NEW RELEASE! A Pre-Date Encounter & Giveaway!

Published January 6, 2013 by ellenheights

Finally, my sparkle story A Pre-Date Encounter has been released! To celebrate, I’m giving away TWO books to TWO winners! Leave a comment to be entered, and you can get A Pre-Date Encounter and Three Men and a Christmas Goddess for free!

I shall dub today Snippet Sunday! Here’s a sneak-peak at what’s to come:
















Copyright Ellen Heights 2013, A Pre-Date Encounter.

When I got home from work, I flicked on the light and dumped my bags by the door. I took a quick shower, and at eleven thirty, stuck noodles in the microwave before eating them over the sideboard. Tonight had been a late one at work, and I was ready to settle in for the evening. Being twenty-two, this was my first “real” job with a publishing company on Baker Street, and I’d been trying to make a good impression.

I checked my phone and, unsurprisingly, there were no texts other than the one yesterday from my service provider. I threw the phone on my lumpy couch, then went to the kitchen and tossed my empty bowl in the sink. Fuck men, I thought; who needed call backs anyway?

I kicked off my comfortable work shoes then tugged off my blouse and vest before peeling off my tights and slipping my skirt down. I put on my old Iron Maiden T-shirt and slipped into bed, grateful for the cool sheets against my skin after a long, hard day. I’d been packing up mail to send out for marketing purposes, and I’d given myself more paper-cuts than I had gotten as a child making Christmas cards.

It began to rain. Soon the wind picked up and rattled my little single-glazed window. I stared into the blackness, seeing only the reflection of myself and a mirror-world version of my room. I admired my long hair and combed my fingers through it, rain pattering against my reflected face like teardrops.

Suddenly a thought came to me, causing my heart leap and begin thumping hard. I hadn’t checked my emails. Sitting on the bed, I flipped open my laptop, logged into my email account, and, as if in answer to a wish, one was waiting for me.

It was from the dating site.

I was a little dissatisfied with the male sex right now, so I’d figured I’d try a new strategy. This dating site was my solution, I was sure of it.

I’d loved scrolling through profile after profile, picking and choosing the men who attracted me. This stuff was like a catalogue arranged just for me.

Better still, it was full of the type of men I was most interested in–older men.

I sucked in a deep breath, tucked my hair behind my ears, and clicked open the email. It was the guy I was really hoping to hear back from. His email said:

Hi Amy!

Thank you for your message. I’m flattered you wanted to talk to me. To answer your first question, yes, I do have some pretty appalling tastes in music. I apologise for writing the names Black Sabbath and Fleetwood Mac together on the same page; it was naughty of me. Hopefully you can forgive me.

To answer your second question, the answer is yes: I’d love to meet up with you.

So, Amy, here’s the real question: How’s tomorrow for you?

I let out a little squeal of delight as I read it. Tomorrow, he’d said! So he was mature, funny, decisive, and prompt. So far, so perfect.

So I thought a good way to start off the new year would be to announce that my latest Ebook, A Pre-Date Encounter, will be launched by Silver Publishing on January 5th! That’s two days away!

You may also know that during the December period, Three Men and a Christmas Goddess was released, where hundreds of readers participated in the holiday scavenger hunt to win copies of all the books in Silver’s Let it Snow.

Well now I’m giving you the chance to win not just one, but TWO ebooks! I have two of each to give away, so don’t miss out! That’s two books and two winners.
