I was on the Simon Mayo show this afternoon, talking about the new book, Live Fire.
His Radio 5 books show is brilliant, with three guest reviewers and two authors. I was on with Nick Brownlee who has written a book called Bait, a great crime story set in Kenya. Nick is a journalist who lives in Cumbria, and it's his first novel. I really enjoyed it, especially the bit where a South African strings up a crocodile and kills it with his bare hands!
Everyone seemed to like Live Fire, which is good news. It was my third time on the Mayo show and I always enjoy it.
Today is the publication date of Live Fire, and Hodder and Stoughton sent me a bottle of champagne, which was good of them!
