On the eve of launch

SpokesRemember that book I’ve been talking about? With the cyclist and the journalist, and the serious road racing in Europe? Guess what–it’s live!

Okay, getting the sneak peek print copies out for GayRomLit kept me away from  the blog, and then I partied hard enough in Atlanta that when I came home to  format the ebook, I introduced a couple of, erm, challenges in the formatting. They’re gone now, but so are my opportunities to tantalize you with snippets.

Spokes goes live all over (she hopes: one can’t make promises for etailing giants) tomorrow. In anticipation of Barnes and Noble and Kobo taking a while, I tried sneaking up on them. They laughed and got Spokes live days sooner than any other of Rocky Ridge’s titles. (Check here and here.)  All Romance eBooks will go live in the wee hours of the morning. And Amazon? Well, I expect to see a link by morning. Timing is one of the challenges I wasn’t expecting with publishing this book.

If you’re feeling lucky, stop by Stumbling Over Chaos, and if patience isn’t your strong suit, you can have your choice of format from your choice of retailer. More links to come!

Friday morning edit! Spokes is up at Amazon! The paperback went glitchy but look for it again this afternoon.

Second edit–All Romance eBooks is up!  Get Mobi, Epub, or PDF.

Pro cyclist Luca Biondi lives for the race. For the star of Team Antano-Clark, victory lies within his grasp—if he can outdistance 200 other hopefuls, avoid suspicion from race officials, and keep his lieutenant more friend than foe. Luca also has secrets, and eyes for amateur cyclist and journalist Christopher Nye.

Christopher understands Luca’s need to keep their relationship under wraps, but chafes at hiding in the shadows of his lover’s career. He’s ready to cheer Luca’s victories, but he knows too well how triumph can turn to tears. While Christopher’s heart sees Luca the man, his inner journalist—and his editor—sees the cycling world’s biggest scoop.

From the jagged curves of the Colorado Rockies to the viciously steep Belgian hills, Luca can ride out any bumps—except rumors about his loyalty.

A few words in the wrong ear could crash everything. With miles between them, hints of scandal, and Luca’s fierce need to guard his reputation, a journalist might have to let go of the biggest story of his career or risk forcing his lover to abandon the race. Christopher and Luca face a path more treacherous than any road to the summit in the Italian Alps.
