Come on admit it, you know you were. Back in the days of teen-hood, you (me too) dreamt of being a rock star. Screaming fans, stretch limos and all the trimmings. Burn white hot for a few years and then fall to earth like a shooting star. In this case, a DARKSTAR.

It happened on page 12. That’s where the highly-skilled author Creston Mapes set the hook. I got a big grin, nodded my head and noted the page. I was addicted. DARKSTAR took me on a wild ride from the ugly underbelly of stardom to the path to redemption.

This book gets five stars and both thumbs up. Rest assured that you are going to love it. I can't wait for FULL TILT, coming soon.

Sounds like a cool book curm. You know, I never did want to be a rock star though. Nope, give me a horse and the wide open places. But the book sounds like a fun read. Perhaps I'll have a look for it in a bookshop.

I never wanted to be a rock star either. I always wanted a mustang convertible to cruise the country in....a red one, now that I'm old I would take any color !!! And I've got time now to read the book

M. C. - I read your review and it was great, but I'd expect no less from anyone married to a Dave. As for my picture, I am allergic to bees...
