A few months back, I had a small cherry of an idea for a new segment here on RNIC. I know, I know what you’re thinking: “Laurel, you add a new segment almost every week.” While this is true, this particular segment I had in mind required a lot more planning than others.
The Free Reads section of RNIC gets a lot of traction, proving that all readers appreciate a free indulgence occasionally. I loved the idea of expanding RNIC’s offering of free reads, but also wanted to showcase new and in progress stories. We all want quality stories and for some of us, the bite of anticipation is also appreciated. With those things in mind “Seductive Bites” began to take shape.
The Concept: Share one story over the course of multiple installments here on RNIC.
The Reward: Readers get to gradually see a story take shape, and authors get immediate exposure and feedback.
Authors Xio Axelrod and Kim Golden have agreed to be part of this inaugural segment by sharing their story Crossing Paths with us. Over the course of the next week, RNIC will post one episode of Crossing Paths each day. We will also be interviewing Xio and Kim about their story and their inspirations for the characters in the book.
Two people, stranded in Stockholm during a snowstorm, discover a moment in time where the rules don’t matter. Forty-eight hours removed from the world, they can explore their unexpected attraction without consequence. Soon, the fantasy becomes all too real. Will they be able to let go when it’s time to say goodbye?
Check out the first Seductive Bites installment of Crossing Paths here. As the series continues you can find all of the Seductive Bites segments within the “Free Reads” menu here: http://romancenovelsincolor.com/category/seductive-bites/
Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
