Rainbow Snippets – 16.01.16


Today’s snippet is from my short story, Something Beginning With ‘V’ which is going to be available from Love Lane Books on 12th Febuary, in their Valentine Delights anthology. I’m fricken excited as it’ll be my first published thingy. I’m really trying to be cool about the whole thing, but yeah…like I said. Excited : )
