Shiny Rock Stars!
by Sylvia A. Winters
So way back in 2012 I started writing a story. A story for LT3’s Rocking Hard submission call about, you guessed it, a rock star. Well, she wishes she were some big star, really, but she could totally be one; she has all the finer qualities of a true rock star, even if the majority of her gigs are local. But she’s also pretty happy with where she is right now, doing what she loves. I think it’s fair to say Alisha’s pretty content with her life.
Sian has never really thought of anything much besides her grades and her family, and how much trouble she’ll be in if her dad ever finds out she and her friend sneak out late at night to bars and gigs. She always thought she was happy with her life, that she had everything she needed, just not as much independence from her parents as she’d like at 19.
And then she meets Alisha, and they both realise that something pretty big has been missing from their lives. And now that they’ve found it, the only question is whether they can keep it.
This week I got a lovely e-mail with the cover art for the anthology and the release schedule. I love this cover. It’s so bright and colourful and it makes me very happy.
Keeping it Together will be the last story to come out of the last volume of the Rocking Hard serial anthology. It feels like a long wait ’til the 2nd of April, but I’m sure I’ll be writing plenty to keep me occupied ’til then, and there are so many awesome stories running in this thing that are definitely worth checking out (:
