It’s time to look back over the month, but you know what? I don’t want to. It’s been a horrible month and I want to create as much distance between me and it as possible. All I’ll say is I’m going to be a lot more careful how I use the phrase it can’t get any worse, surely from now on.
I’m going to share the latest Grace & Serenity offer with you. I know… I’ve been throwing lots of offers and giveaways at you over the last few weeks, how much more can there be??
Well, my publisher has created some fantastic bundles of their latest for the 2020 holiday season – stretching from now right up to Christmas!
I recently read them both, so if you click on the book titles above you’ll be whisked off to my review of them on Goodreads. (Spoiler: I loved both of them!)
Also (because, yes, there’s more) you can browse the other bundles by other amazing Vine Leaves Press authors here.
There’s an Australian-themed bundle, a memoir bundle, and a poetry one too – so we’ve pretty much catered for everyone!
Socks for Christmas
My long-suffering character, Grace (also available here) is homeless for a while, and this fantastic charity popped up in my Facebook feed recently.
Stand4Socks aims to give 1 pair of socks to a homeless shelter for every pair you buy from them. In their own words:
‘Socks are the most requested item by homeless shelters’
This is because socks are rarely donated, as a wear through item, unlike how we donate money, coffee or old coats – you wouldn’t donate your old smelly hole socks. Yet if you are homeless, you tend to walk more than average person and don’t have luxury of fresh socks. Leading to lots of serious foot health issues, for something as simple a pair of socks. That’s why we donate a pair for each one you buy.
Stand 4 Socks
What’s really cool right now is they have limited editions of City Skyline designs featuring major British cities, including Plymouth where Grace & Serenity is set.
If you’re in the market for new socks (doesn’t everyone deserve a new pair for Christmas) please consider buying from this very worthwhile charity.
