I bumped into a guy in my local pub the other day, and he says 'Hey, I hear you write crime fiction'. So I gave the appropriate answer and he said that he is going to download the e-version of 'A New Menace' and give it a try. Me: well chuffed.
Two days later I bump into him in our local grocer's shop, and I ask if he's found time to start the book. He replies, 'Start it? I've finished it; couldn't put it down.'
As a writer of crime thrillers, is there anything nicer to hear?
