Announcement from Linda T. Smith
LT Smith here, otherwise known as fingersmith.
I have a short story just released called Forget Me Not - a story that is not only a Halloween tale but also something very personal to me. I believe this story will hit home to many of you out there, too. Well, that's what I'm hoping.
This is a little more than usual Halloween tale as all profits made from the sales of this 46 page story will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society, a charity that I believe needs more donations and recognition for all the work and research they do.
Whilst I have your ear (you know what I mean), could I say a huge thank you to Astrid and the guys at Ylva for donating their time and effort in this story for no monetary gain? Fantastic people with hearts of gold. Every penny made will help improve the lives of others, something I am so happy we can do.
Finally, thank you for reading this, and also thank you for supporting us writers. Where would we be without you?
Forget Me Not can be found at Amazon and Smashwords.
Big thumbs up.

Bitter Fruit began life many years ago as a novella called The Lion and the Lamb . This year I tore it apart, rewrote and expanded on it, and it grew into Bitter Fruit . If you're looking for a romance to keep you company as the days grow shorter, this may be the one for you.
Fuelled by booze and boredom, Jac Lanier accepts an unusual wager from her best friend. Victoria, for reasons of her own, impulsively challenges Jac to seduce Lauren, her co-worker and a young woman Jac's never met. Under the terms of their bet, Jac has exactly one month to get Lauren into bed or she has to pay up. Though Lauren is straight and engaged, Jac begins her campaign confident that she'll win the bet. But Jac's forgotten that if you sow an onion seed, you won't harvest a peach. When her plan goes awry, will she reap the bitter fruit of her deception? Or will Lauren turn the tables on the thoughtless gamblers?
