McLevy to Feature in Bloody Scotland

This week we have received exciting news. Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival has announced that Detective McLevy’s Casebook will have a slot in the festival. Exact dates, time and venues still to be confirmed.

Bloody Scotland is Scotland’s first international crime writing festival and will take place in Stirling on 14-16 September 2012. The line up is formed by some of the best modern crime fiction authors, such as Ian Rankin, Anne Perry and Alanna Knight, who has also contributed to our project by writing the introduction to Detective McLevy’s Casebook.

Detective McLevy’s Bloopers

Detective stories do not have to be serious. For that reason, and to show how much we enjoyed filming our McLevy short videos, we have decided to do a new video including the funniest outtakes. Enjoy!


Our cover is ready! We want to give special thanks to Iain McIntosh for this wonderful illustration and to our design team for the great job they have done with it. We hope you like it as much as we do.  You can find out more about Iain McIntosh by visiting his website.

Alanna Knight to Contribute to McLevy

Detective McLevy’s Casebook will include an introduction by Edinburgh-based crime writer Alanna Knight.

Alanna Knight is a prolific writer, having written around 60 books, including gothic and historical novels, crime fiction, and non-fiction works on Robert Louis Stevenson. Her more successful and acclaimed series of books is The Inspector Faro Series, featuring Victorian detective Jeremy Faro and set in Edinburgh. For more info, you can visit her webpage.

We are very happy that Alanna Knight is writing an introduction for us because she is an excellent crime writer who is an expert on crime fiction set in Victorian times. She was very kind to agree to help us and has offered to try her best to include our book in the celebrations for Sherlock Holmes’ 125th anniversary at Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival, which will take place on 14th – 16th September 2012 in Stirling.
