Life is chaos,” author Victor Penro states. “The only constant is the decisions a person makes as a reaction to that chaos.” In his new book “Crumble” (published by iUniverse), Penro takes readers into the chaotic and broken life of Kent Robbs as he struggles to create a life that is, he hopes, even a little bit better.

Kent Robbs lives in his own dark, sad world, and he isn’t sure what it would take to turn him into someone who could fit with the rest of society. An amazing guitarist, he’s nevertheless cursed with stage fright that keeps him from truly using his gift. After a run of bad luck that is literally fiery, someone finally lends him a hand.

Musician and music producer Gino Favori hires Kent to play in his band. In a relatively short amount of time, Kent makes friends for life and even falls for the band’s sultry lead singer, Erin. Although his demons continue to haunt him, he is determined not to squander this opportunity and what may be his last chance at success.

When the band goes on tour and finds the situation overwhelming, Kent becomes the one to pull them together. He dismisses his own issues and puts his bandmates on his shoulders, carrying them so they can see over the clouds. But Kent’s luck is never that good for long. Once he finds himself over the hell he created for most of his life, it looks like the band, his love life, his sanity and the world may crumble in spite of him.

“This book is like getting to know the guy that everyone guesses about. We’ve all been wounded before. We’ve all felt different at times. What readers will get from this book is a natural respect for a ‘loser.’”
