Two New Free Stories on Darkness & Good

I forgot to post about last week’s one because I’d scheduled it as a filler, not in my regular week – so if you haven’t seen it yet, that means you get two for the price of one (click) today! Woot woo!

Today’s new addition is part 8 of the League of Absolutely Ordinary Superheroes (parts 1 – 7 are linked to at the top).

Last week’s was a contemporary short story called The Remarkable Insight of Jellybeans. If you ever read my short story collection Cherry Blossom before it was out of print (though I do have a very limited number of paperbacks left), you’ll recognise this one, but if not, then awesome! Now you get to read it for free! 🙂

Hope you have a fabulous day 🙂

Over 40 Free Stories! An Anthology of Stories for Teen Readers

YOU GUYS IT’S NEARLY HOLIDAYS. This, my friends, is a Very Exciting Thing. It also means that hopefully you’ll get some more regularly scheduled blogging – and I’m going to do my level best to set up some sort of blogging system that will work to keep things happening regularly throughout 2017, I promise >.<


First of all, I have another short up on the Darkness&Good blog this week. It’s an extract from my work in progress, Fox Red. If you’re following along on social media, this is #FoxBook, and the reason I’m sharing an extract with you is…



The first part of Fox Red is being included in this fantastic anthology of sff YA stories! You can find this awesome anthology of stories for teens on Amazon here, and it’ll be available across all other retailers within the next week or so too. NOTE: It’s 99c at the moment, but if you wait a week or so for the price matching to kick in, it’ll be perma-free 😉 I’ll remind you about it again once that’s happened, so if you want to wait until then, go for it 🙂

The section of Fox Red that I’m sharing on Darkness&Good is NOT included in the That Moment When anthology, so you get bonus bits of story (woohoo!). And if you like what you see, make sure to head over to my Fox Red page for updates on the story and related things like inspiration images and music 🙂

9 days till holidays. See you on the other side.
