Well, here we are. My first post on WordPress.
I’ve been off work sick all week and have been getting increasingly frustrated at not feeling up to doing anything, but I’ve finally got this up and running.
I’ll start with some art, how about that? My story, Come Underground, is out soon in the following anthologies from Xcite. ‘Watching Me, Watching You’ is the full anthology and ”Your Ultimate Fantasy’ is the mini anthology. It’s a fabulous anthology, edited by the lovely Gwennan Thomas. So if you fancy a bit of voyeuristic fun, what are you waiting for? The mini e-book is live on Kindle and the full anthology is ready for pre-order now from Xcite.
Here’s a little taster to whet your appetites:
The train starts again. My gaze turns to the remaining occupants of the carriage.
Further along is a guy of about 30, vaguely scanning the Evening Standard with his vividly blue eyes. His dark blond hair keeps falling rebelliously in front of his face and his gorgeous upper body is concealed only by a tight Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirt. Two seats away is an older man, mid-forties maybe, but with an elegant distinction which tightens my belly. He scrutinises the Financial Times as if his future depends on it. His suit is clearly tailored and his black shoes, so highly polished I could do my eye-liner in them, reflect the bright lights.
Judder and swish. The train continues along the track. Judder and swish. Expectation hangs thick in the air. The hip hop guy with the headphones opens his eyes briefly and meets mine before retreating back to his music.
Again, at the next station, the doors fail to open. It’s just the six of us, five men and me, and it will stay this way for the duration of the journey. That’s the deal. That’s the arrangement. It helps to have friends in high places.
Looking forward to blogging with you all! D. x
