I go and do something else for a while - read, see a movie, go for a walk. A long walk is a really good way to clear the cobwebs.

But at the end of the day, the only way to break out of a block is to write, get the words down on the page, even if they suck.

I'm off to the wonderful Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival at Harrogate this weekend, and to join in with the festivities, my publisher is offering my new book for only 99p in UK ebook this weekend.

It's not even out in paperback yet, so this is a big £7 saving, and I hope you'll find it an offer you can't refuse.

You can get it at all the usual ebook outlets:

Mason Cross, The Killing Season

“The most important quality in my line of work is adaptability. Control what you can, but don't expect to control everything. Make plans, but don't be surprised when you have to tear them up and start from scratch. Don't waste time on wishing things were different, deal with them as they are. pg 235”
