Daron's Guitar Chronicles: Volume One Summary

Daron's Guitar Chronicles: Volume One - Volume One of Daron's Guitar Chronicles begins when Daron finds himself at a bar in Providence, filling in for the regular guitarist in a hair metal cover band. He's not thrilled about it, but a gig's a gig. He's too young to drink and trying not to think about how his scholarship money has run out. He'll need to figure out a way to make a living, much less stay in music school. Everything changes, though, when his former mentor walks into the bar.

Winner of the Rose and Bay Award for Crowdfunded Fiction!

"For me, Daron is one of those rare fictional characters that I have a hard time believing does not actually exist on the physical plane. He is just too real. Part of it is that Daron is only a couple of years older than me and the way the 80s are brought to life here reminds me very much of my own coming of age: the musical references, the language, the AIDS scare, the technology, the hair...Most of all, though, it is the fact that Daron is an extremely well written character. He grows and changes and engages."
