Love, Lost & Music

With a twist of fate and a bit of kismet, nineteen-year-old Addison Stone stumbles upon solace when he discovers his extraordinary singing voice that brings him unexpected international fame and fortune that he is ill-prepared for. As he climbs the ladder to musical acclaim, his heart remains tethered to a past he can never escape having been raised by a mentally unstable mother that left him emotionally scarred. From mother to son, the legacy of Addison’s turbulent childhood persists.


But amidst the blinding lights and thunderous applause, Addison falls in love with a young woman named Hanna and she with him. But soon there is a deafening silence as Addison loses Hanna’s love to his addiction to his new-found fame and fortune. He sets out to win her back.


Journey through the intricate roots of Addison’s life as “MEGASTAR” takes you on a captivating odyssey.



"...Megastar! transcends mere entertainment, delving into explorations of the human condition. Eastwood deftly navigates themes of legacy, vulnerability, and the contrast between public persona and private struggles. Through his masterful storytelling and nuanced character development, Eastwood invites readers to not only witness but also reflect upon the intricacies of human experience.


Megastar! stands as a testament to R.J. Eastwood's storytelling prowess, offering readers a poignant and emotionally resonant literary experience that lingers long after the final page is turned." 5 Stars - April Pulliam, Assistant Editor Literary Titan

"In Megastar, readers receive a powerful tale of teen Addison Stone, who reaches the pinnacle of international singing success but also creates distance from the woman he loves, lost to stardom and addiction. The author blends realistic dialogue and character insights into the story of how pasts are either set aside or influence future decision-making. Libraries and readers seeking novels steeped in reflective accounts of changing love and ambition will find Megastar thought-provoking and worthy of book club debate and discussion as its hero attempts to move from tragedy to uplifting new possibilities in both life and love."  5 Stars – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Novels that feature celebrities are of enormous interest to the reading public. Megastar features teen Addison Stone reaching the heights of fame without the usual pitfalls that so often overshadow the rich and famous. The story concentrates on Addison’s feelings, portraying how money and fame cannot replace the loss of the woman he loves love. I kept expecting the story to take a different path, but time after time, I was surprised and simply had to keep reading to the explosive ending. I highly recommend this book. A well-deserved 5 stars!"  Lucinda E Clarke, Readers’ Favorite

“Mr. Eastwood has written a great story of a young man thrust too soon into the spotlight without knowing the many pitfalls awaiting him. Filled with rich, vibrant characters, you will be drawn into their struggles and emotions in a deeply personal way. It is a story of love and nativity mixed with an abundance of hopes, dreams, and tragedies. Megastar is as fast-paced as the main character’s rise from obscurity to stardom. It will keep you engrossed, and you will find it impossible to put down until you finish the very last page.” 5 Stars – Award-Winning Author Gene Stiles


“I read Eastwood’s two previous novels, a suspense thriller and the other science fiction. Both were great reads by an imaginative author who can tell a story well and carefully crafts interesting characters. This time, Eastwood tells the story of a young Addison Stone, who almost becomes an international singing star overnight. The love story between Addison and the woman he loves and loses had me in tears. Once I began reading, I couldn’t put the book down and finished it in four days. Pick up a copy of Megastar; you won’t be disappointed. I wasn’t.” 5-Stars. P. LaMont


Megastar is a complex and tragic yet uplifting love story.  It explores the love that two people can have for each other and the love and admiration fans can have for a cherished and admired performer.  In this engaging story, Addison Jordan Stone reluctantly goes from being a shy singer in the church choir in the small Alabama town for which he is named to one of the most prominent and most recognized and beloved performers on the planet.  That’s the fascinating journey that R.J. Eastwood chronicles in this inspiring yet tragic novel. 5 Stars – Pearl G.

“Megastar is a complex and tragic yet uplifting love story.  It explores the love that two people can have for each other and the love and admiration fans can have for a cherished and admired performer. Young Addison Stone’s rise to worldwide superstardom is an intensely exciting, engaging, uplifting journey, exploring the rewards and pitfalls that often seem to accompany great fame and fortune. The love story is inspirational in so many ways. The story is exceptionally well told by an author who knows how to put the reader into that ‘can’t put it down’ mode.  Happily, that’s precisely where I found myself. You will, too.’” 5-Stars – C. Bregg


Author Eastwood delivers a gift to readers with his new novel, MEGASTAR. From international singing fame, money, women, love, and love lost, this is truly a unique story. Eastwood writes dialogue like people speak, making MEGASTAR an easy read. He creates in-depth personalities for each character, no matter how small. I liked that he kept the story moving quickly, avoiding long stretches of unnecessary exposition and relying on his characters to tell the story during their conversations. As for the touching love story, I admit to choking up several times. Bravo! Highly recommended. 5 stars – JoAnn D. L.
