#BlogTour: The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd @AmyLloydWrites @PenguinUKBooks

Today I’m delighted to be joining the blog tour for The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd. I have a guest post from Amy to share with you all in just a moment on writing her first novel. First up, lets take a look at what the book is all about.

Twenty years ago, Dennis Danson was arrested and imprisoned for the brutal murder of a young girl in Florida’s Red River County. Now he’s the subject of a true-crime documentary that’s whipping up a frenzy online to uncover the truth and free a man who has been wrongly convicted.

A thousand miles away in England, Samantha is obsessed with Dennis’s case. She exchanges letters with him, and is quickly won over by his apparent charm and kindness to her. Soon she has left her old life behind to marry him and campaign for his release.

But when the campaign is successful and Dennis is freed, Sam begins to discover new details that suggest he may not be quite so innocent after all …

#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.

#BlogTour: Guest Post – James Hazel author of The Mayfly @JamesHazelBooks @BonnierZaffre

It is my absolute pleasure today to be hosting the blog tour for the new release by James Hazel, The Mayfly. I have a guest post from James to share with you in just a moment, but first of all, here is what James’ book is all about.

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 . . .

When lawyer Charlie Priest is attacked in his own home by a man searching for information he claims Priest has, he is drawn into a web of corruption that has its roots in the last desperate days of World War Two.

When his attacker is found murdered the next day, Priest becomes a suspect and the only way to clear his name is to find out about the mysterious House of Mayfly – a secret society that people will kill for.

As Priest races to uncover the truth, can he prevent history from repeating itself?

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.
