Looking back, I can't believe how much has happened. No wonder I'm feeling tired!
Cut Short sold out for the fourth time (or was it the fifth?) and was shortlisted for the CWA Dagger, which was a real thrill. I went to Harrogate to hear the announcement and met two charmers, Ian Rankin and Mark Billingham.
Cut Short is being reprinted again, this time in B format, with a new cover which was decided on in 2010, to match the cover chosen for Dead End. When Road Closed is reprinted again, it will have a matching cover, so 2010 was the year my books were "branded" (!)
I was lucky enough to have lots of online interviews and the reviews for both books continued to be amazingly positive!
I finished Dead End in 2010 and the MS for my next book, now with my agent.
2010 saw two bestsellers, two more books written, two new covers and an award nomination. In addition, I was very happy to receive lots of invitations to appear at literary festivals, talk to writers groups and judge competitions, visit bookshops and libraries, and talk to colleges and book clubs.
2011 will doubtless be as busy but I don't see how it can be as exciting!
