Preparing Capital Crime: London Live with David Headley @DavidHHeadley @CapitalCrime1 @adamhamdy @midaspr @SophMidas @phoebe_swinburn

September is my birthday month, which means I get to treat myself to even more presents than usual πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‡

Months ago, I booked my hotel in Stirling to make sure not to miss Bloody Scotland. And now, I have another bookish reason to be happy… Capital Crime!

If you are on social media, you must have heard about it. Capital Crime is coming! As the first international crime and thriller festival in London, it will give crime fans a chance to gather, have fun, meet authors. But it is also so much more! We are getting news every week, and with each piece of information, I get more excited!

Today I want to share an interview given by David Headley, one of the founders of Capital Crime. I think it’s important to really understand the goals of the festival, why they decided to go for it, and ultimately, what you’ll be getting when you get there!

Bookish Gods bless NYC cabs!

I just love that the festival is inclusive and doesn’t rely on books only. I adore the initiative taken by Adam and David to bring the thrills to London, which is a buzzing and inspiring city. What else do I love? The excitement Capital Crime has triggered on so many levels! Guys, it’s going to be massive. Bloody massive!

Here’s a big more about David and Adam!

  1. Yeah I wasn’t aware this was in London… it’s closer than Harrogate and Bloody Scotland so that’s a big plus for me. Oh I really want to go, and it’s my birthday month too… maybe just maybe… Thanks for the info, I can’t wait for the pics that will follow of you and authors!!
