It’s 25th November so we are exactly one month away from Christmas. My Santa beard is doing well and Next week we start raiding the Advent Calendars. Now is a good time to download some great seasonal stories to curl up with on a cold winter’s evening or at the end of hectic days over Christmas. This year thanks to my awesome publishers Dreamspinner Press I have two very different seasonal stories to share.
Diary Dates is already available and tells of a random meeting which develops during the run up to Christmas into a passionate relationship.
Dear Santa Dear Dad will be released 14th December and tells the tale of two very different relationships. One is the Father seeking reconciliation with the son he rejected some years before. The other is the son’s loving relationship with his devoted older lover. This is a great feel-good seasonal story with a real happy ever after ending.
Two days before Christmas, widower Steven drives to the North of England to meet his estranged son Andy, hoping for a reconciliation. Steven rejected his son when, as a nineteen-year-old student, Andy came out to his parents. Andy now enjoys a happy and fulfilling relationship with Peter, who initiates contact with Steven by forwarding an almost childlike letter to Santa, in which Andy asks for a father who loves him.
Andy isn’t quick to forgive his father, but the bad weather conspires to strand them all together over the holidays. Father and son experience a steep learning curve, not helped by Steven’s realization that his son’s lover is older than he is. But proximity and familiarity have a way of breaking down barriers, and if all three men can work together in the spirit of cooperation, this Christmas might be one that changes their lives forever.
