Counter Culture is out in audiobook and I have codes to give away

I’m delighted to say that Counter Culture, my light-hearted rom-com starring a steampunk and a retail worker, is now out in audiobook. And to celebrate, I have FOUR Audible codes to give away!

To be in with a chance of winning a code for a free audiobook, just leave a comment on this post (wherever you see it) with your email address and stating whether you’d prefer a US or a UK code. I’ll make the draw on Sunday 26th July.

ETA: The draw is now closed and winners have been notified by email. Thanks to every one who played!

And here’s a snippet to whet your appetite – here, our heroes have, after many near-misses and mortifying mishaps, actually managed to get together for a cup of tea:

“You know, you’re a lot more normal than I thought you were,” Robin said as they carried the teas to the living room. “Um, that came out sounding wrong.”

Archie laughed and put on a posh voice. “How dare you, sir! Accusing me of normality—the very idea! This means teacups at dawn.”

“It does?”

“Er, that works better if you’ve actually heard of tea duelling.”

“People duel with tea?” Robin’s eyes widened. “I suppose a fresh pot could give you a nasty scalding.”

Counter Culture

Customer service has never been this personal.

Robin Christopher, beleaguered retail worker, isn’t having an easy November. His boss is raising stress levels planning a Black Friday to end all Black Fridays, his family doesn’t understand him, and his best friend thinks his new crush is a hallucination brought on by watching too many episodes of Doctor Who.

Archie Levine dresses in Victorian style and divides his time between caring for his young son and creating weird and wacky steampunk gadgets from bits of old junk—when he’s not looking after his mum and trying to keep on good terms with his ex. The last thing he’s got time for is a relationship, but the flustered young man he met while disembowelling a fridge is proving very tempting.

When his mum’s social conscience is roused by a local store with a cavalier attitude to the homeless, former rough sleeper Archie shares her anger. Little does he know that Robin works for that same store. When Archie finds out he’s sleeping with the enemy, things could cut up very rough indeed.

Available in ebook, paperback and now audiobook: Riptide | Amazon
