Short stories for Christmas…

Welcome to week two of my Christmas reads – it’s anthologies this week. I contributed to two of these, and one is a freebie – keep reading!

Stories To Warm Your Heart

As the days become chilly and the evenings draw in, why not cosy up with us and enjoy our anthology packed full of stories to warm the heart? The Write Romantics present their first anthology of uplifting short stories created just for you, by best sellers such as Samantha Tonge, Terri Nixon, Holly Martin, Jo Bartlett and many more distinguished writers.

So light the fire, settle down on the sofa, and prepare to spend Christmas in July, visit The Bookshop of Dreams, meet The Handsome Stranger, and fall in love with Mr Perfect. Just a few of the twenty-three stories guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips and touch your soul, especially as all proceeds of this anthology will go to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the cancer charity Team Verrico.

I have a story in this book – it was inspired by a real-life event in the castle where I used to work. One day, there was a wedding there, and the fire brigade turned up. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a false alarm…

When the magic of Christmas is just what you’re looking for…

There’s something magical about Miss Moonshine’s Wonderful Emporium, and at Christmas she brings an added sparkle to the inhabitants of the pretty Yorkshire town of Haven Bridge. Customers who step over her threshold find an eccentric collection of gifts, but Miss Moonshine has a rare knack for providing exactly what they need: a strange Advent calendar whose doors give a glimpse of a happy ending; a vintage typewriter that types a ghostly message from Christmas past; a mirror in a silver case that reflects the person you’d like to be.
Step inside Miss Moonshine’s quirky shop, and the thing you need most for Christmas will be right there, waiting for you…

Nine romantic novelists from Yorkshire and Lancashire, including best-selling and award-winning authors, have joined together to create this collection of uplifting festive stories guaranteed to warm your heart. This intriguing mix of historical and contemporary romances will make you laugh, cry, and believe in the magic of Christmas.

This one’s waiting on my kindle. I read the first book of Miss Moonshine stories a year or two ago – they’re absolutely charming!

An anthology of twisted winter tales… (And best of all, it’s free!)

Ghostly echoes of a dark chapter in Latvian history…
An elaborate Christmas Eve heist with a twist…
The secrets that Santa has been keeping up his jumper…
A bittersweet visit from a long lost love…
Lessons from the ghosts of colleagues past…
And more…

I have a story in this one too. You can get your copy by subscribing to Hobeck Books, who will then send newsletters once or twice a month, some of them with other free books and stories too. (Click HERE for details of how to subscribe.)

Next week, it’s crime for Christmas. See you then!
