Blasted Heath is a new epublisher co-run by my agent, Allan Guthrie, which launched this week. Al is a great agent and knows more about eBooks than anybody else I know. So I figure it’s going to be a huge success, but I’m going to wish them luck anyway. Blasted Heath are publishing an interesting range of authors including Gerard Brennan and Douglas Lindsay. I’ve already downloaded two novels from the site. For those of you who are quick off the mark, today they’re GIVING AWAY the new book from the wonderful Ray Banks. I like Ray’s tight, northern noir so much that he’s the only author to get two novelettes in the Crime Express series that I edit. Watch the interview with him above (who is that dumb interviewer?) and ‘Dead Money‘s is a bargain at £1.99 if you’re too late for a free download (check the website for more offers, including a USB stick with all of the launch novels).
