Short story by TONY SPENCER ....When it snows

Classified as a short story by Tony Spencer. I was asking about some Christmas reads for reviewing. He is just a humble man that doesn't classify himself as an author and does this for a hobby and his enjoyment, he shares just incase someone may want to read it.

Its FREE to download from Smashwords where I will give you the link in a moment.

I have to say, he is never keen to promote his books in our group [2 friends promote with authors] but joins in the conversations brilliantly and I enjoy reading his comments. Because he doesn't promote his books I have not taken any not to progress with that thought other than......wonder what he writes and how he writes. 

He will probably wonder why on earth I have mentioned him on my blog, well, its because I have now read 2 of his short stories. This one above called WHEN IT SNOWS, my honest opinion is, too many F words in there, but apart from that, it has some pretty good one liners, great story line, bit of love, sex and romance. It has the makings of a brilliant novel if he rounded it, but then again, I don't think that is his style, this is more his style, a nice "quickie" so to speak. 

This book is longer than the first one I read but I enjoyed it better, but in a different way.

I am definitely going to be fitting in his other short stories to read. I am loving them, maybe not everyone's taste, but they are mine, so seeing they are FREE to download, why not read them? Write him a review, I am sure he will appreciate it.

Extended description

When it rains, they say, it rains. So when it snows ... well, it's a cold day in Barry's personal hell. He is full of barely-repressed anger. Six years after his divorce, he is frozen out from his children and even his pet cat hates him. He has lost his business, he's out of work, up to his eyeballs in debt, his car has broken down on the by-pass, his library books are almost overdue and now, to cap it all it's snowing. When it snows in your life, it really snows. A romantic story containing adult themes, a little sex and a f-f- hell of a lot of gratuitous profanity. It was intended to be a comedy, but who else has my funny bone? 
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages
