It’s the season for giving, and although December has only just begun, there are so many giveaways this month that I and many other authors are involved with. I was a bit befuddled until I read a very useful blog post from the lovely Ofelia Grand setting out all the events clearly, and as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I thought I’d do one too!
Over at JMS Books, there’s an Advent Calendar event, starting today, December 1st through to the 24th, with a free download of a recently published book every day. Talking of Ofelia, she’s kicking off the event with her fabulous story The Setup, which I’ve read and loved. It’s free today at JMS Books. Nip over and grab a bargain!
In 1760s London, Joshua Jones, a young working man of colour, is balancing his art studies with his shifts at a gambling hell in exclusive St. James’. Last year at the club, he met and fell in love with Frank Bartlett, an older man and a diplomat. Now Joshua fears their budding relationship is faltering. Can he convince Frank that they have a future together?
There’s also lots going on over at Facebook. Talking RoMMance with a British Accent and MM Euro Book Banter Facebook groups are having Advent Calendar events from December 1st -24th with fun, games and daily giveaways from an array of authors. It’s only the first day and both parties are already rolling! I’ll be featured with a giveaway from my backlist at Talking RoMMance group on December 9th and then party host for the day at MM Euro Book Banter on December 12th.
Also on Facebook, Small but Mighty group has a seasonal #holidaybookdrop on Sunday, December 4th with lots of games and giveaways from a host of authors including me. The same group also has The Twelve Tropes of Christmas event from December 9th – 20th, featuring one trope per day with games and giveaways. I’ll be popping up in Close Proximity trope day on December 9th for a giveaway of my last year’s Christmas story, A Midwinter Night’s Magic.
Matthew Lewis is trapped at a Christmas country house party by snowy weather and forced to take part in a reading of a Midsummer Night’s Dream. To make things worse, his lost love Crispin Marley, to whom he has sworn undying hatred, is amongst the guests. Can some fairy magic from Puck help the estranged couple to make amends for once and all?
Hope to see some of you for the festive fun and games. December is turning out to be a party month with plenty of reading freebies!
