I had gotten in the practice of posting about an indie author here on this blog on the first Monday of the month. I did three then in May, because of my surgery, I dropped the ball on it and didn’t have that feature. Today I have to admit that I don’t have one for you this month, either. I did try to contact a couple of indie authors through their blog “contact me” option but haven’t heard back from either. I have a list of about six names besides them so today I am sending out emails to those people to see if I can start this back up for July.
In the meantime, let me tell you about one blogger who has published a novel which I loved so much that I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for her next novel. She is Rebecca Bradley and has written Shallow Waters, a detective novel which features Hannah Robbins as the chief detective in this case. Rebecca is a former detective in Nottinghamshire where she lives. Her experience and knowledge of the police investigative in Nottinghamshire give her writing an informed and genuine feel. When I read Shallow Waters I was captured by the time I had read the first paragraph and read every page closely and quickly so I could find out if they caught the criminal or not. It is by far one of the most engaging police procedural/detective novels I have read in a long time.
I invite you to check out Rebecca’s blog and Shallow Waters. You will find Rebecca to be quite approachable and engaged with her blog followers. She is a delight to know, even if only in the blogosphere! By the way, she is currently involved in BritCrime Online Festival coming up in July in which followers will be able to interact with a number of British Crime writers. It sounds like fun!
