New Talent November 2013 recap

1 Mins read

NTN 2013 logo 100So November draws to a close, and we hope you’ve enjoyed our fresh blood themed month as much as we have. It all began with a review of Becky Masterman’s crime debut, Rage Against the Dying, and we were also able to read and rate books by Roger Hobbs, Richard Crompton, Simon Fellowes, Katy Walters and several more.

honeyguideIt was also a great month for interviews and we introduced you to British author Luca Veste, the American writer CJ Howell and the Scandinavians Sander Jakobsen and Anders de la Motte. In the process, we brought you new pulp, police procedurals, conspiracy thrillers and, of course, psychological serial killer novels. There was even a review of a book by jockey AP McCoy, who has turned his whip-hand to crime writing. What more could a crime fiction lover want?

And for anyone looking for book recommendations, we brought you five female authors to watch in 2014, cast an eye back over the very best debuts of 2013, and listed two sets of ’10 to taste’ – novels by self-published and indie authors. We think it’s important to support emerging writers, and we hope you agree. Let us know if you think we should do New Talent November again in 2014!
