Thanks Library Journal!

Yesterday was a full day, setting off at the crack of dawn to get to London to have a peek at the London Book Fair for my first time. I left the show several hours later laden with catalogues and a few proofs. I'd bumped into Ali Karim (Rapsheet, Shots etc) in the 'Noir' seminar which featured John Banville aka Benjamin Black.

I met up with Petrona at the British Library for a drink before we repaired to the nearby Pizza Express which was out of both asparagus and fudge pieces. The company more than made up for these disappointments.

Checking my blog this morning I'm very chuffed to see that Euro Crime has been named one of Library Journal's top eight mystery blogs. See the full list here!

Karen, this is wonderful! Have immediately posted about it at:

All (or almost all) of the other blogs were American and the whole article focused on American publishers, so you've done so brilliantly well to be featured there. This should really boost your traffic if there is any justice in this world!

It was a lovely evening last night, glad to see you got home last night. Next time, fudge and asparagus, definitely.

Congratulations again, I'm so thrilled for you.

Make sure you print out the article about a zillion times and take loads of copies to Harrogate, etc.
