The Hobcast Book Show had the delightful opportunity to attend the book launch for The Confessionby Hobeck Books author, Maureen Myant in Glasgow this week. Believe it or not, it's the first time we've attended a physical book launch since we launched the company. The novel is a fantastically twisty noirish thriller with a great premise: Julie Campbell's decaying body is discovered with a note - confessing to five murders. The issue is, none of the victims is dead - yet ... It's a great novel, full of human frailty and vanity, and demonstrating Maureen's depth of understanding of people drawn from a career as a clinical psychologist. So, join us as we take you to the book launch itself, and a special tour of one of the key locations for The Confession.
Also this week, we discuss how a computer glitch at Amazon has created issues for us at Hobeck Books, and how Harper Collins is the latest publisher to report a significant drop in sales.
