Cold Feet and Christmas Food Favourites

I want to welcome a good friend and great writer to my blog today! Welcome back, Jay Northcote. Hi, Posy. Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today 🙂 I’m here to introduce my Christmas novella, Cold Feet. For my post here I decided to focus on festive food. My family’s Christmas dinner is pretty traditional for a UK Christmas meal. We have turkey for the meat eaters—but usually a turkey crown because half my family are veggies so we have a nut roast as well. That goes with roast potatoes and gravy. For veg we usually have carrots and we always have sprouts. I’m not sure…

Guest: Jay Northcote – Leaving Home and …

Not Just Friends begins with one of my main characters—Lewis—moving into his hall of residence (what US readers would call a dorm) at university. He doesn’t know anyone there, all his friends from school are scattered at different unis and colleges around the country. Lewis is starting over. It was early evening when Lewis’s stuff was finally all unloaded and his parents were ready to leave. Lewis accompanied them down to the car park to say his farewells, a mixture of excitement and anxiety swirling in his belly. He’d barely spent any time away from home before, just the odd few days here and there for school camp or scouting…

Guest: Anne Barwell Talks about her …

Welcome, Anne. It’s so lovely to have you visiting me today! Thanks, Posy, for hosting me here today. My upcoming release Shades of Sepia is the first book in The Sleepless City, a M/M urban fantasy series co-authored with Elizabeth Noble.  It’s one of those stories that collected a fair-sized ‘soundtrack’ along the way. When I write I like to have music playing in the background.  It’s part of my writing routine. Make a cuppa, put on music.  Sometimes it is just background music, but often I find myself gravitating to a certain sound of music depending on what I’m writing. Many, if not all, of my stories/series/characters/ end up…

Guest Post: Annabelle Jacobs’ Bookshelf

Annabelle Jacobs is here to share her bookshelves with us, or at least one. Please welcome her. I love to read. I especially love to read with an actual book in my hand. Don’t get me wrong I have an awful lot of books on my ereader, and now it’s where I do most of my reading, but there’s just something a little nicer about a book. I have a lot of books. There are far too many for my poor bookcase to handle, so I have them piled up all over the house. As you can see, I like a whole range of genres including crime, and horror, but…

Jay Northcote talks about The Little …

Today I’m lucky enough to have my good friend Jay Northcote visiting my site. She’s here to talk about her wonderful new book, but I’ll let her tell you all about it rather than getting in her way. Thank you, Posy, for hosting me again as part of my mini blog tour to promote my new release, The Little Things.  Today I’d like to talk about love. As a romance writer, love is obviously a subject that fascinates me. Back when I was a teenager (far too many years ago) and going through the wonderful confusion and excitement of crushes, first kisses, and first boyfriends, love was pretty much all…

Jay Northcote Talks First Times, but …

I’m so happy to welcome one of my reading partners and friends, Jay Northcote, to my blog today. Her book Nothing Serious was released a few days ago, and I was one of the lucky early readers. But let me step aside now, because Jay is talking about first times. Oh, the scandal! My Favourite First Times Nothing Serious is a story full of first times and new experiences. At twenty-nine, Mark has only recently admitted to himself that he’s gay. We meet him at the point when he’s moving out of the house that he shared with his long-term (now ex) girlfriend and moving to his own flat. When he…

Annabelle Jacobs is Here! Let’s …

I’m so pleased to have Annabelle Jacobs here today to talk about her new release, The Choosing. I’ve been hearing about it behind the scenes for months, and I’m so excited to read it. The cover is gorgeous. Why Fantasy? I recently told a friend of mine that I’d written a book and it was being published, and she naturally asked me what it was about. When I told her it was a m/m romantic fantasy, she didn’t ask me why I’d chosen to write m/m, like I was expecting, she asked me why I’d chosen to write a romantic fantasy. I’ve always loved reading fantasy and paranormal stories. The…

After Ben by Con Riley

After Ben by Con Riley My rating: 5 of 5 stars Is it possible to love again after the love of your life has died? It’s possible, but it’s not so easy to let go of the past and move beyond the guilt of loving someone new. Theo has lived his life through the scrim of grief since Ben died, but slowly, every slowly, that scrim is being lifted and Theo is able to start living again. But it’s not without it’s trials and struggles. Peter and Morgan, as well as a few others are there to help him along the way. I love the gently unfolding story telling style…
