Nothing But Ink

(A Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins Novella)

by Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan returns to the Montgomery Ink world with Nothing But Ink.

Clay Hollins knows he needs to stay away from Riggs Kennedy. He doesn’t have time to fall for the bearded bartender that haunts his dreams and waking fantasies. Not only is he working long hours at his dream job with Montgomery Builders, but he’s raising his three cousins and they need him more than he needs a private life.

After one night of giving in, however, neither Riggs nor Clay can walk away.

Only their lives are chaotic with baggage from Riggs’ past and Clay’s present and taking a chance on each other might be the scariest yet best decision they ever make.

An Exclusive Interview With Carrie Ann Ryan:

~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog

Can you tell us why or how you chose to write about this couple for your novella?

I wrote about a kid named Clay years ago. He was out of school and just starting off when his life changed. He was a side character in Inked Expressions who I adored but moved on from. Then my friend E came to me and asked me what ever happened to him lol. So….years later, I moved him and his family to Fort Collins to meet these new Montgomerys…and a certain bartender.

What’s your cure for hiccups?

Hold my breath and/or scream LOL.

What mythical creature do you wish actually existed?

Dragons but honestly, I don’t count them out.

What scene in this book was the toughest to write and why?

There’s a hospital scene that was odd to me. (I know, it’s a Montgomery book with a hospital scene, shocking.) In my head, I couldn’t get a certain actual place out of my mind that was truly traumatic so I had to research a few other ERs for a better layout.

What’s the worst thing you’ve eaten out of politeness?

Damp and wilted salad from a sweet woman who tried her best but it still gives me nightmares lol.

What’s the most awkward thing that happens to you on a regular basis?

My readers constantly tell me that I need to live in a bubble for a reason. I’m awkwardness personified. But how about the time I ran into a wall…on Facebook Live…and turned and walked into a fan?


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
