1) Terry Blackwood is the quintessential bad boy rocker, right down to the physical expression of his angst. He's a bastard through and through and I expected to spend most of the book disliking him intensely. Then he made the very mature decision to woo not only Henry but the reader, by accepting his faults... and then turning around to address them. As happens in real life, the fix to his problems didn't come without effort, making him a truly likeable character by the end of the book. I really enjoyed Henry's journey as well, and the expression of just how terrifying it must have been to be himself in the 70s. I also enjoyed Ellis' idea of a talented musician who didn't need to "live the life."
2) One of the best books I've read all year. The characters developed and grew over time in a way few authors manage. 
3) Incredibly well-written and insightful, The One Thing I Know is a story of profound love, excruciating loss, and poignant redemption. Keelan Ellis's writing is terribly thought-provoking and emotion-wringing, all while it leaves you feeling whole. A highly recommended read.
4) I really enjoyed this book. The plot was fast paced and kept my attention. The dialogue real and the emotional struggle authintic

Talented studio musician, Henry Cole, is offered the dream job of touring with popular rock band, the Vulgar Details. Things aren't all rosy, though, as he is hired to replace Dell Miller, creative force behind the band, who recently flamed-out in a car accident.

Henry is all too aware that he's no replacement for someone like Dell. He's not the only one who feels that way, either. Terry Blackwood, band front man, has been giving him a hard time even before the tour start. He seems to resent Henry's presence beyond all reason. What Henry doesn't know is that Terry and Dell's relationship was both intensely close and fraught with conflict.

Terry's grief over Dell's death is overwhelming and threatens to destroy not only the band but his life. It doesn't help that the new member of the band makes him feel things he doesn't want to. Worse, when he sings, Henry sounds just like the man Terry cared so deeply for.

With so much at stake, everything could come crashing down around them and mean the end for the Vulgar Details. Or, just maybe, Henry and Terry will find the one thing they need most.

Sometimes redemption comes from the last place you expect to find it.

Hi Elisa,

I'm leaving a message here that you will hopefully see. I received an email message from you this morning to which I replied, but judging by your second email, you clearly never received my reply (and, I'm guessing, other replies). I think there is an issue with your email server!
