James Holden: Tough At The Top

Naughty ListI’m really chuffed that one of my short stories – Tough At The Top – has been published the latest issue of Silver Apples Magazine. Their theme was “the naughty list” and they provided the following teaser:

‘Tough at the Top’ by James Holden reminds us all to be wary of our battered old Christmas ornaments – those Christmas angels might seem serene but don’t let their halos fool you! They can pack quite a punch…

“I looked up to the angel that was now sat on the top of the tree. She had been bought the week before at a German Christmas Market. My replacement had straw pigtails and a white felt hat. Her face was a perfectly spherical wooden ball onto which eyes, mouth and nose had been painted. I thought her expression was haughty.”

 

It’s the second story of mine they’ve published this year, and if you fancy reading Tough At The Top – and the other cracking stories that are in there – you can find the Naughty List issue here.
