A gift from Rocket 88 Books
We hope you’re enjoying this special time of gift giving, and we’d like you to accept this gift from us: a free e-book, Gorm Henrik Rasmussen’s critically acclaimed biography of Nick Drake, Pink Moon.
Pink Moon was the first biography of Nick Drake, though from 1980 until now it was only available in Danish. It remains the only account to include exclusive interviews with the singer’s parents, Rodney and Molly Drake.
This year we published the book in English for the first time. Gorm Henrik also took the opportunity to significantly update his work to reveal more from his visits with the Drakes at their home in Far Leys and from Nick’s friends of the time.
It is a wonderful book that deserves a wider readership, so while it usually sells for £6.50 or $10.40 we are making the e-book available to you for free on Amazon until Saturday. Have a read and if you like it, please tell your friends about it.
You can download it directly to your Kindle, or to a whole range of Apple, Windows and Android devices via the Kindle application. Check out Amazon’s help pages for more information on using Kindle and the Kindle applications, and don’t forget to let us know what you think of the book on Facebook and Twitter.
…and a Rocket 88 new year!
It’s nearly a year since Rocket 88 took flight with Pink Moon as our launch title. Since then, we’ve marvelled at the art and music of eighties icons Talk Talk, been charmed by teenage Sex Pistol Glen Matlock, and immersed ourselves in the lavish official biography of Fairport Convention. We finished the year with a look at the music of Neil Young and the comedy of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.
There’s much, much more to come in 2013, so please join us for the ride! In the mean time, we wish you a restful festive season and happy reading.
