Author: Rick Starkey
Release Date: March 7, 2016
Thirteen-year-old Rodney Becker has found the perfect cure for stage fright. Voodoo!
Armed with the stolen finger bones of a dead blues guitar player and a mishmash of voodoo spells from the Internet, he and his best friend enter a graveyard at midnight to perform their ritual. Now, all that stands in his way of winning a local guitar competition is the power of RETURN – a side effect of the voodoo that spells disaster for Rodney.
His cure has become a curse. How else can he explain jamming his finger so bad he can’t hold a guitar pick, his part-time dad stealing his guitar, and his mom getting into an accident that could have taken her life?
How much is Rodney willing to risk to achieve his dream of being a guitar legend?
Pre-Order Sale Price of just $2.99 – regular price starting March 7th.

Thanks for sharing Blues Bones!
I used to listen to a lot of punk and alternative stuff like The Sundays and Morrissey. Hog Luv Dog and The Pogues but now I find myself listening to a lot of Christian and really old stuff like LeadBelly and then throw in some Johnny Cash and some James Cotton with a bit of Billie Holiday and Rick Nelson. Even some Elvis….I’ve always been a huge fan of Christmas music so there’s lots of that! In the morning and late at night I find myself listening to a lot of rain and or traffic sound videos on youtube. What’s your favorite music?
I quite like rock/metal.
