Just Love presents:
Do you think it’s hard to find the great short stories in the flood of everything that’s available online or in anthologies? Or maybe you want to dip your toes into reading short stories but don’t know where to start?
Well, we hope to help you out with that.
Or maybe you just want to talk to us about the short stories we’ve read and like to join us in squeeing over them and tell us your own favourites?
Either way, this new column is (hopefully) going to be a regular one here on Just Love and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Talking about and sharing books is, after all, one of our favourite things to do.
Have any New Year plans or goals? Or on the contrary, have the resolution to have no arbitrary changes, just to throw them overboard and feel like a failure a week later, again?
See how some of us at Just Love deal with this dilemma and what we have to share with you regarding our future. Enjoy!

Why the world needs more rocker romances
Hello! I’m Avon Gale and I’m here to talk to you today about my new book, The Love Song of Sawyer Bell! It’s about a badass rocker chic named Vix, whose band picks up a new fiddle player for their summer tour – a Juilliard-trained violinist named Sawyer. Through the course of the tour, Vix and Sawyer go from friends to lovers and Sawyer has some tough decisions to make about her future.
One of the things I wanted to do in this book, as well as the second Tour Dates novel (about Racer frontman Jax Elliott), was write about bands that hadn’t necessarily “made it” commercially. My absolute favorite musical genre is Americana/Alt-Country, and most of these bands play a grueling tour schedule every year – driving their own vans, hauling their own gear, you name it. Tonight, in fact, I’m going to see one of my favorite bands of all times – Lucero – and they’ve developed a loyal following of fans simply through years of hitting the road and playing their hearts out everywhere they go.
