I want to be a paperback writer. That’s not just a lyric – it’s a life goal. Some day I will publish a book, and the genre in which I want to publish?
You might be asking yourself, what the heck is a rock novel? Search it on Google, and you’re likely to turn up a number of “greatest hits” style lists of fiction mixed with rock ‘n’ roll memoirs. My most simple definition for this type of book is this: a fictional account of a story that revolves around music.
If you’ve been around for awhile, you know about the Rock Novel Reading Club (which we’ll be diving back into soon!) – aka my excuse to read all the rock novels I’ve amassed over the years.
So I was absolutely thrilled when I discovered one of my readers was a rock novel writer! Rebekah N. Bryan just published her second book in her Fandom Collection, and today’s she’s guest blogging to share her top five reasons to read rock novels.
Hi, I’m Rebekah, author of The Fandom Collection, a series of books about music fans, including Front Row and my brand new release, Lyfers. Right now, I’m working on my third fan book, Track Two on Repeat, about the early years of a music fan. Thank you so much to Miranda for having me!
I compiled a list of five reasons to read rock novels, which also happen to be five of the reasons I write rock novels.
