Happy Birthday to me…

I gained a year overnight. I don’t feel any older. It’s not like I woke up and the lines around my eyes were more prominent. It’s not like my knees or back aches any less than they did yesterday. But I am, as my birth certificate contests, 48 years young.

To mark the occasion today sees the release of HEART OF GLASS, a novel about two serial killers who fall in love. I’ve also put up LABYRINTH OF THE DOLLS, the second book in the Tom Nolan detective series, FREE on Kindle for a very limited time period. So this year I’m not asking for gifts, birthday cards or even a surprise party, which would be irresponsible due to the current lockdown. I ask instead that you spend the same amount of money on a birthday card buying either Heart of Glass, or maybe BAD PEOPLE, the first in the Tom Nolan series. Then download for FREE Labyrinth of the Dolls. If you do either of these things know you’ll be supporting independent publishing and giving me the confidence to continue doing what I love. Another birthday favour: if you could drop a mention on your timelines, send out a tweet, or share the news about Heart of Glass and Labyrinth of the Dolls, I’d be indebted. You will never fathom the power of word of mouth. The best birthday gift this year would be to see my books mentioned on any social media platform.

Thank you for sharing, buying, downloading, and above all, for being wonderful people. Craig.
