I am so very proud to announce to you that today is the release day of FORTUNE CALLING by one of my favorite Authors, Hunter. S. Jones. The latest contribution to her oeuvre is now available on Amazon, so be sure to get this short but powerful story!


Fortune Calling

The first installment in The Fortune Series.

The Story of Dallas Fortune.

Guitars. Hillbilly Music. Nashville, Tennessee.

Dallas Fortune is a small town girl with a gift for playing guitar. A member of her family has played the Grand Ol Opry since it began as a simple radio show in 1925. But, they are the minstrels, the troubadours--session players--not stars.
Dallas lives her life on the road. She’s just another guitar player with a dream until she finds an antique blue mandolin in a pawn shop. Her life comes into focus as the enchantment of the mandolin captivates her audiences. The Guitar God of Nashville beckons her. Everything is there for Dallas at last, until a stage accident sends her home and shatters her dreams. Blow after blow she fights the hand of fate. Is she destined to lose out in life? Hope, dreams, and love seem to be just out of reach. Every girl dreams of a happy ending. Dallas Fortune has the best Fairy Godmother in Country Music history. Will she help make Dallas’ dreams come true?
Is the future among the stars, in the cards or locked in your heart?


I love anything that Hunter S. Jones writes and this book was no exception! In fact so much so, that I had to immediately email her to ask if the characters were real musicians and artists.
The book was well written and very realistic. Dallas Fortune is on a mission of self-discovery after a terrible accident two years prior had killed her dream of touring with the biggest Country singer of all time. Her relationship with the love of her life, (which had been on and off with for almost twenty years), had ended once again. She is lost. As she contemplates her past failures and missed opportunities, she sees a bright neon sign on a building she passes. She takes it as a sign that she is meant to enter that building and have her future foretold. Once inside she meets a very handsome fortune teller and he reveals to her the very thing she had been waiting for. Does his prediction come true?
The ending lends a moral to the story and a lesson we can all learn from.
My only disappointment was that (TO ME) the story felt a bit flat, with no build up, no climax and no twists to speak of. Having said that, it is still a wonderful story with a life lesson learned!  Even though this is what I consider a booklet (17 pages in total) it is part of a series, so there will be more to come, which I am looking forward to.


Writer. Exile on Peachtree Street.
Lover of all the finer things in life.
The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. I was always a complex kid. My first published stories were for a local underground rock publication in Nashville. Since then, I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel and history.
Currently, I have a music/entertainment blog My debut novella, Fables of the Reconstruction, was published in 2012.  Moon Rose Publishing included my novella, Magic in Memphis, available as a short story on Amazon, in their anthology, A Celtic Collection.
Edgar Allan Poe and Anne Rice have always fascinated me, although like any Southern girl, I will always idolize Margaret Mitchell for writing Gone With The Wind. I also adore the works of John Grisham, and own a huge selection of his books. I live in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, my books, too many clothes, too many shoes and way too many stacks of notepads and journals.
October 2013 saw the launch of a novel collaboration, SEPTEMBER ENDS, contemporary fiction laced with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound by poetry. This novel is written with an anonymous English poet. SEPTEMBER ENDS has been labeled an “Indie Sensation” due the critical reception and international recognition the novel has received.
My newest venture is The Fortune Series. The Story of Dallas Fortune. This collection will be a series of short stories and novelettes chronicling the lives and loves of Dallas Fortune.
Much more is on the way in 2014. Follow me to get all the latest announcements and updates.
