More on Bloody Scotland: Crime in the Spotlight

In my last post, I told you that I'd been awarded a "Crime in the Spotlight" slot (for new authors) at Bloody Scotland.

Well, I now know at which event I've been given 3 minutes to speak...

2pm on Saturday 10th September, in the Albert Halls at Stirling

And whose event am I gate-crashing???

MC Beaton and Fred Macaulay! Details of their event can be found HERE.


There are just 12 slots awarded, so I'm feeling honoured, thrilled, excited and terrified about it, in about equal measure (though terrified may have it by a significant margin!). Even the biggest lecture theatre that I've ever lectured in is about half the size of the Albert Halls and I'm just praying that I don't screw up.

Hope you can all make it up to the festival - it promises to be excellent (apart from possibly the 3 minutes that involve me...).

Better go and work on what I'm going to say in my 3 minutes!
