Everything you need to get ready for Bloody Scotland 2021!

This email will give you everything you need to prepare for the best literary festival in town (and online!)

Step One: Get Tech Savvy

Add +447311080552 to your contacts! You can participate in Q&As by texting your question to this number. Online viewers will also have a chat-box under the event, so get thinking up your questions 💭
We've also put together a handy FAQ for watching online on our website here.

Step Two: Prepare for Prizes

We're about to wrap up our blog tour. You can follow the bloggers tagged on our Twitter here.

It'll soon be time to announce the winners! Find out who will take home both the Debut and the McIlvanney Prize at our Prize Ceremony on Friday 17th September at 5.15pm. Get your FREE ticket in-person or to watch online.

Step Three: Win A Survival Kit (or a stiff drink!)

The Likely Suspects is the criminally good line-up of authors and books from Simon & Schuster – and a new community for anyone who loves crime fiction books, film and TV. If you enjoy arresting police procedurals, tantalising thrillers, shiver-inducing suspense, phenomenal psychological chills and all manner of addictive, adrenaline-filled crime, then The Likely Suspects is the place for you.

We’re giving away a Likely Suspects survival goodie bag and five fantastic books to celebrate our launch at Bloody Scotland; including new novels from Nicci French, Louise Candlish, Jack Jordan and David Heska Wanbli Weiden.

Enter the competition below and make sure you’re following
@likely_suspects for in-depth discussions on everything from detectives and depositions to dodgy witnesses and death-defying plot twists.




Need to unwind after all the excitement?

To celebrate the publication of Neil Lancaster’s Dead Man’s Grave in hardback we’ve partnered with
Masters of Malt to give you the chance to win a bottle of Neil Lancaster’s favourite Dalwhinnie 15 year old whisky, and a copy of Dead Man’s Grave in hardback. Longlisted for the 2021 McIlvanney Prize, Dead Man’s Grave is the first stunning thriller in the new DS Max Craigie Scottish Crime series.
