Issue 1 includes interviews with two bestselling crime writers: Wire in the Blood creator Val McDermid offers her writing tips; and  self-published crime author Kerry Wilkinson on how he topped the Kindle charts – and why he’s now signed with Pan Macmillan.

There’s plenty of social media advice, with features on How to Promote Your Books With Pinterest and 10 Ways to Win with WordPress; and a step-by-step tutorial on how to automatically tweet your blog.

Writing advice is provided by Tom Evans, Suzanne Collier offers advice on giving a talk in public, and our Ask An Agent feature is kicked off with Kirsty McLachlan’s essential advice on how you can get an agent without relying on the slush pile.
