"The Final Note'
By Sally A. Schwartz
Up-and-coming writer Lans Hobart is
well-versed in the music industry. When I heard about his
self-published novel, "The Final Note," I knew it was a must-read.
Hobartís love story centers around Skeet Seaton, a very talented and
admired bass player. He is interviewed by a beautiful journalist named
Chapin, who becomes the girl of his dreams. The book takes a twist as it
dips into the love and depths of a friendship that crosses over to the
During the read, I found myself laughing
out loud at some of the shenanigans that Hobart shares, knowing full
well that these kinds of things actually do take place. As I reached the
final pages of the novel, I felt that Hobart could have played it out
for a few more chapters, delving into the friendship and bond that was
created between Skeet and the character, Stan Balch. Musicians have many
stories to share about old band mates and their antics as friendships
were forged. It also had room to discuss why a musical friendship
goes to a different level.
"The Final Note" left me deep in
thought-- the love of friendship knows no boundaries. We may not always
stay in touch through the years, but the friendships we forge will
always keep us connected. I hope that you will give this mini novel a
read-- it was easy and fun. You can find it at Amazon.com.
