It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

Crime Fiction Week 14-20 June 2010

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:

  1. Along with Roger (R.N.) Morris, I have agreed to judge the Meldrum Writers' Group's Short Story Competition.
  2. 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!

    Rhian – So happy to hear you’ll be involved in Crime Fiction Week. I’ll look forward to your auction : ), and I think you’re an excellent choice to judge that competition.

    Thanks Margot. It is an honour to be asked to judge the Short Story Competition. And I have a lead on what will be quite a remarkable book if it comes through. Email down for one day this week did not help, but I’ll be following up with my contact next week just in case technology beat the intention!

    Rhian, it is great news that you are judging this competition alongside Roger Morris. I am just about to start reading his latest historical novel A Razor Wrapped in Silk, and will be posting an interesting interview with him on Crime Scraps in the next few weeks.
    I shall also try and get to see Michael Jecks at the Dawlish Arts Festival.
