Day 7 of my big 12 day giveaway features another of my stories, namely my own 2015 Christmas release, Humbug.
Humbug– you may not be terribly surprised to learn – is based on one of my favourite Christmas stories, A Christmas Carol.
Instead of Ebenezer Scrooge, I have a Quin Flint (skinflint, geddit?), a management consultant who specialises in advising businesses on downsizing (aka firing people).
Quin is … driven. He’s determined to progress in his career, and he doesn’t care who he steps on to get ahead. Until one day, his ball-busting boss, Marley Joseph, side-swiped by a sudden family bereavement, tells Quin not to make the same mistakes she’s made over the last twenty five years, confiscates his phone and orders him to take a day off.
Over the next day and night, Quin finds himself confronting his past, opening his eyes up to his present – including good-hearted colleague Rob Paget – and ponders what his future holds if he sticks to his current path.
But can Quin change his life around in just one day?
You can find the buy links here.
