Last night I was delighted to attend the book launch for Care To Die by Tana Collins at my favourite bookstore in Edinburgh, Blackwells. Care To Die is the second book in the Inspector Jim Carruthers series. The event was chaired by Dr Noir, Jacky Grámosi Collins, which for me was an unexpected delight, as Jacky is undoubtedly one of the most genuine, kind and inspirational people I have met on my blogging journey.
Tana Collins may have been nervous but it didn’t show, it was a superb interview by Jacky and Tana was engaging with the audience and effervescent about her wonderful books.
It was wonderful to learn that Castletown was in fact based on a real Scottish town but by using a made up name it gave Tana greater creative scope to work with and also she wouldn’t offend anyone from the real town. I was very happy to hear that book three is complete and will be released in 2018.
It was lovely to see some friendly faces in the crowd, Lesley Kelly, Jackie Mclean and Allison Brady. All of whom made my evening that extra bit special.
Here are some photos from the event.

Huge thanks to Tana Collins, for a superb launch. Also, the invitation to celebrate the launch with dinner and fabulous conversation with lovely people afterwards was a true delight.
