My collection of Christmas-themed, dark short stories – Ghosts of Christmas Past – is currently part of a giveaway: Christmas in July.

(Yeah, I know – we’re in the midst of one of the best British summers I can remember since 1976, the sun is scorching, our ancient fridge is struggling to cope with the heat  and the grass on my lawn is turning to straw, yet here I am mentioning Christmas.)

There are 18 or so books available for free download, here.

Pop along and grab yourself a slice of winter as an antidote to this relentless heat.
