Dark Star Shining
You never know who you’ll meet when you walk into a bookstore. A few months ago, I walked into a local Lifeway store and was accosted by a friendly-looking guy behind a table stacked with books. His name was Creston Mapes, and he was there to promote his first novel, Dark Star, published by Multnomah.
Creston happens to live just down the road from me. Literally. Can’t be more than five minutes away. And we have some mutual friends. (Hi, David and Michelle!) So the connections made it even more fun to meet Creston and buy his book.
Dark Star takes a look into the crazy world of a rock star accused of murdering his personal psychic. Don’t get scared, now. Yucky subjects are handled tastefully, but the book does explore the issues that can accompany success in secular rock ‘n roll. It also explores the grace of God that drugged-out, bedevilled Everett needs if he’s to escape the hell he created for himself. It’s a good, fast-paced story that will keep you reading.
