I was intending to post it on my blog tomorrow actually, as part of the #12DaysHop. but my stepfather has been in the hospital all week. So I'm a little behind schedule. But I'm still shooting to post before Christmas, since I promised my beta Liz this story as a holiday present. :) Thank you so much for asking! I'm glad you enjoyed the story.(less)

Hi! I just realized you'd submitted this question, which I didn't notice until now, because I never get questions. So sorry!

I have this little problem when I write books. I can see stories branching off everywhere, for everyone. So, yes, in my head, Andie has quite an interesting story ahead of her after the end of Nothing Like Paris. (And I definitely ship her with Beth, but my brain keeps telling me maybe there's a way for the three of them to work something out... ;)

But will I ever write that book? I'm not sure. My June release in this series is a m/f book (Cash and Steph from Off Campus get their own story) and I'll be really interested to see how that goes. As a single parent and sole breadwinner for our two-person family, I definitely consider the market when I'm figuring out what book to write next. If it turns out that people respond well to my making this series an LGBTQ series instead of just m/m, as I hope they do (Steph is bi), then who knows what comes next!

TL;DR Fingers crossed. ;)(less)

I wasn’t planning on writing a story this year for Don’t Read in the Closet, the Goodreads M/M Romance group‘s annual story prompt event. I had a ton of fun writing Five Dates last year, but I was already overbooked. Totally busy. No way, no how could I squeeze in another story on my already full plate. But then somebody (who was it?! I could hug you to pieces right now) tagged me with a link o...
