Two Neighborly Affection stories almost here

It’s an exciting week for Henry, Alice, and Jay. Crossing the Lines (Neighborly Affection #2) is through line edits and headed for the galley stage, which means I’ll have ARCs (advance reader copies) available for reviewers soon. If you’re interested in getting an early copy of Crossing the Lines, please send an email with “Crossing the Lines ARC” in the subject line to and let me know which ebook file format you need and where you post reviews.

It’s a free anthology from Lyrical Press — yes, I said free — and Henry, Alice, and Jay are starring in the short story “Three-Way Tie.” It’s a peek into the future of their relationship and a special treat: the story is told in three parts, and each one is narrated by a different character. If you’ve been wondering about Jay’s and Henry’s thoughts on the relationship, here’s your chance to get inside their heads.

First Frost is coming out in November, with stories ranging from sweet to erotic. No surprise that Henry, Alice, and Jay fall on the erotic side of that scale, right? Hop over to the Lyrical Press site for a complete list of the short stories in the anthology.

Finally, I’m sending the trio out to play so I can get some work done on another book (please don’t tell them; they get nervous when I play with other characters). So look for Henry, Alice, and Jay on Brynna Curry’s blog on Friday, Oct. 25, as part of the 31 Days of Halloween event.
