Rick Springfield to publish debut novel in 2014
NEW YORK (AP) — Creative writing was Rick Springfield’s first love, and he’s returning to it with his debut novel.
A Tuesday news release says the musician-actor will release “Magnificent Vibration” in May 2014 on the Simon & Schuster imprint Touchstone.
Springfield is best known as the multi-platinum “Jessie’s Girl” singer and “General Hospital” star, but his memoir “Late, Late at Night” was a surprise New York Times best-seller. He said in the statement the experience “reminded me how much I love the craft.”
Springfield’s novel is about a tough-times protagonist who receives a 1-800 phone connection with God through a self-help book. The book comes during a busy period for the musician. He recently participated in Dave Grohl’s “Sound City” documentary and album and appeared on “Californication” and “Hawaii Five-O.”
