Where am I now?
I have however been busy elsewhere. Several videos are already available to view on my brand new youtube author channel. You can see and hear me talk about a number of topics including How to write a book, How to get published, The importance of research, Why we love crime fiction - and other related subjects. There are also readings from Cut Short and Road Closed. A reading from Dead End is uploading onto my computer as I type this.
If (a deceptive word that looks insignificant but conveys a huge meaning)... If I can manage to upload the uploaded upload on to my author channel you'll be able to see it. (I hope you know what I'm talking about here. I find all this technology something of a challenge! Showing my age - or my limited intelligence - or both...)
Apart from filming for the author channel (which it seems everyone has to have these days) there is facebook, twitter, linkedin and I can't remember what else I try to keep abreast of.
Besides the online profile, I've been active with my research. I think I've already mentioned the maggots... enough said!... there's also a visit to a local police station, and a police HQ, in the pipeline, plus a visit to a prison...
AND OF COURSE I'm still writing! Exciting news to follow very soon... !
In the meantime, the link to my author channel is http://youtube.com/leighrussellauthor - I hope you find something there to interest you.

Your own You tube channel! how cool. I'll check it out.
Not only my own channel, but I managed to upload a video someone sent me all by myself! How's that for a minor miracle? The most popular recent video is the one entitled 'How to get published' - no surprises there! But it's hopefully useful; I try to give practical tips.
And yes, Charles, it is cool - part from my face... just as well I'm promoting my books not my looks!!
'part' should be 'apart' ...
That is a great marketing idea and you did it very well.
I will watch your youtube channel eagerly. And that's some really nice visits planned ahead. I have been wanting to visit the Sûreté du Québec's headquarters for ages, I guess I should write a crime novel and they might invite me.
As long as I get out again, Guillaume! A lot of paperwork to get in though...
