This will likely be my last post for 2016, so I’ll wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
DCI Claire Winters and I will see you in 2017.

Just to clarify…

Just to clarify – There’s a new review on Amazon UK for ‘For All Our Sins’, which is written by someone, unknown to me, (thank you, whoever you are) but they happen to have my name (T M E Walsh) as their username. This could give the impression that I have written myself a review, which I’d like to clarify isn’t the case. I do appreciate the time taken to leave a review nonetheless.

‘The Principle of Evil’ – FREE for 5 days

My second DCI Winters novel, ‘The Principle of Evil’, is FREE for 5 days, starting from tomorrow.on kindle

Although it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone, with no spoilers relating to book one.

The novel has had some great reviews, and it’s the work I am most proud of. If you’re a fan of crime thrillers, then give it a try.

I’d be grateful if people can spread the word! 🙂

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who downloaded ‘Broken Palace’ yesterday and to those who helped me promote it.

I’ve looked at the reports on Amazon and I’m both excited and nervous. There were a LOT of downloads, and that confirms two things for me.

  1. Everyone loves a freebie 😉
  2. Everyone is going to have an opinion on the work.

It was my first attempt at a short story, and it also includes excerpts from my two crime novels.

Reviews are welcome, good or bad. If there are any criticisms, please make them constructive.

I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that for a lot of authors, we all feel very anxious when we share our work with the world. We can spend weeks, months and even years working on a project, and, understandably, we can feel very protective over our ‘baby’.

Part of being a writer is about learning and improving our work, being open to new ideas or seeing things from another person’s perspective.

Sometimes we need to take the plunge, and get the work out there. Otherwise how else can you find out what works and what doesn’t?

‘Broken Palace’ – FREE promotion – LAST DAY

Have a fantastic Sunday everyone.KINDLE FINAL COVER - BROKEN PALACE

The 1st DCI Claire Winters novel, ‘For All Our Sins’, released on Kindle today ONLY 77p ($1.20)


FOR ALL OUR SINS was originally published in February 2011 but since the rights reverted back to me, the novel has undergone a re-write, and this is the new version, released on Kindle today, a snip at only 77p! ($1.20) You can buy it here (amazon UK)  or here (Amazon US)

This novel has been a long journey, from its very first conception in 2007, to the first publication in 2011, through to the new improved version we have today, which is the one I want readers to focus on.

The second DCI Claire Winters novel, THE PRINCIPLE OF EVIL, was originally completed in 2012 and after two requests for the complete MS, the novel is currently undergoing a trim of the initial word count and an extract can be found at the end of the Kindle version of FOR ALL OUR SINS.

Those who bought the old version would still benefit from reading the new version and you don’t need a Kindle to read it on either. You can download the Kindle app for the PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android devices via Amazon.


‘The room smelled of blood, so thick she could almost taste it.’

A butchered priest.

A thirst for revenge.

A dark secret that won’t stay buried . . .

The murdered, mutilated body of a priest is lying in his own church. It’s something that hard-headed DCI Claire Winters of Haverbridge CID hasn’t seen before.

This is a new evil.

Sent on the trail of a killer motivated by a deep-seated and long-standing rage, Claire and her team must race against time to join together the pieces of a deadly puzzle, before others become victims of the killer’s hatred.

Sometimes there’s a fine line between good and evil.

Who would be willing to cross it?

So, I really hope people enjoy it.

Good luck to everyone else who has their work coming out soon and I hope all us writers can continue to support each other.

‘Us writers’ need to stick together.’ 😀

Front cover – Opinions wanted please

COVER ATTEMPT 10OK fellow bloggers and followers, I need opinions please – What do you think of this front cover? The revised/improved 1st DCI Winters book might be going on Kindle while I await a ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ on the 2nd book (The Principle of Evil).

Personally, I like it a lot better than the original paperback version that was released in 2011. Since the rights have reverted back to me, I have given the book a good edit and improved the story etc BUT I also knew the cover would also need a complete re-vamp . . .

So, here it is!

(Be gentle with me if you have any criticisms – this is the first cover I’ve done and it took all day! I have been staring at the PC for so long, I’ve gone cross-eyed!)
