At the end of my holiday novella, Counting Fence Posts, Henry invites Marc back to his parents’ place for Christmas. Actually, it’s less invitation, more assumption, but Marc doesn’t object, and after two days of haunting the lobby of a crowded hotel outside Albany, they’re finally on their way back to Boston.
If not for a word count limit, I might have included this visit in the original novella. I’m actually glad I didn’t. Not only do I now have the chance to share an extra story (which I love doing), I really like the way Counting Fence Posts ended. It was sweet, simple and filled with promise.
I hope you enjoy this extra slice of time with Henry and Marc! Their story continues in Counting Down, which is their first actual date. The final story in the Counting trilogy, Counting On You (another road trip, with less roadside distress and more happy ever after), is coming November/December 2017. Details on my Coming Soon page.
