Hello again my fellow bookworms and page turners. wow, now that was a whirlwind of a weekend. Talk about a influx of information, The Brit-crime festival left me with so many idea’s, books, panels and questions, that I wasn’t sure how to really begin!.
as you can clearly see by the picture , there was far too much information for me to process into one post. So over the last 24 hours I have decided to do a..
*engage echo-y voice* – Crimeeee Weeeekkkkk..
In this first post of crime week, I am going to tell you a brief overview of the goings on in within the Brit-Crime festival. The festival was hosted over the weekend on Facebook through a series of event panels on which both the authors and attendee’s could discuss particular works of a featured author as well as ask the actual author questions on their style, writing and inspirations.
The ten panels within the festival consisted of the following:
Panel 1 : Serial Killer Thriller – with Rebecca Bradley | Steven Dunne | Jane Isaac | Craig Robertson
Panel 2 : This is Personal… – with Steve Cavanagh | Paul Finch | Mel Sherratt
Panel 3 : Proceed with Caution – with Eva Dolan | Sarah Hilary | Fergus McNeill
Panel 4 : Serial Offenders – with Graeme Cameron | Mason Cross | Emma Kavanagh | Alexandra Sokoloff
Panel 5 : Trust No One – with Mark Edwards | Chris Ewan | C L Taylor | Louise Voss
Panel 6: When the Past Won’t Stay Buried – with Jenny Blackhurst | SJI Holliday | Colette McBeth | Clare Mackintosh
Panel 7 : Crime in the City – with Michael J Malone | Alex Marwood | Nick Quantrill | Luca Veste
Panel 8 : Skeletons in the Closet – with Tammy Cohen | Julia Crouch | Amanda Jennings | Sarah Ward
Panel 9 : Foreign Bodies – with Quentin Bates | M J McGrath | K T Medina | Daniel Pembrey
Panel 10 : Femmes Fatales – with Helen Giltrow | Ava Marsh | Marnie Riches
Now I am unsure if I will be covering all 10 panels, but time permitting i will do as much as humanly possible within the week I have allotted myself.
Other then covering most if not all of the 10 panels, I will be doing reviews of certain crime novels, most of which are by Authors featured / mentioned within the Festival. I Also have a few interviews with crime writers lined up to wrap-up the whole week! I hope you all enjoy crime week! and if you have anything to discuss, add, or even criticize please feel free to do so in the comments below.
