By far my most successful short story has to be “Tea”, as it has been downloaded from Amazon just under 1’000 times around the world including USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, Australia and India.
For 4 days in Nov 13 it held the No. 1 position in Free > Fiction > Short Stories in Japan (sold through Amazon)
For 2 days in Oct 14 it held the No.1 position in Free> Kindle Store > Books > Gay & Lesbian > Fiction > Horror in the UK (Sold through Amazon)
And currently its No. 11, in the UK, in the Amazon charts for Kindle Store > Books > Gay & Lesbian > Fiction > Horror
This most unusual short story always has the ability to confound me, as I am no too sure why it is so popular!
So what is it about? Simply put, the story of ‘Tea’ is about a six hundred year old werewolf having tea with a seventy year old gay tailor. However, that is just the story it’s not what the book is about
The book is about – Being old, living with the choices you make through your life, unusual friendships, family, being brave, hiding what you are from the world and loneliness.
So if you fancy something slightly different to read, why not try “Tea” you can read the first few pages for free on Amazon and make up your mind after that.
As always Saskia created a wonderful book cover
‘Tea’ is part of ‘The Storm Series’ set of books, which currently include a trilogy, three books of short stories and a number of promo stories. The ‘Storm Series is an adult, bittersweet, dark fantasy series that deals with relationships, loss, power, prejudice and ultimately, the true ‘monster’ that lurks inside of us.
