Tour Stop, Guest Post & Giveaway: Changing Colors by Elyse Springer

Hi! Welcome to the blog tour stop for Changing Colors, the fourth and final book in the Season of Love universe. I can’t wait to introduce you to Tony and Gee– who is, by the way, one of my favorite characters ever! This book is a stand-alone, but readers of previous SoL books will definitely see some familiar faces. Follow the blog tour to learn more about the book, the series, and the romance… and don’t forget to check the tour each day, for your chance to win an Amazon gift card!

I say this with every book I put out, but I struggle to write without having a visualization to base my story on. Not necessarily to use as a description, but rather as an inspiration. With Changing Colors, I spent far too much time looking up pretty pictures of autumn leaves changing colors (it’s research, okay??) and watching make-up tutorials (not research, admittedly, but still addicting). Here are a few of the images that helped to inspire me while I was writing Changing Colors!

Title: Changing Colors by Elyse Springer
Seasons of Love Universe Book Four
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Genre: Contemporary, Erotic, Gay, Romance
Length: 245 pages/Word Count: 65,000


Tony Quinn has a knack for figuring people out. He likes labels, likes to be able to put everyone and everything in tidy boxes. As a theater director, it allows him to run a production without too much drama. But when he meets Gentry—“call me Gee”—in a bar one night, he discovers that some people aren’t so easily defined.

Gee Parnell is unlike anyone Tony has ever met before. He refuses to conform—to Tony’s expectations, or to society’s gender roles. He’s sexy and flirtatious, unapologetic and unashamed. And Tony isn’t sure he’s okay with that. So he breaks things off and escapes back into his well-ordered life.

But then an attack leaves Gee bloody and bruised, and Tony realizes that he isn’t ready to lose him. Not only is the passion between them off the charts, but Gee shows him a different way of understanding people. However, an exciting new job opportunity means that Tony has to decide between hiding his sexuality and his relationship with Gee, and his newfound appreciation for the color and beauty Gee brings to his life.
