The Honky Tonk Life or, “Put a Flashing Neon Light on My Tombstone” is by far award-winning author RD Foster’s best work to date; an instant classic, reminiscent of a time when music was king and all the world its subjects. A sort of coming of age story in reverse that combines all the best and all the worst of the elements of the old-school music world. Set concurrently in the 1990s, as well as in the turbulent 1960s, it features a unique twist on the never-ending quest for stardom and fame. Mysterious and alluring things begin to happen to California surfer boy, turned country-and-western musician, Brady Schmalzie. On the brink of financial ruin, bankruptcy and foreclosure, and with no possible solutions in sight, Brady receives a letter from an attorney in Fort Worth, Texas. Brady, along with his golden goddess girlfriend, Honey B Goode, travels to Texas where they find that the truth is sometimes so much stranger than fiction. So begins Brady’s sojourn into another world and time where things may or may not be all that they seem. Neat, witty and with more twists and turns than the US Interstate system can provide, you will ride along with a unique cast of characters that only RD Foster’s mind can imagine. Topped off with conspiracy, organized crime and a lot of beautiful women, sex and wild partying, “The Honky Tonk Life…or Put a Flashing Neon Light on My Tombstone” will grab you hard and never let you go. So hop onboard the 1957 GMC 4104 motor coach and join Brady, Billy and the rest, on a ride of a lifetime with RD Foster behind the wheel.
