Blurb Blitz Tour: A GUITAR WITH TOO MANY STRINGS BY JOHN MELLOR




Congratulations to Debra G., winner of the tour prize and to A Book Addict's Delight, the host winner.

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Blurb Blitz Tour for A Guitar With Too Many Strings by John Mellor, a Literary Fiction/Magical Realism book available now. The tour will run August 25, 2014 to September 19, 2014 and this tour will not include interviews or guest blogs; however, a blurb, excerpt and author bio will be provided to every host for inclusion on their blog. Additionally, a PDF, Mobi and ePub copy of this story is available for review in conjunction with a promo post.

John be awarding an Autographed copy of the original paperback version of the A Guitar With Too Many Strings to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour, and a copy of the original paperback version of the A Guitar With Too Many Strings to a randomly drawn host.

"Madness dances with brilliance" - a wild rock singer, a lonely white dolphin and other unworldly misfits emerge from their strange stories to challenge a young boy as to why. A gaunt tree leans wearily over them, like a guitar with too many strings. And the Angel leans on her gate, watching. - "Never seen anything quite like this"; "A unique and wonderful manuscript".

"This is not a normal book with a normal story..."

It is the story of a rock singer and the unearthly harmonies plucked from a strange 13-string guitar; and of a bumptious honeybee encountering a strange little man on a planet that isn't there; and a tired, cynical old philosopher conducting a strange debate with a stone in the woods.

It is the story of a shipwrecked sailor, whose pet egg hatches into a strange seagull; and a worn-out, unworldly old lady dying in a strange land where no-one dreams; and a sad, downtrodden gardener tending a Wise Woman's strange, disquieting weed.

It is the story of a lonely white dolphin, and a tree - curiously shaped like a guitar with too many strings.

And of a young boy who discovers - with a little help from an Angel - The Seven Gifts - that came to Earth

"A most unusual and beautiful story"

"This is a book to make you think"
