Congratulations to "Christina R.", the winner in L.J.'s giveaway. Please contact JUST CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE to claim your prize.

Writing MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE makes me feel like I’ve come full circle. Like this book journey I started on with MY LIFE AS A COUNTRY ALBUM, has come back to its roots not only because the characters from all the other books have peek-a-boos in this story, but also because Lonnie and Wynn’s story is primarily one of friendship and family. And that’s exactly what COUNTRY ALBUM was about. Just like COUNTRY, MIXTAPE shows how love is worth all the risks. All the chances. All the leaps of faith.

I can’t wait for people to read how Lonnie and Wynn find their new song together. I love that Lonnie always brings laughter to people’s lives just like my own hubby. I love that Wynn is a dichotomy of confidence and vulnerability, happiness and sadness, and hopes and fears. And I completely love the way Lonnie and Wynn both find everything they never thought they needed in each other.

From award winning author, LJ Evans, comes the last story in the MY LIFE AS AN ALBUM SERIES, inspired by music and romance.

I came to Tennessee to help a friend.
And now, I’m stuck.
By the Southern charm,
By the sweet tea and
By a tall, red-headed "Strawberry Shortcake."

And when my world crumbles apart,
Wynn is there to help me pick up the pieces.
To show me the way.

My life was a huge disappointment.
My marriage,
My job,
Everything slipped away.

Coming home seemed like the final failure.
But then I meet him,
Lonnie Brennan, the sexy bass player,
Who adds laughter to my life.

And now, I realize that I can
Change my tune,
Sing a new song.

About LJ Evans:
Award winning author, LJ Evans, lives in the California Central Valley with her husband, daughter, and the three terrors called cats. She's been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. While she currently spends her days teaching 1st grade in a local public school, she spends her free time reading and writing, as well as binge watching original shows like The Crown, Victoria, and Stranger Things.

If you ask her the one thing she won’t do, it’s pretty much anything that involves dirt—sports, gardening, or otherwise. But she loves to write about all of those things, and her first published heroine was pretty much involved with dirt on a daily basis. Which is exactly what LJ loves about fiction novels—the characters can be everything you’re not and still make their way into your heart.
