Christmas release news!

I’ll have a new Christmas story coming out in a festive charity anthology which is releasing on 1st November, with all proceeds going to the Trevor Project. It’s all organised by the fantastic RJ Scott who has put an amazing amount of work into it.

The anthology, called Gifts for the Season, features 15 authors – all brand new stories – and the collection will be available for a limited period of three months (full details of authors and stories below).

You can (should you wish) pre-order now:

My story is a 12k historical story called The First Snow of Winter which links to the Winterbourne series – it’s sort of a prequel story, featuring two characters who will appear as side characters in the next book in the series – the much touted (by me) but as yet untitled Jonny-and-Perry book.

Blurb for The First Snow of Winter:

Captain Sam Alderton returns to England from the continent with his life in tatters. Maimed and directionless, the last thing he wants to do is spend Christmas with his family and their close friends, the Huxleys—especially Jasper Huxley, who he almost kissed five years before.

Sam plans to avoid the festivities, but when the first snow of winter arrives, and he and Jasper are trapped alone together at Alderton Hall, they find themselves revisiting old traditions and painful memories together—and discovering that things may not have been quite as either of them thought five years earlier.

As a small FYI, I plan to bring all the Winterbourne stories together in a single print book once Jonny-and-Perry is out.

  1. I am thrilled to see that this will not be the first and only time we will have met Sam & Jasper. I was going to beg, but I’m not very pretty when I do that. Lots of snivelling, tears and snot! Ugh, I know!
