We were overjoyed to hear last week about our long-listing for the 2022 McIlvanney Crime Prize.
As a result of our 2020 - 21 winter crime submission window, we received 36 submissions, and there were three readers involved; all were quite unanimous Ewan's book was outstanding.
Meeting Ewan and starting to work witrh him was a pleasure, and so exciting. Most of all for Ewan, he was working with as completely new company, and so clearly that was quite a risk for him that we are so glad he took.
We need to thank Ambrose Kelly for editorial and marketing on the book; Craig Gibson for his edit; Joshua Andrew for layout; Cavan Convery for creating that cover that says it all; Kelly Lacey who so brilliantly spread the word; and the other readers and those involved.
