I had a really close friend who I had known since both of us were in diapers. We'd tossed sand at each other. We laughed at each other's jokes. We even discussed who we thought we should date. But then one day in Jr. High, I looked at him and suddenly saw little hearts.
I could see him as someone I'd wanted to spend more time with. I wanted to know how his lips felt against mine. I didn't want to pick someone else for him to date, I wanted to be the one he dated.
KJ Holliday writes a fun and romantic story about two such friends. They suddenly see the sparks flying and move their relationship to the next level. But even that isn't without its share of frustrations.
10 Days is a marvelous story about a writer who needs inspiration and the woman who suddenly gives him something to write about. Now available in ebook and print, 10 Days is going to be your new favorite read.
A hilarious love story featuring an overdramatic city boy and an incomparable girl from the country.
In an attempt to knock out the long-awaited follow-up to his best-selling first novel, Alexander Jones lets his best friend convince him that trekking into the wilderness for a survival boot camp was the only way to get the creative juices flowing.
With the help of a detailed itinerary, Luke, and Luke's childhood friend, Penny, they’d committed 10 days to help Alex forgo his Urbanite roots and embrace the countryside.
It took a lifetime to get to the mountains where Luke and Penny had camped as kids, and only a second for Alex to know he was out of his element.
In a surprising twist of fate, it also took 10 days for him to fall in love with Penny Foster. The question was, did Penny feel the same way, and what would Luke say when he found out?
The look on her face held infinite secrets. It wasn’t just a “You’re welcome for the fork.” It was for the snuggling, and not telling about the snuggling, and the coffee, and the breakfast. He wasn’t the best at these sorts of things. But he was ninety percent … eighty percent … sixty-seven percent … fairly certain she was flirting with him. A blind person would be able to notice. Well, Luke seemed totally unfazed by the entire thing, so he’d have to say a blind person would notice before Luke did, but they would still notice, and that was … interesting …
He figured it would be best not to dwell on it, so his mind scattered for an appropriate topic to discuss, too early in the morning. “So, what do we have planned for today?”
Penny perked up, fumbling for a royal blue notebook while he focused on inhaling his breakfast as quickly as possible. “I think we should start with making shelter first. In the event of someone being lost or living off the grid, they’d need to know how to make a sustainable place to stay. That’s probably the most practical place to start.”
“Good call,” Luke affirmed, nodding in agreement.
Alex dropped his fork to his plate with a clatter. Shelter? They were going to make him build another place to sleep for when their joke of a tent eventually became unusable? Except this time he probably wouldn’t have ambiguous directions printed on shoddy material he could blame his inadequacy on. Penny grinned at him as if she could read his thoughts. With the scowl marring his face, she might very well have been able to.
Scratch that. This wasn’t flirting. It was torture.
I started writing when I was nine years old. I was in love, it was poetry, and it was absolutely awful. I’ve always loved the written word, and at the age of thirteen I started posting short stories on various free platforms. Short stories grew to multi chapter novellas, which eventually turned to novels. Since then I’ve written hundreds of thousands of words, self-published five short stories, one novel, and am now working with Inkspell Publishing to publish two manuscripts coming early 2021.
