Red Dress Ink #20: Diary of a Blues Goddessby Erica Orloff
Synopses & Reviews
A diary from a lifetime ago.
A ghost from the past.
And an infatuation long forgotten.
Wedding singer Georgia Ray Miller dreams of becoming a "blues goddess," but her own doubts
keep getting in the way. Besides, she's got enough to keep her occupied, living in a huge haunted (former) brothel with her hippie grandmother, her surrogate boyfriend, Jack, and the Big Easy's most infamous drag queen. Still, she can't help being mesmerized by stories from an old blues pianist. When she discovers a diary from a long-lost aunt, she finds out the blues is truly in her blood.
But before Georgia gathers the courage to sing the Delta blues, she must first figure out the affairs of her heart. Does she remain in the comfortable relationship she's found with Jack? Does she run off with the love of her life, a man from her past with a roguish reputation? Or strike out on her own? She thinks she has it all figured out, but the ghosts of the past have a way of intruding on the present. . .
Georgie is a glamorous blues singer in waiting, but unfortunately she's living the life of a cheesy wedding singer. Living in a converted former brothel in New Orleans' French Quarter with her grandmother and various other eccentrics, she discovers a diary from the 1940s written by her great-aunt, a talented blues singer. Struggling to get her life on the right track, Georgie uses the diary as her inspiration to becoming the blues goddess she was destined to be.

About the Author
Erica Orloff lives in south Florida. She loves jazz music and the blues and is a huge fan of Django Reinhardt and Etta James. She can't sing worth a damn, much to the chagrin of those she lives with, but keeps late hours and believes early mornings should be banned, as all true Blues Goddesses do.
