Whose best friend was Mr Snuffalupagous? What was the name of Jessica Fletcher’s rather dangerous hometown? Who sang the ‘Family Ties’ theme tune? The answers to these and 347 other questions on over 160 shows can be found in The Ultimate US TV Quiz Book: The ’80s. What’s more, UK readers have just as much chance of answering the questions, as all the TV shows featured in the book have also been shown in the UK. Available from http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AU0YU92 and http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00AU0YU92.
A missing girl. A ruthless killer. A rookie P.I. Jake Abraham is a child of the 80s, brought up by Jim Rockford, Thomas Magnum and three beautiful girls who worked for a man named Charlie. He’s loving his new job as a Private Investigator and already has his first client – a disgraced former police captain whose daughter has disappeared. When the girl shows up dead, Jake is drawn into a dangerous world of organised crime, police corruption, infidelity and serial murder. With a terrified city in the grip of a killer who’s always one step ahead of the police, how can a raw young P.I. hope to make a difference? The Shoulders of Giants is a fun, fast paced thriller in the mold of Raymond Chandler and Robert B. Parker. Available from http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007RZBN3E and http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007RZBN3E.

As I post an interview a day (amongst other things) I can’t unfortunately review books but I have a list of those who do, and a feature called ‘Short Story Saturdays’ where I review stories of up to 2,500 words (and post stories of up to 3,000 words), or posted for others to critique (up to 5,000 words) on the new Morgen’s Online Short Story Writing Group. Alternatively if you have a short story or self-contained novel extract / short chapter (ideally up to 1000 words) that you’d like critiqued and don’t mind me posting it online in my new Red Pen Critique Sunday night posts, then do email me. I am now also looking for flash fiction (<1000 words) for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for Post-weekend Poetry and Morgen’s Online Poetry Writing Group.
