We both attending our first Harrogate Crime Festival this weekend and what a festival it was. We were finally able to meet so many of the new bookish friends we've made since starting Hobeck face-to-face and make some new ones too. We also managed to interview Ian Rankin, S. J. Parris, Mark Billingham and Martyn Waites for the Hobcast. Listen here to find out what they had to say.

21 July: Today marks the day before Hobeck Books goes to Harrogate but, more importantly, it marks the day we announce that bestselling author Judi Daykin is joining the Hobeck author team. We were thrilled when Judi approached us to see if we would like to publish her wonderful classic horror story Wayland Babes, a collection of five interconnected tales spanning five centuries based on Norfolk folklore. Adrian and I loved her beautifully written tales and were honoured to have been asked. We think you will love this book too. Publication is set for the month of Hallowe'en (not Harrowe'en).
