YOUR VOTE FOR PJ COUNTS!

I’m elated to report that I’ve been nominated for a People’s Bestseller Dagger. The Crime Thriller Awards will be held in London, at the Grosvenor’s House Hotel, on October 7th and broadcast on ITV3 on October 11th.

While the competition is fierce – I’m up against the likes of David Baldacci, Lee Child, Peter Robinson, and Mark Billigham; I’m confident, that with your help, I can take home the coveted Dagger!

Visit the Crime Thriller Awards website to cast your vote!

Spread the word if you can and please leave a comment here once you’ve voted so I can thank you properly.

    Me too. Pity you have to leave your details or we could vote again...

    Never read a David Baldacci, Lee Child is not my cup of tea at all, and I went off Peter Robinson a while ago (I think I told you why). I'm just reading my first Mark Billingham. So the vote was a bit of a foregone conclusion, and well-earned.

    Hi Peter

    Another vote just cast - all the luck in the world with that. However, unlike Val, I do actually like Peter Robinson and Lee Child, who I think are both talented writers, but no doubt that you still come out on top.

    Dear Peter

    All voted for - as always a great new entry into the Roy Grace series.

    Good luck, and hope all going swimmingly on the TV series - have you got Damien Lewis signed up yet!

    Regards

    TV progressing but slowly. No one signed up yet...!

    This is for Lynne: I am booked to come to the inaugural Stirling festival, Sept 14 - 16 next year. Hopefully we will build a tour around that.

    Voting done.

    I only came across you and the Roy Grace series earlier in the year and after the first book I just HAD to read them all one after the other ! I've got my mum and sister reading them too.

    Have also loved the others too.

    Please don't ever stop the Grace series, you can always move city as one reader suggested, how about Bournemouth !

    Thanks so much, Penny! I promise not to stop writing them... I do have a standalone, Perfect People, out this November, but don't worry, there will be a new Roy Grace in May 2012 !

    Thank you Peter, I can't wait!

    The quick read, Perfect Murder was excellent.

    I've posted a link on my facebook for the voting. GoodLuck

    I,ve just voted so good luck. Love the Roy Grace books as I grew up in Burgess Hill but now live up north so they always remind me of home. I am saving the new book for November when I fly to Sydney as I know I won,t be able to put it down. Thanks Sandra.

    I've just voted and it was no contest for me. I am just addicted to the Roy Grace series, the only one I have yet to read is Dead Man's Grip. I've got my sister hooked too! Good luck, Peter.

    Best wishes

    You really deserve to win Peter...
    can't wait to read the next Roy Grace saga and find out what Sandy is going to do. There are very few authors who can hold the readers' interest so intensely as you do.... your books are so pacey and totally addictive. Good Luck .... my vote is definitely for you. Yvonne Gillespie

    Right - mum has voted five times, dad has voted five times, and I've voted 10 times with my work email address and my private email address. If that doesn't win it for you, I don't know what will!

    I've also posted it to my Facebook profile so all my friends will vote for you too!

    I've just voted for you too! I've read and loved all of your Roy Grace books and am working my way through your older books which are equally gripping. Good luck, I will be cheering you on!

     
  • At 9:44 AM , Blogger Peter James said...

    Thank you so much, Penny - really thrilled you are enjoying my older books. I have a standalone, very much in the vein of these, called Perfect People, which will be published on Nov 4th, which you might enjoy, also.

    The perfect actor for Roy Grace is Alex Walkinshaw (Smithy in The Bill) I can already see him in the role. Please follow up and see that I am right. I am a 69 year old Welsh Grandmother and am seldom wrong!!!
