Episode 24 - The US vs Europe!  (Guest: Jason Starr)

This episode we are joined by international bestselling Crime author Jason Starr, whose list of accomplishments is so long, you should just go and read his bio HERE. Unfortunately the audio isn't perfect on parts of this episode. Our apologies.

News: Negative reviews are annoying, but there are probably better ways to deal with criticism than hitting the reviewer over the head with a bottle.

Reads: Cath loves the humor of Number 11, Rob digs skilled newcomer Danny Gardner, and Jason wants to put the word "girl" in every book title ever.

Topic: What sells in Europe? As Jason has just completed a European book tour for Savage Lane, we talk about how book markets differ from country to country.
