DARON’S GUITAR CHRONICLES #7
Release Date: August 4, 2015
Sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Coming out and coming of age in the days of AIDS, MTV, Reaganomics, and Just Say No.
Daron Marks is a young guitar player with a dream, make it big like the guys he grew up idolizing in New Jersey–or at least escape his dysfunctional family. He makes it as far as music school in Rhode Island, and the rock clubs of Boston beckon him. But it’s hard to succeed from the closet.
A story of how finding one’s self is key to finding love, and loving one’s self is key to loving another.
BLURB ~ #7
When last we saw guitar prodigy Daron Marks, he was on a beach in Australia on the very last day of 1989. A new decade has dawned and Daron has little choice but to embrace change in the face of Ziggy going AWOL and poor record sales. Daron embarks on a journey of artistic growth, studying more styles of guitar and music, a journey that takes him from Virginia to Spain to New York City.
But while he prepares for whatever may come next in his career, is Daron prepared for his inevitable reunion with Ziggy? Ziggy is back and he’s got a plan.
Volume 7 of Daron’s Guitar Chronicles collects chapters 505 through 584 from the popular web serial by Cecilia Tan. Daron’s Guitar Chronicles won the Rose & Bay Award for Best Crowdfunded Fiction in 2010
“For me, Daron is one of those rare fictional characters that I have a hard time believing does not actually exist on the physical plane. He is just too real. Part of it is that Daron is only a couple of years older than me and the way the 80s are brought to life here reminds me very much of my own coming of age: the musical references, the language, the AIDS scare, the technology, the hair… Most of all, though, it is the fact that Daron is an extremely well written character. He grows and changes and engages.” —Reviews by Jessewave

trained on me, and she doesn’t move. I nod my head at them again and throw her a grunt. Folding her arms, she raises a brow in question and still refuses to open the bags. All she did was draw my attention to her tits pushed against her arms. She may be my peace, but she also gives my beast all the power. When I’ve fucked a woman in the past, it’s been for me.

I need to know she’s strong enough. I can’t speak to her in this state. If I do, then she will know how much I’m holding myself back. My cock is throbbing, desperate to be deep inside her. I want to fill her until she can’t be without me. I want her to breathe for me. When I accept her peace, I give up control of everything else. The beast could spring.
