Peter Tickler's Crime Fiction Update

Peter has three very nice events to look forward to in 2015.


1. A speaking engagement at the BookCrossing event in Oxford in April when he will be a guest member of the 'Deadly Dames'. If you aren't sure what book crossing is, why not check out this link?


2. Peter will also be visiting at the Chipping Norton Literary Festival where he is one of a number of writers to be featured in a photographic exhibition by Jane Stillwell.


3. Peter is giving one of his trademark highly interactive talks on Crime Fiction at the
Burford Literary Festival on Monday 8 June.


4. Other highlights of Peter's year will be the release of a short film scripted and directed by him (Wrong Number). It stars a very well known member of the Midsomer Murders cast. And also hopefully the release of a new crime novel (draft almost completed).



One of Peter's scripts has already been released. A Place for Everything was filmed in Shenzhen in China and released to coincode with Halloween. Click
HERE to see it - if you dare!


Incidentally, all of Peter's Blood in Oxford books are now available as e-books priced less than £3.00.


Peter loves talking to and listening to his readers (and potential readers). He has spoken in all sorts of places, including a castle and a prison, so why not invite him along to your favourite organisation or your bookgroup. Email him at petertickler@btinternet.com. If you want to find out a bit more about Peter, why not watch the video (below) or read through his interview by Morgen Bailey.

    "I am writing to thank you for giving your time to Wantage library on Saturday. The response from the staff who worked on the day has been full of praise for you; the visitors who attended have given us fantastic feedback and others who were in the library apparently made a point of staying longer and listening in!"
