    Panel: Thrillers with Simon Kernick, Tom Wood, Mason Cross and GJ Brown

    The theme of this event is thrillers, and we’re in good hands as these four get together to discuss their heart stopping writing and explosive plotlines.

    Simon Kernick’s race-against-time novels and novellas have seen him top the crime charts. Mason Cross released The Samaritan in July, the second instalment of the popular series featuring investigator Carter Blake. G.J. Brown’s book Meltdown  is the latest gripping page-turner from this Glasgow author. Tom Wood’s new novel The Darkest Day has seen him described as “the new master of the dark, intricately plotted chase thriller.”

    Expect a lively discussion about how to write fast-paced plots that grab readers and don’t let go until the very end.

    12:00 pmWherever there is internet
    On Sunday 26th June #scotlitfest will be hosting the Collaborative Crime Creation on Twitter. We hope it’ll be like nothing Scottish crime fans have seen before.
    We’ve asked a number of Scotland’s best crime writers to spare 15 minutes of their time to contribute to a collaborative piece of crime writing which will be created live on Twitter. To give our writers something to work with ScotLitFest will ask the public to name the protagonist, decide where in Scotland the story will begin and what the crime will be. From there it’s all up to the writers…
    Louise Welsh will be kicking off the creation at 12pm on the Sunday and begin the story with the #SLFcrime hashtag. After 15 minutes she will stop and the next crime writer will pick up the story where she left off. After their 15 minutes of live writing on Twitter, the next writer will pick it up and so on until we have a full (and no doubt interesting!) piece of crime writing.
    If you can’t follow the whole thing on Twitter during the day do not worry! We will be gathering all the tweets together and making them into a free ebook so you can read the piece in its entirety.
    The first confirmed participants are…
    Louise Welsh | Mason Cross | Douglas Skelton | Lesley Kelly
    All #ScotLitFest events are free to ‘attend’, all you need is an internet connection and you can join us! Sign up on Eventbrite for the latest information straight to your email.

    Following the release of his debut novel, ‘The Killing Season’, Mason Cross arrived on the crime fiction scene with a bang. Not every debut novel is described by Lee Child as ‘my kind of book’, but Mason  achieved it.

    If that success wasn’t enough, the follow-up title, ‘The Samaritan’, continued the meteoric rise of main character Carter Blake, when it was included in the Richard and Judy Spring Books List this year. Fans of Mason Cross and his character Carter Blake didn’t have to wait long for more action packed pages with the release of the third part of the series, ‘The Time To Kill’, in May this year. Come along and hear this rising star of the Scottish crime fiction scene talk about his dark art.
