New Prelude Contests!

Yes, I promised new giveaways and I promised to announce the winners of the Dreamspinner Press gift certificate and the Prelude T-shirt.  Actually, T-shirts, plural– because I had so many entries, I thought I’d toss in another!  So without further ado, I’ve got names for you:  Kerry P., you won a Prelude t-shirt, Darcy (Pomma), you won the $10 gift certificate, and Christopher Hammel, you also won a t-shirt!  Congrats.  I’ll email you and we can arrange to get you your goodies.

Now, for all those of you who didn’t win this time, I’ve got 3 more goodies to share.  This contest will end on midnight after my Saturday, May 11th Facebook chat on the Dreamspinner Press Facebook page (hint, hint – you can stop by for more giveaways there, too).  Up for grabs this time are three goodies:  a Blue Notes Series t-shirt of your choice (any cover including Prelude, subject to availability of sizes); a Prelude mouse pad; or an ebook copy of your choice of any of my Dreamspinner Press back catalog books (so anything BUT Prelude).  Same deal–comment here to be entered into the drawings!

More posts coming, more blog stops, and lots of other fun stuff, so stay tuned.  I also promised more of the video tour, so that’s on the agenda, too.  Happy day after release day everyone!  If you’ve read the book, please let me know what you thought of it.  Thanks! -Shira


Summary: World-renowned conductor David Somers never wanted the investment firm he inherited from his domineering grandfather. He only wanted to be a composer. But no matter how he struggles, David can’t translate the music in his head into notes on paper.

When a guest violinist at the Chicago Symphony falls ill, David meets Alex Bishop, a last-minute substitute. Alex’s fame and outrageous tattoos fail to move David. Then Alex puts bow to string, and David hears the brilliance of Alex’s soul.

David has sworn off relationships, believing he will eventually drive away those he loves, or that he’ll lose them as he lost his wife and parents. But Alex is outgoing, relaxed, and congenial—everything David is not—and soon makes dents in the armor around David’s heart. David begins to dream of Alex, wonderful dreams full of music. Becoming a composer suddenly feels attainable.

David’s fragile ego, worn away by years of his grandfather’s disdain, makes losing control difficult. When David’s structured world comes crashing down, his fledgling relationship with Alex is the first casualty. Still, David hears Alex’s music, haunting and beautiful. David wants to love Alex, but first he must find the strength to acknowledge himself.

NOTE: Each Blue Notes novel is a standalone story and books in the series can be read in any order.
