Check Out New Talent November 2014 at Crime Fiction Lover.com

NTN-2014-logo-courier-300

Attention crime readers! Feast your eyes on this great crop of New Talent at Crime Fiction Lover running right the way through November, sponsored by 280 Steps, Blasted Heath, Caffeine Nights, ThunderPoint and Britain’s Next Bestseller. What new talent will you discover?

 Crime Fiction Lover says,

There’s nothing like discovering a new voice on the crime fiction scene, is there? That’s why each November, our team aims to bring  you some of the year’s hottest new talent.

We don’t only look at writers that have come through the traditional publishing stables either. During New Talent November, we feature debuts and second novels, but we also look at self-published and indie authors. You never know what kind of quality you’ll discover when you look into all the nooks and crannies of today’s publishing world and rather than look down our noses at the self-published author – as many do – we prefer to celebrate their potential.

MaskSome highlights to look out for include our favourite debuts of the year, and a look at some of the brightest new writers coming out of Scandinavia at the moment. We’ll be interviewing new author Phil Lecomber who wrote Mask of the Verdoy, and also William Girardi whose Alaskan chiller Hold the Dark is tearing up trees in America.

There will be reviews galore as well, including Toxic by Jackie McLean, The Devil in the Marshalsea by Antonia Hodgeson and The Axeman’s Jazz by Ray Celestin. We’ve got crime fiction from as far away as New Zealand, and we even have a book scheduled in called Maybe I Should Just Shoot You in the Face. It has to be the most direct title for a pulp publication we’ve come across in a while.

This is the fourth year in a row that we’ve run New Talent November, and for the first time it’s being supported by sponsors in the publishing industry. So we’re sending out a thank you to our backers who include:

280 Steps

Blasted Heath

Caffeine Nights

ThunderPoint

Britain’s Next Bestseller

These indie publishers are all trying new things with the technology, discovering interesting new authors and getting them out there. We’d urge you to check out books from these publishers during November – just keep coming back during the month and we’ll tell you more.

Here are some links to previous New Talent November events – just click the year – 2011, 2012 and 2013.

  1. Hi Raven!

    Phil Lecomber here – author of “Mask of the Verdoy”. The good folk over at Crime Fiction Lover (Mr Prestidge in particular) gave the book 5 stars in a recent review, and followed it up with an interview for their ‘New Talent November’ section. All of which was very much appreciated by this newbie indie author. I wondered whether you’d like to do something on the book for your site? You can check out some more detail at http://www.georgeharley.com.

    Let me know what you think.

    Phil Lecomber
