Wink Fusing Music with Fiction - 25% off 'Funky Butts' unauthorized autobiography!

The secret history of a rock band caught between two eras - the end of the Eighties (banal and plastic) and the start of the Nineties (grungy and jaded) - can now be told in its full glory. One band - the Funky Butts - broke the rules and made up some new ones along the way. One of its founders - the Blade - comes clean with every sordid detail and backstage manipulation. Discover the group's unorthodox method for writing songs. Try and comprehend how they negotiated a stunning record deal...without having played live even once! Be part of the mayhem that included riots, physical confrontations, deceptions, and magical moments of rock history that can never be duplicated.

Now available at Smashwords at 25% off the listed price - just $2.99 - special offer that expires July 31.

An original soundtrack for the novel is also forthcoming soon at the Amazon MP3 store. It's that rarity - a book with an accompanying soundtrack! Free streaming of the songs are available at the following site. Truly a companion piece to the novel itself!

'Funky Butts: An Unauthorized Autobiography' has received its first independent review, from author Kathleen Walker (http://www.peaceloveandallthatotherh....blogspot.com/)
An excerpt from the review:

"a well-penned, first-person fictional account of band life back in the late 80’s. The heyday of the beginnings of bands like Van Halen, Duran Duran, The Cure, Def Leppard…”Funky Butts” is witty, progressive, and just plain fun! It is one of my summer must read recommendations. Even if you’re not particularly fond of band fiction, I think you will enjoy the detailed account of life in a rock band."

Available on Amazon for Kindle!
