A Solitary Man by Shira Anthony and Aisling Mancy Blog Tour

Thanks for hosting us for A Solitary Man’s book tour, Jo and Isa! We’re excited to be here!

Music is very important to us as we find that music can often express what words cannot. When we look to “score” a story, we look for songs that not only set the tone for that moment, but also convey a message appropriate for the moment in the scheme of the story. The songs contained in A Solitary Man do a wonderful job of enhancing the telling of Chance and Xav’s story.

The lead song in the playlist, “Beautiful Slave,” is not integrated into A Solitary Man. Rather, it represents the fundamental struggles and the "human condition" addressed in the story. The song is written and performed by wonderful musicianaries Take No Glory: "Child slavery, addiction, suicide,[]…there is Hope for all of humanity's great struggles. We are Take No Glory, a non-profit musicianary band. We write intensely personal songs about dealing with these types of issues and being transformed by Love."

This playlist is made ever more special because it was created by Mel Leach and Timmy. We don’t have words enough to express our gratitude to them both.

This playlist is dedicated to all who endure.
May your freedom and happiness increase every moment of every day.

About A Solitary Man

Sparks fly when Chance meets tall, sexy Xav at a Wilmington bar and they have the hottest one-nighter of their lives. But Chance doesn’t do repeats, Xav seems detached, and they go their separate ways without a word. Two months later, when closeted Assistant District Attorney C. Evan “Chance” Fairchild meets Dare’s Landing’s newest deputy sheriff, Xavier “Xav” Constantine, Evan isn’t only wary. He’s irritated as hell.

Xavier is a former FBI agent turned deputy sheriff who is hot on the trail of a South American child prostitution ring. Evan is fighting to put an end to rampant cocaine trafficking and chafing under the thumb of an election-hungry boss. When someone tries to kill the thirteen-year-old witness who holds the key to both their investigations, they’re forced to work together as they put their lives on the line to protect him. As Chance and Xav collide in heat of a sweltering North Carolina summer, dodging bullets and chasing bad guys isn’t the only action going on.

About Shira Anthony

Shira loves a great happily-ever-after and never writes a story without one. She’s happy to write what her muse tells her, whether it’s fantasy, sci fi, paranormal, or contemporary romance. She particularly loves writing series, because she thinks of her characters as old friends and she wants to visit them even after their stories are told. Shira writes about the things she knows and loves, whether it’s music and musicians, the ocean, or the places she’s lived or traveled to. She spent her middle school years living in France, and tries to visit as often as she can.

In real life, Shira sang professionally for 14 years, and she currently works as a public sector attorney advocating for children. She’s happy to have made writing her second full-time job, even if it means she rarely has time to watch TV or go to the movies. Shira and her husband spend as many weekends as they can aboard their 36′ catamaran sailboat, “Lands Zen,” at the Carolina Coast. Not only has sailing inspired her to write about pirates and mermen, her sailboat is her favorite place to write. And although the only mermen she’s found to date are in her own imagination, she keeps a sharp lookout for them when she’s on the water.

About Aisling Mancy

Aisling is an author who lives, most of the time, on the West Coast of the United States. Aisling writes adult fantasy, science fiction, adult LGBTQ romance, and fiction for gay young adults as C. Kennedy.

Raised on the mean streets and back lots of Hollywood by a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, Aisling doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic awkward, and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Aisling contemplates such weighty questions as If time and space are curved, then where do all the straight people come from? When not writing, Aisling can be found taming waves on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the much-maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling at all things ordinary.

Find Aisling on blog, Twitter @AislingMancy, Facebook, GoodreadsBooklikes, and
Aisling does respond to emails because, after all, it is all about you, the reader.
