2015 A-Z Challenge Theme Reveal

I’ve missed doing the A-Z Challenge. I really enjoyed the years I took part, and along with NaNoNoWriMo, it’s one of my favourite things about the writing community.

I thought this year’s challenge would be the perfect opportunity to give a little insight/ backstory for my contemporary-romance web serial All It Takes, which is currently being published online and is on chapter five.

For those who haven’t read the serial yet, it’s the perfect stepping stone, and for those who are regular readers, hopefully the A-Z Challenge will provide a little more information on Megan, Kian and their situation!

Posts will be anything from snippets and teasers, to excerpts, to character interviews, to flash-fiction pieces set, etc. in the story universe.

And for those who’re interested, here is the synopsis for All It Takes:

All It Takes is one night to change the rest of their lives.

Graduating Uni, travelling Europe and buying her own place – these are on Megan Green’s to-do list. At just twenty-two, becoming a mother isn’t.

Fast cars, expensive clothes and bedding a different women every night – this is how Kian Murphy spends his time when not in the MMA ring. Pre-natal scans and birthing classes are not on his agenda.

After a chance meeting and passionate encounter, Megan finds herself pregnant with Kian’s child. But with a womanizing reputation, and a temper that often leads him into trouble, Kian is hardly boyfriend material, let alone father material.

Now Megan and Kian must work out if they have All It Takes to turn their one-night-stand into a relationship that will connect them for a life-time.

All It Takes is a dual-POV new-adult, serialized contemporary-romance about responsibility, love and discovering who you are in life. New chapter every other Wednesday, at claredugmore.com
