Welcome to the news section of the site. I aim to update this page as often as possible as soon as relevant information becomes available to me. So, please send your snippets of Masterton-related news this way. I will also consider using reviews of the author's books written by the fans, as well as photographs that you think Graham's fans might wish to see. These might include photos taken with the man himself, pictures of your bookshelves (I hope to launch an image gallery in the near future), articles you've written or any other miscellaneous items you think this site might benefit from displaying. Please contact me with your proposals. I look forward to your contributions.

Just in from Graham: 'Today's the big day! I promised you that you would be able to participate in the publication of my spooky 18th-century crime novel Scarlet Widow. It is being crowd-funded by the innovative new publishers Unbound, who seek your participation in the publication of their books. This means that even for the minimum investment you get your name printed in the finished editions of the book, and for larger investments you receive other goodies too.

I have seen their books and they are the highest quality. They are a prestige publisher with a very impressive list of authors. One of their books made this year's Man Booker Prize longlist.

What I really like about them is that they are very author-friendly and reader-friendly too. Take a look at the video. I hope very much that you'd like to join in this very exciting and interesting new way of publishing the books I like to write and the books you like to read.'

From Graham: 'This is me with Marysia at her wedding to Stan in Warsaw. Marysia gave me the incentive to write Community at a time when I was finding it difficult to get back into writing after Wiescka passed away. I would write a chapter every day and email it to her in Warsaw and she would read it that night and tell me what she thought of it. She was absolutely brilliant and I was really pleased when she found Stan. The wedding was very moving and the reception was a riot!'

My corner of the shop was decorated by the manager Dawn Harris with cobwebs and bats and punpkins and a fearsome-looking rat (stuffed). My thanks to Dawn and all of her staff and everybody who cane out on a very wet day to raise a lot of money for charity. This is me and Dawn, who dressed very soberly for the occasion!'
