Every Sunday, I try to post an excerpt from my novel, The Awakening of Russell Henderson. Here’s another. The book is available at

It was heady times. Karen and Mick became inseparable. I had never seen her so happy. I was still worried about her, but that passed slowly away. Mick began to join us for music every day. He was a good singer and could do harmony with Hanna much better than I could. We were working up several long sets.

Mick came to practice on a Tuesday afternoon. “Hey, I can get us a gig at the bar I where I work. My boss is up for it. Friday night if we want. You up for it?”

Hanna spoke first, “How long and what time?”

“We could go on early, 5:00 for the after work crowd. Play until nine?”

Hanna said, “I’d be up for it. I think we have enough material. I’ll do a set list. Maybe three sets? Fifteen or twenty minute breaks and it should work out. What about you Russell?”

“Why not? Sounds fun. Sure. Let’s do it.”
