There’s good news to announce and it’s definitely celebration time here at Edwards Towers.

Thank you to everyone who has bought Here To Stay so far. To date 50,000 copies have been sold in under a month!

For anyone who hasn’t yet bought it, it’s a tale about the chilling consequences of welcoming strangers into your home and the in-laws from hell.

Here are some of the reviews from readers:

“It has the twists, the turns and the emotion that every psychological thriller NEEDS to have to be successful.” – Lucii Dixon, Southampton, UK

“The tension I felt reading this was insane. At some points I even got physically anxious and had to keep reading just to calm my nerves.” – Joe Hunt, Worcestershire, UK

“I was hooked on this book from page one and couldn’t put it down until I finished, Another great read from Mark Edwards.” – Yvonne Doney, New South Wales, Australia

“This book takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions while reading it…happy, sad, maddening, frustration, and downright angry.” – Leila Rae-Bush, Georgia, USA

“Fantastic story! A week spun tale with plenty of twists and right as you have figured it out, you have nothing. . .” David Alspector, Las Vegas, USA

If you’ve not yet read it, it’s available from Amazon.

Don’t miss out – Come and meet me at Chase BookFest

If you’ve always wanted to meet me, now’s your chance! I’ll be taking part in a meet and greet event at Chase BookFest at the Museum of Cannock Chase in Hednesford on Saturday, 21 September.

It’s the museum’s first ‘Chase BookFest’ which will be showcasing some local authors and others from further afield.

The day will include ‘Meet the Author’ sessions, Waterstones pop up book store, Author Readings, Q&A panels (Crime and women’s fiction), Tea with the Author plus lots more.

There are only a handful of tickets left for my event so if you want to come and meet me for tea and cake, call the number in the picture (01543 877666) before they sell out.

It’s £3 entry plus £5 for my event. I’ll be signing books too. The admission price also includes entry to prize draws which has exciting prizes such as signed books, book bundles and an afternoon tea voucher.

Throughout the day there will be timetabled author readings and meet and sign sessions. These don’t need to be booked, but will only take place at the allotted time. You will be posted a timetable if you book in advance, or given one if you purchase your entry ticket on the day.

I look forward to meeting some of you there and enjoying a nice cuppa and a slice or two of cake.

Me looking very excited to be named winner!

I did it! Last of the Magpies won its category at the Dead Good Reader Awards – and it’s all thanks to you guys. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me. It’s the first thing I’ve ever won and I’m very, very pleased.

I was announced as the winner at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate and it was such a great honour and a special night. I’m very proud that Lucy Newton won The Cat and Mouse Award for Most Elusive Villain as she’s the antagonist in my first solo novel, The Magpies, which sparked the sequels A Murder of Magpies and Last of the Magpies.

Thank you all again for voting once, twice, as many times as you could to make sure that I won.

Here’s hoping there may be a few more awards on the horizon!
