Review – Daily Record

This review of 59 minutes in the Daily Record is great – 59 Minutes – Gordon Brown – Shari Low – Daily Record – 02/10/10 http://blogs.dailyrecord.co.uk/sharilow/


Launch of 59 Minutes

What a great night at Waterstones last night. Thanks to everyone that turned out on a damp Tuesday night to listen to me waffle on. A big thanks to Waterstones for hosting the night. I’ve put a few photos from last night below.


PR Release

For info this is what is going out to the media – just in case you are interested:


Launch – 59 Minutes.

The launch of 59 Minutes will take place at 6:30pm at Waterstones on Sauchiehall St, Glasgow. If anyone wants to come along just let me know or turn up on the evening.


59 Minutes

Ok so it’s all getting a little hectic. The new book is out next month and I’m finalising the launch date. I’m setting up some signings and posters arrived yesterday. Bookmarks are on their way and I’ve already had orders from WH Smith, Waterstone’s and a range of independent book shops. It is also available at www.fledglingpress.co.uk and www.amazon.co.uk. I’ll update the site with further details as they come on line.


'59 Minutes'

Back cover blurb for the new book: ‘When it comes to revenge – timing is everything. Enter the world of a Glasgow criminal as he rises to become one of the most powerful crime lords in the UK, only to have it all ripped away from him. Imprisoned, then reduced to a life on the street, he becomes hell bent on vengeance. ‘59 Minutes’ is a high pace crime thriller and is Gordon Brown’s second book, following the success of his first novel, ‘Falling.’’


New Book – '59 Minutes'

The new novel, ’59 Minutes’, has just rolled of the printer and is to be launched soon – however you can get advance copies at www.fledglingpress.co.uk. I’ll post up signings, launch etc shortly.


A Brown View on Life 10 – Travel

A few weeks ago I, through a combination of work, pleasure and stupidity, flew home from holiday in Turkey and, almost immediately, spent six days driving to Manchester, to Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon before turning north to Harrogate and finally back home.


A Brown View on Life 9 – Music

I’m sitting listening to Armin van Buuren’s Unforgiveable from an album called Cream Future Trance.


New Novel Update

We are creeping ever nearer the launch of ’59 Minutes.’ Best bet, at the moment, is mid August. I’ll get the cover up on the site as soon as possible.

Ok so I lied!

I thought I was at the end of the edit process and then things went a little south. The new book decided it didn’t like the way I was treating it and after another read through it made it clear that it wanted me to work on it a bit more.


New Book

Final edit done. Now with publisher. Cover agreed. Launch date to be agreed. time for a cup of tea.


Crime Festival

I’m off for a sunny weekend of crime and, well more crime, at the Harrogate Crime Festival at the end of July. Hopefully I’ll have a copy of the new book to take with me as we are at final edit. I must dig out the cover and put it on the site.

What is going on?

Silence is golden or ignorance is bliss or … anyway I’ve ben remiss with the blog. The new novel is at final edit and will soon be heading for the printers – by soon I mean sometime in the next few months. We have a cover design we are happy with and a cracking strap-line – more soon. I need to change the sample chapters on the site as they are now out of date and I’ll do this soon. GB
