We’re giving two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to Whitley Bay’s first ever all-day crime fiction festival, which we’re delighted to be supporting

Bay Tales is a new venture, aiming to bring the very best in crime fiction to the region, celebrating the work of authors and connecting them with readers. 

For this live event at Playhouse Whitley Bay on 12th February, organisers Vic and Simon approached the biggest publishers in the UK to ask for their biggest, best and brightest titles for 2022. 

The writers they have on board include Sarah Vaughan whose first novel, Anatomy of a Scandal, will be adapted for Netflix, and Nikki May the author of Wahala, which is set to be one of the must-read debut novels of 2022. There are plenty of recognisable names involved too: Ann Cleeves, but also Trevor Wood whose crime trilogy is based on the streets of Newcastle. 

Fingers are crossed that this live event will prove just as popular as Bay Tales’ online offerings, and with a chance to meet authors, get signed books, win exclusive prizes and enjoy sneak peeks of new titles, we’re sure it will.
