Adventures of a Dark Duke: The Pin is a contemporary story of a British indie pop star who lives a secret life as an adventurer.

Looking for material for new songs and hooked on adventure, Duke sticks a pin in a map and follows it religiously for a month to have the adventure of a life time, with Florida, Cuba and Mexico making up the colourful backdrop. From danger with a stranger to a poignant love story, to a hidden Hollywood A-list sect, the stories and characters keep on coming and so does he, for he likes to live a very erotic lifestyle and living life on the edge is what it's all about.

The book is like a Russian doll with stories within stories that have many twists and turns. It's full of sharply drawn characters who often have a unique way with words.

It is often told in the first person narrative making it like virtual reality for books.

So, if the title name conjures up a 'Mills and Boon' romantic royal character, sorry to disappoint - this is a novel for those who don't shy away from erotic content and like something a bit more cutting edge and contemporary.

Rumour has it that it may also be based on a true story.

This is the first in the 'Adventures of a Dark Duke' series of fiction books from author and multi platform artist Russell C. Brennan.

PS: We like the idea of a novel that is an ideal size to fit in your pocket or handbag making it easier to carry around like a traditional pulp fiction novel. Today, some call this a novella but to us, a novel is just a novel and a great story is a great story and this is one area where size should not matter!

Finally, it's not often you can win decent money & music from just reading a book but with this book you can. (Full details inside).

Below is a flavour of the book and an excerpt of just a few of the many reviews on Amazon UK.

Russell is an established Multi-Platform Artist who has made a big dent in both music and photography. He has had two non-fiction books out 'Voyeurs Welcome' a collection of his iconic photos, song lyrics and award winning poems & Music Business Bastards (How to do well in the music business without getting ripped off). He sold his first film script at 17 but a bad experience within the publishing industry saw him shy away from putting his first novel 'Everybody Has A Once Upon a Time' out around the same time and he instead concentrated on his music career that became successful with over 250 releases as a record producer and 50 as a songwriter as well a being a top D.J at one point.
