A short story regarding wolves and trolls and loyalty

A Gobbelino-adjacent short story involving suspicious wolves, violent unicorns, and really annoying donkeys …

Lovely people, it’s time once again for me to assault your ears and eyes by reading aloud a short story that may not be from the upcoming Gobbelino London & a Collision of Catastrophes, but is certainly adjacent to it.

This time I confirm I cannot do voices, discover alliteration is hard, and confess the true extent of my tea fixation (as if you didn’t know).

There are no spoilers at all in this story, so you can watch on perfectly safely – but do mind the unicorns. You know what they’re like. Stabby.

As I mentioned in the vid, I’d love suggestions for a title so that I can get this story bundled up for you to download – please drop your ideas in the comments!

Then do you need more Poppy and Yasmin in your life? Of course you do! Which means you can pre-order your ebook of A Collision of Catastrophes at all your favourite retailers at the links below – and you should find the paperbacks coming available at the same links very shortly too, if they’re not already.

Need a bit of a sample before deciding if all those catastrophes are for you? We can do that too! Jump here to read chapter one, or here to read chapter two.

And, of course, I also mentioned that I’m going to be doing another Q&A over on Facebook on Friday, at 7pm my time in France. I would love to see you there, but even if you can’t make it live, there will be a replay. So please pop your questions below so that I have something to talk about!

The link for the Q&A is here, and if you want to check what time it is for you, this link should tell you.

I hope I see you there, but if not – happy reading, and watch for those unicorns …

    I’m not very good at thinking up titles or questions, but I really enjoyed this story! I am very excited about the new book on Friday and about new short stories to read! Thanks for being you! (You made me laugh several times!🥰)

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and I hope very much that you enjoy Catastrophes too! Thank you for the support ❤️

    Yes! Loved it! I just finished Collision of Catastrophes and of course it was amazing…and sad. Sorry to be leaving our friends Gobbelino and Callum and Gerry and Poppy and so many more. The resolution of that story was action packed and breathtaking. All that nonstop action…whoo! Deep breaths! But here’s cheers to more stories on the way!

    1. Kim says:

      Aw, I’m so glad you liked it so much! That’s wonderful to hear – and I’m sorry to be leaving them as well, to be honest. I’ve had so much fun writing these stories, and I already miss seeing the world through Gobs’ eyes. But so many more stories to write … 😉

    The only other person I have ever hear of who packed her luggage full of tea when returning from the UK. Love your books! How about “We is Vegetarians” for a title & do you have anything on the hob for audio versions of the Gobbelino Books? I have been listening to the Beaufort Scales books on Audible & very much enjoying them. I just peeked at a preview of some of the others BUT dyslexia makes reading hard. (TY for reading your new short story!)

      Tea is vital! And good tea, not just any old stuff 😉 I’m so glad you enjoyed the short story, and the title suggestion’s lovely as well ❤️ I ended up going for ‘Pack Above All’ when I sent it out to my newsletters/

      And I’d love to do the Gobbelino books in audio at some point. I was lucky enough to sell the audio rights to the Beaufort ones to a lovely company called Ulverscroft, but not Gobbelino. Unfortunately getting them done myself to the standard I’d like hasn’t been in the budget for me yet, but hopefully I’ll get there!

    FYI – I ALWAYS enjoy listening to an author read their own stories. Y’all may not be “polished” BUT the intonations are what you heard in your head as you were writing it so it more than makes up for the flubs…. which are charming anyway.

      Thank you so much! That’s lovely of you ❤️
