FLX Wine Diary: Day 4 – ROCK STARS OF WINE AMERICA #2: AZ with MJK: I Could Drink a Case of You IS OUT!

I am feeling enormously relieved after completing a writing marathon that was the reason for the long radio silence here. You see, I was almost totally preoccupied by the intense last days of writing and corrections to my e-book ROCK STAR OF WINE AMERICA #2: AZ with MJK: I Could Drink a Case of You. Finally in the early hours of this morning it went on sale at the Kindle Store at Amazon. Please note that if you don’t own a Kindle all you need to do is download the free Kindle app on your device, then head to the Kindle Store. Here is the link to the right page:

Unlike #1 that was set in the Baltimore of 1985, ROCK STARS OF WINE AMERICA #2 describes events in Arizona and NYC stretching from November 14th, 2014 thru November 17th, 2015. It’s hard for me to imagine how a book can be more up to date than this, yet also takes it’s subject seriously. My subject is the wine industry of Arizona – one of the ultimate “wrong” places for grape growing and winemaking in America – the singer-winemaker Maynard James Keenan of Puscifer & Toole and Caduceus Cellars & Merkin Vineyards, and other leading winemakers in the state like Kent & Lisa Callaghan of Callaghan Winery and Todd & Kelly Bostock of Dos Cabezas Wineworks. They are true American pioneers and this is a rock ‘n’ roll tale that massively pushes the envelope of what a wine book can be. If you want a regular wine book this work is not for you. However, if you are looking for excitement and adventure then follow Hunter S. Thompson’s recommendation, “buy the ticket, take the trip.”
