Yikes! — Too Far to Fall is out in the world

Well, the day has finally arrived. After years of drafts, edits, queries, and contests, my mystery novel, Too Far to Fall, is finally out in the world.

It is so strange to see my name and ebook on Amazon and Indigo and Barnes & Noble—just like it’s a real thing that I actually did.

Too Far to Fall was long listed for the CWA Debut Dagger and shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Unpublished First Crime Novel. I hope that readers who like traditional/amateur sleuth mysteries will enjoy what they find.

A few end-of-year options

This blog has been very short on postings lately as I’ve been working on getting my crime novel—Too Far to Fall—ready for publication after it’s long and arduous journey through the wacky world of publishing. I’ll post my cover and a blurb once it’s out in the world.

In the meantime, in the next few weeks both ITV and the BBC should release their Christmas promos. A Grantchester Christmas Special has already been announced and who knows what else might be in store!

To tide you over you could check out The Night Manager on Amazon Prime, Doctor Foster on Netflix, or one of the new Australian crime dramas currently available on Acorn TV—Winter, Jack Irish, or Deep Water.

For lighter fare, and also on Acorn TV, there’s Agatha Raisin (based on the books by M.C. Beaton), and the New Zealand based The Brokenwood Mysteries.
