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)

I'm so happy you enjoyed it! :) And yes, there will definitely be more in the series. I'm about to turn in final proofs for Real World, which is a holiday novella (out in November) that revisits Tom and Reese a few years after graduation. I'm also working on a book about Varun from The Girl Next Door, and a pair of novellas about Austin & Vinnie, Rafi's suitemates in Level Hands. If you are someone who enjoys newsletters, I send mine once or twice a month and I always give readers a heads up about what's coming next. Plus, subscribers got a bonus chapter from Level Hands! You can sign up at amyjocousins.com, if that interests you. But I'll broadcast Real World's arrival on Twitter & FB & here on GR too! (less)

Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

Alan Moore
