ThrillerFest and Invisible Dead Reviews

July 19, 2017

I'm back from ThrillerFest, which was a hell of a lot of fun. Thanks to D.P. Lyle and Kim Howe for inviting me to teach a class on character at CraftFest. Kim and Adam Hamdy are my fellow authors at Quercus USA, and the conference presented the perfect chance to get to meet them. The Quercus team are as cool and enthusiastic in real life as I hoped. Nathaniel, Amelia, Amanda and Elyse were terrific to hang out with. I got to meet Walter Mosley, David Morrell, Peter James, and I had a great but brief chat with John Lescroart, about focusing on writing instead of publishing. After a week of business, it was reassurance that what matters in the end is the work itself, rather than the deal.

I got to stay at the Barclay, where Hemingway wrote From Here to Eternity, which was also cool.

Reviews for INVISIBLE DEAD are still coming in, and on the whole are very complimentary. David Nemeth's review really gets the book. Here's a link.

The Quercus team shared with me their proposed cover for CUT YOU DOWN, and I like it a lot. I'll reveal it here soon.
