(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, June 12, 2019 ) Rock-n-roll music reached an all-time high in the sixties and seventies, and so the groupie movement was born. Female groupies gained notoriety for their devotion both to the music and the artists who created it, and Detroit author Christine Fowler was one of them. Her new memoir, Becoming Rosie: Memoir of a Groupie, has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company. Struggling to raise two young children alone in the 1970s while attempting to grow up herself, Christine had a passion for music and the music scene, and she was searching for love. In her roller-coaster ride of a memoir, she describes how she secured a waitress position at the concert venue known as Pine Knob, in Clarkston, MI, which led to a position at Charley’s Crab in Troy adjacent to the Northfield Hilton, where all the bands in town stayed during their brief time in town. Christine’s free-thinking, hippie mentality brought her many discoveries of the female mystique and the value of lessons learned. With humor, grace and relevance to the MeToo movement, her novel is a fascinating peek into the past.
At 312 pages, Becoming Rosie: Memoir of a Groupie is available online through Amazon and Barnes and Noble for a maximum trade discount in quantities of 10 or more and is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the memoir category.
