Book Two of the Superstars Trilogy, Vasallus: An Excerpt #3

Silver Lake

Bentley’s feelings for Avery were growing as felt in this excerpt:

On the Saturday two days later, she headed down to the streets of her neighborhood, hoping that the atmosphere would enliven her spirits. She decided to hit Millie’s Coffee House for some of the best pancakes on the West Coast and great coffee to match. Fortunately, it was just around the corner from her apartment, on Sunset Boulevard. It was ten in the morning and the place was buzzing. Mostly locals came here, but on the weekends, the odd tourist would somehow stumble upon this place, love the food, and then go home and tell everyone about it. “I guess that’s how these places become legendary,” she thought. Like most shops in Silver Lake, Millie’s was shanty-like, old and badly in need of some upgrades, but full of charm and character, which resulted in great atmosphere. The smell of the pancakes and sausages permeated the air, and the locals argued over the President’s policies, or another non-playoff year for the Dodgers, served by the colorful waitresses who had been a fixture in the restaurant for as long as the wall paper. They could take orders of food from parties of twelve and not write down a thing to remember them, and then serve the food and coffee exactly to the person who ordered it. The stories they carried in their heads from all the different people who had come and gone over the years would be a best seller, if they ever decided to write a book. Bentley loved this place and she loved Silver Lake. It was home. Maybe that is why she feared commitment. It just might take her away from this place.

Book 3 of the Superstars Trilogy – Songs for Survival is Complete!

Songs for Survival Front Cover
Finally after three years the Superstars Trilogy is complete! Book 3 was finished last week and is now in the hands of my editor. She recently had surgery so the edit will take a little longer but I hope to have the book ready for release in the next few months. It is extremely gratifying for me to complete Superstars as there were times when I thought I never would. The story is big, epic in nature and when the time came to wind the story down it was an exhilarating moment for me. The last third of the book when the story was coming to a conclusion I realized how much the characters meant to me. It was both sad and exciting to finally be done with them after writing about them the last three years.

I encourage everyone to give Superstars a try and you will not be disappointed I promise you. For such a big story that is character driven you will quickly become immersed in their plight and will want to read on to follow them. Embrace Book One and Two and the third will be ready for you when you are done the first two!

Book Two of the Superstars Trilogy, Vasallus: An Excerpt #2

Robert Best and his young protege, Connor Asker, being interviewed on live radio. The interview turns out to be a deadly one for the radio DJ:

Best’s face loosened slightly as the topic moved on to the music and replied, “I produced every track on the album with no outside collaboration. You seem to forget, Nate that I am a multiple Grammy Award winning producer and I do not require input from anyone else. I might add that Connor is such an accomplished musician and singer that producing this album was one of the easiest projects I have ever done and yet will likely be my most successful. The songs were written by another client of Blackstar Studios, an extremely talented young musician and songwriter by the name of Patrick Benning. Remember that name Nate; you will want me back in the not too distant future to discuss his career.”
“Okay I will try to remember that. By the way, Mr. Best, did I tell you my name is Nathan and not Nate? Moving along, tell me about “Follow Me Follow You”, the first single of the new album. It is about a young man breaking free from the constraints in life that have held him back, either his parents maybe or school. Is there a little bit of Connor in the words of this song?”
Best’s face narrowed as he looked at him from behind the microphone dangling in his face and replied, “It’s hardly that, in fact the song encourages fans to follow Connor, to follow the example he has set, to be free. Have you even listened to the song Nate?”
Nathan suddenly felt a sense of impending doom like something terrible was about to happen. It was weird as he has never felt this before. Staring back at Best, their eyes locked for a brief second and Nathan could have sworn he’d seen Best’s eyes turn the color of a deep red. It was just for a millisecond but he definitely saw it. It was no reflection from any of the studio equipment. This f—— Best was crazier than a loon. It was time to end the interview with Best, and get Connor back on microphone. “Actually, I have listened to the song, Best, and though the song doesn’t specifically target youth to revolt from their current situation and follow Connor for whatever reason, the song sounds like it is. It’s only my opinion and who cares anyway, right? I hate social constraints as much as the next guy, but they are a necessary evil, wouldn’t you agree?”
