“If you hung on any longer, you’d have wound up fat, fringed and strung out in Vegas doing two shows a night.” Elvis’ eyes twinkled with mischief. “Besides, my records sell better than ever now. Who knew dying could be a great career move?”

Mr Mojo Risin by Scott Tatum

Mr Mojo Risin is a hilarious satire about the outrageously bizarre behavior we too often shrug off as politics as usual. Twenty-five years after being ghosted by the CIA, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, and Jimi Hendrix are back from the dead, entangled in a government plot to invade Jamaica.

About Mr. Mojo Risin

“One of the craziest, most intriguing stories I’ve seen in awhile. Bringing back the three greatest dead rock icons? Don’t we all want to imagine that? Mr. Mojo Risin’ is an off-beat, mile-a-minute romp, set mostly in Vegas, ripping open how our government really operates through the crazy adventures and misadventures of Jim, Elvis, Jimi, and Co. While laughing and thinking, ‘this author’s really got something,’ I saw the relevance of this book to what’s going on in our world today.”

Scott Tatum

The son of a career military officer and a public school teacher, Scott grew up on bases in California, Hawaii, and throughout the South, including stops in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

In high school and college, he fronted garage bands, performing small venues with playlists that included original songs and covers of Elvis, Hendrix and, whenever the group included a keyboard player, The Doors.

He graduated from the University of California with a double major in Philosophy and Political Science and has regularly contributed art and music reviews to local magazines. He’s a foodie, an accomplished home chef, and has written dozens of short stories including “Dream’s Door” and “Napoleon Wong and the Dog Police,” a musical based on the life and legend of Jesse James, and several reams of songs and poetry.

He lives in the San Diego area with his wife, three rowdy dogs, and the two youngest of his five children. His wife has a concerning affinity for true crime TV and is planning the perfect murder. He’s tried telling her they’re not do-it-yourself shows, but does she listen?

Mr Mojo Risin is his first novel.
