What reviewers are saying:

This story is a beautiful dollop of festive joy! I loved everything about this. Beth Laycock’s writing style is engaging and immersive–now I want to visit Spain–and her characterizations had me rooting for both MCs from the very start. Alex and Levi are both so sweet and genuine. My heart is so warmed. This is the perfect feel good holiday romance!”  Goodreads review

“Words can’t say how much I loved this story!

This story is so real and heartwarming, I fell for the characters almost instantly. Beth’s writing style is authentic, deep and endearing. She has set a scene that could be straight out of real like, in all its imperfect glory.

This story follows a troubled and lonely Levi who is accidentally abandoned at his brothers house; alone for the New Year. He is a bit lost and lonely but pushes himself to talk to a wonderfully handsome cafe owner, Alex and sparks ensue. Add in an adorably innocent little girl and you have the makings of a holiday themed treat!

This story is about finding inspiration in unlikely places, pushing past insecurities to have a chance at creating a family you’ve always wanted and finding the person you were meant to be with. This story is loving, short and sweet and will leave you with all the feels of a wonderful holiday romance!!! Highly recommended read 💖💘💕”  Amazon review

MiracleOnThreeKingsDayFS_v1Levi’s family knows he needs to find a way out of his funk and be a part of the world again. His brother, Jesse, invites Levi to join him in sunny Spain for the holidays, but a delay at the airport finds Levi at Jesse’s home while his brother is stranded in Scotland. Luckily Alejandro—Alex—is on hand with a key, a friendly smile, and a willingness to keep Levi company. He might even manage to draw Levi out of his shell for some mutual flirting.

Levi surprises himself when he accepts an invitation to spend New Year’s Eve with Alex at Alex’s café, but is he ready for more when it means jumping back into life feetfirst? Besides, with an ocean between them and Alex hiding a part of his life that Levi isn’t sure he can handle, they’ll need their own Three Kings’ Day miracle to stay together.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2018 Advent Calendar “Warmest Wishes.”

Until next time,

Happy reading!

Writer’s Block – A Myth?

IMG_0889

Up until last year I wasn’t convinced writer’s block even existed. But there I was in November happily outlining the novella I’d wanted to write for years. I had a beautiful outline, excel spreadsheet – the works. The problem? Zero motivation to write the story. No idea how to start. My characters would not talk to me. So I put it to one side thinking I’ll come back to it later.

 

 

And I started plotting again — * insert evil laugh*  This time my muse took me to Pendle Hill in Lancashire and the witch trials. A shifter story of sorts. I started writing – fantastic. The words were flowing until I hit the halfway mark and stopped dead. My two main characters had been thrust together, but now they were apart, and I had no idea how to get them back together on the page. But, but I’d plotted the story…
Then came 2018 and a move across the continent back to the UK. Once settled into the new house I thought I’d pick up the story again. Nope. Then somehow I stumbled across a submission call on Dreamspinner’s website. No, I couldn’t write for them the little voices of doubt told me, I was just me scribbling away on an iPad in the spare bedroom. But a story idea sparked. I’d just left Spain, just seen my village’s Three Kings’ Day
parade so, why not? I decided to write the story. Told myself I’d decide whether to submit it or not after – just write it. Oh, the joy of flowing words. And then I edited it. And then it was decision time. And I thought the worst they can say is no! Fast forward to the 19th June, and I cried when I received their acceptance e-mail. Me, Beth Laycock, was going to be a published author with Dreamspinner Press!! Fast forward to present day, and it’s less than a month until my debut story is let loose.
