Emma Calin Launches Love in a Hopeless Place Collection!

Today I have the absolute pleasure of hosting fellow author at and uber-talented, prolific author, Emma Calin, to my blog. Take it away, Emma!
Thank you Sheryl for letting me visit your blog to 'Blow my own trombone' for the launch of my new boxed-set the 'Love in a Hopeless Place Collection'.  Here it is... from the heat of a sunny bandstand last Sunday, a performance of Eidelweiss (can you spot me?).

(For the second half of the tune... jump forward to the 22nd July with Melanie Robertson-King.)
The 'Love in a Hopeless Place Collection' is a set of five of my stand-alone titles amalgamated into one. A bargain way for you to get your hands on my gritty tales-with-a-twist.  Initially available for e-books (Kindle, iPad, Android, iPhone, Mac, PC etc on Amazon), the paperback will follow and an audiobook is in production as we speak (literally – although the recording studio is just too hot and stuffy at the moment!).
The five titles in the collection are all novelettes or short stories.  They stand alone in their own right but are linked by a common theme:  the universal quest for survival, love, passion and respect against the gritty backdrop of working class life. 

Sub-Prime  - a gritty short story
The Chosen  - a short story with a twist
Escape To Love – a novelette, a suspense romance with a twist
Angela  - a short story
Love in a Hopeless Place  - a novelette, a romance.
During July and August 'ANGELA' the short story from the collection is FREE – so you can even try one before you buy the set!
I would like to thank Sheryl for having me on her blog as part of my 'Blowing My Own Trombone Book Launch Blog Tour'.  If you would like to find out more about the books in my collection, see some excerpts and even hear me play the trombone.... (yes really!) I will be guesting at the following blogs during July:
17th July Anneli Purchase
20th July Sheryl Browne
21st July Nicky Wells
26th July Patricia Sands
