Wordy Wednesday Special Edition with the Wonderful J. Scott Coatsworth!
J. Scott Coatsworth is one of those amazing people who goes out of his way to support all of us in the indie community and today I'm very proud to share with you his first independently published novel, River City Chronicles. I, for one, can't WAIT to read this book! Scott and I met when I discovered the wonderful world of Queeromance Ink and Queer Sci-Fi, both sites he uses as a way to build awareness of new authors, support established authors, and to even share news that relates to all of us. Scott is just freaking cool and I'm so excited about this book!
Here's what a few early reviews have to say:
“OMG, I could not put this book down. I started after finishing another book yesterday at dinner time and finished this one at 5 A.M. with breaks for a shower and cooking dinner. The characters were diverse, complex, fun, quirky and romantic. The characters personal stories all intertwined and were mixed with a little magic to make this book unforgettable.” “This was amazing. I loved everything about this. It had paranormal aspects. It had mystery and intrigue. it kept me curious what was next and wondering what was going to happen, and it made me smile and laugh.. also some spots made me so sad.. the writing was superb. I felt as if I was a part of them and their story not just reading it. It was wonderful!”
The book is set in Sacramento, which is just a hop, skip and a jump from the Bay Area. My husband went to law school there and was just finishing when we started dating. I have fond memories of the couple of months we spent hanging out in Sacramento waiting for his bar results. One of these days I will make it up there to meet up with Scott and take him out for a celebratory dinner!
Here's a blurb and buy links. Check him out! Everyone in the River City has a secret, and sooner or later secrets always come out. A group of strangers meets at Ragazzi, an Italian restaurant, for a cooking lesson that will change them all. They quickly become intertwined in each other’s lives, and a bit of magic touches each of them. Meet Dave, the consultant who lost his partner; Matteo and Diego, the couple who run the restaurant; recently-widowed Carmelina; Marcos, a web designer getting too old for hook-ups; Ben, a trans author writing the Great American Novel; teenager Marissa, kicked out for being bi; and Sam and Brad, a May-September couple who would never have gotten together without a little magic of their own.
