Fremantle Press is delighted to announce that we’ll be publishing award-winning crime writer Alan Carter’s sixth book in late 2020.
Doom Creek is the follow-up to Carter’s 2017 novel Marlborough Man, which won the 2018 Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel and was shortlisted for the 2018 Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Fiction, and follows Sunderland man Detective Nick Chester as he navigates his new life in New Zealand.
The announcement coincides with Carter’s return to Western Australia for a couple of months, where he’ll be doing a number of events in the Perth metro and regional areas.
He’ll be talking about all things Cato Kwong at Busselton Library on Thursday 25 July at 10.30 am. Tickets are free, but bookings are essential to secure a place to hear him talk about his latest novel Heaven Sent.
Carter will also be running a character development workshop as part of Armadale Writers’ Festival on Sunday 6 September from 3.30 pm, as well as an event explaining his writing journey from 6 pm that evening. Tickets are free for both events, so get in quick if you want to learn some top tips from an established crime writer.
Alan said, ‘I’m chuffed to be back in Western Australia and doing two of the things I love most: talking all things Cato with lovely audiences and teaching new and emerging writers the tricks of the trade. I’m even more chuffed to be publishing my sixth book, Doom Creek, with Fremantle Press in late 2020.’
