The After Wards

A Limited Edition run. Now Sold Out.

She's pregnant. He doesn't know it's his. And a killer has returned. Man, ageing out is complicated...

It's Christmas, Cornwall, 1999.

When a pregnant teenage care leaver is mistaken for the proprietor of a run down hotel, she attempts to turn it into a sanctuary for others like her... but soon finds that she's created a lawless melting pot of fraud, dirty money, and hallucinogenic drugs.

Initially, Jac embraces the opportunity to reopen the hotel for business and masquerade as its manager, roping in other care leavers as her staff... including her infamously wayward ex, Sky Spargo.

But when a dark secret reemerges from the hotel's distant past and the pseudo-family she's created starts to crumble as fast as the hotel's ancient guttering, Jac realises her decision to lie has proven to be a catalyst that will change everything: the town, her friends, and the way the world will see them forever...
