Spring is in the air and I am thrilled to announce the release of the second volume of the Gratis Anthology series after the well-received Gratis: Midwinter Tales, published in December last year.
Gratis 2: Gratis Harder
Just kidding, it’s actually called Gratis: New Beginnings and features themes of rejuvenation, redemption and personal growth.
I have contributed a brand new piece, ‘countdown‘ which is a sequel of sorts to ‘White (Lights Out)‘ from the previous volume but I think it works as a stand alone piece too. Here is a brief blurb:
If you catch me, you can have me: a bewitching call that sends Dave in pursuit of a gorgeous brunette. A journey of twists, turns and raw sexuality that seems destined to end, dashed by its illicit nature. Racing against time and circumstance, does the onset of Spring promise the prospect of love?
It’s been my pleasure to work with the 9 fantastic authors featured in this book, all of whom I highly recommend. Following are descriptions of their pieces to whet the appetite. To find out more about each contributor and get your hands on their Art, click on the name:
