Where to Get It:
Smashwords (all eBook formats)
Local rock band Ragman is finally taking off. Stephanie Case's flamboyant performances and scorching guitar work have started attracting crowds, and singer John Tsiboukas--aka Johnny Tango--is delivering the best performances of his life. After months of playing to dead rooms, it looks like success is at hand.
The thing is, there's something wrong with Johnny's voice. Until just a few weeks ago, he couldn't hit the right pitch if you painted a target on it and let him stand real close. Now he sounds amazing. . . and strange things happen every time he sings. Lights burn out. Whole rooms become cold and hushed. People get violent.
What they're saying about it:
"I love music and I love horror and Voice was a wonderful combination of the two. It starts out a bit slow but soon takes off and there is never a dull page. It is a different take on selling your soul to the devil to get what you want. That is what Johnny does, he wants a better singing voice and the mysterious stranger gives him a chance for success. Soon the band members have to make sacrifices as well. I found it interesting and quite engrossing to read what they were willing to sacrifice and how far they were willing to take it.
What made the book even more enjoyable and real for me was the behind the scenes music details. There was no doubt in my mind that the author knew first hand what he was writing. I loved Johnny who was a nice guy who screwed up. There was something about him from the first page that really tugged on my heart. All the characters gel together wonderfully. The author does a good job of getting us inside of their minds and leaves us asking ourselves what price would we pay for success? There were a few creepy, creepy scenes!"--Amazon Reviewer
