London via Antarctica ~ Outside the Margins with Sue Brown

Join Prism Book Alliance® as Sue Brown goes Outside the Margins today.


I’m notoriously late for everything. No matter what my good intentions are, I’m always the last one to arrive at events. I always used to be early but the Internet is my downfall. Just one more click, and one more post.

Last week I got my act together. I had to meet the shiMMer girls in town for a meeting about the book signing. I checked the trains. There were issues but my train was fine. I arranged to meet Clare London at Waterloo station, and I left half an hour early so I could walk to the station instead of driving as I fancied a glass of wine.

I left 30 minutes early…

  • Five minutes into the walk it rained. Not just a light drizzle, but a soak through in one minute to your skin. I was wet from neck to feet. The only part of me was dry because I wore a hood and a beanie.
  • I squelched into the station to buy my ticket. I bought the wrong ticket and had to buy it again.
  • I got to platform 4 to discover my train was cancelled. As were all the later trains.

I was…  a word I won’t use here.

Luckily there was a train standing on another platform, going to Victoria. Now this train is one I avoid like the plague. It takes twice as long as the Waterloo train. If you can imagine, it goes across south London, via Antarctica, and finally into London. There was no heating on the train so I was a little icicle by the time I arrived.

I arrived 30 minutes late. I guess leaving early was a good thing!

The good thing was I ordered my dinner via Whatsapp. I had the best lasagne I’ve had in a very long time and a lot of wine! Also dessert as you can see, with my partners-in-crime, Suzanne Burke and Fiona Rachel Warner.

It may be a while before I try to be that organised again. I’ve decided I am destined to be late.

Have you signed up for shiMMer yet? The sign-up form is here for readers and authors.

Author: Sue Brown
Publisher: Self Published

Cover Artist: Garrett Leigh
Genre: Gay Romance


Jake Tyler walked out of Covert Ops two years ago, a devastated, broken man after he discovered his sister brutally murdered by her husband, Riley. Since then he’s found a kind of peace running a rural bar. The last thing Jake Tyler expects is his former team to turn up with grim news. Jake’s ex-brother-in-law has escaped from prison and is heading Jake’s way. The team is here to protect Jake, whether he likes it or not – a decision reluctantly shared by their leader, Jake’s ex-lover Mitch Mitchelson.

Mitch is angry and hurting. The man he trusted – the man he adored more than anything – abandoned both his team and Mitch. Jake never gave Mitch a chance to help or come to terms with his desertion. Regardless of mission protocols, Mitch isn’t about to open his heart again to that kind of pain.

But the strong attraction between them can’t be denied. How are they ever going to work together when Mitch still resents Jake’s disappearance, and to Jake, the team represents everything that destroyed him in the first place? And meantime they wait for Riley to find them… and to settle the threat once and for all.
