Cool Conversations with author Elyssa Patrick


Last week, I posted about how I was coveting Rock Fiction novel Stay with Me. I wasn’t quite sure if it was truly Rock Fiction or not because the blurb said nothing about whether or not lead character Hailey had a music connection.

Well, let me tell you that Google alerts are sweet things because author Elyssa Patrick herself dropped me a mention. Yes, Hailey’s a rocker, she said — one who turned away from the biz in order to attend college. Think Emma Watson, she said. Hailey just wants to be normal.

She went on to add that the book isn’t angsty, something I assured her more than once I’m good with. (I am missing the angst gene, I swear it.) She said it’s “a light, sexy read.”

Girlfriend, I am SO THERE.

While I scrounge up a copy of this for me and Jett, let me go on record saying Elyssa Patrick is a cool lady. I hope to have her come visit and be involved with Rocktober 2014. Bigger and better this year, and last year definitely wound up being bigger and better.

Who was it who said Go Big. Get Wild? That’s going to be Rocktober this year.


Rock Fiction Coveting: Stay with Me by Elyssa Patrick


I could have sworn I’d blogged about this one. No?

Well, here ya go. Elyssa Patrick’s Stay With Me.

It’s a New Adult book, which is something we don’t see a lot of Rock Fiction making a home in (yet; the two genres are better than chocolate and peanut butter: two great tastes that taste great together!). The main character, Hailey, is some sort of star. She’s holding a guitar on the cover, but there’s nothing in the book description that points to rock and roll (have we been misled by a cover artist who didn’t get to read the book, or does the description not mention Rock Fiction on purpose?). Maybe it’s her love interest, Caleb.

I don’t know. But I do know one thing: I gotta find out!

You with me?
