I’ve been away for too long, mostly because of computer issues. I’m back with a vengeance, and with a favour to ask. My very first co-written book, Upstaged I Opening Act, which I wrote with S L Danielson, is being released by Extasy on Friday 30th March. It’s such short notice, I’m freaking out. So if anyone can help by hosting, tweeting or anything else I know nothing of, I would be hugely grateful
Anyway, onwards and upwards. Please join me on stage as Erik, frontman to the up and coming grunge band, The Von, is well and truly Upstaged
When the harmony finished its bar, Erik glanced up to find the pale kid in the back staring him down like the grim reaper. What the hell is that guy’s problem? It’s like the gaze of death over there. Whatever. He shut his eyes and forced the image out of his mind—music was all that mattered. As the lyrics slowly left his throat, another sound interrupted his flow. He spun, assuming the god-awful shriek had come from one of the instruments.
“Dude. What the fuck?”
Joey and Billy both shook their heads, as baffled as he was, but Daisy seemed near tears. She shuffled her feet, making her vintage violet and green dress shift with her.
Erik touched her arm. “What is it, Daisy?”
She pointed to the pale kid and made a fist at him. “It’s my brother. He’s playing with your toys.”
She gave Asher a look like no other, one he hoped never to see aimed at him for any reason. But his ire was up. He stared the irritating teen down. Asher met his gaze and once again pressed the button on the angle grinder he held. It let out that same, high-pitched whine as he pushed it against the wall of the garage.
Wannabe singer and band front man Erik Von Nordgren hates snarky brit Asher Berkley with a passion. From the moment he turns up at practice with his twin sister Daisy, who is one of the band the two have hated each other.
Through a series of ‘tit for tat’ incidents they annoy, frustrate and exasperated each other. The die hard goth with purple eyes and the hard core rocker with dreams of the big time have nothing in common and no need to cross paths. Except to wind each other up.
Until the day that Erik throws Asher in the school pool, when everything begins to change. Erik is so far in closet he’s in Narnia and Asher has a dark past and trust issues that stand in the way of any relationship, let alone one with the brash American who hurts him every time they try to get together.
A relationship doomed from the start, or so you’d think.
There are no sales links yet, but I’ll post them as soon as I have them
