A Shire Romance

ASRimgA Shire Romance was the first full-length novel I ever wrote, clocking in at a modest 75,000 or so words. It was badly edited, but I managed to fob it off on a bunch of colleagues and friends who all liked the story, so I figured I’d share it here with a (possibly) larger audience. I am cleaning it up as I go through it, so the editing will be better this time round, though it will still be a rough and ready version.

I’ve always summarised this story to people as Mills & Boon with a hobbit twist (for American readers that should say Harlequin with a hobbit twist). If you like it, please leave a comment or (even better) share it with your friends. This story will remain completely free.
