I have a special visitor today. She’s one of the nicest people you’ll meet on social media and her blog is not to be missed. I’m very pleased to have Kitt Crescendo here to give us an inside look to how Three For All came together. Enjoy!
Story telling can be a funny, unpredictable thing. Sometimes even the creator doesn’t know where their characters will lead them. In fact, that’s actually how this particular novelette came to be!
I’d written another novelette, sent the final edits to my editor and shared it with my beta readers only to realize that 3 of my characters were screaming at me for a back story! What’s a writer to do? I put the other book on the back burner and went to work.
Drumming my fingers on my desk, trying to figure out what to do, I heard a song….
Jessie James’ “Boys In The Summer.”
That song reminded me of summertimes spent along Lake Michigan and sent my imagination soaring with possibility…..and Three For All was born.
Of course now that the back story is finally complete, I get the opportunity to revisit the other piece, Four One Night. I’m looking forward to sharing that one shortly!
Have you ever read a book and practically heard a song playing in the background? What was the name of the song and the matching book? (I’m a huge reader and music buff, so I love to know these things!)

What would you do if you had a chance to make one of your wildest fantasies come true? If you’re anything like me, you go for it.
I love my boyfriend, Michael. James is one of my best friends. Who could blame me for having a racy dream or three? Add a little sun and fun vacation and suddenly that dream doesn’t seem so impossible. Do I dare? You only live once.
Excerpt for Three For All:
“Oh, come on,” James whined. “You’re not seriously going to make me go play by myself.”
“That was a loaded statement.” I bit my tongue to keep from giggling over James’ inadvertent innuendo. “But seriously, there are always options.”
“Options?” His eyes were nearly black with intensity, his curiosity was caught. “Such as?”
“Well,” I smiled brightly and stepped between both men, “We could always head back to your uncle’s cottage. Much more privacy there.”
James shook his head as he took a step back. “Oh, hell no. This is my vacation too. We are not going back there just so I can sit all by myself in my room while you two get your freak on, christening every room in the place. Been there, done that. No thanks. Not today. Love you, but no.”
The urge to do a happy dance at the opportunity that just landed in my lap was nearly irresistible. Instead, I batted my eyes at them playfully as my hands found their way up both men’s chests, enjoying the feel of firm muscle. “Who said you had to be by yourself?”
Three For All is available as a Kindle Exclusive:
Bio for Kitt Crescendo:
I’ve always been an avid reader with a vivid imagination, cementing my role as family story teller and librarian. As a military brat, I told stories to my younger siblings to keep them entertained while we travelled the world. Following my mother’s lead, poetry was my first medium for writing. With my love of all things steamy and romantic, it was only a matter of time before I began to write my own sexy stories.
I live with my best friend who I’m also lucky enough to call my husband, and my two dogs. Despite living in Florida, I’m a Midwestern girl at heart. I’m passionate about music, coffee and chatting it up with people who share my passions.
Where to Find Me:
Thank you so much for having me over at your place, SJ. I really appreciate the warm welcome! 🙂
You’re so welcome. Congratulations on the release. 🙂
I read “Three for All” & loved it! Shared it with my husband and it left us wanting MORE. So excited for “Four One Night” to come out. You are absolutely right about Kitt being one of the nicest people around. 🙂
Thanks so much, Maria! I’m thrilled to know you and the hubby enjoyed it. 🙂
S.J.! I wouldn’t be a steamy romance writer worth her double entendre play if I didn’t tell you I got a kick out of “…how Three for All came together.”
You are so right about Kitt. She’s one of my favorite social media peeps. So much so, I plan to take one of my free-to-be-me road trips to Florida. I must give her a (plutonic) 😉 hug in person.
Kitt! That excerpt made me want to stop packing for the move and curl up for another read. Love your playful voice and your oh-so-naughty imagination.
Heh! You caught that? Good! Sometimes I have the subtlety of a sledgehammer. I’m also smiling ear-to-ear to know you enjoy my dirty, if playful, mind.
I would LOVE to give you a hug in person. Thanks for your support!
I agree with you S.J. Maylee – Kitt is one of the nicest people I know.
Which begs the question: how can she write such delicious and oh so naughty stories?! 😀
I LOVE Three For All and feature it on my “naughty” website, Bring Back Desire – it’s in the Love Library under The More The Merrier category – woo hoo!
Thanks for keeping us tuned in and turned on all you erotic romance writers – YUM and MUAH!
You are so very generous to me, Ande. Thank you for all your support. As for the dirty mind with the vivid imagination? You know what they say…”an Angel in the boardroom, a devil in the bedroom.”
Awesome! I’m happy 1) to say “Way to go, Kitt!” 2) To find a new blog here to follow, and 3) Proud to see writers supporting writers — isn’t that what it’s all about?!! Great post. here.
Wahoo! Thanks, Christy. I love supporting writers, especially the sweet and talented ones like Kitt. 🙂
Thanks so much, Christy! Your support means the world. S.J. is as sweet as they come. I love that I’ve found an awesome community & network of friends who share my passion for both the written word and supporting other writers to achieve success. I feel lucky to know such lovely, talented people. The mutual support can only help everyone attain their goals, right? 🙂
