This week we finished edits on my MM short story Santa for Hire, which will release as part of Dreamspinner Press' 2016 Advent Calendar, Bah Humbug!
My story tells of department store manager Richard Barrett's hatred of Xmas, having been dumped by his cheating ex one Xmas eve. However, that could change with the arrival of the store's new Santa....
There came a loud bang, and the group turned as one to see a rotund, red-and-white-clad figure hurtle out of the staff area, nearly tripping over his robe in his haste. The man skidded to a halt in front of them.
“Shit. Sorry I’m late. Am I late?” He shoved out a hand. “I’m Blaine Ryder. I’m your new Santa.”
For a moment all Richard could do was stare.
