The TV Detective

The first draft of the new book is done.  Yeah!

It's called The TV Detective, and is the story of how Dan and Adam met and began working together.  It's a reworking of my first fumbling attempts at writing a book, which led to A Popular Murder.  But don't worry if you've read that - the new version is very different.

And better - or at least I hope so!

It's been a real pleasure to write.  There's something curiously entertaining about going right back to the start and meeting all the characters for the first time.  It's almost like time travelling - to a school reunion, being the age you were then, but knowing what you know now.

And I can hardly believe I just wrote that sentence.  Maybe it's because it's a Friday?!

Anyway, back to the point.  The new book's now with the editors.  Given a couple of read throughs and final amendments, most of which I can do when I get some time off over Xmas, all should be ready for publication at the start of February.
