Boundless joy - the new #DepecheMode album is the best thing they’ve done for years. And I’m seeing them at Madison Square Garden in three weeks. Ridiculously excited.

Depeche album out tomorrow. It’s my first new vinyl purchase for… some years.

Atticus is coming soon – probably this week – but, after that, the next two books will be back to back Miltons. Better get cracking.

Interesting, as ever. @thecreativepenn

Xavier Howard AND Jalen Ramsey? What?

You can tell I’m obsessed with something when I choose a hotel purely on the basis of whether it has a Peloton bike. Favourite instructor. Favourite song. And a PB. Ready for my flight home this afternoon.

Nice walk through Seattle on the way to spend time with Amazon. Here are the spheres, otherwise known as Jeff’s balls.

A dangerous man is on the loose and Milton isn't the only one on his hit list. But could he be the only one capable of taking him out for good?

Off to Vegas for Mrs D’s birthday and then heading northwest to Seattle to visit Amazon for the first time since COVID.

Can't wait to share this one... It's been a while, but Atticus Priest returns in his third mystery: THE RED ROOM. You can preorder now and expect to see the book on your Kindle next month:

My #war #diary climbed to #2 on Amazon UK in 2 to Russia's history categories. Why #Russia? Only #Amazon algorithms know.
But if war in #Ukraine leads to the collapse of the fascist Russian empire, it's fair to relate my book to the Russian history finale.

"Self-publishing is for anyone, but not for everyone. It has been exhausting, but exhilarating. Tiring and terrifying. I’ve felt empowered for the very first time in my whole time as a writer."

@StuartWhiteWM shares his journey to self-publishing:

It’s been an unusual week. My normal routine is to write from nine until the early afternoon and, when I’m at the earliest stages of a draft, I’ll usually get 2500 to 3000 words in the bank.

Welcome to the thrilling new mystery for #TheAfterSchoolDetectiveClub a crime-cracking gang of sleuthing youngsters created by top team @pbackwriter & @BenMMantle @antswilk @KidsWelbeck

Out today! #BookTwitter #military #aviation #coldwar

An interesting article in @thebookseller this morning about publishers paying more attention to self-published authors. I’ve been banging on about this for ages: if I ran a publishing house, one of the first things I'd do would be to look for ways to work with successful indies.

Fox dipping into their 80s Brit classic bin for the #SuperBowl - Numan’s Cars and then The Cult’s She Sells Sanctuary. Approved!
