Coming Soon – Adulting 101 ~ Outside the Margins with Lisa Henry

Join Prism Book Alliance® as Lisa Henry goes Outside the Margins today.


I’m really excited to announce that Adulting 101 is now up for preorder at Riptide!

Sometimes I have trouble figuring out what my brand is. I don’t think I really have one. Most of you know that I tend to skew dark whenever I can, and that angst is like crack to me. So Adulting 101 is probably not what anyone is expecting. It’s fun, and hopefully funny, and I think it’s a little sweet as well. I hope that you’ll consider giving it a try.

It’s also the first time I’ve used the words “shut up” in a blurb!


The struggle is real.

Nick Stahlnecker is eighteen and not ready to grow up yet. He has a summer job, a case of existential panic, and a hopeless crush on the unattainable Jai Hazenbrook. Except how do you know that your coworker’s unattainable unless you ask to blow him in the porta-potty?

That’s probably not what Dad meant when he said Nick should act more like an adult.

Twenty-five-year-old Jai is back in his hometown of Franklin, Ohio, just long enough to earn the money to get the hell out again. His long-term goal of seeing more of the world is worth the short-term pain of living in his mother’s basement, but only barely.

Meeting Nick doesn’t fit in with Jai’s plans at all, but, as Jai soon learns, you don’t have to travel halfway around the world to have the adventure of a lifetime.

This is not a summer romance. This is a summer friendship-with-benefits. It’s got pizza with disgusting toppings, Netflix and chill, and accidental exhibitionism. That’s all. There are no feelings here. None. Shut up.

About Lisa Henry

Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters.

Lisa lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.

She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.

She shares her house with too many cats, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.

  1. Got this on my TBR list! Sounds great and the blurb made me lol, so I think using “shut up” worked. 😉

  2. Shut up! (No, it just sounds rude the second time!)

    Thanks so much Jen, and I really hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.
