Shira Anthony – Coming soon…

September 26, 2011

Thanks again for checking in throughout the day here on Dreamspinner Press’ blog!  Before I sign off from the blogosphere, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about what I have in the pipeline.

Of course, a writer is full of stories waiting to be written, and there are plenty more in my head, some already completed, and others still works in progress.  My next Dreamspinner publication, “Blue Notes,” is scheduled to be released sometime in December, 2011 or January, 2012.  Unlike “The Dream of a Thousand Nights,” “Blue Notes” is a modern romance set mainly in Paris and is loosely based on my own experiences growing up in France.

Here’s the blurb:  Blame it on jet-lag. Jason Greene thought he had everything: a dream job as a partner in a large Philadelphia law firm, a beautiful fiancé, and more money than he could ever hope to spend. But when he finds his future wife in bed with another man, he’s forced to rethink his life and his choices. On a moment’s notice, he runs away to Paris, hoping to make peace with his life. But Jason’s leave of absence becomes a true journey of the heart when he meets Jules, a struggling jazz violinist with his own pain to shoulder. And when Jason wakes up in the young Frenchman’s arms, will he take a chance and follow his heart?

I’m also working on several other books with musical themes that are interrelated to the “Blue Notes” characters, including the story of a conductor and a violinist (working title, “Symphony”), as well as an opera singer and a lawyer (working title, “Aria”).

And I haven’t forgotten about “Dream,” either.  I’ve just started work on a new story in the same universe (working title, “The Jinn and the Thief”) that features one of the secondary characters from “Dream,” Amir, and a twink of a half-human/half-Jinn named Rafiel, who causes a great deal of trouble for the Jinn (not to mention the powerful Amir!). 

I look forward to sharing all of these with you in the future.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy “The Dream of a Thousand Nights” as much as I enjoyed writing it!

    That’s really good news. I read Blue Notes on AFF and loved this story. I’m gonna make sure to put this one on my wishlist and buy it as soon as it is available.
