Someday Productions LLC and Pillow Talking are pleased to announce the publication by Melange Books LLC of GOING ALL IN by Stephanic C. Lyons-Keeley and Wayne J. Keeley
DANBURY COUPLE PEN CONTEMPORARY FICTION NOVEL
Wife-and-husband creative team Stephanie Lyons-Keeley and Wayne Keeley are at it again. Among their varied projects is a novel titled Going All In which was officially released Tuesday. The book, much of which takes place in Danbury and New Fairfield, CT and was coauthored by the duo, has been released by boutique publisher Melange Books and is available in both electronic and print formats.
Going All In is the story of three mismatched suburban couples who have been neighbors and friends for years. During a pummeling Connecticut Nor’Easter, the members of the bored sextet engage in a friendly game of Texas Hold’em in front of the fire over countless bottles of Merlot. The impromptu get-together eventually leads to the institution of rousing, alcohol-driven, bi-weekly poker nights.
One evening on a lark, someone suggests an alternate payout – instead of playing for pocket change, the winner may choose someone other than his or her own partner with whom to spend the night. What happens there stays there. After a few hairy eyebrows, the proposition takes shape; but complications arise as these things will.
All too quickly, friendships are strained and relationships crumble. Lies are told, truths are exposed, and feelings are hurt. In the end, can anyone bear the weight of this wanton self-indulgence? They are six fully consenting adults, and this was supposed to be just for fun – a goof. No one could possibly get hurt; after all, it was only a game. Or was it?
Going All In defies genre classification. On the one hand it is chick lit at its finest. On the other it is a dramatic, cautionary tale. It is also literary fiction, spiced up with a smattering of racy romance. It may be said that some of the most fascinating reads are thought to “genre-bend” and Going All In is one such example. Drawn from different literary traditions, Going All In will pull you in and not let you go.
