It’s been a while since I’ve sold an article to 10 daily, but as I already mentioned I’ve had more time to write ever since coronavirus effectively shut down all the promotional appearances I had booked for my novel this year. Ironically one of the first things I’ve done with my time is write some opinion pieces about coronavirus and the prison system. I sent an article to 10 daily last week though it wasn’t their cup of tea; I instead shared it on my website in my last post. They did, however, suggest a topic for me to write on instead, and given what it was, I was only too happy to oblige. So here’s my official response to everyone currently quarantined in a five-star hotel that are comparing themselves to prisoners. Check out the article here.
Thankfully my novel promotion isn’t completely dead in the water either. The Australian Crime Writers Association has featured Scarred on their website, and I got a killer review from author Lee Hall just the other day. Go check out his website and his novels if you’re looking for something else to read during our extended self-isolation period.
Update: The Daily Mail ended up publishing an article … about my article. You can check that out here.
