New Book Coming: All I Ever Wanted!

I have a fun announcement to make, and I'm really excited about it! A novella of mine is part of a new adult romance anthology that's coming out early in 2014 called ALL I EVER WANTED. I've been working on it throughout the fall with three wonderful writing friends -- Lexi Ryan, Rhonda Helms and Caisey Quinn -- and, on December 6th, our cover will be revealed! (That'll happen through Expresso Book Tours, btw, so if anyone would like to be a part of it, the signup for the reveal is here. :) For now, though, we've got the titles of the individual stories in our collection and the blurbs for each... Take a peek:

Winterfest is heating up in Abbott Springs…
As the town’s yearly festival kicks off, cold days turn into steamy nights, new flames will be ignited, and old romances will be rekindled.
All About Us by Marilyn Brant—All Sami Abbott ever wanted was permission to be herself. At home, she aims to be the perfect daughter but never measures up. At college, she’s the bold girl who had a one-night stand with sexy musician, Alex Hamilton. When he arrives unexpectedly in Abbott Springs, her worlds collide and she must reconcile the girl she tries to be with the person she really is.
All I Need by Caisey Quinn–All pink-haired rocker chick Everly Abbott thought she wanted was acceptance in her straight-laced hometown. But her best friend and bandmate Justin Cohen is about to show her that what she thinks she wants isn’t necessarily what she needs.
All for Love by Rhonda Helms–All Maya Monterey ever wanted was to belong. Happiest with the Abbott family, Maya’s been secretly in love with sexy pastry chef Oliver Abbott for years. With a flirty new look, she’ll pull out all the stops to get him to notice her. And if her plan fails, she’ll walk away from the only home she’s ever known–and Oliver–for good.
All or Nothing by Lexi Ryan—After years of placing the wrong bets, all Aubree Baxter wanted was someone to take a chance on her. Golden boy Kennedy Hale plays it safe in life and love, but to keep Bree in Abbott Springs, he’ll have to go all in.


Looking forward to sharing more news about our "Abbott Springs" anthology soon!! I've loved getting to write Sami and Alex's story, and the Winterfest celebration is just pure fun. Wishing you all a fabulous November, and here's hoping we can keep the snow away this month. I don't mind a white Christmas, but I'd really like to avoid a white Thankgiving!

I'm loving that we'll get more from you so quickly! I still haven't found the perfect time to sit down and read The Road to You, but I'm guessing I'm going to have to shove things around, lock my doors, and just read.

Woot! Looks like a fun read! I like that the stories are tied together. I signed up for the cover reveal, too!

Edie Ramer said...

This sounds like such fun. And I'm so glad I'll get to read another story of yours so soon!

Marilyn Brant said...

Chanpreet, LOL! I hope you get some downtime to relax and read (my book or anyone else's ;). That's still one of my favorite pastimes in the whole world!

Candy, thanks so much for signing up for the reveal!! And it was really fun to write the connected stories - a new process for me ;).

Edie, thank you! It's rare that I get to have something new out only a few months after a big release. I'll never be a fast writer, but novellas unfold so more quickly than I'm used to w/my long novels, and that made the project feel doable!

Oh my gosh! Marilyn, I'm so thrilled for you! (And me! I can't wait to read this anthology!) Congratulations! All the stories sound really great. Wishing you the very, very best!

I signed up for the cover reveal, too. :)
