…Christmas joint blog tour and giveaways… O come all ye faithful readers…

Come one, come all, Free giveaways from a select group of your favourite authors

Join us Across the Globe in this Christmas Around the World Giveaway.

…giving is a global tradition, regardless of where you may be at Christmas time… I have spent the last almost 50 years away from my home country of Scotland, but the memories remain constant, and are the same traditions that my main character Jack Calder would have known as a child in Docklands, Govan in Glasgow… New Year in Scotland is traditionally the time when the adults celebrate, and Lordie, they know how to do that in Govan, but Christmas is always for the children… hanging stockings up by the fireplace and writing notes to Santa were mandatory, plus leaving a sandwich and maybe a bottle of beer for him, were also great traditions… wherever you may be on the planet for Christmas Day and every day, have a peaceful and healthy one!… LUV YEEZ!

Join us for an incredible journey around the world through the eyes of our authors and their protagonists starting in WWII Holland and continuing from to the Middle East over to Hong Kong, through the hills of Pennsylvania and deserts of Mexico, ending back in time in eighteenth century London. We are excited to share with you our own holiday traditions and what life was like for the characters featured in our books.
