I discovered this news, myself, while typing out pages in Kristen’s story, Save the Date (Better Date than Never, Book #4). . . .
“I belong in the Better Date than Never series!” a voice called out.
My head whipped left, then right, wondering who had spoken—since I was alone in my office. Finally, my eyes came to rest on the cover of The Boyfriend Bylaws. “Did you say something?” I said.
“Yes.” Suddenly, through a force of its own will, the pink heart on the cover started shifting to red. “Please help me. I need to be with my friends.”
My eyes widened, but I knew what I had to do. Talking books are nothing to mess around with. “Don’t worry. I’m on it.”
Immediately, I turned my attention to my Save the Date manuscript, and my fingertips started tapping out a paragraph—Melanie Porter, from The Boyfriend Bylaws, had worked her way into Kristen’s story. Mel was teaching a Zumba class, no less.
The paperback next to me let out a heavenly sigh. “Thank you for bringing me home.”
As the last of the pink writing faded, the prior contemporary romance book disappeared, leaving a red and black title in its wake: A Twist of Date (Better Date than Never, #5). Coming August 1, 2013.
