Deadly Waters, an Inspector Horton crime novel, chosen to be featured in indie initiative

I'm delighted to announce that the second marine mystery crime novel featuring my rugged fictional detective, Inspector Andy Horton, has been selected as one of ten titles to be featured in a special promotion in the UK throughout February aimed at promoting new and burgeoning talent.

Deadly Waters will be featured as part of an "Arts Council initiative in conjunction with Legend Press called ‘Exclusively Independent’ aimed at bringing independent bookshops and independent publishers together to feature some of the best books from new and burgeoning talented authors." Wow! Books are selected on a monthly basis by an industry panel to feature in the promotion. Participating libraries in London are Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham. Co-operating bookshops include: Housmans Bookshop, Peckham Review, Bolingbroke, City Books, Scarthin Books, Red Lion Books, The Family Bookshop and One Tree Books, and I think there might be others.

My books are already sold nationwide in a number of great independent bookshops and in Waterstones, as well as on line, of course.

This is an innovative promotion. Independent bookshops and libraries are great at promoting and introducing new authors to readers, and they play a valuable role in our communities. I'm a supporter of both, so doubly delighted to be featured.

Deadly Waters is in paperback and retails at £6.99.
