Interviews & Praise from One of the Greats

I have begun to give interviews about writing ROAD CLOSED. Here are links to the first ones -

http://www.crimetime.co.uk/mag/index.php/showarticle/1512 (CrimeTime) I am pleased to learn that Jeffery Deaver has been chosen to write the new James Bond story. His interview on BBC Radio this morning can be heard on iplayer. http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_8710000/8710544.stm Jeffery Deaver was kind enough to email me to say he "loved" Cut Short. Here's what he said: "CUT SHORT is a stylish, top-of-the-line crime tale, a seamless blending of psychological sophistication and gritty police procedure. And you're just plain going to love DI Geraldine Steel."

GREAT to see that you have 'made it' Leigh!
All the best for continued success with your writing. I'll look out for your book.

Hi Gladys - not sure I've 'made it' quite yet, but so far so good! You can find a schedule of my events on http://www.noexit.co.uk/features/authortour.php and my books are available on amazon.

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks, Star. Road Closed is out in the UK and will be in the bookshops soon if not there yet. I hope you like it!

Testing what happens when people leave comments as I've changed the settings...

Hi Leigh
Just ordered both your books and am looking forward to my hubby reading them to me.
I looked at your signing list. Wow, you are a busy lady. Nothing in this area (South Cumbria) but then I was told by a major publisher that they sold few books in these parts. Signings don't seem to go well either (according to a Barrow manager of what was Ottakar's - now Waterstones).
Golly, all that travelling too. You deserve to do well. When we finish each book, I'll do a review for Amazon and put it on my blog too.
Best wishes
Gladys

I loved Cut Short, as did my mother and aunt, so I'll buy them copies of Road Closed this year. Trouble was I left out one aunt, whose name is Geraldine, so I'll need to get her a copy too as they're all over here this summer and I can't leave anyone out.

Looking forward to reading it.

I saw it in a shop yesterday!

Leigh Russell said...

Hi Gladys - Thank you very much for offering to post a review of ROAD CLOSED on amazon. I really hope you like it!

Leigh Russell said...

That's fantastic, Debs. Thank you very much. And you have an aunt called Geraldine. I hope she likes the books!

Leigh Russell said...

Thank you for the comment, Helen! My parents saw Road Closed in their local Waterstones today!

Leigh Russell said...

By the way - I changed the settings here as I had a comment in Chinese. I'm sure it was a friendly comment, but I couldn't read it!

Hi Leigh
I just thought I'd check and see how you're doing, and I see Road Closed is finished, printed and on the shelves. Congratulations! I can't wait to read it, so I've ordered a copy from Amazon.

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks, Dabrah! I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think.

Pat said...

Praise indeed!
I look forward to reading the second when I have finished the almighty tome 'Life Class.'

Leigh Russell said...

Hi Pat - I hope you enjoy it.
