“The time has come,” the Walrus said

We are calling a halt to recording sessions for the next several weeks. While we are saddened at this decision, our fight against Covid-19 is more important to us than putting the cast and crew at risk. The fall out is we will have a brief hiatus in new episode downloads during that time.

We ask our fans to bear with us as we go through this difficult time. You can still listen to any of our back episodes, or get Mayzie Sterling’s short fiction Gamote Point romances on Amazon. In addition, you can take advantage of the free trial Audible offer to help pass the next four weeks or so by clicking on the link on the Restless Shores website.

We will get through this together. Stay safe. Stay well.

A Gamote Point Romance

Mary has learned to use ‘corporate armor’ to turn herself into a force to fear. While this protects her heart, it also smothers the woman she really is. Can a stranger penetrate the corporate armor that Mary has erected to awaken the blaze of passion that smolders within her?  

Author Mayzie Sterling brings us “Venus in a Bodice,” a Gamote Point romance.  Enjoy this debut short fiction romance, and get a glimpse into the lives and loves in the setting for the hit podcast soap opera, Restless Shores.
