UK Meet Blog Story Part the Fourth

June Banner

Hurrah! It’s my turn up on the UK Meet Blog, with the fourth thrilling instalment of the UK Meet organisers’ campfire tale!

Here’s Liam’s introduction to it all:
"This is a blog story the five Spice Girls organisers of UK Meet are writing together. I shamelessly stole this idea from the Festival of Romance where they explained it was taken from the tradition of telling stories around a camp fire. This may be a mess as we all write very differently, but I’m hoping it’s a bit of fun. Do please share this by RTing, facebooking, blogging to spread the word to other writers and readers about UK Meet 2014 in Bristol."

You can find my chapter on the UK Meet Blog here: (you’ll find links to previous chapters there too)

but before you go, here are a few terms non-UK peeps might possibly find useful!

Summat: Something

Ginnel: Dark, narrow passage; penetrate at own risk (Oo-er!)

Go to the foot of our stairs!: Gosh! I am surprised.

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:
