not so much double, as simply entendre

from “I Knew Him”

He turned the radiance of that brilliant smile around to Stevie. “Stevie, do you want to come?”

“Oh, God no,” she said. “Don’t get me involved in your excursions.”

“Oh Stevie,” Margaret said. “You really should. You don’t get out half enough. And someone needs to keep them in check or the next thing we’ll hear of them is being thrown into some Italian jail or worse.”

She rolled her eyes. “Oh, all right. But only if I’m promised dinner at The Metropole. And I don’t have to go and look at any horses, or stamp sods back in place.”

“Divots,” I said with mock sternness. “The word is divots.”

“I know what the word is,” she said with a saccharine smile. Claude looked thunderous, but the exchange seemed to have passed Margaret by entirely.

  1. First, congrats on your latest release, A Brush with Darkness, and your review for Mere Mortals! I’ve been keeping up with online news but have been somewhat hiding away from social media in an attempt to get some writing done. It’s a little slow going, but getting there. I’m really looking forward to I Knew Him! 1920s England, right up my alley! I’ve really enjoyed the little snippets of it you’ve put up. Hope you feel better soon and the petrol shenanigans don’t effect you too much. Here the price just keeps going up, yet somehow more and more cars appear on the road. Hm.

    I haven’t forgotten about the interview I mentioned either. I’ve been trying to put together some questions that aren’t the usual and more focused toward the Historical MM genre. Anyway, I’ll let you get back to your divots. ^__^

    Thank you! I hope that people like it – although it is essentially a re-release, no one bought it before!

    Glad to hear you are writing, we definitely need more from you!

  3. I’m sure they will! I think with MM Romance growing the way it is, that Historical MM Romance will get the chance to step into the spotlight a little more. I don’t think it really gets the attention it deserves, compared to other genres like Contemporary, Paranormal, Shifters and such. I don’t know if it’s because there are fewer authors in our genre, or maybe because a lot of you guys are in the UK? (I know when I lived there, I sort of felt a little cut off from the US, and the time difference didn’t help) I’ll drop you an email so I don’t take up your whole page with my ramblings. lol.

    Thank you! That’s very kind of you to say! Definitely writing, though it’s going a little slower than I’d like. Someone said it was the post-published blues. lol. I had no idea that was even a thing! The ideas are all there, dialogue, scenes and everything. It’s getting the words from inside my head out. Bruce is being very demanding, which is good, because the only way to get him to shut up is to write about him. I think I’m just trying to find my groove. I used to get loads of writing done on the tube of all places! (with headphones of course) It’s picking up a bit now, so I think it’s coming back! :D
