Consider this a book-related round-up if you will…
No Good Reason – book one in the Dark Peak crime series – has been given a release date of June 2015. I’ve been cracking on writing its sequel, and Bold Strokes accepted my proposal for that late last week. The contract is now signed and sealed, and a tentative release date of March 2016 agreed. So, while No Good Reason is coming out slightly later than I’d anticipated, book two will follow pretty hot on its heels. And no, I don’t have a title for that one yet. Because I am rubbish.
Meanwhile, Tumbledown has made it through to the finals of the 2014 Rainbow Awards, in the Lesbian Mystery/Thriller category (winners to be announced on December 8th), and recently received an excellent review over at Out in Print:
But the characters and the elements wouldn’t mean a thing without the tension of Hunter’s action scenes, which are flawless. Other thriller authors (yes, I’m looking at you Patterson and Grisham) could take lessons from Hunter when it comes to writing these babies. Twists and turns and forgotten or unconventional weaponry along with pluck and spirit keep me breathless and reading way past my bedtime. I can almost imagine Hunter as sweating and out of breath as her heroines once she writes her way out of the set-ups she conjures.
