I’m pleased to announce that my novel, Sins in Blue, will be published next year by Black Rose Writing. The novel concerns a Depression-era bluesman and his friendship with a would-be teenage music manager in the late 60s. A little bit of mystery, a little bit of sorrow, and a lot of nostalgia.
One fun aspect of the book (for me) involved the song lyrics. I’ve been writing blues songs for a few years, and some of them figure in the novel. I think they hold up pretty well.
The book ends with a recounting of a B.B. King performance in Fort Collins, Colorado. I was there for the show back in 1969. The Great One opened for the Rolling Stones, who played some fine blues that night as well.
