So glad to be back on Ex Libris, talking about Shane & Jen from Anything for You.
When their story, Because of You, was selected as the launch for Random House's first digital imprint Loveswept, I was over the moon excited to say the least. Finally readers would get to enjoy their story. More than a year and a half since their story came out, they're still my strongest selling story.
Anything For You because, well, just like before their story was sold, they wouldn't leave me alone. There's more to their story. It's a journey rather than a happily ever after but the romance - the love - between them is unwavering. It was a lot of fun revisiting them. It was really surprising to me how quickly I fell back into their world, how easily Carponti came back to life for me. All of it felt so familiar and so…right. It was really great and I’m not sure there won’t be more short stories for them! They’ve been with me so long, it’s almost like they’re not willing to let me go!
I hope you'll check their Valentines Day story out. It's got to have one of the best valentines days ever written in it.
I’m giving away a digital copy of Anything for You as well as Shane & Jen’s first story Because of You to one lucky commenter!
