This festival takes place in a large marquee on the beach where more than 20 authors shortlisted for its annual award spend the weekend meeting the public, giving talks, and signing books. Interviews and panels take place in a bus parked on the promenade, and authors are treated to fabulous food and wine in local restaurants over the weekend.
By a unanimous vote unprecedented in the history of the book festival this year's voters chose Peter's "L'Ile des Chasseurs d'Oiseaux". Peter receives the award, in the presence of filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier. The prize itself is a sculpture by French artist and sculptor, Jean-Paul Carnet. Published first in France, it will be released in other European countries - including the United Kingdom early in Within one hour of the announcement of the award, the bookseller hosting Peter's stand had sold out of all the copies of the book!
Peter with his award, and some remaining copies of the China Thrillers. Spring On the Road. With its intricate plot, compelling characters, and bombshell denouement, this unsettling Enzo Files installment is a must-read. This is a truly multi-level work with thoughtful excursions into the painful inner lives of the characters, even as we follow them to inevitable and tragic conclusions. A most satisfying novel. Although May obviously and justifiably prides himself on his grasp of the plot mechanics, something must be said for his vivid settings, which remove the story from the library and send it out into the wide, wide world.
In May's fourth installment of the Enzo Files series, the remote Ile de Groix, with its turbulent coast, rough weather, and laconic and secretive residents, tests Macleod intellectually and physically as he attempts to solve a case so cold it's frigid The Enzo Files are a great series that is four for four.

June Blacklight Blue Playlist Snakehead Playlist. April Details of the broadcast follow, but first, have a look at author Carl Brookins' interview with Peter. You can find it here Busy Month December 29, Peter's Live Internet Broadcasts The first broadcast went incredibly smoothly. Too smoothly. The second made up for that when Peter lost his internet connection 2 minutes before the broadcast was scheduled. Re-setting the modem and re-booting proved useless. So a telephone call from France to New York resulted in Peter's brother-in-law logging on, taking control of the online studio, locating the pre-recorded segments and getting the show on the air only 3 minutes after the scheduled time!
That gave Peter 27 minutes to locate someone with hi-speed internet that was working, and persuade them to let him come and use it Another 4 telephone calls later he was away with his laptop, driving through narrow country roads in the dark, through France. After all the required French formalities: kisses, handhakes, pleasantries, some hasty explanations what's French for "live internet broadcast"?!

This is the second time that Peter's books have been honored in his adopted homeland.
Summer The summer has been devoted to the writing of Peter's third book in The Enzo Files series. Both are respected book critics and radio presenters who regularly host live events at the major French book festivals. Peter says, "They're a pleasure to be with and always do their utmost to make me feel at ease on stage with them.
They even manage to make it look as if I can actually speak French. Lorient is a Breton port town, a favourite with sailors and pleasure cruisers. The last time Peter had been there was for the Celtic Film and Television Festival in the early 90s, when the Gaelic drama serial Machair , which he co-created and produced, was nominated for an award. This Festival Inter-Celtique was mainly centred around music and for once Peter wasn't alone in France in his kilt. Scottish and Irish singers and musicians filled the streets of the Breton port.
The Guinness flowed in the beer tents and Rachid provided some fine Scotch malt whisky in the "Bistrot Litteraire". One whole side of the harbour was taken over with tents of bookstalls pic above , where authors signed their works for the public in the sunshine. One rather bizarre event occurred while Peter was there. The festival in Lorient coincided with a fete day at Bretenoux, the small town close to Peter's home in South West France.
Artzimut, an arts organisation, had decided to conduct a tour of the hamlet where Peter lives and had wanted him to give a talk about his work. When they discovered that he would be at the other end of the country, they insisted that there had to be some other way of having him "attend".
To that end, they set up an internet link so that he could give his talk by video. So on the Saturday afternoon, Peter got connected from his computer via the Lorient hotel's WIFI to a computer set up by Artzimut in the garden of his home.
