. A place where no one can truly be trusted and nothing is ever what it seems.

#BlogTour: Ice Cold Alice by C.P.Wilson (@bellshillwilson; @Bloodhoundbook)

It’s my pleasure to be one of today’s stops on the blog tour for the new thriller, Ice Cold Alice by C.P. Wilson. I have a guest post from the author to share in a moment, plus a short review of the (fabulous) book, but first of all here is what the book is about.

Alice final .jpgThe Official Book Blurb

They thought that they had all the power, until she took it from them.

A killer hunts abusive spouses, blogging about their sins post-kill. Soon the murders and the brazen journaling draws the attention of Police Scotland’s CID.

This killer works with surgical preparation, precision and skill, using a unique weapon of her own and never leaves a trace of evidence behind.

Edinburgh’s DI Kathy McGuire, nearing the end of her career, begins the hunt for the murderer as a media frenzy erupts. But McGuire might have met her match…

What has led this killer to take the law into her own hands?

Is the woman accountable really a cold-hearted killer or a desperate vigilante?
