As soon as her fingers started to make the guitar strings tremble, my heart did too, and I knew at that very moment that I had to talk to her. Her voice came a little afterward, challenging her own tune, flowing in unison with it. She paused for a moment and I could have sworn she was looking at me from behind those glasses. Or maybe she wasn't. Then she went back to singing and I melted all over again.

Perfect cover art! My only disappointment was that it was really just one short story rather than the exciting novel I was hoping for.

Perhaps you could turn it into a collection of musically inclined short stories? That'd be a fun read!

Please check out my novel SuperNOVA and leave your thoughts on it. Thanks :D
