I think so many people have started getting ready for Christmas early this year. I certainly have. My tree has already been up almost two weeks because I just needed something to lift my mood and spirits. I absolutely LOVE the run up to Christmas; it’s my favourite time of year. Unfortunately, so much of what I love isn’t happening this year due to the dreaded C-19. I usually take myself on a bus ride from Tower Hill right through the City – Monument, Cannon Street, St Paul’s, Fleet Street, Aldwych, Trafalgar Square, Regent Street and Oxford Street looking in awe and wonder at the Christmas lights like a kid in a sweetshop. Then I treat myself to coffee and cake somewhere nice. But although some of the streets in the West End have lights much of the rest of the city is in darkness with shops and offices closed. And although I’d argue that such a bus ride is vital to my mental health, I’m sure Boris would frown upon it as non-urgent. So, I put my tree up early and the house feels nice and cosy and festive.
It’s been a rough few weeks for me, unfortunately, but today I’m pleased to announce that my eleventh book has gone on sale! When I started writing I never imagined I’d ever write eleven books – plus the novellas and the collections of short stories – but I suppose I am proof that you never know what you can do until you try!
The book is called You Never See Rainbows At Christmas. What’s it about? Here’s the blurb:
Like a rhinestone Miss Havisham, Eloise plans to spend Christmas alone, lying on the settee, crying her eyes out and listening to Dolly Parton’s Greatest Hits. But a fall in the sleet two nights before Christmas lands her at the feet of rough sleeper Adam who is fighting his own demons. Limping, cut and bruised, she has no alternative but to accept his offer of help. And instead of rejection and solitude there’s friendship and company and the festive season suddenly seems brighter. Eloise’s never seen a rainbow at Christmas… Until now.
It’s available on Kindle and in paperback and here’s the link:
I hope you’ll enjoy it – and if you do please take a moment to drop a little review on amazon.co.uk It helps with the algorithms and brings me to the attention of more readers. Thank you!
