“Dunn writes great entertainment. Fans of towering beehives and classic hip-swaying, harmony-driven pop will definitely want to take a look.”

-Publishers Weekly

 

 

Once a high-flying girl group, The Annas were at the top of the rock ‘n’ roll charts. But when the British Invasion knocked them off their perch, lead singer Anna Dubower fell hard. After mounting an unsuccessful comeback attempt, Anna winds up mysteriously dead, putting an end to the era of The Annas.

 

But songwriter Dink Stephenson still carries a torch for Anna 30 years later, and decides to dig into her murder and finally get to the bottom of her untimely demise. With a quirky cast of characters and a fast-moving plot, Meet the Annas is the book world’s answer to a catchy bubblegum tune.

 

Once you’ve finished Meet the Annas, take another trip down memory lane with one of Dunn’s other rock ‘n’ roll novels.

 

 


Free Fridays Recommends

 

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Robert recommends:

 

 

 

There are many great Beatles books, but Jonathan Gould's Can't Buy Me Love is the one that first sprang to mind. Gould covers the lads' story every which way, as history, myth, literary crusade, and down and out rock n' roll. I highly recommend it.

 

By the way, John Lennon makes a cameo in Meet the Annas. In fact, all the Beatles worshipped the girl groups my novel is based on. Happy reading!

 


 

NOOK owners: go to shop and search for “Robert Dunn” to download his rock ‘n’ roll novels.

Thank you so much, I go to sleep at night confident that I won't run out of things to read anytime soon thanks to you!

Please note: the two H. P. Mallory books are no longer free, but thanks to Butterflly13 for an additional list!

 

TGIF!  :smileyvery-happy:

With the popularity of the H. P. Mallory books I have double checked the link and did a book title search, the books are still free but there are two different links for each title, one link is $2.99 and the other is free the link that I have posted should be the free link, but as always double check because you never know when they will change.  I have downloaded books that were free one day and $9.99 the next, have a great weekend.

tst63 - I just looked at the HP Mallory books and the Nook book version is free.  The link goes to a page that includes paperback, marketplace, and then Nook. 

 

I agree TGIF!
