How to read Season of Gifts early

by | Feb 2, 2024 | Neighborly Affection series

Neighborly Affection Book 8 is coming in July, but you can read Season of Gifts early on Ream.

February is a month for love, so more than two dozen poly, menage, and reverse harem romance authors have joined forces for the Many Hearts One Love Why Choose Extravaganza now through Feb. 17 on Ream! (Or visit the event Linktree for fast loading and fewer images.)

You can grab one month of free access to a paid tier from each of the participating authors. To access the benefits, visit the author’s Ream page and click on the “Follow” button. Following is always absolutely free. Click on the Community tab and look for the post with the author’s promotional code.

When you click to join the paid tier listed for the Many Hearts One Love event, make sure you enter the author’s promotional code in the promo box. You’ll get a full month of free access! Plus, you’ll get an entry for a shot at six months of free access to ALL of the participating authors’ content.

If you check things out and don’t want to hang around, no worries—just unsubscribe from the paid tier before your free month is up.

What Neighborly Affection fans can expect

Visit M.Q. Barber’s Affectionaughties on Ream and click Follow to read the first chapter of Season of Gifts. A new chapter is posted to followers on the 18th of every month until the book’s release on July 17.

To claim your free month of access to the Founders Suite, click on the Community tab and read the post titled “Get a one-month upgrade to the Founders Suite!” Make sure you use the code there exactly as shown (all caps, all one word) in the promo code box when you upgrade.

Once you join, you’ll instantly receive access to the first FIVE chapters of Season of Gifts, with new chapters coming every week. You’ll also gain access to the Neighborly Affection Testing Ground bonuses and the Founders-only community posts.

Tip: For a better experience using Ream on your phone, download the Ream app.

Here’s a breakdown of when and where things are posted:

✔️ The newsletter subscribers get a sneak peek every month and stay up-to-date on when new releases are happening and such. That’s not going to change.

✔️ The followers on Ream get a full chapter every month, and that’s completely free to read. You’ll need to create a Ream login to read it, but then you can read and comment and interact in the community. Chapter 1 is available right now! Chapter 2 will unlock on Feb. 18, Chapter 3 on March 18, and so on.

✔️ Founding Suite members on Ream get at least a full chapter every week, plus other bonuses for $5/month. Visit Ream for the complete list of benefits.

Season of Gifts: Neighborly Affection Book 8 will hit retailers on July 17, and it’s absolutely fine to wait and get the whole story then! The options are in case you don’t want to wait to see what’s up with Henry, Alice, and Jay. Preorders are already available from Apple, B&N, and Smashwords.
