FREE: Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a Downloadable Story from Candy Jar!

Candy Jar Books has released a free Lucy Wilson Mysteries short story to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Baz Greenland has written a fun, action-packed, timey-wimey story featuring the young Defender of Earth, Lucy Wilson, who is actually the granddaughter of Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. And as it happens, Thursday 2nd June 2022, the date of Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, also happens to be Lucy’s 17th birthday!

The Platinum Sceptre is a 27-page tale which is accessible to readers new and old, so it’s a perfect freebie for fans of all ages to enjoy.

Want to know more first? Here’s the brief blurb:

Lucy finds herself in 1977 during the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, but how will she save the Queen without breaking time?

Perhaps UNIT can help!

The downloadable PDF also includes a look at other titles from Candy Jar, including UNIT: Operation Wildcat and Other Stories, Lethbridge-Stewart: A Most Haunted Man, and Timeslides, Colin Howard’s Doctor Who book, full of his artwork and edited by, well, me! It’s a hugely fun project and I’m looking forward to everyone seeing what’s inside.

Lucy Wilson, meanwhile, made her debut in Avatars of the Intelligence and has appeared in a number of novels and short stories including The Brigadier & the Bledoe Cadets, The Children of January, and Back in London.
