Creme de la Crime moves on
Fellow regional publisher Creme de la Crime will shortly be closing, but re-appearing as the crime imprint of Severn House which has bought the name. I'm sorry to lose Lynne Patrick from the local publishing scene as we would meet up regularly at festivals and book fairs. She will be doing some editorial work at Severn House but I'm sure she will be glad to shed the long hours she has put in at Creme de la Crime as publisher. She certainly worked hard and had a loyal stable of writers always willing to turn out for library and festival events. Some of her writers are going over to Severn House, some not. Her backlist is still available on http://www.cremedelacrime.com/home.htm but we'll have to wait to see what Severn House does with their new list as their website is under reconstruction.
