Publishing Deal - Chris Nickson

Chris Nickson, author of the historical Richard Nottingham series, has a publishing deal for a new series, set in the recent past in Seattle. From Booktrade:
Creative Content, the specialist digital publishing company, has signed a 3-book deal with Chris Nickson.

Changing country, century – and the gender of the protagonist – Nickson's "Emerald City" is a trilogy of crime novels set in Seattle during the evolving grunge music scene of the 1980s and '90s, featuring music journalist Laura Barton.

Ali Muirden of Creative Content said "We were really excited when we read Chris's manuscript, as it encapsulates Seattle during the period. Chris lived and worked there for many years and it really shows in the way he writes. His evocative descriptions of Seattle and the surrounding Pacific North West coast area really made me want to visit the city. "

The first novel in the series will be published later this year as a simultaneous eBook original and audio book to be read by Lorelei King.

Chris Nickson's (crime) bibliography with reviews of all three books (so far) in the Richard Nottingham series, set in Leeds, is on the Euro Crime website
