Blog Tour Kick Off

It’s time for Annabelle’s virtual book tour!

I think it’s so cool that in the age of the Internet we can do a book tour over the web instead of physically in stores!

The first stop on our book tour is Vixie’s Stories where Annabelle wrote a guest post Why I Wrote The Boy Next Door.

It’s got one of her signature graphics, too. So much fun!

Six Sentence Sunday: The Boy Next Door

For the Six Sentence Sunday event, here is a six sentence excerpt of our new book, The Boy Next Door by Annabelle Costa…

As my finger brushes against the slight stubble on his chin, I can’t help but feel like if Melissa were seeing this, she wouldn’t be too happy.

“You shouldn’t worry about Melissa,” he says, as if reading my mind.

“I just don’t want to lose you,” I say.

“Come on, you’re never going to lose me,” Jason says. And I think that he believes it, but I’m not so sure. I think before Melissa will commit to him, there’s going to be an ultimatum, and it’s going to include my name.

Pick up the book at Amazon!

The Boy Next Door

Through middle school, high school, bad dates, and an ill-advised punk phase, Tasha has always been able to count on Jason. Since the day he moved in next door, he’s gone from the weird kid in a wheelchair to Tasha’s most trusted friend. But lives change and the friends are going in different directions. When Jason and Tasha rekindle their friendship, sparks fly. After years of being a wild soul, now the ex-lead of a band turned music teacher is just looking for a relationship to last.

When none other than Jason introduces her to a man who can give her what she wants, Tasha is on the verge of throwing passion and love away just so she can forget her troubled past and settle down. But Jason isn’t ready to give her up just yet.

“Readers hearts will melt as love rolls in with this one-of-a-kind story that is both hilarious and romantic. Costa’s voice is bold, refreshing and the narrative is delivered with such spunk, fans of chick-lit will squeal with delight. With characters this vivid and animated, you almost expect them to stroll off the page in this book your friends will be begging to borrow.”
