C&R Crime launch included the publication of The Circus, James Craig's fourth novel in the Inspector Carlyle series and The Poacher's Son by Paul Doiron.
I was delighted to be invited to the C&R Crime launch party which was held on 28 February 2012 at The Gallery at the Crypt, St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square.
I travelled down to London by train early that evening and found my way to The Crypt which was a fantastic location for a Crime Party - wonderfully atmospheric, with dark nooks and crannies everywhere.
I really enjoyed the party and met up with some other book bloggers and publishers. There were so many authors there, it was really lovely to hear MC Beaton give a speech - she's just about to publish her 106th novel - what an amazing lady. I spotted Cath Staincliffe across the room, but was never able to actually get through the crush to say hello. I did meet Quentin Bates - I'm a huge fan of his novels and it was great to meet him at last, after being Facebook friends for ages. Poor man, I grilled him about the next book in his series.
I really enjoyed the evening and was delighted to come away with a lovely goodie bag full of exciting new releases from C&R Crime.
It's really a fabulous read and I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series. To be in with a chance of winning a copy of The Poacher's Son, please fill in the form below, the giveaway will be open for seven days.
