January 28th will see the launch of a new social media campaign for PanMacmillan crime author M.R. Hall, whose fifth Jenny Cooper crime novel, The Chosen Dead, publishes at the same time.

The theme of the campaign is Seven Secrets of Successful Crime Writing – and aspiring Agatha Christies and wannabe Ruth Rendells will have much to learn from a writer who has been nominated twice for the prestigious Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger for best novel of the year, and who is also a BAFTA-nominated screen-writer and producer, having written more than forty hours of prime time drama for BBC 1 and ITV.

Bookswarm has been busy shooting and editing exclusive video clips and designing and developing the social media campaign to deliver them, thus driving new readers to discover M.R. Hall and Jenny Cooper.

Watch this space for an update when the campaign launches…
