My new monthly newsletter is due out later today. This month, as well as the usual update on my work-in-progress, it features a free story and lots of stuff about gardens.
The story, Slash and Burn, is a tongue-in-cheek and rather spicy little number about two men on their day off and a bottle of oil.
‛Oh yeah.’ Mark stood up, took off his glasses, placed them with care on top of his book, then wrapped an arm of his own round John’s waist and pulled them close. ‛What are books anyway? I’ve forgotten.’
If you want to read more, there’s still time to sign up for the newsletter, which comes out once a month. I try to include free ‘stuff’ every few months and there’s always a mix of trips out, interesting history, mysteries, photos, ghosts, and general odds and ends.
Speaking of ghosts and trips out, this issue also includes a piece on our recent trip to Biddulph Grange gardens in Staffordshire. This was an absolute treat for me as it’s one of my all-time favourite places which helped inspire my ghost novel December Roses, but I hadn’t been back for nearly 30 years. It was lovely to see the place again and I’ve written more about the visit, the history of the gardens, and some of its very unusual features, in my newsletter.
If you want to read more about that, or just get your sticky fingers on the free story, you can sign up here.
