It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

Books for Christmas 2010

Bks4Xmas2010 This weekend sees us twelve weeks from Christmas.

Back in 2007, in the lead up to Christmas, I ran a series on this blog where some of our favourite published authors offered up their festive book picks; their selections for books ‘not to be missed’ from that year, which made ideal presents.  I plan to bring this back in 2010 and I have started sending out invitations for contributions.  There will be a couple of ‘enhancements’ this year: it will remain mainly crime fiction, but I’ll be inviting some non-crime authors too, and the book recommendations can be of any type.

[If you don’t receive an invitation in the coming three weeks and would like to contribute, please get in touch.  This also applies to anyone representing authors in the various formats.  My email address is in the contact section, if you don’t have it already.]

So, if you’re looking for some fabulous recommendations for books for Christmas presents this year, keep your eyes peeled for the above picture from the 1st of November 2010.  (That’s about eight shopping weeks by the way.)  I’ll post later in October with news of some of the wonderful people who will be contributing.

Let’s all make 2010’s festive book presents extra special!

(Reminder of the 2007 series here.)

    Great idea! I’ve got quite a few people who read a lot of crime, whereas I don’t, so it’ll be good to get some recommendations.
