About Books and Writers


I started this blog as a labour of love and that’s the way it will continue.

I was fortunate to have been selected as one of two ‘bloggers in residence’ at 2011’s Harrogate Crime Writing Festival – so content was, and will continue to be, very crime fiction heavy.

  1. Hi There,

    Please could you let me know if you are SA based website?



  2. Hi, Keith.

    Since you enjoy stories about supernatural detectives, I wonder if I might interest you in my forthcoming novel, HARD SPELL. It’s due for publication in July, in both the UK and the US.

    It’s the first book in a series set in an “alternate” Scranton, PA, where supernatural creatures exist, and are part of society. But even “supes” break the law, sometimes – and when they do, Detective Sgt. Stan Markowski is the man who gets the call.

    For more information about the book, go here:


    May I have the publisher send you a review copy? If so, do you prefer paper or digital?

    Best wishes,

    Justin Gustainis

  3. Hi Keith,
    Do you have an email address for me to send you a review request?

    Many thanks,

  7. NOVEL FOR REVIEW: A Soul’s Calling, 340 pp., Wanderlust Publishing House, ISBN 13-978-0-61569-535-8

    Dear Keith,

    Sorry to approach you through your comments but I could find no email address to send this to. And, I know your time is limited and have to be very selective in the books you review, but I would count myself very lucky if you considered my book A Soul’s Calling for review on your website.

    A Soul’s Calling is a memoir about a man who listened to his heart instead of reason. The book, a work of speculative non-fiction, is part travelogue, part hiking adventure, with shamanism and magic woven throughout.

    A Soul’s Calling transports readers to Nepal’s rugged but enchanting Khumbu Valley where mountains speak and nature is imbued with a special kind of magic. The novel is an inspiring modern day adventure that weaves the timeless themes of living an authentic life, the consequences of power, and what a man would do for unrequited love.

    Scott, a forty-something attorney, is average in every way except one. He has a connection to the Other Side. He speaks to Spirit and Spirit speaks to him. He sees, hears, and interacts with an invisible realm that is beyond ordinary human perception. When Scott learns his soul has been spiritually compromised he travels to the ancient kingdom of Nepal to win it back. Once there, he hikes the Himalaya carrying a mysterious bundle and a stick laden with prayers from Luminous Beings hoping to come face to face with the greatest mountain on earth: Mount Everest. As his journey unfolds, Scott is called on to battle his fear of heights, the thin air, and his physical limitations. Powerful, sweeping, and deeply moving, readers will search their hearts as the book draws to a stunning conclusion.

    If this sounds appealing, I would be happy to provide you with a Kindle copy through Amazon. To read an excerpt from the book, please visit http://www.scott-bishop.com or you can view it using Amazon’s Look Inside feature here:


    With every best wish,

    Scott Bishop

    Hi Sarah,

    My name is Melanie, writing this query in behalf of Inger Wolf, a Danish crime writer who has just released her first novel Evil Water as an e-book in English. We will be pleased if you can consider it for a review, if you are interested we are more than happy to send you a free copy in whichever format you like ( PDF, EPUB, MOBI).

    Synopsis: Two women disappear without a trace, and the same autumn a farmer on the outskirts of Ă…rhus finds them murdered in suitcases under a heap of stone. The skin of one woman is filled with the letter Y and the other has a rare flower in her hair. Inspector Daniel Trokic is leading the case which goes in several directions: to a tribal population in Africa, religious insanity and a horrifying meeting with leeches. When a third woman disappears, Trokic is under pressure to find out what the killer wants to say with his macabre scenery and rituals.

    You can find more information about Inger Wolf on her website http://www.ingerwolf.com.
