Blog Tour: Overtime (Cayuga Cougars #4) by V.L Locey (Guest Post + Giveaway)

I Got the Music in Me

Hi there! My name is V.L. Locey and I’m thrilled to be here today! In case you’re not familiar with me I’m an MM romance author, primarily hockey romance, but I do also write non-sporty contemporary, paranormal, and mythological gay romances. Today we’re going to talk a bit about music and writing.

When I asked my readers group what they’d like to know about for this blog post, one of the replies was that they wanted to know what music I listened to when I wrote. Since I don’t listen to music when I write, that would have been an incredibly short post. I’m one of those authors who must lock themselves in a sound-proof cave when I’m creating. No music, no TV, no talking husbands. Nothing. Maybe a purring cat at my side but that’s it.

I do, however, make play lists for each character that I write. I find that knowing what kind of music my character like helps me get a better feel of them. With Sander March I discovered that his musical tastes run to the contemporary pop, indie rock, and indie R&B. Here are a few songs from his list:

Halsey – Bad at Love

Hozier – Like Real People Do

Melanie Martinez- Mad Hatter

Dark Waves – I Don’t Want to be in Love

Pacific Air – Roses

You can find Sander, Mateo, and Noah’s entire playlist over on Spotify by following this link:

Sander March is one season away from the pros, or so everyone tells him.

If only Sander had as much faith in his ability as the Cougar coaching staff does. Outwardly, he’s cocksure, borderline bitter, and slightly sarcastic. All that strut and sass hides a wounded soul though. Working to hide a brutal past filled with humiliation, abuse, and a family member who still haunts him, Sander has never found the kind of comfort and understanding he so desperately needs. Until he meets Mateo Castillo, a minor league baseball player for the nearby Elmira Egrets. Mateo and Sander click instantly, and a budding friendship develops between the two athletes.

Mateo then introduces Sander to his boyfriend, Noah Coombs, an aspiring manga comic creator. The three men find themselves bonding strongly, and that slowly gives way to sexual attraction. Eventually, Mateo and Noah invite Sander into their relationship. The path to happiness isn’t going to be easy for Sander as he faces criticism from his friends, teammates, and the press for his choices. The brash young star can handle all that, it’s when his abuser shows up in Cayuga that Sander fears not only for his own safety, but for the lives of the two men he has grown to love. Will Sander’s past tear him away from Mateo and Noah, or will he be able to leave the darkness behind?

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, Dr. Who, Torchwood, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, two Jersey steers and a flock of assorted domestic fowl.

When not writing lusty tales, she can be found enjoying her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand.
