A Dream to Build a Kiss On

John Watson, invalided army doctor and sometimes artist, and Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective, become flatmates and friends in contemporary London. Love grows too, despite past betrayals and present dangers—for where you have Holmes and Watson, there too are Moriarty and Moran. A Dream to Build a Kiss On explores love and family, trust and betrayal, brothers and brothers-in-arms, forgiveness and revenge, in an ongoing tale told 221 words at a time.

Excerpt from A Dream to Build a Kiss On, 129 pages, 15 illustrations:

John drew in his old sketchbook, recalling from mind to fingertips the shape of Sherlock’s sharp-eyed gaze. Fine brows drawn down, dark lashes pronounced against pale skin, eyes alive with fascination as he examined a letter.

He really had to stop drawing his flatmate in such intimate detail. If Sherlock ever actually found this sketchbook, the game would be up entirely.

Hearing Sherlock ascending the stairs, John shoved the book under his shirt. He seized the new one, containing less incriminating art.

Sherlock’s hair was tousled, cheeks flushed with fresh air.

Oh, to make him windswept from kissing!

“Busy morning?” John asked, his voice admirably steady.
