Roisin's Christmas Party

Dear Supporters

** Breaking news ** Cold Dawn will be published on 18 August, and you should get your copy(ies) a few weeks before.

This means the deadline for names in the back is closing very soon . . . so if you know anyone who’s interested, get them to sign up by 13 February.

Currently, I’m engaged in the copyedit – with another brilliant editor Mary Chesshyre. Put simply, her job is to make sure that a red car in Chapter 3 doesn’t become a yellow car in Chapter 33.

In the meantime, if you’d like to read one of my short crime stories, you could try Roisin’s Christmas Party. It was runner up in the Bay Tales Christmas Short Story competition.

If you’re interested in writing short stories, then I teach a 3 week course online. Next time will be September, get in touch if you’re interested.

I hope you’ve all got a good book on the go!

My very best wishes, and continued thanks to you.

James X
