New Release One Helluva Gig by Kevin R. Doyle  #books #romance @Goddess Fish

For those who, like me, love rock stars stories.

One Helluva Gig by Kevin R. Doyle released last week in the romance genre.

Rob Jeffers has it all: fame, money, and the life of a rock and roll star. Frank Peters is a regular guy, a newspaper reporter who just happens to have a passing acquaintance with the Great Jeffers. As Jeffers’s career shoots up, Peters’s fortunes follows in his wake.
And when Jeffers passes away at the height of his fame, Peters’s life begins a steady unravelling. Until a chance encounter on a minor story gives him a new outlook on the celebrity lifestyle, and new hope for his own future.

Off to my right, a slight, average-sized guy came running along. He was wearing the pants and vest of a denim leisure suit, a garish, flowered polyester/Hawaiian shirt with the first five buttons opened up and sandals. Skidding to a stop in front of me, he looked about as confused as I felt at the moment. 

“’Scuse me,” he said, “is this the place for the concert?”

I looked around at all the people flocking in our direction, listened to the squealing of the collection of cuties on the other side of the door. 

“Yeah,” I said, “but good luck getting in. The place is packed.” 

“Really? Cool!” He took off his mirrored sunglasses, and for the first time, I saw the eyes that, in years to come, would stare out from a billion or so album covers. 

“Hey,” he said, “you a student here?” 

“Yeah, but…” 

“You think you can show me how to get in? Like there’s a service entrance or something, isn’t there? I’m with the band, and I’m running late.” 

I clenched up. One of the oldest con lines in the world is “I’m with the band.” But something in the man’s look told me to take a chance. 

“I think I can get you in, but I need something in return.” 

“Yeah?” Now the “guy with the band” seemed uneasy. “What’s that?” 

“Well, you see,” I said, “I’m with the student paper…”

    • Marisol,
      I didn’t have much to do with cover. The publisher, The Wild Rose Press, took care of that. They showed me the concept they were planning to go with to see if I noticed anything glaring off, but when it comes down to it, cover art is almost entirely in the purview of the publisher.

      That being said, the cover artist they used was Jennifer Greef, and I’m not exagerrating when I saw I think she did a fantastic job.
