Today I have an extract from Emily Gallo’s recent release, The Last Resort. First of all, here’s what the book is about…
An old sixties musician and his trim mama run a pot farm in the Emerald Triangle of northern California and welcome an exonerated ex-con, a Las Vegas prostitute, a union organizer from the Bronx, an escapee of a sex slave cult, a retired carney with Parkinson’s Disease, and an old Mississippi blues guitarist down on his luck. Together they create a last resort, a modern version of home and family.
I’m delighted to welcome Robert Crouch with his guest post about the challenges of writing a series.
Over to you, Robert…
When you publish a novel, you’re never sure if it will appeal to readers.
When you release your novel into the crime fiction market, you’re up against some pretty tough competition.
When you write something different from anything else in the genre, you’re taking a chance.

OLYMPIA, WEST LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM Mar 10-12, 2020
The London Book Fair is a massive international affair and, in Europe at least, it’s second only to Frankfurt. It’s a place for authors, booksellers/buyers, distributors, literary agents/scouts, publishers, translators and obviously readers. LBF holds two award ceremonies each year. The International Excellence Awards, celebrating publishing and related activities outside of the UK and The Trailblazers, celebrating those under 30 in the publishing industry. The London Book Fair is delighted to have Sharjah as the Market Focus for 2020.
