Hello Readers and Newsletter Subscribers,
I have some news! I’ve launched a new part of my site nicolepyland.com, which allows users to create a login (username/password). I know… I know… You’re probably saying, “I have enough passwords to remember. I’ve only had so many cats in my life to use as password inspiration, so I can’t just come up with a new password idea whenever, Nicole.”
Trust me, I’ve been there. Whenever my wife wants to change a password on an account, we have a very “serious” discussion where I ask her not to because I can’t remember yet another one, and she does it anyway because she’s in charge.
However, doing this allows me to do some cool things that I wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. So, the decision is entirely yours. You can remain a newsletter subscriber and still receive news on the regular (no change for the newsletters subscribers) or you can decide to use the street you grew up on + your favorite TV show as a new password for the login section of my site. Here’s why you should do it.
To begin with, by logging in, you’ll be able to read an exclusive, never before seen set of shorts I call, “The Proposal Series.” In many of my books, you get to read about that special moment when one woman proposes to the other, but in some of them, it takes place in the future beyond the book or is mentioned later. I’ve written several short stories describing that moment for the couples for you to read and enjoy.
Just create your login to check them out and come back often for more. We’re in the beginning phases here, so we’ll add and edit these benefits as we go. Feel free to send me any idea you have as well. I want to make you having to create yet another password worth it.
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.
For those of you who read “All the Love Songs,” you’ll remember that Lennox presents Kenzie with a script she wrote for Kenzie’s show. That script got Lennox her first official job as a writer, and they worked on the show together after that.
Well, I went ahead and wrote that script, and it’s here for you to read if you’d like. It’s Lennox’s first attempt at script writing, and I tried to keep it authentic to someone who’d only worked in movies and hadn’t ever written for TV before. I hope you enjoy it!
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, it will be included in the Sports Series Box Set sometime this fall (2021), so by Amazon’s rules, I’ll be taking down the story at the end of summer, August 31st.
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.
