Sue (Mrs C) and I have just come back from a week in my hometown, Pickering in North Yorkshire. It was a welcome break, and quite novel for us to be able to stroll into town and pop into the shops or a cafe.

Of course, I took a few snaps to try and capture the place for you.

Murder Between the Tides – Sources

Murder Between the Tides – Sources

Thank you very much for reading Murder Between the Tides

I hope you enjoyed the story. This book felt like my homage to the classic golden-age mysteries that I grew up reading. What better setting for a mystery than a seaside hotel? We had the eclectic mixture of guests, a buried secret or two, a sense of rivalry and a quirky method of murder.

But I was keen to keep this in line with the rest of the Devonshire Mysteries (even though it is set in Cornwall), so the friendship between Dan and Alan is at the heart of this story. The pair are shaping up into quite a team.

It’s always great to hear from readers, so if you have questions that aren’t answered here, or if you’d like to say hello, please drop me a line via the contact page.

Spoiler alert

Seeing the sources before you read the book will spoil the story, so please only look if you’ve finished the book. (more…)

The New Author Podcast

The New Author Podcast

For a while, I’ve been recording informal chats as I walk through the Devon fields with Lottie, and they began as exclusively for members.

But as I fell into a routine of recording a chat every week, it seemed sensible to offer the recordings in a way that everyone would find easy to access. The best way to deliver regular audio updates is via podcasts because there are lots of ways for listeners to follow along, so I went for it.

I’ve set up podcasts before, but even so, the business of getting them going is generally a bit fraught. But we’re there now, and you can listen via your favourite podcast app, your phone, your smart speaker, even your smart TV.

Searching for ‘Michael Campling podcast’ will find it for you, but it may also turn up my old podcast for writers (writing talk podcast) which I haven’t updated for a long time, although I would like to restart it.

For your convenience, here are links to the main channels:

I’ll still be posting the chats on this site, so you don’t have to do anything different. It’s all about giving you a choice.

I hope you enjoy listening, and if you have anything you’d like me to talk about, please comment or drop me a line – you can always reply to a newsletter.
