Happy Tuesday! If it was the bank holiday weekend where you are, I hope you had a good one.
Today I’d like to tell you a little bit about Gunshot Glitter, the début novel by my very good twitter and blog buddy Yasmin Selena Butt.
Celine Silver is a killer who, at the request of an ex-lover, coldly murders a young man on his 21st birthday. When her real love comes back into her life, Celine knows it is a life he is too good for, but he has questions that he’s not for letting go. Can Celine find her way back to the time before the blood began to spill? Does she deserve to? And what about the boy who was the victim of her last hit?
You can read more about Gunshot Glitter on Amazon here. It’s a crime novel, but it’s also a love story and I think it’s proof that a cross-genre novel can work, in the hands of a skilled author.
The print edition of Gunshot Glitter is available NOW (details of how to get it here) and you can also get the ebook from Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords. It’s the best book I’ve read this year so far, (even though some bits made me blush when I was reading it on the bus, but that might just be me. Ahem.)
Here’s the first chapter on Yasmin’s blog.
I never thought it would be possible to sympathise with a killer, but I did. Gunshot Glitter is an original story, beautifully written and with that all too rare “I couldn’t put it down” quality. When I’d finished reading, I missed the characters (yes, even the killer) which doesn’t happen often enough, I find, and must surely be precisely what an author is trying to achieve. In my opinion Gunshot Glitter deserves every one of its five star reviews and more, why not check it out and see if you agree?
