I'm very happy to say that the new Witness Impulse ebook edition of BLACK DOG has entered the Top 200 Nook bestsellers at Barnes & Noble:

"I LOVED this book! A new series to start reading!" - that's an extract from one of the latest blog reviews for BLACK DOG:

Meanwhile, an interview with me is still available over at Laurie's Thoughts and Reviews blog:

And there's a guest post by me at Omnimystery News, where I talk about the origins of BLACK DOG, and of Ben Cooper and Diane Fry too:

Many thanks to all the bloggers who've been taking part in the 'virtual book tour' for BLACK DOG in the USA. There's lots more to come between now and 7th November!

News for US readers! The new HarperCollins digital imprint Witness Impulse are about to re-launch the entire Cooper & Fry series in the USA in ebook format. The first title, BLACK DOG, will be released on 8th October. The new cover looks pretty gorgeous, I think. Get a glimpse of it below!

BLACK DOG was the book which first introduced young Derbyshire police detectives Ben Cooper and Diane Fry to the world, along with their 'E' Division colleagues and the fictional Peak District town of Edendale. There are now 13 books in the series, with a 14th on the way. So if you're in the US and you haven't experienced the Cooper & Fry series yet, now would be a good time to start!

Available initially in ebook formats, BLACK DOG will be on sale in the USA at just $2.99 from 8th October:

Witness Impulse will then release one Cooper & Fry novel a month until June 2014, when the rate steps up to TWO releases a month. So we can expect the second book, DANCING WITH THE VIRGINS, as soon as 5th November.

Watch out for the rest of the new covers. They're looking pretty good too!

To coincide with the release of BLACK DOG, I'll be taking part in a month-long 'virtual book tour' through October and into November. You can find dates for the various blog posts, interviews and reviews here:
