We're already into the new year and hotting up for another year of writing, writing and more writing, as well as setting off on the publicity trail. One of the events I'm looking forward to is the next CRIMEFEST which is taking place in Bristol Thursday 20th until Sunday 23rd May. I've just added a link to Crimefest 2010 in the sidebar to make it easy for anyone considering attending.
For all you aspiring crime novelists out there who are at that point where they are thinking of approaching an agent, then take a look at the PITCH AN AGENT session on Thursday 20th May. It's like a 10 minute speed-dating session with a top agent where you get the opportunity to 'display your wares' and hopefully interest them enough to pick you up. It's maybe an opportunity you would otherwise miss if sending out the standard enquiry letter.
