Another one set in the 80s! Susan’s gonna go nuts. She has a hard time believing they are over. Note from Susan: Untrue. Music’s better these days.</em

It’s 1983, Los Angles, and Trace Dellon, lead singer, knows exactly what he wants; the white heat of the spotlight. When his band, Black Light is offered a record deal, Trace grabs for it, eager to move up from their club gigs. He will do anything it takes to make it.

Asia Heyes, bass player knows what he wants too. It’s not the fame or the adoration of fans and groupies. It’s Trace. It’s always been Trace. Though it’s been unspoken between them- his other lovers-his audience-push Asia aside.

With the contract, comes Albrecht Christian into their lives. He is a man with everything but what he needs to live: the energy that runs just under Trace’s skin. But even Trace isn’t enough, and Albrecht finds himself starving

When everything crashes with a bullet, they all learn the truth. Rock and roll, like magic requires both love and sacrifice. Then Black Light’s fragile trajectory to greatness really begins.

So… love triangle!

What else is there to say? I strangely don’t see a lot of love triangles in Rock Fiction; I guess too many authors are considering the groupies or the music or the fame to be the third arm of the triangle. Not so much here, huh?

Will this reek of the eighties? Was it okay to be gay back then? (Yeah, Susan just groaned at me.) Seems maybe it’s a sensibility of the current times being slapped onto the past. I know a lot of people had trouble with it in Cherry Cox’s book, so…

Only one way to tell. Bring it on!
