I am getting perilously close to completing the second in the DI Nick Dixon Crime Series, Head In The Sand. It’s going to be longer than As The Crow Flies and is more of a traditional British ‘police procedural’.
I’ve got several beta readers lined up to help me iron out any mistakes and am on track for publication before the end of September. It’s very exciting!
Here’s a sneak preview of the cover, with grateful thanks to Rachel Urbanowski at Littera Books Designs. Here’s a plug for her site http://www.litteradesigns.com/ and I just love the cover in the centre of her site header!
Regards to all,

I have read the first books and am on the third one at the moment. Head in the Sand was great but all through I wondered about the use of an electric kitchen knife being used on the beach in particular!
As a regular at Exeter Racecourse I was perturbed when you said that in Kickback, it ran ant-clockwise, when it is a clockwise course.
Looking forward to the the next book.
Thank you for your comment and I’m glad you are enjoying the books!
Several people have asked about the electric knife. They are available in cordless versions these days with rechargeable batteries and some of the more expensive ones are quite powerful. There are also some very powerful cordless fish filleting knives on the market too.
Thanks for pointing that out about Exeter. I’ve been many times and only live a couple of miles from the course but, for some reason, had got it fixed in my head it went anticlockwise. I’ll amend that as soon as possible!
With kind regards,

I have just finished reading Head In The Sand and as a local boy found it fascinating to be able to picture all the scenes. It is a fast moving and gripping read. A couple of points though. I have never heard of Musgrove Park Hospital referred to as ‘The’ Musgrove Park Hospital and the river running through Bridgwater is the Parrett, not Parrot.
Thank you for your comment. I’m glad you liked the book! You are quite right about the River Parrett, of course. I’d got it as Parrott…that’ll teach me to use local proof readers!
Interesting what you say about Musgrove Park Hospital too. Interesting and quite right! I’ve changed both references and thank you for the constructive comments.
