Luna C, mastermind behind Kniteforce Records has only gone and written a book!



How To Squander Your Potential - The Smart Es & Kniteforce Story

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1105566390/

its a fantastic read! once I had started I found it very hard to put down, which was amusing as the cover of the first edition is much more modest than this one!
Luna C takes you on the rollercoaster of a ride which is the music bizz. Many tales are told, lessons are learned (which we could a do with learning i'm sure) in this honest, reflective look at the scene from start to where we are today.

buy it! read words kids!

The saying "never judge a book by its cover" is a pile of shit

I don't read books.... But.... I do pick books for my misses, I never read any part of them not even the back, I purely go off the cover... Yet she loves them :)

If you can't be arsed & go to some kind of effort with the cover then chances are then contents are going to be the same...

I can understand why "hardcore" people are "ravin" about this book because it's Luna C.... But that will be the main reason

Thanks for the news/reminder! I read about that book probably a year ago...I guess it was on Luna C's homepage and you could check out a chapter beforehand. I had totally forgotten about it and now bought it right away!

I just realized this would be an excellent thing to read while on my flight overseas for my upcoming trip! Is amazon the only outlet selling it?

On your head be it. Its a fantastic read, and you've been lulled into judging it before reading it, which is a mistake you're even aware of.
Its brilliantly written, and all Luna-C's own work. He's not a designer or illustrator, but a flashy cover is what the items being sold for. For those who care, its worth reading it. For those so blindly judgmental, I pity you... Having read the book, I can say that its fantastically structured, and surprisingly well written. Luna-C is a keen reader and that's paid dividends for the book.

Surprisingly since the book has come out, Ive had to tell a few people who Luna-C is. Those who already know will be aware of the legacy and story he has to tell. Thats a selling point in itself.

The book sample alone had me hooked enough to want to buy it.

Went to my library to loan it out last week, surprise surprise they didn't have it, the lady checked all Denbighshire ones aswell, no luck, but she did say if its not there in a few weeks then they will buy it just to loan it for me, now thats what I call service! BTW for all those people who will say just buy it, I have never bought a book and the last one I read was one of them fighting fantasy books when I was 13.

first time for everything doc!

i just finished the hunger games trilogy, it was a good read, but I learnt absolutely nothing about the music scene from it - I highly recommend luna c's book over the hunger games trilogy if you want to read something about music!
