Synopsis

Whether his name is new to you or you’re already an avid fan of his popular blog sites, a frequent reader of his entertainment features or have enjoyed his underground independent music over the years, author Christopher Long has a fascinating story to share with readers everywhere in the pages of his new book, "C’MON! – My Story of Rock, Ruin and Revelation."


OVERVIEW
Uniquely described as "The Wonder Years"-meets-"The Wall" at a Big Tent Revival, "C’MON!" offers a bold message of faith based on author Christopher Long’s lifelong connection to the entertainment world.

Long recounts his personal experiences with candor and wit – from growing up with Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt to being physically threatened by Gene Simmons of Kiss to hanging out at Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate to his ultimate life-changing spiritual awakening.

This compelling and entertaining memoir features dozens of photos as well as hilarious original illustrations by cartoonist, Wendrell Tillett, and a foreword by Jeff “Blando” Bland, guitarist for the platinum-selling rock band Slaughter and Vince Neil.


HIGHLIGHTS
Author Christopher Long tells his story of faith, family and the pursuit of fame and fortune in a glitzy and often morally bankrupt industry in his typical engaging, conversational style.

"C’MON!" is a powerful personal testimony, chock-full of anecdotes and insider stories:

•ROCK: Long’s first-hand accounts of iconic figures from Brad Pitt, Gene Simmons, Donald Trump and President George H.W. Bush to riveting tales of murder, drug deals, backstage meltdowns and more!

•RUIN: Deeply personal and compelling experiences, from divorce and depression to career frustrations and addictions.

•REVELATION: An open, honest and detailed account of the 2010 spiritual awakening that led him from the world of “Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll” into the world of Christian ministry.
