One Man's Novel Plan to Introduce His Music to the World Proves the Devil is in the Details
By: TouchPoint Press
"I had always wanted to write a book, so I decided to put the songs into a story and publish them all at once," says Howe, whose longtime dream was to publish the songs he had written over the years. Howe worked the lyrics into the narrative to convey the inner thoughts of the two protagonists, Julie and Hunter.
The songs featured in the novel will be published in three albums along with the book. Christian themes can be found in both the novel and in Howe's lyrics. Howe says, "One of the songs in the book is titled, 'I Stand Down.' I've struggled with God over the years and am saying in that song, 'Reveal yourself to me!' I realized that through my struggles, He is doing exactly that—revealing himself to me."
About the Book
Julie Christianson is a beautiful, talented voice major at a renowned private college. She has mastered her curriculum but struggles with her creative writing. She is popular—the envy of friends who love her deeply. Fascinated by the talented Hunter Watkins's stage presence and song writing capabilities, Julie solves her writing problem by recruiting him as the newest member of her band.
Scratch is the Devil in mortal form, disguised as a British guitar virtuoso. He arrives in town in order to work his way into their band.
Drake is the Director of Angel Affairs. He is certain that Scratch is going to tempt Julie and Hunter to try and steal their music, and their souls. The decision is made to dispatch an angel who is attempting to gain her wings.
Krystal Watkins is Hunter's sister, who is tragically killed. She accepts Drake's heavenly assignment, in order to gain her wings.
Having never encountered a girl like Julie and taken by her charismatic charm, Hunter gives in to her every wish, and they fall in love. But what they don't know is that their devil of a guitar player has a great deal of contempt for such perfect harmony. Can the Angels help mend a heart that should never be broken?
