It’s Super Thursday today, the day when a whole stack of COVID-delayed books are finally hitting the shelves. Over 600 hardbacks and a whole bunch of paperbacks. And in amongst this ocean of words, swims my little contribution – Cut Short, three original short stories featuring Washington Poe and Tilly Bradshaw. It’s only available as an ebook – the Amazon link is >here< but it’s on all the major ebook platforms should you prefer Kobo or Apple Books etc
Here’s the blurb:
*THREE BRAND NEW SHORT STORIES FROM THE WINNER OF THE CWA BEST CRIME NOVEL OF 2019 AWARD*
In The Killing Field, Poe and Tilly are having breakfast, wondering how to spend the rest of their holiday, when their presence is requested at a Cumbrian airfield. An airfield that, during the 2001 foot and mouth crisis, was known as the killing field . . .
In Why Don’t Sheep Shrink?, a global pandemic forces Poe and Tilly to self-isolate together. Things don’t go well. They’re bickering and on the verge of falling out until Poe finds an old case file: a locked room mystery he’s been mulling over for years. Step forward, Tilly Bradshaw . . .
Dead Man’s Fingers sees Poe, Tilly and Edgar, Poe’s English springer spaniel, enjoying a picnic at a nature reserve. When Edgar chases a rabbit, and Poe and Tilly chase after him, they stumble upon a twenty-year-old mystery, a mystery that couldn’t be solved until now . . .
And if this isn’t enough, I have news of another original Poe and Tilly short story out this month. Goldsboro Books in Covent Garden turned 21 this year and to celebrate authors from across the globe have come together and contributed short stories. So, if you want to know what happens when DI Stephanie Flynn sends Poe and Tilly on a human resources Achieving Effective Supervision course in Wales, First Edition is where it can be found.
From Goldsboro Books: This collection of original stories have been written to celebrate 21 years of Goldsboro Books. Wide in scope, beautiful, charming, thrilling and clever, this is the perfect celebration of authors, their stories and 21 years of Goldsboro Books.
That’s all folks ;)
