CWA Anthology Launch was December’s Hottest Party!

The CWA short story anthology, Mystery Tour, was launched among much festive merriment at the CWA Christmas Party on Dec 6 at Daunt Books, Cheapside. Fabulous venue, a fascinating assortment of authors, agents and publishers – and the wine kept on flowing!

Mystery Tour is the CWA’s latest short story collection – with a theme of foreign travel running through, so the reader has the enjoyment of exotic settings as well as some head-turning crime. Contributors include Peter Lovesey, J M Hewitt, Gordon Brown, Cath Staincliffe, Paul Gitsham, Judith Cutler, Christine Poulson, William Burton McCormick, Kate Rhodes, Kate Ellis, Vaseem Khan, Julia Crouch, Ann Cleeves and many more.

Edited by Martin Edwards and published by Orenda Books, Mystery Tour is out now and can be bought at booksellers including Daunt Books, Goldsboro Books and Amazon.

Hardbacks cost £14.99 and paperbacks £8.99.

Huge thanks to Matt at Daunt Books – a brilliant night – and to the amazing and irrepressible Charlie Flowers, the CWA London chapter convenor who organised the party and launch superbly, to Linda Stratmann, who helped everyone as usual, and to Karen and West Camel at Orenda Books.
