Been very busy recently putting the finishing touches to book five and getting the plot of book six ironed out then tangling it all back up again.
The blogs on 'Murder is Everywhere' are going very well indeed. The last one was about Crufts and those silly dogs that appear - hairy little fuzz balls.
As the joke says, you give it a treat to work out what end to kick. They are a great team on that blog site- you might think that the Clyde can look a bit manky at times but that is nothing to floats down some of the rivers in China- see blog by the 'other Lisa.'
my fellow bloggers are
Yrsa Sigurdardottir (Iceland)
Cara Black (France and elsewhere)
Michael Stanley (South Africa or wherever they may be)
And the other Lisa .. Lisa Brackmann
Meanwhile the events for the new season are piling up. I am on a wee tour of Aberdeen soon then Aye Write, then the Bristol crimes fest where I am doing two great panels. One about the north/ south divide - four northerners against one southerner so she does not stand a chance. The other is on serial killers, and why we love them. Or do we still love them , or have we moved away from the Hannibal Lecter stuff- and more onto Sophie Hannah's 'in house' murder? Interesting stuff, but crime fiction is a broad church.
Just saying that makes me think of the great David Tennant on TV on Monday night. What an actor.
Still can't figure out who is doing what in that series though, I'll need to wait and see.
Further on Murder Is Everywhere will be about my trip to poke about in Loch Ness monster hunting, Ruth Ellis and the HMS Belfast! Not all at the same time.
