The Body Politic....UPDATE May 2021 #crimewriting #fiction #irishwriters #crimefiction

 It's been a roller coaster !

Firstly my little book has been more successful than I dared dream, with solid sales and great reviews. I also learnt a lot from the process, made a lot of mistakes and have had to revise the manuscript to catch several mistakes (and deepest thanks to everyone who pointed out the errors, the kindness and constructive way in which readers did so made it easy to learn those lessons :) ) 

So The Body Politic is now out there, and holding its own. We launched it online and had a great night, and my website has signed copies with merch for sale, as well as it being available on Amazon, Kindle in both paperback and kindle ebook. 

If you ask for it at your local bookstore and they don't have it, ask them to order it (tell them there's excellent wholesale rates ;) ) will get me!

Now I'm hard at work on Book 2 - and it's already a better book for having been through this process. It's tighter, the plot is more original, the characters are established now and are becoming more and more real. It's still hard work, but there's a sense of having grown a lot, and of avoiding many pitfalls. 

If you bought it  and/or reviewed it, THANK YOU. If you haven't but you're going to, thank you too in advance!

THE BODY POLITIC (Caroline Jordan Book 1) Out February 28th #crime #crimewriting #newbook #booklaunch #books #writing


"Caroline has a dead minister of state, a new job to manage, a fledgling PR company to save - the last thing she needs are rumours of murder and a strange policeman dogging her steps. Can she outwit the murderer, save her company, impress her new VIP client and most importantly, survive? She's not sure but fueled by vodka, rage and steely determination, she's going to give it a good try!
When Minister Damien Fitzpatrick is found dead at his desk, everyone assumes it was natural causes. Caroline Jordan has spent 4 years keeping the Minister on track, hiding his volatile personality and building his public image as a good family man and serious politician. Now she's facing social Siberia and a serious setback for her PR firm. This is, she thinks, the worst thing that could happen.

Meanwhile DS Doyle is faced with the unwelcome news that Minister has been murdered and the prime suspects include the leader of the country, another Minister, several high ranking officials and Ireland's most brazen gangster turned property developer.

 When Caroline finds herself dragged into the mess, one thing becomes clear. She is going to fight to the bitter end for Jordan PR, her employees and her new VIP client. And if she can manage a romance with the gorgeous but elusive Rory Fitzpatrick at the same time, why not
