Having recently posted my thoughts about ‘Devil’s Peak’ by Deon Meyer, I have since been contacted by Lucy, at publishers Hodder & Stoughton, to see if I would accept a copy of Deon’s latest book, ‘Thirteen Hours’.
This is great, as I really enjoyed ‘Devil’s Peak’, so I can’t wait to get my hands on Deon’s latest offering, featuring his character, Detective Inspector Benny Griessel.
Meantime, I would like to share a short thought from Deon, that seems to make perfect sense to any author trying to break through in the fiction world:
“I still believe that short stories are the best way to learn the craft of writing.
Short stories teach you a lot about story structure – and you have limited space to develop character and plot.”
