So… I did a thing.
A while ago, I decided I wanted to write something different… very different from what I normally write. I’m a romance writer, and I love writing romance, so don’t worry, that’s not going anywhere. However, this time, I wanted to explore the world of erotica a bit and write something in that genre. If you’re interested in or a fan of erotica, this is probably something you’ll enjoy. If you’re the reader that prefers 0-1 sex scenes in a romance novel, this might not be the thing for you.
I decided to write this as a serial and give you new chapters one by one, almost like FanFiction, or how novels were originally delivered as serials back in the day. You’ll be receiving 2 chapters a month – every other week, basically – and the main characters’ POV will be alternated each time. These chapters will be posted on my website for logged-in members only.
I have a couple of quick updates for you. If you are a subscriber (logged in user) on my website, you’ve probably already read “Emily & Alison: The Beginning,” which is a series of vignettes about two side characters from “Finding a Keeper” of the Sports Series.
I’ll be releasing a box set for the Sports Series sometime in the fall, and Emily & Alison’s short story will be included in it. That means, the story needs to come down from my site per Amazon’s rules. It’ll be removed on September 1st, so if you want to read it for free, make sure you do before then.
I’ll have something going up on the website for all subscribers this summer, so if you haven’t created a login yet, I recommend you do that soon. More info to come later. 😉
Also, in the past, I’ve done crosswords, review drawings for free e-books, and other content, but I’ve paused this for a while as I was unable to keep up with it for a bit. If you’re interested in seeing something like that return, simply reply to this email. If you have any ideas for other contests you’d like me to consider, send those along, too!
Hopefully, I’ll have some sort of contest running for you before “The Right Fit” of the Boston Series is released on June 25th, and a couple of winners can get the e-book for free on release day. Make sure to get caught up on book #1, “Let Go.”
“Let Go,” the first book in The Boston Series, is out today.
Pick up our e-book today if you haven’t already, and get to know Gretchen & Amanda and all of their friends.
Paperback, as usual, will follow in the next day or so.
Since a few people in my ARC team have reached out either asking me who’s in the next book or telling me which characters they hope to see more of, if you check out my Amazon author page, you’ll find the pre-order for the second book in the series listed already! You can also follow me on Amazon to get a notification as soon as any new pre-order is available.
(Usually, all the links and descriptions for my existing and upcoming books are also listed at the end of my e-books, so if there’s already a new pre-order available, the link would be there when any new book is released – under the respective series or a stand-alone section.)
I hope you enjoy “Let Go” and visiting Boston for this series!
Well, it’s that time again: I’m writing another series.
This one is based in Boston, hence the title The Boston Series. I lived in Boston years ago and fell in love with the city. Less in love with the tourists always asking me for directions while I was wearing headphones and clearly giving off my “local, just heading to work” vibe, but it’s a great city, and I decided to base my new characters there.
In the first book, you’ll meet Gretchen & Amanda and get yourself a little sass, along with a touch of opposites attract. It’s a lighthearted intro to the series, which will take a few turns along the way. You’ve been warned! 😉
If you’re reading this, you’ve likely heard me say that I’m constantly trying to challenge myself as a writer. When I write a series, I try not to make the same book over and over again. That’s why in The Celebrities Series, the books are so different, for example. The key to all of them is love and some romance, though. So, when it’s released, I hope you enjoy the first book in Boston while you get to know all the new fictional friends I hope you’ll make along the way.
Thanks for sticking with me and for all your support of my books! It means the word to me when you relate to my characters and continue to get to know more and more of them each time.
If you signed up to receive signed post cards from me earlier this year, and the envelope hasn’t arrived yet or arrived damaged in any way, please let me know HERE. If you do reach out, make sure your email address and/or recipient name corresponds to the info you’ve provided on the sign up form so I can re-send you the correct post cards you’ve picked.
If you just want to reach out to confirm that you did receive it, that would be great, too! 🙂
“Love Forged” is OUT TODAY! #LesFic
Tate and Flynn are embarking on a journey to self-discovery and what that means for their best-friends-since-birth relationship.
Follow the two women through an adventure as their relationship evolves into more, and their future plans change to reflect the changes within them.
I’m participating in the iHeart LesFic Mega Sale with three of my books:
If you haven’t picked up any of these titles, now would be a good time to do it since the e-books are on sale from March 15th to 19th at only 2.99 (USD, EUR, GBP) or 3.99 (CAD, AUD).
If you read The Proposal Series and noticed the characters named Ada & Dylan, and asked yourself, “What book did they come from?” Well, they’re from “The Disappeared,” so pick up their story during the sale and read it from the beginning.
When I first sat down to write “Love Forged,” I knew exactly what the story would be. This doesn’t always happen with me. Sometimes, it takes me a bit to know what I’m going to write. With “Love Forged,” though, I knew I wanted to use the plot of the father that left long ago – and what he leaves to his daughter present day – to help Tate and her best friend, Flynn, discover not just information about that father’s past and maybe why he left in the first place, but discover something about themselves and each other.
My goal, whenever I write a book, is that it’s not a “typical Nicole Pyland book.” Yes, all writers have their styles, and while writing romance means you’re often writing stories about people falling in love and living happily ever after, with “Love Forged,” as with some of my other stand-alone books, I wanted to try something new.
“What Happened After…,” The Celebrities Series finale, is out now.
This What Happened After is a little different because of the order in which the respective post-Epilogues were written in regards to the books in the series: Part I takes place before “Midnight Tradition,” and Part II takes place after “Path Forward.”
When my readers talk about this series, they tell me they think of these characters as their friends, and I’m no exception to that. It was difficult for me to let them all go, but I hope with “What Happened After,” you get a chance to say goodbye to them in the best way we can with fictional characters – a great finale.
I did something else, too. Remember “All the Love Songs,” the book that started it all?
Well, at the end of the book, Lennox shares a script she wrote for Kenzie’s zombie TV show, which launches her new career as a writer. I wrote that script for you to read for free. It will be available only for subscribers and won’t ever be released on Amazon, so if you’re interested in checking it out, make sure you’re subscribed to the website and have a read.
I wrote it how I thought Lennox would. As a film actress, she’d know screenplay format and not teleplay format, and it focuses mainly on the character Kenzie would have played because Lennox would be obsessed with the woman who would later become her wife. 🙂
I hope you enjoy both WHA and the episode Lennox wrote of “Undone World.” If you’ve already subscribed, you can check it out in the link-button below, and if not, create an account, and you’ll be able to get access to the page of that link and get reading.
I also hope you’re all safe and well,
Happy Valentine’s Day!
To celebrate, I’m releasing “The Proposal Series,” which is a series of short stories about you guessed it… proposals.
In some of my books, I’ve told the engagement story of the characters in the Epilogue. In other stories, though, I didn’t include the proposal specifically, so in this series of short stories, you can read the moment the characters get engaged and fill in that gap.
NOTE: This content used to be featured on my website for logged in users, so you may already be familiar with it. Now, you can finally have it on your Kindle.
As always, thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy!
So, I’ve had a busy weekend. And guess what’s in the mail…
Recently, I decided to have a little fun and order some postcards, and I’d like to sign them for you and get them in the mail.
The first 50 people to complete the form here, will receive a signed postcard of their choice.
On the form, you can also enter a custom message if you’d like. Obviously, I’ll need your mailing address, so if that’s a problem, I wouldn’t recommend signing up for this giveaway.
Once the form hits 50 responses or the deadline of January 31st, I will close it and get signing.
Happy belated New Year everyone!
When I wrote “Finding a Keeper” and my wife read the first draft, she said, “You know people are going to want a story about Emily and Alison, right?”
Well, she was right. People have messaged and reviewed, asking about a story for Emily and Alison.
So, this holiday season, I wrote a novella of sorts (33,000 words). It’s more vignettes than full-on novel. You get to see how these two got together, and you get to spend time with them while Marley and Sloan are taking a backseat this time around.
Instead of putting it out as a novella right now, I’ve decided to give it to subscribers as a holiday gift from me to you. For those of you who want to have it on their Kindle later, there is a very high chance I’ll release it on Amazon at some point in 2021, cover and all.
If you haven’t read “Finding a Keeper” yet, you might want to. You’ll understand some of the timeline if you do, but if you haven’t, you can still hang out with Emily and Alison and watch them fall in love.
I hope everyone is healthy, safe, and happy this holiday season.
If you enjoyed reading the book and you want to listen to it as well, or you’ve been waiting for the audio version to be able to read “Always More” for the first time, your wait is over.
You can pick up the pre-order now. It’ll be released on August 25th.
“Always More,” as many of you know, is a special book for me since I’m such a big fan of the sport of volleyball, so I’m extra happy that this one is now in audio as well. I hope you like it when you get to listen to it. 🙂
I’ll also be giving away a few free audiobooks for “Always More.”
How can you enter? Just send me a screenshot, in response to this newsletter, of your review on Amazon for the e-book versions of either “Always More” OR “A Shot at Gold,” OR the Audible versions of “No After You” OR “Reality Check.”
On the release day, I’ll select a few lucky reviewers and send you each a code to pick up your free copy of “Always More” on audio.
After finishing “Let Go,” I knew I wanted to write a story about Erin. Since she’d dealt with tragedy at such a young age, her story became about reconciling that tragedy and attempting to build her life from there. She wasn’t expecting or counting on meeting someone. In fact, quite the opposite, so adding Becca in as a graphic designer helping Erin with some business needs was supposed to be all business.
“The Right Fit” is about Becca finding the person she wants, and Erin trying to move on from losing the woman she’d expected to spend the rest of her life with.
This one might require a few tissues, but I’m all about my happy endings, as you all likely know by now, so I think you’ll enjoy watching Erin discover who she is now and who she could be with Becca in her life.
There’s more in The Boston Series after this book, so keep an eye out for pre-orders and release dates. 😉
