For those of you who are more than a little impatient to get a look inside Shattered Hearts, here’s a short extract to keep you going til December.
As the sky lit up before him, Jake reflected on the last few months. When he’d left Rehoboth in January, the beach had been covered in eight inches of snow. Now, in the third week in June, it looked as though it was going to be a beautiful summer’s day. This was the longest period of time that he’d spent away from home and, for the past ten weeks of the tour, his heart had been yearning for the sights and sounds of the ocean and the beach house.
Life over the past five years had become more and more demanding as Silver Lake had gone from strength to strength and Weigh Station had enjoyed a successful revival. Juggling musical commitments, recording sessions and tours for two of the planet’s biggest bands had been a logistical nightmare. He’d long since lost count of the number of shows he’d played, finding it harder and harder to remember where he was and who he was with. If it wasn’t for the journal he kept, Jake would have lost track of time and place entirely.
On the flight home, he’d been sitting between Grey and Jethro, having lost the coin toss to see who would take the middle seat. As Grey had slept soundly at the window, Jake had confided in the band’s manager that he didn’t want to even think about music until at least the fall. Understanding completely, the older man had nodded his silent agreement, noting how raw and hoarse Silver Lake’s vocalist’s voice was sounding.
Now, as he sat watching the sun rise, Jake was wondering if he would be able to sing again by fall even if he wanted to. Ghosts of a past duet with Tori from Molton were tormenting him. The last three shows had really put a strain on him and, by the end of Flyin’ High in Los Angeles, his voice was gone. A sign to take a much-needed rest perhaps he thought.
Lost in his thoughts, he sat enjoying the view and the tranquillity of the beach.
The familiar screech of the patio door to the sun room opening startled him back to the present. He listened closely wondering who was about to approach him.
Before he could turn round, he felt sand spray over him as Melody threw her arms around his neck. As he hugged her close, she smothered his face with kisses.
“I’ve missed you, Daddy,” she said as he pulled her into his lap.
“Bet I’ve missed you more, Miss M.”
“You sound funny,” commented the little girl screwing her face into a frown.
“Too many shows. Too many songs,” said Jake quietly.
“You need the icky medicine Mommy gave me when I had strep.”
“Maybe. I think I’ll start with some warm water and honey first though,” he replied. “Now, are you going to make me breakfast?”
Giggling, Melody shook her tousled blonde head.
“Is your Mommy awake?”
Again, Melody shook her head. “She was drawing last night.”
“And I’ll bet she was drawing most of the night,” added Jake, knowing all too well how easily Lori lost track of time when she was working.
If you want to know more, you’ll need to be patient until 6th December 😉
