87 Pages, Paperback, eBook
ISBN: 1983201006
Imprint: Independently published

My first foray into fiction. An intimate, hopefully funny and emotional glimpse into the obsessive world of vinyl record collecting. A tale of chasing your dreams. Everybody Wins (Except for the Losers) is a day in the life story of one independent record stores employees, customers and visiting musicians.

Andy Scott runs the record store of his dreams – Snap Crackle Pops Records. As long as his employees: Rachel, Justin and Nickolas don’t screw everything up; the suppliers don’t miss deadlines; the musicians, including recent Reality TV contestant Jaz show up and, nobody gets into a fight; this could be the most memorable Record Store Day ever.
