Another amazing day at the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival today, where the highlight for me was this evening at the Robert Galbraith (AKA JK Rowling) event. Not only was I on the front row to listen to one of my two favourite living writers being interviewed by another great writer, Val McDermid, but I also got my copy of her new Cormorant Strike novel, The Silkworm, signed by her. What a wonderful privilege. Looking forward to tomorrows events.
Talking of crime writing, here is the latest newsletter from the London Writers' Club, which has details of a crime novel workshop in London:
