Harrogate Crime Writing Festival – Thursday.

What follows is short and sweet, due to the fact that it’s now 2am and I’m hoping to be up and back to see Martina Cole at 9am ! – That’s Harrogate for you 🙂

A fantastic evening’s launch tonight, which saw Geraint Jones win the Alibi Search for a New Crime Writer Award, PD James receive a special award for her contribution to crime writing and Lee Child scoop the Theakston’s Crime Novel of the Year for 61 Hours.

All that, plus a new, festival only, brew from Theakstons – Crime of Passion – what more could you ask for?  Okay, how about three more packed days and nights of Harrogate Crime Writing fun – cos that’s what is about to follow.

A lengthier blog and more pics will follow in due course, but I’m hoping these mini reports and pics will be enough to whet the appetite in the meantime.







And, next year’s looking mighty fine already – returning Chair, Mark Billingham, has already secured Harlan Coben, John Connolly and Charlaine Harris for 2012.

More tomorrow (although actually that’s today already.)
