Good news

I have just signed the contract - my first crime/mystery novel will be published by Hearts On Fire Books in both print and eBook format.

A Policeman's Lot by Gary M. Dobbs

: A Policeman’s Lot is not a happy one. This certainly applies to Police Inspector Frank Parade who heads up a skeleton force responsible for policing Pontypridd and the immediate valleys. It’s an hectic enough job at the best of times but the fact that the world famous Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Circus is in town only adds to the workload. Soon Parade and his team have to contend with cowboys and Indians as well as a string of murders, the origin of which stretch back sixteen years.

Think you know Jack the Ripper? Think again – it’s 1904, South Wales and the most gruesome murders in history are about to be solved.

Thanks everyone for the good wishes. It's an exciting time for me - Arkansas Smith comes next month and it shouldn't be too long for A Policeman's Lot.

Fantastic. Congratulations!

That your crime novel now has a firm publishing home is pleasing news. Sounds, too, like you've been able to reinstate your intended title, which I personally preferred to Deadly Echoes.

Keith - it went from Policeman's Lot to Deadly Echoes and then to Brutal Acts and then back to Policeman's Lot. The only other option was, "It's high noon, boyo!" LOL

Congratulations, Gary, that's great news! High noon, boyo... quite catchy, I thought.
