Lazy Sunday Service

Feels like spring here this afternoon. Two highlights of the week were the crime fiction event I hosted on Tuesday evening - an audience with Declan Burke, Gene Kerrigan and Niamh O'Connor - and my flash fiction piece, Preparing the Lure, appearing on Spinetingler. R. Thomas Brown, the editor at Spinetingler, gave a very useful editorial steer on the flash fiction piece. It was only a slight tweak to a single paragraph but it really strengthened the story. Funny how a relatively small change can make such a difference. On the review front, John Gaynard gave The Rule Book a nice review a couple of weeks ago.

My posts this week:
Shots of noir
Review of The Point by Gerard Brennan
Review of Tollesbury Times Forever by Stuart Aylis
