As always, great for networking and learning alike. Good to make the acquaintance again of Chris Longmuir and to find out that she had referenced Secrets Only Sleep in her book, Crime Fiction and the Indie Contribution. Also met a number of fellow countrymen and was reunited with fellow attendees from the Arvon course from Dec 2011. Attended the first ever Indie panel. Great for Bristol CrimeFest to acknowledge the contribution of self-published and indie authors.
I also met Louise Hunter who runs the online Crime Book Club, promoting books and authors. It’s a great site: www.crimebookclub.co.uk
