Bud Craig's new crime novel well worth a read


I can heartily recommend the latest crime novel from my good friend Bud Craig. A Dangerous Time has just been published by The Book Folks.

In the novel, Bud is taking a break from Salford and Gus Keane - this book is set in Lovendale, a beautiful, fictional area in the North East.

Kate, an ex DI with the Met, arrives in the village of Alderton hoping for a quiet life, but murder soon puts paid to that.

The e-book is available now to download via Amazon and it is also out in paperback.

You can find out more at

You may also be interested to know that Bud’s dystopian story A State of Grace has been published in an anthology called Trouble (https://unipress.hud.ac.uk/plugins/books/18/).

A State of Grace was one of the stories chosen by the judges of a competition from the University of Huddersfield. And there’s more! Working to Rule, a satire set during the 2049 football season, won first prize in the National Association of Writers’ Groups novella competition 2018.

Blizzard faces up to conflict

Time and time again in my writing, I come back to the theme of conflict., It is what makes fiction work.But why is it important? Because stories need things to happen and that usually comes out of conflict - characters argue, fight, feud etc. It is through seeing characters in conflict that we see them at their truest, when their guard is down, when they are fighting…See More

It is crucial that your characters are hiding things. They may reveal their secrets to the reader but it can be a very effective storytelling tool if the investigators are in the dark until the story comes to its dramatic…See More
