Credit Where Credit is Due

If you take a peek at the links on the right side of my blog & check out the people (all six) who are following this blog, it will give you an idea of the "virtual" gang that I hang with. In reality, I feel like I'm the little, wide-eyed shrimp, trying to make the team, carrying the helmets, getting my arse snapped with towels etc... In other words, paying attention, keeping my mouth shut (not really), trying to learn the ropes, and always enjoying it and having a few laughs along the way.

I don't know any of these people personally, but all of them are top notch in my book. Once a week I'll provide a few updates on what they got going on and I truly hope that if you are into crime / thriller writing or reading, you would do the same.

- I am waiting for Scottish author Donna Moore's novel "Old Dogs" to be delivered. It sounds like a good one. Check out her blog HERE

- English author Col Bury has just been signed by NY agent Nat Sobel. Like I said, I don't know Col, but his blog is way cool and he comes off as one hell of a nice guy, and this news is just fabulous. Check him out HERE

-Another English author, PD Brazill, has an awesome website and is a heck of writer. If you want the beat on the street in the crime world and also read some awesome author interviews, Click HERE

Like I said, I'll try to do this once a week, and mix it up everytime with different authors, as the three I mentioned are just the tip of the iceberg.


  1. Thanks very much for that, mate. As a Big O fan, I think you'll like Old dogs, by the way.

  2. Hey Sean, cheers for the unexpected mention - very decent of you.
    And, don't fret, as you are already part of our writing community, bud.

  3. Great call, Sean. I had Col up to ours for a few day last week and we celebrated his accomplishment "Manchseter" style.

    Paul is an awesome writer, and being still quite new to this myself, he's a writer that we can all learn something from.

    Regards, mate.

  4. Thanks for stopping by gents, I'm honored!

  5. Great call, Sean. Had Col up to ours for a few days and we celebrated "Manchester" style. He's a top bloke and deserves his success. We've know each other for 30 years or so.

    Paul's a great writer and someone who new writers, like myself (afetr a lengthy lay-off), can learn a great deal from.

    Great post!

  6. What's happening with my comments. I could have sworn I left one. It's happened on other sites as well. Well it went something like this...

    I had Col up last week for a few days and we celebrated his great news "Manchester" style. He's a great bloke with a lovely family and deserves the success!

    Paul's a great writer who new (after a lengthy layoff) writers like myself can learn a great deal from.

    Great shout, Sean.

  7. Cracking list of credits! And congratulations on Mindjacker - it sounds great!

  8. Dave & Julie- Thanks for stopping by! I'm truly honored.
