STORY NEWS - SMALL PRINT

I have just had word my short story 'Small Print' has been accepted for publication in next years 'Mammoth Book of Best British Crime Stories, vol. 9'.

I am stunned and not a little tearful.  I know.  Soppy old sod.  But, blimey. 

And what makes it all the sweeter is my pal and fellow Caffeine Nights stablemate, Nick Quantrill, will also be in there. 

Fantastic.

At the risk of sounding like an incoherent Oscars speech, I want to thank Maxim Jabowski, the editor of the Mammoth' series for giving me this opportunity, and Christopher Grant over at the fabulous A Twist of Noir for printing the story in the first place.

I think I need a coffee . . .
