Day 1 - RJ Scott
And behind today's door…
You always knew I'd be on day1!
I love Christmas – from music to gift-giving to all the wonderful Christmas books and movies. I particularly love the build-up to Christmas – more so than the actual day itself.
Crepe Paper always brings back memories. A couple of days before Christmas mum and dad would remove all the ornaments and so on from our large sideboard and then would put down swathes of this soft crinkly paper in all different colors. Then on top of that would go Christmas nuts and sweets and some decorations. This to a young kid was Christmas heaven!
When we woke up in the morning we would have a pillowcase at the end of the bed, normally with a Rupert annual and bits and pieces from Avon like talc (Brits will get both these references).
Christmas TV was a high point in our house when I was a kid. Not so much now. Back when I was little we only had a couple of TV channels and there was always the afternoon film (after the Queen’s speech). I remember the excitement when one of the channels showed Star Wars. Then there was Morecombe and Wise, The Bond film, and The Coronation Street Christmas episode. Oh, and which Brit here recalls Angie being served the divorce papers by Den in Eastenders!!!? ROFL.
I'm looking forward to sharing the advent countdown with…

This year's Christmas Release – coming 10 December
It takes an impossible Christmas wish for Bailey to find forever love with his brother’s best friend.
Turning twenty-five and still a virgin, Bailey has barely dated, let alone acted on the private fantasies featuring his brother’s best friend, newly retired hockey star, Kai. All he wants is for Kai to love him, but after a summer when Kai’s anger drove them apart, love doesn’t seem possible at all.
When Kai goes home to Wishing Tree, he knows he owes everyone an apology, not least of all to the man he loves. He’s convinced he can be the man Bailey deserves, and he needs to show Bailey how much he’s changed.
The only problem? Bailey has secrets he’s scared will drive Kai away, and Kai is running out of time to convince Bailey that falling in love starts with a wish, and can end up in forever.
The Wishing Tree is a standalone small-town Christmas MM romance with perfect snow, twinkling lights, a first real kiss, a shy virgin with a silken kink, a retired hockey player, and all the Christmas feels.More info →
