It's always great to hear of our friends and colleagues' success in this difficult world of writing. David Hodges, who was strongly connected with Billericay in his youth, turned to novel-writing following his career in the police. David enjoys huge success with each new book. His third novel, Slice, has now been accepted by the mainstream publisher, Robert Hale, and is due for publication on 31 May this year. It's a hardback thriller and I, for one, will be reading it (hopefully with my reading group) when it is launched. The publishers have now advertised David's new book on Waterstone's, WH Smith and Amazon webs, inviting pre-orders. Price in hardbook is £18.99.

David's previous novels were 'Flashpoint' and 'Burnout', both published by Pharaoh Press from Liverpool. We want to see more of David and his books if he can manage to visit Brentwood Writers' Circle next year.
