Indie Publishing Podcast – Episode 13: Rocktober and Roll

Deena and Mark Rice are joined by Anne-Marie Klein, author of Behind Blue Eyes: a work of rock fiction inspired by and named after The Who song.  Anne-Marie talks about the 30-year journey of writing, editing and re-editing her manuscript to a state of readiness.  Meticulously researched, the book resulted in The Who’s Pete Townshend sending Anne-Marie a hand-written thank-you note.  Deena discusses the bridge between music and literature, a bridge that both Anne-Marie and Mark helped to build with their rock-themed novels.  All three conspirators confess to hilarious childhood misunderstandings of lyrics by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Kenny Rogers, and The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.  Some unlikely-but-true cover versions are unveiled.
