Sales of Murder in the Red Barn are encouraging; barely six weeks after publication, 25% of the first print-run has been sold.
One unexpected consequence: The East Anglian Daily Times published a picture of my book-signing last week in Bury St Edmunds, and someone has written to the newspaper complaining that ‘Maria Martin’ was spelled incorrectly; it should have been Marten.

The newspaper tells me that they plan to publish an editorial on all of this, this coming Saturday.
