Following The Song: Recognizing A Friend's Accomplishment

This space is mine. I use it to write about what I do as a writer, to talk about the publishing business and my own work in that industry, and to announce new releases of my books. It's all usual fare for a writer's website. I don't get a lot of opportunities to give shout outs about what friends of mine are up to.

I have a friend, a musician, and a writing collaborator of mine, Brent Pasley, who doing promotions and gearing up for a summer concert event. It's one of those important milestones in a performer's life to get out there and show an audience what they can do. Pasley's always been a performer of one type or another. This, event far larger and ambitious than anything thus far to spring from the mind of my friend, is sure to be an experience you won't forget.

Pasley have known each other for most of our lives. It has been a tumultuous sort of life considering our roots in tiny rural America. We've been creative types for the duration, alway scheming or thinking about how we'd someday make our marks in expressive, artistic ways. We've been comic creators, played and written music together, and most recently wrote the novel, AUTUMN SKY, together.

I'll admit it. I get to share a bit of the limelight too. Some of the songs that I helped to write in my twenties will feature in this Rock Music spectacle. And that's just cool. No greater thing than for an artist to share his art. I've been lucky to have some of that already with the books I've written.

Me and my little publishing company plan to be there to support Pasley. For those of my readers who live locally, I hope you might plan to attend this concert. We plan to have a table on the premises of the Indiana Theater so you'll see my company, Founders House Publishing, there as well. We'll have books to sell and chances to talk with everyone.

Here are some important links for SUMMER ROCK 2013, which will be held on August 2, 2013.
