Author Override: Amy Lane




For the Selfie blog tour, Amy Lane has written a few monologues from Vinnie’s video blog, set prior to the crash that takes his life. These monologues, performed by Nick J. Russo of Dark Night Sound, correspond to scenes or memories reference by Connor in Selfie, and offer a unique look at this off-screen character.

Released: April 18th 2016
Genre: LGBT
Series: Bluewater Bay #12
Published by Riptide Publishing
Pages: 420

One year ago, actor Connor Montgomery lost the love of his life to a drunk driver. But what’s worse for Connor is what he still has: a lifetime of secrets born of hiding his relationship from the glare of Hollywood. Unable to let go of the world he and Vinnie shared, Connor films a drunken YouTube confession on the anniversary of Vinnie’s death.

Thankfully, the video was silent—a familiar state for Connor—so his secret is still safe. He needs a fresh start, and a new role on the hit TV show Wolf’s Landing might be just that.

The move to Bluewater Bay may also mean a second chance in the form of his studio-assigned assistant. Noah Dakers sees through Connor’s facades more quickly than Connor could imagine. Noah’s quiet strength and sarcastic companionship offers Connor a chance at love that Hollywood’s closet has never allowed. But to accept it, Connor must let Vinnie go and learn to live again.

Okay– this had to be the hardest Vinnie monologue to write– just saying! But thank you so much for hosting my blog tour today 🙂


Inez Garcia

Reading Selfie at the same time I’m listening to the monologues. Feeling a little sorry but Vinnie, but more for my poor Connor. Glad he has someone like Noah now.

Elizabeth Davis

Amy was the reason I got hooked on m/m romance.

Congratulations Amy on your new book.

Amy R

Thanks for the post, I’ve only read a few books by Amy Lane.


The more I hear from Vinnie, the more I believe he & Connor would have blown up spectacularly had Vinnie lived. Either way, it’s sad.

Mary Preston

Fantastic thank you.


Esther Gerdzen

Sounds great . Thank you for the chance .


These are just making me so sad.


What a complicated person. Listening to Vinnie, I feel like some ‘demons’ are lurking. Eh, I’m reading too much into it. Ignore my rambling.

Congrats, Ms. Lane! 🙂
