Published: Christmas in Knavesborough

I found it difficult to figure out when was the best time to publish my collection of Christmas stories so the other day I just went ahead and did it. No more procrastination.

Christmas in Knavesborough

Four Christmas crime stories featuring the Gershwin family and Constable Penrose. The humorous and cosy tales take place in the fictional village of Knavesborough, Yorkshire. Light entertainment for readers who prefer their Christmas dinner with solid doses of crime and humour. 8,000 words in all.  

The stories can be read on their own, but they are actually prequels to the novel “The Cosy Knave”, published earlier in 2011. So for fans of this writer, the collection offers plenty of opportunity to meet up with old friends from Knavesborough. Meet Rhapsody Gershwin as a teenager, surrounded by her bustling family in the vicarage, Constable Penrose on his first serious case, plus the grumpy Kickinbottoms and the knitting club conspirators.


And I know that earlier I have asked friends to buy via Smashwords – but not this time. I have learnt that visibility on Amazon is quite important 😉
