One Shade Of Red

When good friend Scott Bury asked me to create a post for his new novel, I jumped at the chance.  I read and thoroughly enjoyed his first book, The Bones Of The Earth, and I knew he was going to follow up with something special.

Thank you, Alan, for agreeing to kick off the One Shade of Red launch blog tour.

One Shade of Red is my sexy spoof of the inexplicable best-seller, Fifty Shades ... well, you know what it is. Once I read it (I bought it as a present for my wife — really!), I could not resist the idea of turning it upside down and then trying to write it better.

Where 50 Shades is about an unbelievably naive young woman who finds the perfect man — incredibly rich, unbelievably beautiful, smart, self-made and with one deep, dark flaw for her to fix — One Shade is about a believably naive young man (a 20-year-old virgin for a believable reason) who meets the ideal woman: a little older, beautiful, independently rich, smart, sophisticated and sexually voracious. In other words, there’s nothing to fix.

One Shade of Red hits the e-book retailers on April 2. For links, check out the author’s blog, scottswrittenwords.blogspot.com.

The blog tour begins with an excerpt from Chapter 1, where boy meets girl.
The tour continues on March 27 at Siggy Buckley’s Writers Get Together blog.

Scott Bury is a journalist, editor and novelist based in Ottawa, Canada. His articles have appeared in magazines in Canada, the US, the UK and Australia, including Macworld, the Financial Post, Applied Arts, the Globe and Mail and Graphic Arts Monthly.

His first published novel is The Bones of the Earth, a fantasy set in the real time and place of eastern Europe of the sixth century. He has also published a short story, Sam, the Strawb Part (proceeds of which are donated to an autism charity), and a paranormal story, Dark Clouds. His work in progress is tentatively titled Walking from the Soviet Union, and tells the true story of a Canadian drafted into the Red Army during the Second World War, his escape from a German POW camp and his journey home.
