The UK's Crime Writers' Assocation is holding a Crime Fiction Week during 14-20 June and has set up a dedicated site for it. The site lists all the events taking place during the week, by date schedule and by location so you can see what's going on. Whether author, an aspiring writer, in publishing, a bookseller, a blogger or anything else, you can also load up your contribution to the week. To date, I have two contributions on there:
- Along with Roger (R.N.) Morris, I have agreed to judge the Meldrum Writers' Group's Short Story Competition.
- During the week, I am planning to run an auction on this blog for a collectible book. As Crime Fiction Week immediately follows The Book Trade Charity's Action Week, the purpose of the auction is to raise money for The Book Trade Charity. I am working on getting a real beauty for the auction right now, so please return for more information.
How good to have a Crime Fiction Week to celebrate the best in crime fiction in the UK. There are already plenty of events posted up the site, so do take a look!
