The Launch of The Big Event

Updated: Jan 20, 2019

Hello everyone! I would like to announce that I have a short story series coming out on the 30th of November. The first part is called The Big Event and it features Constance Jeffries and friends; Estelle, Henry, Stan and Karmel. These five friends have been very active in the virtual world of social media but have never met in person, until one night, they all agree to attend the party of the season and Constance has high hopes to get to know them all.


Story Blurb


Constance believes she knows her online friends very well. Or does she? After all it’s been five years of tweeting and sharing information. So by now she certainly feels a bond.

Finally getting the chance to meet her friends: Stan, Karmel, Henry, Jagger and Estelle, at a glitzy party at The Dorchester hotel with a bag full of gifts and a smile, she’s excited to surprise them all and catch up in person.

But as she makes her way around the music-and-laughter filled venue, and meets each friend, she realises their online personas fail to match up with who they say they really are. And not only that, she discovers a few things about herself in the most surprising of ways.

The Big Event is a story about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.

A gorgeous venue

A room full of friends

What could possibly go wrong?
