Work In Progress Blog Tour

I’ve been invited by Andy Barrett to take part in a Work In Progress (WIP) blog tour. Andy is a real life CSI (or SOCO – Scenes Of Crime Officer – as they used to be called). Andy provided brilliant expert advice when I came to write my first major crime scene, and it’s no coincidence that my investigator character, Socko Garrett, has a very similar name. Andy is also a writer of outstanding gritty crime fiction. Please take a look at his blog, and his Amazon page.

There are three rules for this blog tour:

1. Link back to the post of the person who nominated you.
2. Write a little about and give the first sentence of the first three chapters of your current WIP
3. Nominate some other writers to do the same.

I have two WIPs on the go. One is Socko’s Keble Caper. This is the fourth spinoff Socko novella. A body has been found inside the top secret Keble Compound research facility. It’s an apparent suicide, but who is it? How did they get into the secure compound? And why?

Keble Compound was introduced in Socko’s First Fire (free and currently exclusive to members of my mailing list – see sidebar), and I’m sure it’ll crop up again!

The other WIP is Flick Carter book 3, currently called “Redacted” (because I’ve crossed out the title so many times!).

CAUTION! Here be spoilers for the end of Hunted!
