In episode 16 of the newly renamed Hobcast Book Show, we speak to Graham Bartlett, former senior officer with Sussex Police and now the go-to expert for authors to ensure they write credible crime fiction. Graham rose through the ranks to become Divisional Commander in Brighton and Hove, one of the most demanding and interesting cities in the UK. It's a fascinating interview. Plus, Adrian and Rebecca discuss WH Smith's plans for expansion into the U.S, how Kindle Vella might not be all it seems, and celebrate the lifting of Facebook's ban on their Hobeck Books advertising account.

In The Hobcast Book Show, Adrian Hobart and Rebecca Collins, the founders of Hobeck, aim to get under the skin of launching a publishing company from scratch in the midst of the pandemic.
Each week, Adrian and Rebecca will discuss the key issues of the week, the ups and downs of running a creative business, and they'll hear from the people who make Hobeck possible: the authors, the editors and the cover designers who help them bring great stories to life.
If you're an aspiring author, self-publishing, working in independent or traditional publishing, or just love books - this is the podcast for you.
