London Harmony: Water Gypsy

The first London Harmony book is published!

On February 21, 2015 my eBook, London Harmony: Water Gypsy, was added at! As always, print on demand paperbacks are available as well!

London Harmony is a spinoff series of my bestselling romance series, Music of the Soul. It follows June Harris-West and her unorthodox family as they find musical talent in London. Handing out the J-Cards that have become an urban legend in the underground music community. Each book features the story of one of these amazing women.

This premiere book of the series, Water Gypsy, follows Tabitha Romanov as she discovers herself and love, on her journey into stardom.


Tabitha Romanov lives on the river Thames in the heart of London, on a rundown grain barge. She assures everyone in her life it is just a temporary situation. Music and fun drives her and her unique vocal style doesn't go unnoticed by the scouts of London Harmony when they run across her by chance at an underground rave. Tabitha fears she would be stuck with the dreaded Tabby Cat name.

Teresa McClellan is a consummately professional business woman who is the headmistress at a Music Conservatoire. Two complete opposites, oblivious of the other until Teresa catches Tabitha eavesdropping on classes in her school. Then instead of getting upset, she instead starts an unorthodox training regimen with a very confused Tabitha.

Sparks fly in many ways, Tabitha is torn between her attraction to the woman and hating her. Then when Teresa's true motives, Tabitha happily finds that everything is not as it had seemed. ---

The message behind this book is simply that we should love ourselves and the people around us, you never know when something in your life may change and take your dreams away. Acceptance of one's self and finding a new dream is important to finding true happiness.

Nobody has more amazing readers than I do! My MOTS fans have proven that they are behind the new series that has so much Music of the Soul flavor. In just hours after publishing, Water Gypsy hit the bestseller lists on Amazon and the numbers are skyrocketing.

Just because I can't help myself, I want all of my awesome readers to know that I love them and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept anti-gravity boots and cheese.
I'd love to hear feedback and discussion from YOU about the characters in Water Gypsy. I'd love to discuss the story with you!

About Erik Schubach
I got my start writing romance novels by accident. I have always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And I also believe that there is a lack of LGBT characters in media. So one day I came up with a story idea that combines the two... two days later I completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul.

My writing style may not be the most professional nor grammatically correct, but I never profess to be an English major, just a person that wants to share a story. I maintain that my primary language is sarcasm.

Each of my books features strong likeable female characters that are flawed. I think that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character than simply conforming to some "social norm".
