Q&A with Steven Hayward

How excited am I that Steven Hayward has dropped by my blog on Jammed Up  Publication day for  to take part in my Q&A Interview. So without further ado I would like to welcome Mr Steven Hayward.

Morning thank you for joining me this morning
Morning Shell, lovely to finally meet you and thanks for inviting me along.

Can you tell us a little about yourself and background?
For the short answer, my Twitter handle says I’m an author/publisher, AML consultant, plant grower and beagle whisperer!

So, after a long career in banking, where I became the Head of Financial Crime at an American bank’s London office, I now alternate between anti-money laundering consulting contracts and periods of full-time writing and self-publishing. I grew up on the south coast in Dorset and first moved to London as a young man where I met my wife, Helen. Having worked in Poole, London, Wiltshire, Jersey, and visited many cities in Europe, Africa and the US, I now live in Kent with Helen and Ella, our 11-year-old beagle. I enjoy planting things in my garden and Ella enjoys digging them up. Our conversations are not always conducted in a whisper!

When did you know that you wanted to become a writer? and how did you go about it?
I always enjoyed writing, and I read a lot of books as a child. My skillset then was very much towards the creative side—English and Art—but it seemed sensible (and probably was) to pursue a more academic route and I fell straight out of grammar school into banking. The career then got in the way for more years than I care to mention, and it was only when I was at a bit of a crossroads at work that I decided I would revisit those latent vocational preferences.

A couple of creative writing courses got the juices flowing again and a few years later I was fortunate enough to be able to step back from the permanent job and start committing more time to writing. It was still a long, slow process to finally achieve my dream of writing a novel, but during that time I learned a lot about what it takes to be (and stick at being) an author, as well as much about myself, having plucked up the courage to step off the career treadmill.

With my story written, I then looked around for reassurance, but what I found was a publishing landscape in the fallout of the Credit Crunch that didn’t appear the slightest bit welcoming or nurturing to such a novice. I felt I had a choice between the soulful destruction of constant rejection by literary agents—who to be fair were struggling to find support from publishers for their existing clients (except the celebrity ones), let alone read and, dare I say, often even acknowledge receipt of the work of a complete unknown like me—and this brave new world of self-publishing. By now, I know all the arguments on both sides and, whilst I’d never say never to the traditional route, maybe the bottom line for me was that I’d just thrown off the shackles of corporate conformity and the last thing I was looking for was a new boss to tell me if and when they were ready to help me become successful in their world. So I chose to self-publish.

Can you tell us what genre your books are and the audience you write for?
My debut, Mickey Take was written as a stand-alone but is now set to be part of the Debt Goes Bad series. It’s a crime thriller, some might say a psychological thriller, where the hapless ex-banker who narrates the story, and the young woman who calls herself Grace de Manton and constantly pulls the wool over his eyes, have a way of lightening the mood when everything around them is looking grim.

The next in the series is a novella called Jammed Up which is a prequel with a difference, in that it sets new lead characters within the same backdrop, but a few years before the events in Mickey Take. And whilst technically a prequel, I’ve tried to write it in a way that allows for it to be read first or second.

Although they may not follow the traditional formulae, my books are written for readers of crime, psychological, serial killer thriller, and mystery genres – with a bit of romance thrown in! One thing they are not, is police procedural.

What is your writing process? and how long does it take?
I had a lot to learn writing Mickey Take and so it would be a stretch to say I had a process. I had an idea and I started writing. Consequently, it was several years of shelving and rewriting before I could finally think of it as a novel. I allowed myself to be reassured by Stephen King’s On Writing memoir, that it was cool not to know where the story was going! Second time around, I had a more detailed plan. The objective for Jammed Up was already set by the plotline in Mickey Take that I wanted to explore and so I at least knew where strategically it had to end. That said, I still enjoy the exhilaration of developing characters, settings and the tactical direction of each scene in the throes of that first draft creativity. But I have to say, producing Jammed Up in six months feels a whole lot better than the four years it took to finish Mickey Take!

Are your characters based on anyone you know or are they just fictional?
Michael Field—Mickey in Mickey Take—started out a little autobiographical until I realised my very safe life as a banker wouldn’t provide a very exciting journey for my readers! That’s when he morphed into the antithesis of me. But, of course, some of his insights and anecdotes are still mine. But are any of the thugs and psychopaths based on people I know? It probably wouldn’t be prudent for me to say!

I’ve taken a completely different approach in Jammed Up. While there are all the familiar shady characters from Mickey Take (with the exception, as I’ve said, of Mickey and Grace), I have introduced a streetwise Croydon “Rudeboy”, who takes loyalty to the extreme, and a feisty cafĂ© waitress with a chilling secret. I hope my readers will take them to their hearts, as I did writing about them, but they are both entirely fictional!

Have you wrote about a personal experience in your novels?
Not in any explicit sense. I’ve been lucky to have had a happy childhood, a loving family background, a regular job: who’d want to read about that? But seriously, it’s inevitable that your experiences influence what and how you write. I just consider myself fortunate that I have to rely more on my imagination for the juicier bits!

What research do you do?
As a writer, there isn’t much you can’t find out now from the internet, but there are some things you just have to go out and see, touch and, dare I say, smell for yourself. I spend many days exploring locations – like the seemingly innocuous detached house in South Woodford whose secrets I imagined, the little old Essex country pub the location of which I gave a sinister past, the quiet stretch of road where overtaking might constitute a life-threatening manoeuvre, and the quiet little lanes from which you might slip unnoticed into the deep shaded fringes of Epping Forest.

I also try to read as much as I can about the things I don’t know. For example, I wanted to explore the characteristics and distinguishing aspects of psychopaths and sociopaths and got a good insight into the former from Jon Ronson’s The Psychopath Test. And for the latter, Dr Bob Johnson’s Emotional Health was a mine of information on the real-life criminal minds and their frequent association with childhood abuse and emotional neglect. I was also fortunate to have a friend whose job took him regularly into HMP Wandsworth and whose help ensure an authentic description of visiting time.

Who would you like to co-write with and why?
That’s a really tough question. Like most writers, I’m naturally introverted and so the idea of exposing those tentative ideas and uncertainties to another person during the first draft is more than slightly disconcerting.

However, I belong to a small writers’ groups locally and I trust those three writers implicitly with my early ramblings, so I would probably say it would be one of them. All four of us now have self-published novels but we are each very different. I would love to write something humorous and transatlantic with Dominic Canty, the author of the brilliant Dead Men series that is going to be as big as Austin Powers someday. With Michael Tappenden the author of Pegasus to Paradise, a heart-rending biographical fiction about his D-Day hero father and bipolar mother, it would have to be something quirky and nostalgic. And with Jacqueline Andrews, the truly accomplished author of Eastbound, we would explore the seedier side of London town in its 1970s heyday. Only then would I have the confidence to admit that I’d love to co-write with Val McDermid!

What's your favorite book?
I don't have an out and out favourite, so I'm going to say the one that influenced me most when I started writing Mickey Take. Contract by Simon Spurrier demonstrated for me the power and immediacy of the present tense in the words of an unreliable, first person narrator.

What's your favorite food?
I was a fussy eater as a kid, but I did love Mum’s Shepherd’s Pie. Now, I’m something of an omnivore and more likely to go for a good Chicken Balti!

What's your favorite film?
There are only two films I’ve seen multiple times: Wizard of Oz and Gladiator – make of thau wit what yoll!

What's your favorite song?
If I had to pick one that makes the hair stand up on my neck it would be the Leona Lewis version of Run.

Anything For Her By Jack Jordan ~~~~~BLOG TOUR~~~~~~

Today I am delighted it is my stop on Anything For Her book relaunch with a new exciting cover

The Book
Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.
Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.
Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?
If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.
Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.
My thoughts

Anything for her is Jack Jordan debut novel  with one amazing cover. I was very excited to read this after reading rave reviews.

Louise Leighton finds out her husband is having an affair with her sister her life is falling apart then Brooke her daughter goes missing. But Louise and Brooke have a secret?! With a police investigation taking place for the hunt for Brooke this secret is sure to be revealed.

Taking into account this is the author's debut novel and bear in mind I am doing a proof-reading/editing course I struggled with the first 30% of this book for me it was very hard going because of the use of repetitive words which frustrated me. I was actually rewriting sentences and paragraphs in my head. I honestly think that the story would’ve been better wrote differently.

I didn't take to Louise she irritated the hell out of me. I just wanted to shake her silly!

Nevertheless I persevered with it and the story stepped up a gear and I was hooked and found the story gripping and intriguing keeping me guessing until the end. And what an ending I so wasn't expecting that.

Over all this is a good debut novel sadly it just didn't tick all the boxes for me.  But am I am sure lots of you crime fans out there will enjoy it.

This is a 3.5 star for me.Thank you to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Q&A Interview with Georgie Logan

I am delighted that the lovely Georgie Logan, who I have been lucky enough to meet. Has dropped by my blog to take part in my Q&A interview Georgie is  author of the Absolute vengeance series which include The Lie and The Hat. So without further ado I would like to welcome Georgie Logan

Morning thank you for joining me this morning
Thank you for inviting me and giving me the opportunity to introduce myself.

Can you tell us a little about yourself and background?
I'm married with five children and three gorgeous granddaughters. Born and still living in London, until my children flew the nest I was a housewife, or as I always write when filling in forms, Domestic Engineer ! Once my children hit their teenage years, I became a bartender, or for us oldies, a barmaid. I loved working in various pubs, where I met some terrific and colourful characters.
Now I'm writing, I haven't stepped behind a bar counter for a few years and have to say I miss the great banter with the customers.
I have released two books of a trilogy that can also be read as standalone. The Hat is book one and I have had some terrific feedback from readers who have gone on to read The Lie and can't wait to read The List which I'm currently editing.
When did you know that you wanted to become a writer? and how did you go about it?
I've always enjoyed writing since I was a child. My great-aunt would tell me stories about her life in Ireland and I used to write them down, but make changes that suited my version of a 'Happy Ever After' ! Then as the years rolled by, whenever I had time to myself, I would jot down stories in large notebooks just for fun. It wasn't until my eldest son bought me a computer that I realised how much fun I could have writing my stories and take them further with his encouragement.

Can you tell us what genre your books are and the audience you write for?
My genre is crime based but deals more with the families affected by certain crimes and the contrast in their principles. Within my genre there is a mix of romance and adult themes. The audience I write for is hopefully men as well as women of alI ages. With the various characters, I think people will relate to certain ones. A young man who read my first book, who I thought would identify with a main character similar in age, loved a much older character.

What is your writing process? and how long does it take?
Having the storyline and characters for The Hat in my head for some time, I eventually wrote the first draft in a notebook. Then with my new computer, there was no stopping me. I wrote the second draft in about three to four months. Then the editing and proof-reading took twice as long. Look forward to the day I can pay an editor and proof reader to do a job that is more taxing than writing the story.

Are your characters based on anyone you know or are they just fictional?

One character is based on a very dear friend and it was fun to write about her take on life. Other characters are based on people I've met from working in various pubs over the years. Then others are purely my imagination.

Have you wrote about a personal experience in your novels?
Yes, some scenes are loosely based on personal experiences.
What research do you do?
Thankfully we now have the Internet and because my storyline is set in various timelines, I can check whether certain items were available back then. I was writing about a certain mobile phone and suddenly realised back in 2000 it didn't exist !

Who would you like to co-write with and why?
I love Karin Slaughter, so she would be my choice to co-write with. I can imagine her take on my characters and the big city of London that is the complete opposite of where her books are based.

What's your favorite book?
I have so many favourites, Stephen King, Karin Slaughter and Chelsea Cain books are in my top ten, and although not my usual genre, my favourite is Shtum by Jem Lester.

What's your favorite food?
I adore all Greek food and am fortunate enough my brother-in-law is from Cyprus and taught me how to cook some fabulous dishes.

What's your favorite film?
My taste is varied from old musicals, science fiction, horror and thrillers, but if I had to choose, I'd have to say 'Man on Fire' starring Denzil Washington.

What's your favorite song?
I love music, so a really hard choice to pick a favourite, so instead I shall pick a song that is in my top twenty and I associate with my story.....'Let's Stay Together' by Al Green.

How can readers find out more information about yourself and your books?

I have to say I love your new book cover and title wishing you all the luck in the world with it. And thank you so much for joining me today.
Thank you, I did love the original cover but the title didn't give a hint to what the basis of the story was about. As The Hat is the first in a trilogy, I decided to add 'Absolute Vengeance' to define and link the three books. My son designed the new cover as well as the old one. Have to admit, it was sad to say goodbye to an image that has been with me for a long time.

Loose Cannon by Jack Steele

Loose CannonLoose Cannon by Jack Steele
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holly hell I can not believe Loose Cannon is a debut novel, having read some cracking reviews. This book went to the top of my pile and I sure as hell wasn't disappointed. I absolutely loved it. Having been at work all day and finishing early I couldn't wait to get in the garden and read it. Where I found myself totally hooked this is a page tuner and a half.

Chapter one starts off very gritty where we meet Marcia who is woken from a deep sleep deciding whether her front door has been forced over or if the noise was a dream. I knew from the first page I was going to like this book with a griping start, which had me on the edge of my seat. Then we meet Detective Joe Stone who girlfriend disappeared and he is still trying to find her. There is a psychopath serial killer on the lose. Can Joe find the killer before a civil war breaks out with two rival Mafia family's?!

The story is told from Joe's point of view which I loved and also the use of short chapters. With each chapter leaving you wanting more. Jack Steele is an excellent writer with descriptions of London that made me feel like I was there in the story. Jack has clearly done his research and is show throughout this story.

I have to say, WOW what an ending.....the words "What that is never the end" left my mouth at the end. Jack has left us on a cliffhanger. I seriously can not wait to read the next Joe Stone book to find out what is in store for him next and get to know him more. I am sure there is plenty more character development with him I found him likable and very intriguing with the whole girlfriend going missing story line.

Loose Cannon is a must read for anyone that enjoys gangland with this face-paced gripping read which will take you on one hell of a journey. Which I highly recommend giving it 5 massive stars.

~~~~~~BLOG TOUR~~~~~~~ Play Dead By Angela Marsons

I am super excited to be hosting day 2 of Angela Marsons Play Dead blog tour and to share my thoughts with you all today.

The Blurb

The dead don’t tell secrets… unless you listen.

The girl’s smashed-in face stared unseeing up to the blue sky, soil spilling out of her mouth. A hundred flies hovered above the bloodied mess.

Westerley research facility is not for the faint-hearted. A ‘body farm’ investigating human decomposition, its inhabitants are corpses in various states of decay. But when Detective Kim Stone and her team discover the fresh body of a young woman, it seems a killer has discovered the perfect cover to bury their crime.

Then a second girl is attacked and left for dead, her body drugged and mouth filled with soil. It’s clear to Stone and the team that a serial killer is at work – but just how many bodies will they uncover? And who is next?

As local reporter, Tracy Frost, disappears, the stakes are raised. The past seems to hold the key to the killer’s secrets – but can Kim uncover the truth before a twisted, damaged mind claims another victim …?

My Thoughts
Wow wow wow I absolutely freaking loved it and without a shadow of doubt this is the best one yet. Play Dead by Angela Marsons is the fourth novel in the KIm Stone series being a Black Country wench myself I love this series. It simply gets better and better.
One word of advice don't start this before you go to bed! I was gripped from the start and just couldn't put it down. My kindle was superglued to my hand while trying to do the washing at the same time, and I say trying because I didn't get much done LOL I was totally captivated in this chilling page turner, which I flew through.

So in this story we are taken on another Journey with Kim around the Black Country, I have to say I got mighty excited when we were taken to a village called Wall Heath which is Two seconds round the corner for me and I was also taken back to a place where I used to work! So for me visualising the places is easy because I actually know them. But nevertheless Angela has clearly done her research for those who don't know the Black Country. I love the information within this story from the past about The Black Country to.

Kim and her team are sent to Westerley research facility which is a body farm where investigations of  human decomposition of corpses in various states of decay take place. Then Detective Kim Stone and her team discover the fresh body of a young woman, it seems a killer has discovered the perfect cover to bury their crime.  But then a second girl is attacked and left for dead, her body drugged and mouth filled with soil. It's clear there is a serial killer on the loose but who is the next victim?!

I can honestly say, I had an OMG  moment with the first murder. Angela  certainly knows how to grab your attention and hold you there until the very end that's for sure. And boy what an ending……

The characters are growing from strength to strength although I am sure there is more to come with Kim has we get to know her more. I loved Bowen’s sarcastic sense of humour in this story. I did have a giggle to myself. Play Dead has everything you want in a crime book strong characters building up a  brilliant story with plenty twists and turn where I found myself saying “NO WAY” on more than one occasion. Angela also shows sensitivity in the writing with the subject matters. You can feel the emotion as you turn the pages.

This is the best Kim Stone book to date with this one being more gritty and tense. You crime book fans are seriously going to love it. If you haven't read any yet this can be read as a standalone although I would advise reading the series. It's too good not to miss.

I cannot recommend this book enough it's flippin fantastic or like they say in the Black Country Supa, smashin, great read!  And I wish the  rating was higher because this is a 10 star for me!!!
Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for an advanced reader's copy in exchange for a honest review.

#LadLitBlogTour The Flood by Steven Scaffardi

Here we are on day 25 of the Lad Lit Blog Tour and I am delighted to welcome Ollie Pemberton to Chelle's Book Reviews. Ollie is one of the stars of the Sex, Love and Dating Disaster series of books by lad lit author Steven Scaffardi.

Ollie, welcome to Chelle's Book Reviews. Let’s start at the beginning in The Drought. Your good friend, Dan Hilles, find himself in a bit of a predicament. What can you tell us about it?
Thanks Shell… That’s a great name by the way. I love that your parents named you after a thing you find at the beach.

What do you mean?
You know, shell. Like a crab shell.

No Ollie, it’s short for Michelle.
Crab shell is short for Michelle?

No, Shell is short for Michelle.
I’m confused.

The name Shell is… Don’t worry. Just tell me about Dan and his drought.
Oh okay. So Dan is a great guy, but pretty useless when it comes to women. In The Drought, after breaking up with his long-term girlfriend, Stacey, he becomes some sort of female repellent. I call him sexual Kryptonite! Anyway, The Drought is all about Dan’s journey to try and finally get his leg over, and it’s bloody funny as he gets himself into all sorts of ridiculous situations. Luckily he has his mates there to help him, like me.

Oh really? So you have quite a good knowledge of Kama Sutra then do you Ollie?
I sure do Crab Shell…

It’s just Shell.
Sorry, I mean I sure do Just Shell…

She was a foreign exchange student we went to school with.

Sorry, you have lost me. Who was a foreign exchange student? I asked you about your knowledge of the Kama Sutra.
Yeah, that was the name of the Turkish girl who came to our school as part of a foreign exchange scheme.

I think you’re getting confused. The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behaviour.
Oh. So you don’t want to know about the Turkish exchange student then?

No! I want to know how you helped Dan conquer his drought.
That makes more sense. I thought it was a bit strange that you wanted to know about her! I helped Dan improve his physique. I took him to the gym to help him become more physically attractive to the opposite sex.

Can you share any of those tips?
Sure. When you’re at the gym, never compliment a bloke on his sixpack unless you are talking about his choice of beer.

Er, okay. Let’s move on. In second book, The Flood, Dan has a slightly different problem. This time he finds himself having to juggle four women all at the same time. How did that happen?
We were all in the pub one afternoon, taking the mickey out of Dan and his lack of expertise when it comes to the ladies, and he got a bit upset and made this stupid bet that he could date four girls all at the same time over an eight week period.

And what happened next?
He ended up dating four girls, but he didn’t make things easy for himself. He dated a stalker, his crazy ex-girlfriend, a girl from his office who likes bad boys, and the one who got away. Put it this way – I don’t think Dan will want to date multiple girls again anytime soon after this experience!

Sounds intriguing! Let’s move on – why don’t you tell me a bit about you? Who is Ollie Pemberton?
I am. That’s my name. I thought you knew that?

I know that, I’m asking you to tell me about you.
Oh right! Well, I’m a postman and my best friend is Jack. Most people get annoyed with Jack, but I’ve known him since primary school so I know how to handle him. I like going to the pub with my mates, and my favourite TV programme at the moment is Question Time.

Really? You are interested in politics then?
Oh no, not at all. I don’t have a clue what they’re talking about most of the time. Jack told me that there is quite a lot of nudity in Question Time, so I’ve started watching it, but after five episodes I have not seen any nudity yet. Do you know when the nudity starts Just Shell?

Sorry Ollie, I don’t. But good luck with that! Thanks for joining me and good luck in your future adventures!

With the help of his three best pals, Dan is desperate and determined to get his leg-over with hilarious consequences!

I am delighted to be the next stop on #LadLitBlogTour for The Flood. Today I have got a character Q&A as well has my thoughts on the Flood.

The book

One bet, four girls, eight weeks, multiple dates. What could possibly go wrong?

Following his traumatic eight month dry spell, Dan Hilles is back in the driving seat and ready to put his dating disasters behind him.

But if only it were that simple.

After a drunken afternoon in the pub, fuelled by the confidence of alcohol, Dan makes a bet with his three best pals that will complicate his love-life more than ever when he brazenly declares that he could juggle multiple women all at the same time.

With just eight weeks to prove his point, Dan is about to find out how hard it is to date a flood of women without them all finding out about each other, especially when they come in the shape of an ex-girlfriend, a stalker, the office ice queen and the one that got away.

The Flood is the hilarious follow-up to The Drought by lad lit author Steven Scaffardi, chronicling the adventures of unlucky-in-love Dan Hilles.

My Thoughts

Having recently read The Drought and crying with laughter all the way through it I couldn't wait to get stuck into The Flood. Steven Scaffardi has got one wicked sense of humour. This is a must read for for all you fans of Laugh out Loud books. Lad lit isn't just for lads both male and female readers will love it,especially if you have a sense of humour like mine!!! LOL

So in The Flood we are meet up with Dan after eight months of dating disasters he is ready to put this behind him. And ends up making a bet with his three best pals were The Flood begins. Women are like buses with Dan he waits ages for one then they all arrive at the same time. Then with one disaster after another I was laughing very page I turned. Like I have mentioned before with The Drought this book is fun with a capital F.

Being a lass that is one of the lads in real life. I have to say I would love to a night out with the characters in this story, There is nothing not to like about them and I am sure a night out with them would be very entertaining and can totally relate to. I love them!

This book will having you laughing until your belly hurts it is just to funny so if you are looking for a funny laugh out loud entertaining read. I Highly recommend this giving it 5 stars. And can't wait until the next instalment is out.
