First Book on Rock Band Greta Van Fleet Just Published

Riverdale Avenue Books has published the first mainstream book on the breakout rock band Greta Van Fleet.
Hard work is its own reward and nobody knows that better than the heavy rock band Greta Van Fleet who in a matter of years have raced from obscurity as teens growing up in the tiny Michigan town of Frankenmuth to the top of the international hard rock mountain. Hard Work: The Greta Van Fleet Story by New York Times Bestselling Author Marc Shapiro takes you along for this high wire ride to the top.
Equal parts biography and inspirational story, Hard Work: The Greta Van Fleet Story takes the band on an often surreal and edge-of-your seat journey. At a time when popular music had become predictable, pre-fab and the process of making it had been diluted by the likes of American Idol and America’s Got Talent, Greta Van Fleet brought their brand of guitar heavy, very Led Zeppelin-like heavy metal to the public in the trenches. These underage musicians made their bones playing very adult biker parties, dive bars where they often were not allowed inside except to play and spending countless hours driving in cramped vans to the middle of nowhere to play for an audience of 10. 
But persistence would ultimately pay off. They signed with Lava Records and put out a series of albums that captured the fantasy with music that paid homage to hard rock’s past and pointed the way to a joyous rocking future.
This book includes:

·      Exclusive interviews with local club owners from Greta Van Fleet's early days;
·      Complete Greta Van Fleet discography, including outtakes from recording sessions, live garage recordings, concert recordings and recordings of unreleased original songs 
·      The real story behind Greta Van Fleet's controversial Saturday Night Live appearance.
·      Greta Van Fleet's literary and musical influences--beyond Led Zeppelin!
·      And the real story of life on the road!

“This book is biography, but it is also a blueprint to anybody that wants to make real, believable music,” said author Marc Shapiro. “Greta Van Fleet slugged it out in the rock and roll trenches and their reward is that they are currently one of the biggest bands on the planet. If you follow their lead, you can get there too.”
“We think Great Van Fleet be a major force in music for years to come and are thrilled to publish the first rock biography in this incredible band.” said Publisher Lori Perkins.

Final Installment of the M/M SoulShares Paranormal Fantasy Just Pubbed

Riverdale Avenue Books has published the final installment in the M/M Celtic SoulShares series, by Rory NiCoileain. The final book weaves together the myriad threads of this compelling paranormal romance in a climax that crosses time and space.

The Marfach—devourer of magick, long-imprisoned mortal enemy of the Fae race—is free of its Antarctic prison. The Demesne of Purgatory—Fae, humans, a Fade-hound puppy, a Gille Dubh, and a darag—is all that stands between the monster and the power it needs to destroy both the Fae Realm and the human world.  The only clue they have as to how to kill the unkillable is a cryptic note from the Loremasters

As they rebuild Purgatory from the rubble the Marfach left behind, they have to stand together, using everything they know—everything they are to their partners, lovers, husbands. Everything SoulSharing has made them. And not everyone who enters the final battle will leave it.  

“When I first started writing the SoulShares, it was the most incredible feeling. Stories came pouring out of me. There were times it felt almost like the stories were alive, like they were writing themselves,” said Author Rory NiCoileain. “Then, as I kept going, something even more incredible happened. I realized that I wasn't just a scribe, I was part of the story, creating it from the inside.”

“The author laughed when I described this series to a friend as gay True Blood only with faeries, but this series is as twisted and compelling as that world,” said Publisher Lori Perkins.
