This week, my guest is Alex Smith - author of the much loved (by me and many others) DCI Robbie Kett series of crime novels. Alex is an indie author, so much of our talk revolves around that and when we really get into it, you’ll see why so many authors prefer that route to the traditional one (though I did forget to mention that perhaps not everybody who can string 80,000 words together should publish - much like the long forgotten phrase “just because you can get into it doesn’t mean you should wear it”.
The new Kett novel - Lucky Number Seven - is released this coming Friday (August 4th if you’re late to the party), so that’s my weekend sorted, but as I aways say, if you’re intrigued, you’ve got to start at the beginning.
Footnote: We did this interview a few weeks ago but I figured it would be smart to hold it back until the new book was within striking distance, thus any mentions of said item ‘coming down the line’ are now null and void because it’s here.
Here’s Alex’s page on Amazon
And here’s his website:
…the rest you can pick up from there.
Thanks for tuning in.
