Happy New Year! What's Occurring in 2012?

Hi all, and may I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.

There has been much happening in the world of Joe Hunter of late, and I'm pleased to announce that Dead Men's Harvest - Joe Hunter 6 - has been met with favourable reviews in the UK. The paperback edition of Dead Men's Harvest will go on general sale within a few days, on 5th January to be precise.

Those of you who prefer electronic books to paper these days will probably be pleased to hear that my UK publisher, Hodder and Stoughton, are due to release an anthology of six Joe Hunter short stories direct to Amazon Kindle. "Six of the Best" is now available for pre-order, but goes on general sale on 19th January 2012, so not long to wait. You can take a look here:

The next big event in the Joe Hunter calendar is the release of the seventh action-packed book in the series called "No Going Back" on 16th February. Matt will be holding a book launch on or around that date, but details have yet to be finalised.

Here's the blurb from No Going Back: 

'Jameson Walker approaches Joe Hunter when his daughter Jay and her friend Nicole go missing at a gas station in the Arizona desert while on a cross-country trek across the North American interior. He mentions that a robbery/homicide at the gas station as worrying as the girls were due to be in the vicinity at that time. Joe accepts the job of locating the girls, though not at first convinced there's much to worry about. As Joe picks up the girls' trail he discovers that other young women have also disappeared in the area, and comes across the brutish Logan family.'

'No Going Back' will be available from all major booksellers, and can also be purchased from various on-line sites.

In the USA, two Joe Hunter books hit the stands this winter. Both 'Slash and Burn' and 'Cut and Run' were released as mass market paperback originals, and are available from all places books are sold. Because of the popularity of the books, Matt has been asked to do a mini-tour of the US and on 12th January will be in Pittsburgh, on the 14th he'll be in Chicago, and lastly on the 16th in Milwaukee.

Visit Matt's blog here for updates on times and locations of each appearance.

Matt will also be appearing at venues in the UK during the first two months of this year, including Wigan library on Thursday 26th January, and Bishop Aukland Townhall, County Durham, on Thursday 28th February. Again check on Matt's blog for full details.

My former work colleagues were kind enough to get my a Kindle as my leaving present, looking forward to downloading this one, Matt.
