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.

'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.’’

A Brown View on Life 10 – Travel

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.

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 I need to change the sample chapters on the site as they are now out of date and I’ll do this soon.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
