Writers, Festivals & Reviews - An author's life

Some Watford Writers after my talk on submissions. In other news, I received details from Harrogate Crime Festival today. And reviews are starting to come in for Dead End (out in May) - see below.

That's a very nice picture, everyone smiling.
Good luck with Harrogate.

Charles Gramlich said...

Busy busy busy!

Debs Carr said...

It looks like everyone had a wonderful time.

Leigh Russell said...

Yes, Star, the photographer, Jim Ford, did a great job. It's not easy taking a photo of so many people all at once with no one blinking, yawning - or worse!

Leigh Russell said...

Trying not to be too busy, Charles. Still taking lots of rest days, which I don't find easy!

Leigh Russell said...

Hi Debs, yes, they're a lovely writers' group, really dedicated, and the standard of the short stories in the competition I judged for them was brilliant.

Guillaume said...

Congrats! Oh and I finished Cut Short.

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks, Guillaume. I hope you enjoyed it? If so, you might consider Road Closed - still time to read it before Dead End is out in May!

Jill Kemerer said...

Fantastic reviews, Leigh!! You must be excited for the release!! Congrats!

Guillaume said...

I enjoyed it quite a lot. I will definitely buy Road Closed (and Dead End), but first I must put some order on my bookshelves and read a few titles I haven't done yet. I think your two books will be read around summertime.

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks, Guillaume. I know what you mean about having to put your bookshelves in order... I suppose that's one argument for investing in a kindle... Happy reading!

Pat said...

I know how busy you are but any time to do a post on submisssions?

E Kelly said...

Saw that you stopped by my blog. You are right when you say that I like books with independent, strong women. I am a big fan of JD Robb's series with Eve Dallas. Can't wait to check out your work, too. Thanks for stopping by!

Leigh Russell said...

Thank you for the return visit, E Kelly. Thank you for your interest in my books. I hope you enjoy them. Let me know!

Please be my guest at Madame Perry's Salon when Dead End comes out in May.

Leigh Russell said...

Thank you, JP, I'm looking forward to it.
