“People say that Paignton turns feral after dark, but I think it’s feral all day long – you just have to know where to look…”
Brit-grit supremo Paul D. Brazill, author of the recent novella Last Year’s Man (All Due Respect), cast an eye over my latest e-book, SLUG BAIT, this week, making it one of his recommended reads of the week. If ‘vivid, lurid, lewd and crude’ sounds like your cup of crime fiction, you should probably check it out!
Meanwhile, tireless UK crime fiction blogger Colman Keane plunged head-first into the seedy world of MEAT BUBBLES & OTHER STORIES, saying ‘I’m entertained, I’m thrilled, I’m appalled, I’m amused, I’m disgusted and I’m hooked.’ It’s a tremendous review, in which Col unpicks the key themes of the book, so please check it out.
Finally, one last MEAT BUBBLES interview, before the REPETITION KILLS YOU promotional bandwagon rolls into town. This is a short Q&A on the Close To The Bone website. I discuss violent repercussions and unknown horrors: ‘Rey is a hard man – nowhere more so than in Meat Bubbles – but I don’t like the idea of an indestructible character. He is very much destructible, and every hideous thing he experiences affects his body and his mind. Watch this space to see how bad it gets.’
