Ben Bruce is CWA!

First up, I want to thank everyone who has picked up a copy of Dead Line. It’s been an incredibly exciting opening month for me and I’ve been blown away by the love shown to the book so far. The people who buy my books are the best, I really appreciate each and every one of you.

Now, this latest post is a little later than I had planned. Namely because I had been waiting on confirmation of a little bit of news that I had hoped I might get to share with you. And lo and behold, I can!

I am beyond thrilled to announce that I have been accepted into the Crime Writers’ Association. Founded in 1953 by John Creasey, the CWA supports, promotes and celebrates the crime genre and it’s writers. To quote from it’s own site, “The CWA is a thriving, growing community and a broad church. Its membership encompasses writers of all kinds of ‘crime’ – embracing procedural, psychological, all types of thriller, cosy, noir and even supernatural and fantasy cross-over. Writers of all crime-related non-fiction, including true crime, are welcome too. Writers of crime for children and young adults are also welcome to join as are authors of crime novels on graphic platforms.”

When I set out on this journey, the CWA was the home to the authors I admired the most. It was the place where the cool kids congregated and I genuinely didn’t think I’d ever meet the criteria to get in. Now, I have. I’m absolutely over the moon about it. There will be a celebratory gin or two being drank tonight (I’m not waiting till tomorrow, when I fear I’ll be drowning my sorrows!)

I look forward to being a part of the CWA and trying to get as involved as I can. It’s a privilege to be a part of it and I hope to be able to contribute in being an active and productive member. But ultimately, I’m only there because of the people who buy my books. Without you guys, my application would never have met the threshold. Once again, a huge thank you.

You can find my page on the CWA website, here.

The next time I send out a post, it should be about something brand new. I don’t intend to keep you waiting too much longer. Stay tuned.

The thrilling third installment in The Regulators is now available for pre-order.

The thrills of 24, the swagger of Reacher, the smarts of Spooks and the intrigue of Line of Duty... When an old source turns up dead, Adam Morgan finds that a case he thought closed is far from it. But this time, it's him and the rest of The Regulators in the firing line, as a shadowy organisation emerges to tighten it's grip on Britain. As the net closes and Adam runs out of people to trust, there's just one person who can help him to save the country; Jack Quinn. The problem is, no one knows where he is, and even if they can find him, will he want to fight one last time. Dead Line is the highly anticipated third book in The Regulators series by Ben Bruce.
