  1. Hello.
    I was trying to find your e-mail address but could not find any, so I decided to post my message here. I am writing from Poland, where your book “Bad Blood” is due to be published this month. I have just finished reading it and must say I really enjoyed it.
    The reason I am writing to you is that I am a subeditor of Polish website Carpe Noctem, which deals with horrors, thrillers and crimes stories, and I was wondering if we could arrange a quick Q&A through e-mail. I would translate it into Polish and publish on our website on the day of the publication of your book (23th of September), as an additional means of promotion.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
    Agnieszka Brodzik

  2. Hello Agnieszka,
    I’m sorry I missed your message, it was filtered out by my spam filter, sorry about that. I would be happy to do a Q&A with you if you’re still interested. I can’t find your email address on the Carpe Noctem website so I’m hoping you’ll get a notification about this message.
    Best wishes,

  3. Hello,
    I’ve just got your e-mail. Thank you for your time :) I’ll translate the answers tonight and hopefully publish the interview tomorrow. I’ll let you know when it’s available. Even though it’ll be in language you don’t know a bit, if I were in your shoes, I’ll be curious anyway ;)

    Again, thank you :)

    Greetings from Poland,
