Rock God: A Musical Event and Signing

I'm really excited to share with you today some information about an upcoming event and author signing to promote the release of Rock God by Barnabas Miller! Mr. Miller, in addition to being a young adult author, also happens to produce music for film and television and is the drummer for a band by the name of Tiger Beat which features fellow young adult authors Libba Bray, Natalie Standiford, and Dan Ehrenhaft as well. Cool right?

To celebrate, he and his band mates are going to be performing a single he produced in addition to other music, and they will all be signing their books as an added bonus! For anyone in the New York City or surrounding areas, I hope you'll pop in for the event, it sounds like it's going to be a blast! I'll be here. In Ohio. With the snow. And the lack of fun author jam sessions and signings. *dramatic sigh*

Barnes & Noble at East 86th
150 East 86th Street
New York City, NY
Thursday, January 19th
In attendance: Barnabas Miller, Libba Bray, Natalie Standiford and Dan Ehrenhaft

One of the songs they will be performing is "written and performed" by the protagonist of Rock God, B.J Levine, and you can find the song, "Three Notes", on the Facebook Fan Page! You can also follow Mr. Miller tweeting as B.J. here.

ROCK GOD (from Goodreads)

B.J. Levine, a mild-mannered, 13-year-old boy voted most likely to become a tax accountant, moves to New York City and discovers his true purpose: he must transform himself into the most almighty rocker since Jon Bon Jovi. B.J. battles his father's disappointment, his mother's disapproval, his lack of apparent talent, and a secret society of middle-aged bikers as he gathers a ragtag band and embarks on a real life rock Odyssey.

On a side note, I've been horrible lately about announcing giveaway winners, I'm so sorry! The winners are always chosen and emailed right away but I'm bad about posting them here on the blog. Thanks so much for everyone who takes the time to enter and to Teen Book Scene and Kismet Book Touring for organizing such amazing tours and giveaways!
