Rebecca McNutt, a talented author in her own right from Nova Scotia, just dropped this 5-star review of my rock ‘n’ roll novella, FREEWAY AND THE VIN NUMBERS …
“This book is excellent! Imagine a cross between the films “Hard Core Logo” and “Pulp Fiction” and this story is about what you’d get. If you’re a fan of rock n’ roll music from the days before autotuned pop and digitally-synced voices but you also like some romance, comedy and adventure thrown into what you read, this is definitely a book you’ll enjoy. Full of poetic, meaningful song lyrics and featuring characters that seem just like real people, Freeway and the Vin Numbers is a great book for any reader. It begins with a bang as Vincent “Vin” Masoli gets beaten senseless for stealing, and the thrill of playing in a band drives the story forward with a whole new purpose. Behind the times and way ahead of its time all at once, what I loved most about this book is the sense of nostalgia for the days of classic rock music that it calls back to in a way unlike anything else I’ve ever read before. It’s available for free so if you’re looking for a great story I’d definitely check it out! 🙂 ”
I orginally wrote this rock ‘n’ roll novella back in 2010. Now it has a real cover and it’s available to the world, fittingly, for free.
Also fittingly, it comes out just a few days before Jimi Hendrix’s 73rd birthday. His music was the muse for this story.
Here’s the blurb:
In this novella originally written in 2010, a mobster’s son named Vincent Masoli and a talented guitarist from the projects nicknamed Freeway form a band that channels the late great Jimi Hendrix and wows pop-weary fans. Dozens of original song lyrics.
