Encore is now available for pre-order on the Dreamspinner Press website! Even better? It’s on sale through Sunday, October 20th, along with all my other titles. Dreamspinner is having a sale to celebrate Gay Romance Literature Retreat 2013 (GRL), and all attending authors’ books are discounted, including upcoming releases.
I’m having a great time at GRL here in Atlanta. The weather is cool, but the evenings are hot with great events sponsored by publishers like Dreamspinner Press. Lots of amazing authors here, books, swag, and other cool stuff. Tonight is a masquerade ball, and this afternoon is the big book signing event with featured authors (including me!).
I’ve got a few special bits of swag for Blue Notes Series fans, so be sure to stop by my table this afternoon if you’re attending GRL. Just mention this blog post and the special swag, and I’ll set you up. I’ve also got a limited number of cool Stealing the Wind t-shirts I’ll give away to readers who mention this post until they’re gone. XD

And here’s the blurb: A Blue Notes Novel
Cool kid violinist Roger Nelson doesn’t give a damn about anything. Wannabe conductor John Fuchs is awkward, effeminate, and just figuring out he’s gay. Despite their differences, they become friends—then lovers—and after college, they try to make it work. But it’s the 1970s, and Roger can’t bring himself to admit he’s gay. Worse, after his brother is killed in Vietnam, Roger tries to live up to his memory and be the perfect son. Then after suffering one tragedy too many, he makes the biggest mistake of his life: Roger pushes John away.
Through the years, they dance around the truth and in and out of each other’s lives, never quite able to let go. Twenty years later, Roger still carries the pain of losing his dream of a brilliant career with him, while John is a superstar conductor with a wild reputation. John’s off-stage antics get him plenty of attention, good and bad, though deep down, he wants only Roger. Finally determined to hold on to what really matters, Roger asks John for another chance, and when John panics and runs, Roger has to convince him to listen to his heart.
Note: Blue Notes Series novels are standalone novels that can be read in any order, so pick the book that speaks to you and start there! You can read an excerpt from the book here.
Happy weekend everyone! -Shira
