#AudiobookBlog “Breakwater: The Mer Chronicles Book 2” by Errin Stevens

Author: Errin Stevens

Narrator: Sean Posvistak

Publisher: Errin Stevens

Released: Jul. 17, 2017

Series: The Mer Chronicles, Book 2

Length: 8 hours 39 minutes

Genre: Romantic Fantasy

The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.

For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one’s around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won’t do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation…

The solution doesn’t inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights – namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they’ll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.

 

 

Errin Stevens writes paranormal romantic suspense stories from her home in Minnesota. When not wrestling with unruly narrative – or reading literary and commercial fiction like a fiend – you’ll find her poring over seed catalogues (winter) or gardening (the other three days of the year).

Song Lyric Sunday | “Funkin’ for Jamaica” – Tom Browne

Song Lyric Sunday_new

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Written or sung by Tom/Dick/Harry or including one of these names in the lyrics.

~~~~~~~~~~

Though it never charted on the Billboard Hot 100, Funkin’ for Jamaica hit number one on the U.S. R&B chart in 1980 and stayed there for a month. It also peaked at number nine on the dance chart and made the Top 10 on the UK singles chart.

Jazz trumpeter Tom Browne co-wrote the hit with Toni Smith (Thomassina Carrollyne Smith), who performs the vocals, as an homage and memoir of the neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens where Browne was born and raised.

FUN FACTS

  • Funkin’ for Jamaica appears on Browne’s second album, Love Approach.
  • The song became one of the most interpolated melodies in R&B with the chorus’ chord sequence used by dozens of artists.
  • During its initial release, some thought Funkin’ for Jamaica was done by Chaka Khan, mistaking Toni Smith’s wailing vocals for that of the Rufus lead singer.
  • Oscar and Grammy-award winning composer and music producer, Dave Grusin, played the piano during the recording session for Funkin’ for Jamaica. He also produced the song, along with Larry Rosen.

Enjoy!
