WASHINGTON, June 29, 2014 – Rick Springfield, Grammy Award winning rocker and dreamy television soap opera star has been reinventing himself as a novelist, this time penning Magnificant Vibrations, placing the author on the New York Times bestseller list.
The questions being asked are of the metaphysical kind, but with a bit of rock and roll sensibility as Horatio, aka Bobby, Cotton asks “Why are we here? What is love? Is there a Loch Ness monster?” and “Does God send text messages?”
The story has our protagonist discovering a direct line to God and send him and his companion Alice on a spiritual, sometimes carnal melding of sexual expression, journey to save the planet.
In interviews Springfield says he always wanted to write novels, however as a young man in Australia he noticed girls were much more interested in the rocker than the geek behind the typewriter.
From the book’s release:
After stealing a mysterious self-help book called Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purposefrom a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scrawled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God. This launches Bobby on a whimsical quest, serendipitously accompanied by a breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp travel companion named Alice.
Together the pair sets out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation—and possibly save the planet.
By turns hilarious, poignant, over-the-top, and deeply meaningful, MAGNIFICENT VIBRATION is a highly original novel about the biggest questions one man—or mankind—has ever asked.
