London Harmony: Roctoberfest

The third London Harmony book is published!

On June 19, 2015 my eBook, London Harmony: Roctoberfest, was added at! And of course, I have also made print on demand paperbacks 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 discover 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 spectacular women.

This is third book of the series, Roctoberfest. It follows Kacy Green as she decides to stake her claim in her adult life. And Mei Hammond as she starts living again after hiding herself away after a horrific accident.

Like the books in the Music of the Soul series, each book can be read as standalone stories but all exist in the same world. Minor crossovers occur. ---

Kacy is tired of living like a teenager, crashing at various friends places for the past ten years. She had run away when she was 15 due to a bad situation with her family. Her band took her in and have taken turns allowing her to stay with them. Kacy has decided to take responsibility for her own life and is in search of a flat of her own.

Her band, The Purple Horseshoes, enters a battle of the bands competition, Roctoberfest, sponsored by London Harmony... in hopes of landing jobs as professional musicians as the record label's house band.

When their lead guitarist defects to another band, Kacy and her unorthodox family go in search of a new lead guitarist to finish the competition with. What Kacy finds instead is a love like none she had ever known, in a woman, Mei, who has suffered tragedy and is struggling to stay afloat in her new life.


The message behind this book is simply that what is on the outside doesn't matter, it is what is on the inside that makes us strong. And that love comes in all shapes and sizes.

There is no doubt that I have the best readers ever! My MOTS fans continue to show that they are behind the new London Harmony series that is so much in the Music of the Soul vein. Hours after I published, Roctoberfest made it on the bestseller lists on Amazon, number four and climbing.

I really have no words for the appreciation I have for my fans. And I want all of you to know that I love them and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept partially invisible alligators watching kitty videos on YouTube.
I'd love to hear feedback and discussion from YOU about the characters in Roctoberfest. (One word... Mick.) I'd love to discuss the story with you!

This Sucks
by Erik Schubach

Violet is mostly a vampire, sort of. He neighbor tried to turn her to save her life after a car accident, only, it didn't take. This story follows her through her misadventures of her and her best friend Cindy learning just what kind of cut-rate bloodsucker she really was.

Of course all sorts of hilarity ensues and hamster thralls are made, but Violet winds up finding the happiness and love she had wanted for so long.


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".
