Welcome to the Bloody Book Week, 2012!
The Bloody Book Week is South Africa's - and indeed, Africa's - first crime book festival.
The Bloody Book Week, returns for its 2nd year in 2012 - bigger and better than 2011's, with more discussions as well as more author events. Featuring journalists, forensic specialists and best-selling crime writers from South Africa and the rest of the world, our line up includes Mandy Wiener, Mark Gimenez, John Connolly and Jeffery Deaver, as well as experts in crime, investigation and forensics.
The brainchild of talk show host, author and book event promoter, Jenny Crwys-Williams, The Bloody Book Week will take place all over Johannesburg from 31 July to 5 August 2012.
One of the highlights of the week is The Bloody Book Week Masterclass: how to write your own crime fiction and make a fortune - which will be hosted by Mike Nicol with significant input from both Jeffery Deaver and John Connolly. Last year's tutorial with Michael Robotham, Mike Nicol and Sifiso Mzobe was one of the star attractions in a varied Bloody Book Week.
"The crime book festival will present a positive image of the South African crime writing industry and eventually will add to tourism in Joburg," says Jenny Crwys-Williams.
