Rubber Soul by Greg Kihn

Greg Kihn is a rock star, seasoned radio host and author. Rubber Soul, his latest novel is inspired by intimate interviews that he conducted with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Pete Best, Yoko Ono and Patti Harrison. Though Rubber Soul is fiction, as Greg says it is “100% historically accurate” and an candid glimpse of the phenomenon that is The Beatles.

Rubber Soul is a an innovation in the Rock Thriller genre, taking readers on a rollicking ride through The Beatles legacy from the early days in Liverpool to six sold out shows per night in Hamburg and full-fledged Beatlemania.

Dust Bin Bob runs into some lads from Liverpool at his second hand shop on Penny Lane. The lads: John, Paul, George and Ringo and Dust Bin Bob become firm friends, sharing vinyl that will spark a revolution. Murder, mystery and Beatlemania mayhem ensues—with the boys narrowly avoiding an international incident and an attempted assassination. It’s the ultimate Beatles story that could have happened!

“There’s no one more qualified to write a rock-and-roll novel than Greg Kihn. He’s the real deal and at his Kihntillating best in this book.” – Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist of Apple

“Rubber Soul is a magical mystery tour de force by Greg Kihn, a rocker who obviously has a way with words as well as music. His imagined story about the Beatles is fast-moving, full of twists and tension, and musical nuggets and insights. Great story-telling set to a Fab-four beat.” – Ben Fong Torres

“Rubber Soul captures what Rock-n-Roll is all about – and Greg Kihn would certainly know! This nearly-true story of the Beatles is pure magic and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” – Eddie Money

“Greg Kihn is the most compelling author who ever had a top five singing career. Rubber Soul is a fantastic story by Greg, with an historical back beat. I urge you not to miss this.” – Joan Jett

“I’m happy to report that Rubber Soul, the latest work by my pal Greg Kihn, has correct punctuation, complete sentences, even full paragraphs – some of the exact same literary devices that can be found in the greatest novels our culture has ever produced! It’s also written in English, which happens to be one of my very favorite languages.” – “Weird Al” Yankovic

“While the RIAA may not be able to certify Kihn’s work with a gold disc, fans of Kihn and The Beatles, as well as those who long for the simpler yet magical time of the 1960’s will thoroughly enjoy and fall in love with Rubber Soul. They certainly don’t write ‘em like this anymore.” – Chris Shapiro, RetroPulse

gregAuthor Greg Kihn

NBC called Greg Kihn “Rock’s True Renaissance Man” and for good reason. As part of the eponymous band he has: toured the globe, had hit records, been inducted into the San Jose Rock Hall Of Fame, opened for the Rolling Stones and jammed with Bruce Springsteen. You may have heard of his smash worldwide #1 hit “Jeopardy” and “The Breakup Song”, not to mention the parody written by Weird Al Yankovic.

Being a famous and successful rock star is only one part of the mosaic that is Greg’s story. In the 90s Greg poured his passion for lyrics into writing fiction—publishing four novels, one of which “Horror Show” was nominated for the prestigious Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel.

In this vein, Greg merged his love of writing with Rock and Roll and wrote “Rubber Soul”—a unique rock murder mystery featuring The Beatles. The inspiration for this novel came from Greg’s interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Pete Best, Yoko Ono and Patti Harrison. In this way Greg gained exclusive access to the biggest band ever to exist. “Rubber Soul” is a work of fiction, but it is 100% historically accurate and a story that only rock veteran Greg Kihn could have written.

Bobby Dingle, AKA Dust Bin Bob, runs a stall for his

father’s second hand shop at the Penny Lane Flea Market

in Liverpool. Bobby loves American R&B records and

collects them from the merchant marines returning from

America to Albert Dock in Liverpool. He displays them

in at the Flea Market.

One day he meets some amazing individuals:

Around the corner came two leather-jacketed young men, each

with a pink-tipped cigarette jutting from his lips, and each

with the swagger of someone who didn't give a damn. Two James

Deans. Teddy boys. They stopped in front of Bobby.

"What's this, then?" the first one said with a thick scouse


The second shrugged, looking at the prayer rug and ostrich


"A mysterious visitor from the east."

They eyed the records.

"Hold on. What's all this?"

Bobby noticed their hair; greasy, swept back, just spilling

over their collars. They looked a bit scruffy with uneven

sideboards and tight stovepipe trousers. The first one picked

up a record and read the label.

"Chuck Berry!"

"Chuck Berry? No! It can't be! Let me see that!"

"Blimey! Little Richard! Bo Diddley! Where did you get


Bobby smiled, letting the slight gap between his front

teeth show.

"I have a special source, straight from America. Those are

brand new releases. You can't get ‘em anywhere else."

"Do you have any idea what you have here?"

Bobby nodded. "Actually, yes, I do."

"It's the bloody Holy Grail."

The two young men exchanged astonished glances.

"Are these for sale?"

"Yes, they are."

The two Teddy Boys shifted on their feet.

"I'll tell you the truth, mate. We're in a beat group, and

this is just the type of music we do. You know, American rock

and roll. I'm John and this is Stu."

John stuck out a hand. There was something in the way he

stood that suggested a coolness far beyond anything Bobby had


Bobby accepted the hand.

"I'm Bobby. Pleased to meet you. This is my father's stall.

He's got a secondhand store in Merseyside. We specialize in

previously owned merchandise. A little of this, a bit of that;

something that might have mistakenly wound up in the dust bin

but is still quite serviceable."

John barked out a laugh, then slipped into a spastic

impersonation. He looked like a juvenile delinquent Quasimodo.

"Dust Bin Bob! Dust Bin Bob! Your coming was foretold to


Bobby eyed John. Cheeky, he thought, very cheeky.

"So, you're in a beat group, eh? Are you professional?"

John nodded vigorously. "Definitely professional. Oh, yes.

The talk of the town, we are."

"So you must have lots of money to buy records."

John spat. "This is Liverpool, man. Look around you. The

place is a bloody poorhouse. Nobody's got any money, least of

all the beat groups."

Bobby shrugged. "If you don't have money, then you can't

buy records."

John said, "I was wondering... You think it might be

possible to just hear 'em?"

Bobby took the Chuck Berry record out of John's hand.

"This is not a lending library. Why should I let you hear

these beauties?"

"Because we need the music, man. We're going to conquer the

world, you'll see. To the toppermost of the poppermost, and

beyond. Bigger than Elvis."

Nobody laughed. John pawed at the cracked pavement with the

pointed toe of his winklepicker shoe.

"You aim to learn the songs in one sitting? That doesn't

seem possible."

John smirked. "We're good."

Bobby turned to Stu.

"Is he always this cheeky?"

"It's worse than you think," Stu said.

Bobby rubbed his nose and looked the musicians over again.

"You say you play the music of Chuck Berry?"

"Like the man himself."

"Little Richard?"

"Mother's milk to us."

"That's bloody amazing. In all of Liverpool, Dame Fortune

has sent me you. So if I let you listen to these records,

what's in it for me?"

John hunched over, playing the spastic again. He twisted

his face and spoke in a crone's voice.

"What's in it for me? For me? Something for me, sir?"

To Bobby, John's clowning mocked everything he stood for as

an independent businessman. Bobby frowned, suddenly a shade

more indignant.

"That's right. Something for me. Is that so wrong? Bloody

hell. It's a hard life down here in the fleas. A fellah's

gotta eat."

John straightened with a wry smile and a wink.

"You drive a hard bargain, Dust Bin Bob. How about a

lifetime pass to all of our gigs, forever. That's gotta be

worth a fortune."

Bobby snorted. "How about half a bar. From each of


“Bloody embarrassing, that is. You don't want the

lifetime pass?"

"No offense, but... It can't be worth much."

John looked wounded.

Bobby sighed. "OK, I guess I'll take it along with the


John brightened. "Deal!"

"I'll need that in writing."

"Of course, of course. You won't regret this, Dust Bin

Praise for The Complete Amish Wedding Series

"I had trouble putting the book down. I enjoy the stories about the trials in their lives and the way they rise above them with a little assistance from Gott. Nice clean romances are a great to get away and relax. Thank you for the Great read." ~Teresa Thornock (Goodreads)


"You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen," Samuel remarked.

That was a bold statement from an Amish man. But Samuel's feelings were undeniable. Samuel knew that modesty was the Amish way. He'd been brought up on the plain life. Simple service to God. And while Samuel's feelings about himself were humble in nature, his feelings for Ruth were anything but.

Ruth meanwhile was no fan of attention. She was naturally shy. Samuel had managed to coax her out of her shell though. Still, Ruth was hardly comfortable in the spotlight. It was a mystery to everyone else why Ruth was such a wallflower. She had so much going for her, she just didn't seem to realize it.

"Now Samuel, there's no need to exaggerate," Ruth replied, modestly.

"Who says I'm exaggerating?" Samuel continued. "I've waited my whole life to meet a woman like you. And now that I have, it would be a shame not to appreciate you."

"Are you trying to make me blush?" Ruth wondered.

"No. I'm just trying to make you feel as good as you make me feel," Samuel said.

"I'd be careful with your expectations. If you let them get too high, you're bound to be let down," Ruth replied.

"It's too late. My expectations are already through the roof," Samuel admitted. "But don't worry, I can't imagine getting let down by you."

"It must be interesting looking at life through your eyes," Ruth remarked.

"What can I say? Love brings a rose colored tint to everything," Samuel replied. "Don't you agree?"

"Just because I'm not as vocal, doesn't mean I love you any less," Ruth said.

"How much do you love me?" Samuel wondered.

"So much that it scares me sometimes," Ruth admitted.

Samuel was confused. "What's there to be scared about?"

"Are you kidding? You know the road it's taken us to get here. So after all the bumps, to finally be with you, to finally turn my heart over, to let my feelings be exposed is both exciting and terrifying," Ruth explained.

It was true. Ruth and Samuel had found the most roundabout way of getting together. They had been friends for the longest time. Part of a tight knit group of friends that had grown up together in Lancaster. So Ruth and Samuel didn't want to do anything to jeopardize their friendship. They'd seen two of their close friends date in the past. But when their relationship went south, the friendship was ruined as well. Ruth and Samuel didn't want the same thing to happen to them.

So Ruth and Samuel dated other people. They did not have much luck finding love though. There were a lot of first dates, but very few second dates. After a while, Ruth and Samuel started to lose hope that they'd ever meet their match. That's when after a lot of hemming and hawing about risking their friendship, Ruth and Samuel finally gave in to the feelings they had for each other.

Ruth and Samuel's first date was the best either one had ever experienced. They were a great match. With so much in common. And they made a wonderful couple. It was hard to believe they'd been so afraid to get together. In the end, their friendship only added to the relationship they were building. And ever since then, Ruth and Samuel had been nearly inseparable. Now almost a year in, Ruth and Samuel couldn't imagine being with anyone else. They made each other happier than they ever thought possible. But that didn't mean Ruth was without her worries.

Samuel was always there with optimism abound though. "That's how I know we're meant for us each other. Because we know what else is out there. And none of it compares to being with you."

Ruth smiled. "You're the sweetest man I've ever met."

Beyond Control

Beyond Control (Beyond, #2)Beyond Control by Kit Rocha
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! A powerfully hot read to say the least. Love this series.

This is the second part in Kit Rocha's Beyond series and the focus is on the relationship between the leader of the O'Kane Gang, Dallas and his queen Lex. Their relationship is so much of a power struggle and it adds to the intensity of the story and their relationship. Lex is a very independent woman and Dallas loves power and control but he loves Lex more than life.

There is so much going on in this story apart from the really hot sex that happens everywhere with everybody. The world building has increased from the introduction in part one. We learn more about the political life of the sectors as well as their relationship with Eden, the city proper. We are introduced to the leaders of the other sectors as well as life among the masses.

Loved this one, although not as good as the first. The constant arguing between Dallas and Lex, although important to the story, got to be a put off for me. Can't wait to read the next and continue this series. Definitely only for those not faint of heart over 18.

Loren1Amy Holman Edelman launched IndieReader, the essential consumer guide to self-published books and the people who write them, way back in 2007. Since then, indie authors have stormed the bestseller lists, been courted by trad publishers and (after all that), finally gained a modicum of respect.

Amy self-published her first book, The Fashion Resource Directory, back in the 80s, long before POD and Amazon and e-readers roamed the land. Her second and third books (The Little Black Dress and Manless in Montclair), were traditionally published (by Simon & Schuster and Shaye Areheart Books, an imprint of Crown).

As an author and a publicist with over 20 years’ experience, Amy’s goal for IndieReader is no less than to make indie a respected and desirable category within the publishing world. This book is just one step in that direction.

Website * Twitter * Facebook * Twitter



From the Introduction of Indie Authors Naked by Amy Edelman:

IndieReader was launched in ‘07, otherwise known as the dark days of self-publishing. Back then, every book was considered a vanity publication, every author a failed writer. Denial ran so high that when the self-pubbed book, Her Last Letter by Nancy C. Johnson hit The New York Times bestseller list, the good folks at the NYT were still saying that they’d never include one! And then there was The Shack, another indie that snuck through the gauntlet to appear on the NYTimes list for an astounding 172 weeks between June 2008 to early 2010 (52 of those weeks at #1).

Flash forward to 2012-2013. With the advent of ebooks, the publishing landscape has completely and irrevocably changed. Bowker, the ISBN people, recently reported that the number of self-published books in 2012 rose 59% over 2011, growing to over 391,000 titles in 2012. That’s a lot of indie.

But it’s not just availability that has changed the notion of what a self-pubbed book can be. Either the whole “vanity” thing was propaganda on the part of trad publishing—after all, Virginia Woolf famously did it with Hogarth Press—or publishing ebooks makes it easier for talented writers to get their work seen. Either way, over the last couple of years—beginning with the high-profile snagging of Amanda Hocking—at least 50 indie authors (many of them interviewed in this very book) have been courted and won by traditional publishers.

Did these authors’ books change from when they were self-pubbed to when they became trads? Or did their appearance on the bonafide bestseller lists (The New York Times, USA Today) just make it easier for the Big 5 to spot them? Not that getting picked up by a traditional publisher is always an indie author’s end-game. In fact, a recent survey conducted by The Bookseller noted that only about one-third of the self-published authors surveyed stated that they would consider a traditional book deal. That’s a lot of authors who aren’t willing to trade the freedom of creation for the chance to have their works packaged by committee.

So whether an author decides to sell their work to a trad publisher or not—it is clear that indies are here to stay. Their books resonate with readers who really couldn’t give a damn if they came through the hallowed halls of a traditional publisher or just via their ereaders. The indie writing community is strong and getting stronger, as are the options for placing their books (been to your local bookstore lately? You may be surprised at the titles you find on the shelves).

Yes, dear readers, this time—thanks to technology and changing perceptions—self-publishing is clearly here to stay. And via interviews and essays, Indie Authors Naked aims to highlight the best of the best.

Hidden Magic

When Jenny has the opportunity to spend the summer with her sister, a small slice of freedom is all she's really hoping for when she has the opportunity to spend the summer with her sister. Instead she finds something else altogether: electricity.
That's what Jenny feels when she looks at Arram. She knows he’s drawn to her too, but the mage-in-training does his best to hide it.
Stung, Jenny turns to Arram's former best friend, Jack. But Arram and Jack's rivalry is much darker than Jenny suspects, and so are Jack's intentions. Soon she's caught in a mystery of old murder, ancient prophecies, and magic hidden where no one has thought to look.
When Jenny uncovers a secret magic, she is offered two choices. Arram wants her to do the safe thing. Jack wants to show her the easy way out. Whatever Jenny decides, her life will irrevocably change.
Either way, freedom may be the one thing Jenny can never have.

Jack put his finger to his lips and motioned toward an empty bedroom across the hall. Not knowing what else to do, she went in, her heart thudding against her ribs. “Jack,” she whispered. “What are you doing here? How did you get in?”
“What? No welcome home kiss?” His voice was mocking.
Trying to keep her voice steady, she said, “So Arram was right. You do want to kidnap me after all.”
“Kidnap you?” Jack looked horrified. Underneath the horror though, Jenny could see that his eyes were sparkling with mischief. “I should have known Arram would fill your head with something stupid like that. No, you wonderful, impossible girl, I’m here to rescue you.”

Child of the Northern Spring

Child of the Northern SpringChild of the Northern Spring by Persia Woolley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a re-telling of the story of King Author and Guinevere told through the eyes of Guinevere. We meet Guinevere on the eve of her marriage to Author. She is a young girl who is unsure about the arranged marriage but with the urging of her father she decides to fulfill her duties instead of running from them. On the way, she reminisces about her childhood and when she first sees author.

I loved this book. I love that we are introduced to Guinevere as a young girl. We see sketches of her life as she grows up as well as wonderful descriptions of the country and way of life around her. So often in book of Authurian legend the focus is only on Author and that makes this a wonderful change of perspective. Without Guinevere the story of Author would not be complete. He would not be who he was without her.

The characters surrounding Guinevere were great as well. All of the major characters from the legend were included such as Merlin, Gwain, Morgan Le Fey, Morgause, and Nemue. All were wonderfully brought to life as well as Guinevere.

Don't begin this one thinking its a quick read as it is rather long. But it is well worth the time. If you enjoy historical fiction, Authurian legends in particular, this is one to pick up. I look forward to starting the next part.
