Happy Holidays Hop 2016


Happy Holidays, everyone.

I was delighted to get the chance to take part in this Blog Hop, organised by Nicki J Markus. I don’t have anything new for the festive season, I’m sorry to say. But I do have a short tale from DSP’s 2014 Celebrate Anthology, which celebrated the end of my first year as a published author.

secondbiteofthecherrylgSecond Bite of the Cherry is a New Year’s Eve story rather than a Christmas one, but I hope you like the sound of it anyway, and give it a go.


When Daniel Berrisford reluctantly agrees to accompany his best friend Kate to the New Year’s Eve celebrations in London, he doesn’t expect to enjoy himself. Daniel is pleasantly surprised to see his first boyfriend, James Allison, among the merrymakers. The pair haven’t seen each other for four years, but as they talk and midnight approaches, it becomes clear the spark between them is still there. The New Year is a time for new beginnings, and for Daniel and James, it might be the time to give love another chance.

Second Bite is only $1.39 on DSP at the moment, HERE

But if you’d like the chance to win a copy, please comment on this post and tell me about your most memorable Christmas/New Year/Holiday. Commentors’ names will go into the proverbial hat, and I’ll draw the winner on Christmas Day.

  1. most memorable was the year I gave birth to my baby girl, she was born on the summer solstice (21st Dec) 21 years ago.She had a couple of minor problems that kept us in hospital over Christmas (which I thought would be horrible!) but it turned into a really relaxed and fun day. l had family visit in small groups through the day, the nurses went out of their way to make the day special with small gifts for both mum and bub, the meal was the best I’ve ever had while in hospital. It ended up being a very special day.


  2. Thank you for the post. You don’t have to count me in for your story. I already own the 2014 Advent Calendar Anthology. My most memorable Christmas was the birth of my nephew (Dec 24) about two years ago. Best Christmas present ever, even if my sister in law was stuck in the hospital.
