Boyfriend Season now available on the Kindle

‘”Autumn is boyfriend season. With the nights drawing in and the weather getting worse it’s the right time to have a man to keep you warm and stuff.”

I was with Lauren and Vanessa, a few pints into the night somewhere in Didsbury, when Lauren had dropped this concept into the conversation.

“And in Spring you can dump them because there’s so much else to do.” Vanessa added.

I think I did a guppy impersonation for a while. It was only later that I thought that men are at their horniest in Spring. It’s all sunny and the serotonin levels are rising again. I’d probably have been told that that’s just the way it goes.’

James is looking for love, so it’s good that the season’s turned and the girls are hunting boyfriends. A short romantic comedy about speed dating, blogging and drinking after work. Also includes How Deep Is Your Love? Find out what happened to James next.

Boyfriend Season, with How Deep Is Your Love? as its B-side, is now available for the Kindle. Buy it in the UK Kindle shop or the US Kindle shop.

I’m going to collect a load of short stories soon. However, Boyfriend Season/How Deep Is Your Love? are very different to all the other shorts I’ve written, so it seemed right to publish them separately. Also, as BS is set in Autumn, I thought it would be a good idea to get it out there just after the seasons turned.
