New book: Her Shirtless Gentleman complete

by | Jan 26, 2015 | Gentleman series, Writing

I’m incredibly nervous and excited about this book — Her Shirtless Gentleman is my first non-Neighborly Affection novel.

I’ve finished my part of the job and turned the completed book over to the copy editor today. The copy editor will ferret out any problems I might have gone blind to while poring over the same text again and again. (Trust me, it happens, no matter how careful a writer you are. An eagle-eyed copy editor is priceless.)

Her Shirtless Gentleman by M.Q. Barber

Her Shirtless Gentleman got the print treatment for its final going-over — I wrenched my back and couldn’t sit at the computer for a few days, so everything was finished by hand and added to the computer file afterward.

Her Shirtless Gentleman will be released by Lyrical Press / Kensington Books on August 4, 2015. It’s a m/f contemporary erotic romance starring Rob, a 36-year-old bachelor who feels the years slipping by too quickly, and Nora, a 31-year-old woman recovering from a nasty divorce. (It’s also up for pre-order in a few spots already, if you like to plan in advance: Amazon | Books-A-Million | Kobo.)
