I’m very excited to let you know that my short story “Open to Negotiation” is included in the Dangerous Curves Ahead anthology! The collection is full of sexy and erotic stories about women who celebrate their diverse bodies. My story focuses on Lydia, from Phi Alpha Pi, who has come through but still lives with the trauma she experienced in my novel. This is years after those events and she’s a much more mature woman. Sparks fly when she meets Marcus and has to figure out if their relationship is professional, personal, or a little bit of both.
It’s time for Woodhouse Hall!

Every February is International Correspondence Writing Month (InCoWriMo). People are challenged to send 28 handwritten letters to people around the world. Some send them to people they know; some coordinate online and agree to send to specific people; some pick random people from online lists and hope they will get a response. Amber has randomly picked Kyle’s name for one of her letters. He lives in Portland, OR and she lives in Nashua, NH. She’s thrilled when he writes back and seems to be just as interested in a pen pal as she is. This starts a year’s worth of exchanges between the two as they navigate being friends through only letters and then struggle with their shifting feelings, something they both struggle to convey to the other. The story ends a year later, each evolving in unexpected ways.
All supporters get to read (and sometimes influence) the rough drafts of letter exchanges between Amber and Kyle. There will be at least one exchange of letters a month as well as polls to help determine elements to move the story forward. The more you contribute, the more involvement you’ll get. The final novel, once edited, will be published in 2020 for others to buy, but supporters have the chance to give enough to get the final version in either ebook or paperback as well as swag created to promote the book. Higher levels will be able to give feedback on cover design, swag options, and pick the next project when this one is over. There will even be bonus content, from Sara’s other works, for extra reading!
