Presenting Where’s Waldo…Kyle Edition!
I promise this is not an April Fool’s joke. There are legit 14 free contemporary romance stories (including The Hook Up) waiting for you. Just clicky click and check it out!
This is your periodic reminder that I have a newsletter. I’d like to say I send it out regularly, but intermittently is probably a better descriptor.
You can sign up here.
Why should you sign up?
- In this month’s instalment, there will be links for not one, but two contemporary romance giveaways to keep your TBR pile at nearly lethal heights through April.
- Also, shout outs to recent and upcoming releases that you need to keep an eye on.
- Because I promise to keep it brief, not spammy, and will not bother you again with it for at least another month.
Do you want to be on the A-List? You totally do, don’t you? Newsletter is going out this weekend. Sign up now!
Okay folks, Mondays are hard, so how about a freebie?
The most common thing I saw in reviews for The Pick Up was that people wanted to know more about Kyle’s history with Olivia.
Fortunately, I wrote a short story about that very thing! Here’s the night that Kyle met Olivia.
Remember the fights? The lost phone? It’s all there. But also, there’s karaoke! Ice sculptures! Revenge via veggie fries!
Don’t worry though, if you haven’t read The Pick Up (although you totally should anyway), The Hook Up stands on its own.
And did I mention it’s free?
And available right now?
All you have to do is clicky click on the link and grab a copy!
PS, I’ve got more Red Creek shorts planned for later this year. Members of my Facebook group always get them first. Join us if that’s a thing that sounds like fun!
What a week! We could all use a little happy, don’t you think?
I’ve set up a new Facebook group, Allison’s A-List. We’re going to have themes. Man Crush Monday…Teaser Tuesday…
This week has been a difficult one. The revelations about racism and harassment at Riptide Publishing are upsetting. The victims of this treatment have my utmost sympathy and support.
At this time, I have requested the rights back to my remaining unpublished works from Riptide.
I appreciate the words of encouragement I have received from those who reached out to me this week. Thank you for letting me take the time to come to a decision that works with where I am, so early in my publishing career.
Looking forward to better days for all of us.
Well, that’s all folks. Except of course it isn’t. Kyle and Adam are still out there and they’d love it if you’d take them home for the weekend.
It’s been an amazing week! Fun week! Surreal too, and the emotional hangover is going to be severe. Thanks for everyone who read the book, clicked on a link, entered the blog tour, or just liked a Tweet. As a good writer, I didn’t always think we’d make it to this point where the book is out in the world and I’m already turning my attention to the next one. But, as the Pointer Sisters said, sometimes you gotta believe!

Another excerpt from my trip to the bank.
“How long have you been a writer?”
“Well, I mean, I think people who are writers, it’s always something they’ve done. You know? There’s always a history. Bad poetry, terrible short stories and-”
“No. It’s for the computer. I have to put a start date for your job.”
What do I tell him? Is it the day I started writing The Pick Up? The day I finished it and decided it was something I might try to publish?
In the end, I gave him the date last July when I signed my contract with Riptide. I was a writer long before there was a document with terms and conditions on it that said other people thought I was a writer too.
Today though. Today will always be special. Today is the day The Pick Up is released into the world, so today is the day you all find out I’m a writer too.
I hope you read Kyle and Adam’s story. I really hope you like it. I’d love to hear from you. More importantly, I hope others hear from you. This industry is so dependent on word of mouth. So if you read it (even if you don’t love my guys as much as I do), leave a review. On Amazon, Goodreads, your blog, or just with your book club. There’s more Red Creek coming. You want people to join in the fun, don’t you?
If you don’t have a copy of The Pick Up yet, you can get all ebook formats and hard copies direct from Riptide, or from you favourite online retailer.
Thanks for reading!
