You wait a month for a blogpost and then land two in 24 hours. This one's an update, an informerical, a do-list, a coming soon, and just to keep in the mix a 'note-to-self' that we are just short of two months from the off. Frank's Wild Years is published on 19th March.
To go alongside what appears to be a busy spring for Brit crime publishers Caffeine Nights - quite simply the hippest indie on the block - comes a serious update for the website and it's right... Here. (If the screen moves a bit sharpish, there's a pause button at the foot of the page.)
Having booked in a spring and summer tour of northern Waterstones, starting with a launch evening and reading at Sheffield branch on 21st March, I'll be filling in the gaps over the next few weeks. Heading south, London bound. So if anyone knows of any bookshops, potential readings, reader groups, arts festivals, book clubs, whist drives, or any other Polly Cox's party that might fancy a reading and a chat about crime fiction, Brit-noir or the merits of old Stanley Baker movies, feel free to get in touch.
So far, this is how we roll, all Waterstones unless otherwise stated:
Book launch - Sheffield, Orchard Square 21st March (evening)
Grimsby - 24th March
Hull - 31st March
Cleethorpes Library - 12th April (evening with Nick Quantrill)
York - 14th April
Harrogate - 28th April
Doncaster - 12th May
Leeds - 19th May
Bradford - 2nd June
