VODKA TO DIE FOR!
STOP PRESS – THE REVENGE TRAIL IS OUT NOW. A tense, twist-packed crime thriller about a vodka business, The Revenge Trail features glamorous blonde Kat White and vodka salesman Marty Bridges. At last, Kat’s craft vodka brand is taking off, while the mother who abandoned her faces financial ruin.
So does Marty. While Kat doesn’t trust him, she has to save his business or hers will go under too.
That’s not her biggest problem. Crazed murderer Shaun Halloran wants to kill her, even if it means breaking out of jail to take his revenge.
Kat dreams of love, riches and success in her life – but shouldn’t she just focus on staying alive?
With twists, tension, secrets and suspense – “The Revenge Trail” is a gripping crime thriller that will draw you into Kat’s exciting world.
Like the rest of the Trail series, The Revenge Trail is being published in dyslexia-friendly large print as well as standard paperback and Kindle formats. In fact, it was launched in the first week of October, Dyslexia Awareness Week. You can hear me talk about it by replaying Steve Yabsley’s BBC Radio Bristol show on 1st October – listen at 2 hours 17 minutes in.
I love meeting readers, and I’ll keep you posted about live readings of my fiction both on this page and in my newsletter (sign up here and get a free e-book). My next live event is…
…Crime, Thriller & Horror in the Cells!
Ever wondered what a prison cell is like? Imagine the clang of the door behind you, as you’re shut away in a tiny, austere box. See Bristol’s old Bridewell police cells for yourself during the Bristol Festival of Literature‘s Crime, Thriller & Horror in the Cells FREE event on Saturday 20th October, 2-4.30pm. There’s a book fair, book signings and story readings from best-selling authors like Jane Shemilt, plus Q&As with a forensic psychologist.
To tempt you into buying a few signed books for those Christmas stockings, I’ll be selling mine at a special low price on the day. You’ll have plenty of time to explore and take selfies in the cells, too!
I’m thrilled that my short story, A Taste of Paradise, was published in the No Bindings Magazine and podcast in Bristol and broadcast on the Ujima Radio Babbers Show on Monday 9th July!
Easy reading with large print!
Did you know 10% of us are dyslexic? I believe everyone deserves a paperback that’s easy to read, so I’m thrilled to have published a new large print dyslexia-friendly version of crime thriller Up In Smoke. There are traditional paperback and e-book editions as well (all links I’ve given are for Amazon UK, but the book is also available on other Amazon sites and on iBooks, Kobo etc). My Trail series of crime thrillers and an earlier book, After The Interview, are already on sale in a choice of formats – find out more here.
Do you have an old copy of Up In Smoke?
If you have an old copy of Up In Smoke – with a cover decorated with dollar signs – let me know, and I’ll replace it with a new one. I’ve made a few tweaks to the book, and I’d like you to have the most up to date version – with artist Paul Humphreys’ brilliant new book cover, above. Just email me at aaabbott[at]aaabbott.co.uk. I’ll send new e-books anywhere in the world and swap paperbacks in the UK (to send back your paperback, email me for my address, please. I’ll send you a new book, signed, as soon as I receive yours).
