No Capes!

As this year's Giftmas Blog Tour moves closer to its conclusion (just one more day to go), this is the opportunity to learn of the contributors' unsung heroes.

No Capes! explores what has made Christmas special for many of the writers. In J.S.'s case it was an unexpected visit by the London Ambulance Service.

Two Blog Posts for the Price of One

J.S. has volunteered to write two posts for the Giftmas Blog Tour 2017, which is raising funds for the Edmonton Food Bank (that’s Edmonton, Canada if you are reading this in the UK). The link to the fundraiser is here

The second of her two posts, Shining Lights - Part II, has now been published as part of a blog swap on Rhonda Parrish's blog. It includes a seasonal poem from J.S.

Rhonda's guest post, The Opposite of Light, has been published on J.S.'s Goodreads Blog and you can read it for free here. It includes a seasonal piece of flash fiction from Rhonda.

So, two blogs, two creative pieces and all for free (you might even be able to spare a few coppers for the fundraiser??)

Release the Kraken!

J.S. is delighted that her poem "Five Fathoms Down" is featured in the new Lies, Dreaming podcast, Release the Kraken!

You should really listen to the whole podcast (it is excellent), but if you are so eager to hear J.S. reading her poem that you can't wait, you can find her reading around 3.18 minutes in.



Why I Give and What I Celebrate

Giftmas 2017, the blog tour, is up and running.

The posts for 5th and 6th December have allowed contributors to ruminate on why they give to charities and how they actually celebrate the midwinter festival.

So if you want to know why a group of writers, including J.S., are contributing to Giftmas 2017, you can find out here: http://www.rhondaparrish.com/giftmas-2017-why-i-give/

Alternatively (or in addition, if you are so minded) you can find out how they celebrate Chirstmas here: http://www.rhondaparrish.com/giftmas-2017-what-i-celebrate/
