Today, I want to tell you a story:
Almost a year ago, June 19, 2013 to be exact, author Julie Young wrote on my FB author page just to say “hello.” So I went to her page and holy cow—there’s a picture of her WITH GENE SIMMONS! Naturally, I had to know more.
So we got to chatting and OMG—is she cool, or what? Anyway, in September she told me she was looking for a book publisher, and asked me about RHP. One thing led to another, and here it is:
FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME!
This is really a fantastic book—the discovery, the journey, behind-the-scenes, the personal touch and the inner thoughts and emotion—all about plain ol’ Megan Taylor and her incredible musical talents. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS!
Okay, okay, enough of the caps and m dashes and the exclamations:
She sold her soul to rock and roll.
It was the story that rocked the music world. After five years, four Grammy Award-winning albums, numerous number one singles, and outselling every other act in the music industry, entertainment icon MonAmi was a walking case of burnout. When her plans for rest and relaxation were derailed on the final night of what was supposed to be her Farewell Tour, the enigmatic singer took matters into her own hands, running away from her career, her manager, and the mysterious identity that made her into a superstar.
Now a rocker gone rogue, MonAmi returns to her hometown of Kentwood, Indiana where, as 15-year-old Megan Taylor, she was plucked from obscurity and molded into rock and roll royalty with a new name, a lucrative recording contract, and a carefully crafted Hanna Montana-like image. However, what started as a teenage dream quickly turned into a living nightmare as her label gradually controlled every aspect of her life.
