David Bond's "Sweet Music"


Title: Sweet Music
Publisher: Desert Breeze Publishing

Cover blurb:  Keith Weaver (Jessie’s brother from The Attaché), now a construction contractor, is hired by Allison Albright’s parents to remodel their house. Keith faces difficult financial and personal issues, with choices in front of him with no easy solution. Allison is engaged to a wealthy land developer. After postponing their wedding, setting a new date isn’t high on her fiancé’s priority list. Then, a diabetes diagnosis rocks Allison’s world, but so does Keith Weaver.

1) How did this story come to you?
This is book 2 in a trilogy. All 3 books feature a medical condition I have. Blindness (bk. 1, The Attaché), diabetes (bk. 2, Sweet Music), and epilepsy (bk. 3, Out Of The Desert).

2) Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
Part of a 3-book contract. Actually, I have 2, 3-book contracts with Desert Breeze. The series called, All Things Are Possible, featuring Sweet Music as bk. 2, and the second series, A Time For Everything.

3) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.Perhaps the 3 medical conditions I happen to have! Really, I’m pretty much a no-frills guy. Let’s see… Okay. I bowled a 113 as a blind person, better than my wife’s score! And, not sure if this is what you’re looking for, but I don’t use my cane around the house, or to take the trash can out to the curb. My collapsible cane remains in the car, although, I do have a backup cane available for my use in the garage should I need it.

4) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
I’m working on book 3 in the All Things Are Possible series, Out Of The Desert.

5) Parting comments?
I think Sweet Music is my best novel so far. This is a learning experience, and I’m so thankful to be blessed with the creativity and desire to write Christian fiction.

  4. Hi,

    do the books need to be read in order, or do they stand alone well?

    Very interesting thank you.

  6. Hey, guys! Dave asked me to post the comment below from him. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi, ladies!

    Great question about the need to read my books in order. And the answer is, no. At least, it’s not an absolute necessity. Each of books 1 in the 2 series has the 2 main characters of course, along with 2 other characters who play minor roles. I planned to present these minor characters in starring roles in the subsequent novels.

    For books 2, the settings are not even the same as in books 1. At this point, in books 3, the settings will revert back to the fictitious communities of books 1.

    One commenter referred to the number of people getting diabetes these days. An FYI: In Sweet Music, my character gets type 1 diabetes, which is not the “popular” diabetes everybody and their uncle seems to be getting these days. This is because, first, I am a type 1 diabetic, which means I am insulin dependent. And second, type 1 diabetes is a much more symptomatic disease, which I am all too familiar with, and which as in my own life, creates for some interesting experiences for my character in Sweet Music.

    Thanks for leaving your comments, and I’ll be stopping by again.

    Dave
