Coincidentally, it's also International Short Story Day

Today is International Short Story Day, apparently. What better time to launch a new short story then?

Cold is published today, exclusively available through the Amazon Kindle Store (at first, at least). It's a short, dark tale of what happens when a woman breaks her own rules about office relationships and married men. When she realises she can't get her man back she decides to get even instead. So begins her thirst for revenge... and as we all know, revenge is a dish best served cold.

Cold is available right about now, on and - please do read and enjoy!

So what do you think?

Alongside the never-ending novel-in-waiting, I've been working on a short story lately entitled Cold. It's nearly ready to go, and will be coming to a Kindle near you soon. Maybe other formats and outlets too, I haven't decided yet.

But anyway. Have I mentioned before that I do my own covers? I have a lot of fun with these - whilst it's safe to say I'm no graphic artist or designer, it's amazing what can be achieved with some free software, royalty-free stock images and an understanding of layers.

Here's what I'm thinking of going with for Cold. What do you think?
