Ten days till my book comes out. My dream is to fly to Heathrow and see it in the airport bookshop. Of course like all books it needs the oxygen of publicity. We'll see...meanwhile I'm enjoying the adventure!

Only Connect

Went to LA Times bookfair yesterday. Met two writer-visionaries, John Green and Barry Eisler, who are engaging with the new technology to establish communities with their readers.  That is the future - a much more connected, interactive relationship between writer and reader.

The Butler Did It Cover

My book cover. What do you think, folks?

Would this induce you to buy the book, or even to become one of those raving rabid loyal fans social media gurus twitter on about?

The book, which tells of my true and terrifying encounters with a serial killing butler, is available now on

 and in all good UK bookshops.

It is also available on

And the good news is that as I write this, at 3am on the morning of 12 April, California time, the book has leapt into the Number One spot in the Hot New Releases (serial killers) charts.

Is the butler slaying the opposition? Here's the link . You can pre-order and find out how to lay a table and/or your aristocratic employer.
