Golden Hair

Adam: great writer. I always look forward to his short stories. In fact, when I get a text asking if I could take a look at something because he wants a second opinion, I actually get really excited.
He is the only WP peep I’ve met in “real life” because we used to live in the same city (he’s now moved away, Boo Hiss) and that connection we first had online turned out to be absolutely fucking perfect when we finally met. We had drinks & spent the night talking about *everything* and it was brilliant. As it happens, I produced some good writes-up after our encounters so he’s clearly inspirational too.
Do please read this: I’ve been meaning to feature Adam on my blog for ages 💜

    1. I’m so pleased we did meet. I just wish we hadn’t both been so cautious and waited that long to do so lol
      You’re brilliant, “mate” (😉) and I know I’ll be buying your books some day. I can’t wait for our “reunion” either — same pub, right? We can get thrown out of it again in shock that it’s closing time already and go in search of another place that’s still opened 😉 (without the torrential rain next time I hope!)

      1. We did let our shyness get in the way, didn’t we? Bloody introverts! -shakes fist- Haha yeah, the time FLEW by! Looking forward to another one, and yes, preferrably without the soggy bottoms! 😂


  2. Trying very hard to be magnanimous…. okay, I will read it as I am not that familiar with his work and he comes with high recommendation. I wish he would have picked brunette or some other color 😉
