SCAM A-LAMA DING DONG

 

CON THE ROCK STAR Series – Book 1

OUT NOW

A wickedly dark comedy of deception, dodgy behaviour, celebrity, lies and love –  and a huckster’s sly scheme to con the rock star.

Rock stars like Marc Charles don’t like being messed with by con artists, especially when their career is at stake and time is running out. Hounded by Cory Mariano, nephew of the chairman of a family-run Show Business organization operating a mafia-like scam, jaded rock star Marc Charles knows he’s got to fight back to survive, and he can play dirty too!

With the brains of his sidekick moneyman Howie, and Marc’s own charisma and front, he sets out to turn the tables on the crooked “Pay-to-Play” scammers. Marc’s tough-as-nails Agent, the ever-horny Felicity, is right in the line of fire, and she’s been compromised as her company has been taken over by the scumbag corporation. Right in the thick of it Marc falls for his new PR Princess, Samira, aka Sam. But she’s from a different age. This alluring heartbreaker isn’t taking any of that rock star crap Marc tries to lay on her.

As he battles Cory and the racket that threatens to ruin him, Marc, like any red-blooded rock star, keeps up the bedroom antics, gets caught up with some kinky KO’s from crazy Bad Girl TV star, Morgana, belts out a little hot guitar, and pulls off an absolute nutcracker of a plot twist at the end. So jump into the dirty side of Show Biz in this fast-paced humorous dark comedy.

If you like Carl Hiaasen’s dark humour, this fast, amped-up rock music “winner takes all” duel will be just your thing.

Loud, funny and frenetic, the music is Classic Rock and Soul. The humour is dark. The story is today.

SCAM A-LAMA HARDBALL

CON THE ROCK STAR Series – Book 2

A wickedly dark comedy of trickery, dodgy contracts, celebrity, lies and love – and a twisted plot to con the rock star.

Lured by an irresistible offer for a new album, rock star Marc Charles can’t believe his luck…until the deal turns sour. There’s something underhand going on with the mysterious overseas organisation behind the album offer. But contracts are meant to be trashed, aren’t they? Except this offer will get him out of his financial troubles. Torn by the dilemma of recording the shitty song that’s part of the deal and his desperate need to reboot his career, Marc signs the contract. He senses he’s the target of a stand-over tactic, but what can he do? Hell! – rewrite the song and make it awesome. Trouble is he hasn’t written a hit for over a decade. Now there’s so much to play for and too much to lose.

While Marc struggles to rejig the song, a spurned fan from his early days unleashes her revenge by spilling the beans about Marc’s dodgy finances to the Australian Tax Office. Then the crap really hits the blender. While he juggles problems with Guy, his hunky-junkie producer, a crass Shock Jock, some nasty Bosnians, high stakes on the internet, and a half-witted secret agent from ICAC, the Australian corruption watchdog, Marc’s falling head over hocks for Sam, the PR princess. The album almost gets canned, but finally, against all odds, he finishes it. This is Marc’s last chance at being top of the charts again and winning Sam’s heart. What could possibly go wrong?

  • The secret ingredient in shock jock Norm Rackman’s breakfast 
  • Guy, Marc’s hunky-junkie producer’s bizarre weekly ritual

  • What George, the Jurassic Dinosaur fossil has to do with this crazy comedy crime – you’ll be amazed!
  • And why all hell breaks loose just as Marc sings his new hit song at his comeback concert

Crazy and plausible in a nutty kind of way.

The music is Classic Rock and Soul.

The humour is dark.
