Please Excuse Me While I Hibernate!

I’m not a fan of this time of year. Where I live, in the UK, it gets dark around 5pm, it’s cold and often rainy and windy. Granted, there are some beautiful, crisp days, but they’re so short that there’s barely any time to enjoy them. Dark mornings and nights make it harder for me to get out of bed, and want to crawl back into it at about 7pm (it’d be earlier, but I won’t miss dinner! 😉 ). Really, what I’d love to do is hibernate. I’d miss the short days, save a fortune on Christmas presents, and never have to see frost, ice and snow. How wonderful!

At the risk of sounding like a total grump, there are benefits to November. The colours of the leaves on the trees (and on the ground!) are beautiful. Cold, wet, short days do not make me want to bunk off and go out somewhere, or take the dog for a long walk. They don’t make me stare wistfully out of the window, wishing I wasn’t working. Therefore I do tend to knuckle down and get on with things more. Especially writing. So, although I’m not taking part in NaNoWriMo (I just write what I can, when I can – guaranteed money jobs have to come first!), November tends to be a pretty good month for me in terms of word count. Which will come in handy as I have a novel to finish, and a couple of deadlines. So, wish me luck!

Wrap up warm everyone, and happy reading! 😀

No Boys AllowedThree sexy Sapphic tales from the pen of Lucy Felthouse:

No Boys Allowed
When Leigh goes to meet with some potential housemates in a sought-after part of London, all she’s interested in is making a good impression. The last thing she’s expecting is to find out that one of the girls is a lesbian, like her. Kacey’s not home yet, but when she arrives, Leigh knows one thing for sure: she’s smitten. But will her feelings be reciprocated?

Something in Common
Nerd and amateur photographer Justine is partaking of one of her favourite pastimes—visiting a historical site—when she bumps into Amber. It turns out they’re both equally enthusiastic about exploring stately homes, abbeys, stone circles and the like—and their surprise at meeting someone with similar interests leads them on another adventure together, which doesn’t end at the site.

Little Miss Goody Two Shoes
Izzy and her girlfriend are visiting a beautiful stately home in the British countryside. Taking a stroll around the garden, Izzy’s shocked to see a statue of a female—totally naked. Her girlfriend, astounded that Izzy is such a prude and a Little Miss Goody Two Shoes, proceeds to show her just what fun can be had in a country garden with a statue to hide them from prying eyes.

  1. (((huggles))) I remember how much this time of the year sucks in the UK! I think a lot of folks suffer from S.A.D. without evening knowing it. Constant grey skies and more or less every time you go out, you end up soggy and damp. BUT on the bonus side to that, rainy, grey days do make for good word count. Well, they do for me 😉 Because I’d rather stay in and create a much better world in my imagination than glance out the window to see miserable weather.
    Hang in there, Lucy, the season will fly by if you keep busy with all those projects you’ve got going on xxx And you’ve always got the Avengers to snuggle in with on bad days! hehe

  2. I love cold days… if I’m inside. An overcast cool day makes me want to go walking on the beach with my dog, but wind and rain make me want to hole up and write and drink hot chocolate by the fireplace (even if I no longer have a house with a fireplace, dammit!).
