Friendy...Saturday? Release Day with Addison Albright!
Greetings and Happy Saturday! I have a special post for you today. Addison has been awesome about inviting me to her blog so I wanted to do the same, and since this new release looks PERFECT for this time of year, I had to share! You can find the blog post Addison shared for the Summer of Hush blog tour here. What The Heck is Metalcore Anyway was one of my favorite posts to write! Enjoy!
Now, let's get hairy with Weekend at Bigfoot's!
Weekend at Bigfoot’s by Addison Albright
It wasn’t supposed to be REAL! Bigfoot doesn’t actually exist. Yetis, shifters, creatures of the night…none of those exist. Right? Right?
There’s nothing about perky—some might even say twinkie—Oliver Hughes that would make a skeptic like Sensational News’ (Never Fake! We Swear!) reporter Wilson Banks think otherwise. But while pursuing soundbites for a tabloid story about Bigfoot, Wilson witnesses something he wasn’t meant to see.
In Wilson’s new reality, is there room for love with someone whose dreams are as big as his…er…feet?
This fun novella has a paranormal twist, a hint of mystery, and a flavorful dollop of romantic comedy. Mix it all together for a satisfying HEA!

Addison Albright lives in the middle of the USA. Her stories are gay romance in contemporary, fantasy, and paranormal genres. She generally adds a subtle touch of humor, a smidgen of drama/angst, and a healthy dose of slice-of-life to her stories. Her education includes a BS in Education with a major in mathematics and a minor in chemistry. Addison loves spending time with her family, reading, popcorn, boating, french fries, “open window weather,” cats, math, and anything chocolate. She loves to read pretty much anything and everything, anytime and anywhere.
Music plays little to no part in the storyline for Weekend at Bigfoot’s, but since R.L. Merrill’s blog is somewhat music-centric, I thought it would be appropriate to come up with songs that exemplify various aspects of my story. I went through my favorites playlist and came up with five songs that each have segments of lyrics (although not necessarily the entire meanings behind the songs) that do just that.
⁃ Behind Blue Eyes - The Who & Limp Bizkit - (Both versions are on my favorites playlist) The meaning behind this song has nothing to do with the story, but Oliver’s eyes (which are actually hazel), play a very important part in the story. And surely Oliver feels that no one knows what it’s like to be a Bigfoot shifter. Well, except the other Bigfoot shifters. And Oliver is all about his dreams, which are so much bigger than the small town where he has lived his whole life.
⁃ I Want to Break Free - Queen - Same as above…Oliver desperately wants to break free. Free from his restricted life rather than from anyone’s lies to him. Although it’s true that his life is a lie since the Bigfoot community must maintain their secrecy.
⁃ Puff the Magic Dragon - Peter, Paul & Mary - Yes, this is actually on my favorites playlist. *sigh* I love PP&M, what can I say? I guess the only reason this song fits on this list is because dragons, like Bigfoot, are mythical creatures. Good enough, right?
⁃ Walking on Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves - When I said above that music plays little to no part in the storyline for Weekend at Bigfoot’s, this is the sole song representing the “little” in that statement. This song is mentioned in the story as what a band is playing as Wilson leaves the farmers’ market after first meeting Oliver. It’s pretty much a metaphor for how Wilson felt in that moment.
Side note: I can never listen to this song without thinking of the Supernatural episode introducing popular recurring character Charlie Bradbury (S7E20), so here’s a link to that, too (it’s only a partial for the song, but a very fun scene):
⁃ Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars - This is on the list because Wilson falls for Oliver just the way he is. Discovering Oliver’s special secret only makes him more special to Wilson.
Thanks for sharing with us today Addison!

I'm hoping they will allow my pal Karysa and I to do a live broadcast at some point, so, as always...Stay Tuned for more Rock 'n' Romance...
