Win The Elusive Footprint by Author Kevin Winters

Win The Elusive Footprint by Author Kevin Winters. To enter the contest, fill out the form at http://www.eriegaynews.com/news/article.php?recordid=201311elusivefootprint&sourceid=2 from November 1 through November 22.

Nick Ward’s eerie dream the previous evening which included a footprint in his yard was just that – a dream.  However, the real footprint that he found on his patio the next day is where The One ends and The Elusive Footprint begins.  Nick and Brent enjoy an even closer and loving relationship when Brent moves in and they enjoy spirited times with their circle of friends.  However, Nick’s tranquil world is soon upended by a series of silent – then menacing – calls and the footprint becomes linked as a series of mystifying events propels Nick’s tranquil life into a nightmare of harassment.  Nick confides in his close friends and the police, desperate to find out who is inching dangerously close.  Winters’ spell- binding sequel masterfully draws lovers of gay romance and mysteries into a sensual and absorbing story with richly painted characters and jaw-dropping plot twists with his scintillating new work.

Yours sincerely,
