Rubber Soul Blog Tour & Book Review

Rubber Soul Tour

Tour Schedule

Rubber SoulRubber 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!

Amazon * Barnes & Noble * Kobo

My Review

I loved “Rubber Soul!”  I found Greg Kihn’s writing to be thoroughly enjoyable, and captivating throughout the entire book.  What brought me to the book is Greg Kihn used to be a Baltimore resident, and well, that’s where I live!  Although I didn’t during the  brought the Beatles Era to me, with musicians, guitars, records, etc.  I enjoyed the name dropping (even if I had to look them up!) and how much the book was cover to back.

Praise

“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

Excerpt from Rubber Soul

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 accent.
The second shrugged, looking at the prayer rug and ostrich feathers. “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 these?”
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 known.  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 us!”
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 you.”
“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
money.”
John brightened. “Deal!”
“I’ll need that in writing.”
“Of course, of course. You won’t regret this, Dust Bin Bob.”

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.

Ashes Ashes Book Tour, Giveaway, and My Review

ashes ashes ASHES ASHES
Are you ever really innocent until proven guilty?
Sophia Naziri is wanted for questioning in the murder of a U.S. senator. She’s worried the police will show up on her doorstep any moment, but when Detective Colby Black appears, it’s to help her put out a kitchen fire, not take her in. Yet. His easy smile and persistence in getting to know her pushes all her troubles to the back of her mind, until a hit man tracks her down. Getting arrested becomes the least of her worries and the handsome detective could be her only way out—if she tells him the truth.
Colby Black’s sniper skills have been a blessing and a curse to him. As a member of a Hostage Negotiation Team, he can use them to save people, but sometimes he can’t protect the innocent despite his best efforts. When a hostage situation goes bad, he tries to put it behind him by helping out his mysterious next-door neighbor, Sophia Naziri. But she pulls Colby into a web of lies and conspiracy that will force him to use every skill he has in order to survive. Faced with the moment of truth, can he trust anyone around him—including the woman at the center of it all?

AUTHOR JULIE COULTER BELLON

Julie is the author of seven international suspense novels: Through Love’s Trials, On the Edge,Time Will Tell, All’s Fair, Dangerous Connections,Ribbon of Darkness and All Fall Down. She loves her work partly because she gets to travel to distant lands to research and add an authentic feel to all of her books. Her favorite cities so far are Athens, Paris, Ottawa, and London. She taught journalism at BYU for fourteen years and that kept her on the cutting edge of current events and world news—which is where she gets her story ideas.

She also has one non-fiction title: Be Prepared: A Parent’s Guide to the Duty to God and Eagle Scout Awards—What You Should Know and is part of two compilations, How Will Christmas Find Us and Life Lessons From Mothers of Faith.
She is the mother of eight children and when she’s not busy being a mom or a writer, you will find her browsing through bookstores to add to her book collection, at the library borrowing books, or reading the treasures she’s found.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK

Ashes Ashes is the book #2 of the Hostage Negotiation Team series.  Although I did not read the first book (but intend to!), I found Ashes Ashes to be great as a book on its own!  Colby Black is a retired Marine that works on a Hostage Negotiation Team as a detective.  And he de-stresses by cleaning.  Colby finds himself saving his beautiful new next door neighbor, Sophia, from a kitchen fire, saving her life, and yes, cleaning up.  Colby becomes intertwined in Sophia’s life, despite the fact she continuously pushes him away.  The book is filled with intense suspense, a heart-pounding plot, and great characters.

 

EXCERPT FROM ASHES ASHES

He rested his hands on her shoulders, but didn’t say anything.

“This is where I make my stand,” she told him.  “If I don’t, I know I’ll regret it for the rest of my life.  I have a chance to make a difference, to get justice for Philip.”

He let out a breath.  “I know about wanting to make a difference, but what if you don’t make it out?  Is it worth your life?”  He gently turned her around to face him.  “Because I don’t know if it is.”

She held her hand to his cheek, her brown eyes intense and searching his face.  Putting a hand at the back of her neck, he pulled her to him, brushing his lips over hers.  Her arms slid around his neck and she melted into his arms.  His feelings that he hadn’t consciously admitted he had for her surged to the surface and his mouth pressed into hers, no longer gentle.  She responded with just as much fire and Colby could barely suppress a groan.  His hand slipped to her back, running the length of it. His entire body felt like there was nothing else, just her, and without her there was nothing.

Rising Sun, Falling Star Book Blast Giveaway

Rising SunRising Sun, Falling Star

Different eyes and skin

Mock me from the mirror’s light

Enemy am I.

Dec 7, 1941

Today my life changed forever . . . I am no longer considered American, but by shear heritage I am now the hated enemy . . .

The lives of Kenji and Aiko Onishi and their American-born children are about to unravel when the United States is thrust into war with Japan. Confronted by insurmountable prejudice and fear, the family is ripped from their California home without just cause by the American government and sent to an assembly center “for their own protection.”

Forced to live in deplorable circumstances, every aspect of their lives regulated and controlled, the Onishi’s freedoms are stripped from their grasp as they struggle to survive behind barbed wire. It isn’t long before the mind-numbing confinement and feelings of helplessness begin to pit the family against one another.

When sent to a relocation camp in the center of the Utah desert, they’re beset by ever increasing emotional and physical challenges, and Aiko is faced with her greatest yet: to mend the broken spirits of her family, or risk losing them forever.

Based on true and tragic events that transpired during World War II, Rising Sun, Falling Star is a heart-rending story of one family’s struggle to survive uncalculated loss and emotional destruction.

Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Gel Cleaner – Review & Giveaway!

SSMMSR_Toolkit-290x188

As a Purex Insider, I received the NEW Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Stain Remover Gel for review.  The NEW Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Stain Remover features:

  • No Harsh Fumes or Overspray
  • Spray Gel that Clings to Stains
  • Cleans Tile, Grout, Showers & More

SSMMSR_Bottle-LRG

The New Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Gel is a unique spray gel that is tough on stays and is gentle on surfaces.  It’s thick gel clings to bathroom surfaces to penetrate and remove tough stains… without  those harsh fumes or overspray.  This stain remover is absolutely perfect for cleaning tile, grout, tubs, showers, along with most other surfaces in the bathroom.

I tried the Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Gel in our upstairs bathroom – which needed a good cleaning anyway.  I  sprayed the ‘problem areas’ of the tub surround (tile) and the tub itself (porcelain), and noticed that the gel stayed where I sprayed it!  I let it sit for a minute, then I scrubbed the walls and tub down with warm  water. Wow!  I was thoroughly impressed with how well it got rid of the spots of mildew, dirt, and gunk, leaving my tub/shower area sparkly clean!

I really like how New Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Gel really CLEANS well, and quickly too.  And I am enamored that it’s a gel in a spray bottle, with great clinging power!

ENDED – Dry Idea Advanced Dry Product Review/Giveaway – Purex Insider

Congratulations to Lynn Romer on winning the FREE coupons!  Lynn Romer, I have sent you an email with additional instruction so I can get your coupons to you.  Congratulations again!

In terms of deodorant/antiperspirant, I typically use the clinical strength “super-duty” dries clear solid.  I’ve tried all the brands, but never been completely satisfied.  So, when I had the opportunity to sample Dry Idea Advanced Dry Deodorant from the Purex Insiders program, I was more than willing.  Purex Insiders provided a free sample of the Dry Idea Advanced Dry Fresh antiperspirant and deodorant so I could review it.  All of the opinions expressed here are my own.

Continue reading for my review and how you can win coupons for FREE Dry Idea Advanced Dry Idea Deodorant for yourself!

Dry Idea Advanced Dry Deodorant

The sample of Dry Idea Advanced Dry I received to try was a roll-on liquid, which is not the typical type of deodorant I use.  I was concerned about the length of time the liquid would take to dry, but I roll-on the deodorant and in just a few seconds, it was dry.  I was impressed.

I received the Fresh scent.  At first, when applying the deodorant, the scent seems a little strong, but once it dries, the scent subdues and is quite pleasant.  I rather like how the light fresh scent lasts all day.

I live on the East Coast, and the weather has been all over the place – which I suppose is good when you are testing a deodorant.  The Dry Idea Advanced Dry deodorant did everything it was supposed to do – it kept me dry and smelling fresh – from the early morning application all the way through to late night networking.  I have been thoroughly impressed!

In conjunction with the Purex Insider blogger reviews, Purex is holding a sweepstakes called Never Let Them See Them Sweat, where you can enter to win $500!

Dry Idea Advanced Dry Deodorant - $500 Grand Prize
