Good books come from good songs.
Author Mac Fortner has been writing songs most of his life. What are they? They’re short stories. Making novels from songs seems to be the logical move.
“It works,” he says. “The story is already there.”
His first book–Rum City Bar– takes a young man from the mid-west to Nashville to be a star. The action moves from Nashville to the Florida Keys and then onto the fictional island of Rumora. It’s full of action and humor. The lyrics–“Sittin’ in Rum City Bar-Playin’ my old guitar– inspired the book.
Mac has already written and released the sequel– Battle For Rumora,” also inspired from a song.

His most popular book–Knee Deep–has the sequel–Bloodshot–coming out soon.

It isn’t easy to sit at a computer all day when there is so much to do, but today I thoroughly enjoyed it. Tomorrow it’s supposed to rain again. Can’t wait.
