I think I saw a rockabilly couple last night. Guy didn’t believe me, but that’s what it looked like to me. See, one of our local small towns has a festival every Thursday night in the summer, closing off a few streets, bringing in about six unique live bands and the local restaurants offering specials. There’s even an informal old car show that evolves as car shows do in rural areas. And that’s where I think this couple came from–the car show.
I love it when people step outside, or perhaps, inside themselves and show their uniqueness. I didn’t know about the rockabilly culture until recently, but now I’m on the lookout for them. Right here in rural Michigan. And if it shows up here, then it’s showing up everywhere. I’m blaming Vicki Petterrson. She saw them before me, about two, three years before me I’m guessing, and has worked the culture beautifully into her next series, THE TAKEN. OH! As promised, chapter three is now up for your viewing pleasure. Chapter four will be up on Monday, and the entire book comes out Tuesday. Earlier chapters are clickable from the first link. She’s also got her tour schedule up.
I WILL be doing a manic Monday on Monday as well, so do stop at the Drama Box before noon to find out how to get your book for shipping and handling.
P.S. Guy and I had a great time last night eating our sandwiches and drinking our cream sodas while listening to live bands and hunting for Thing Two, on the loose and living free. :-) Spotted him once, and that’s kind of cool.
