After making an unexpected connection with God via a mysterious self-help book and a 1-800 number, one man embarks on an unlikely spiritual quest in this “remarkably creative” (Kirkus Reviews) novel from Grammy Award–winning musician and New York Times bestselling author Rick Springfield.

Why are we here? What is love? Is there a Loch Ness Monster? Does God send text messages? These are the kinds of questions Horatio Cotton, aka Bobby, asks in Magnificent Vibration.

After stealing a mysterious self-help book called Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purpose from a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scribbled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God. This launches Bobby on an unlikely quest, serendipitously accompanied by Alice, his breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp travel companion. Together the pair sets out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation—and possibly save the planet.

By turns hilarious, poignant, over-the-top, and deeply meaningful, Magnificent Vibration is a highly original tale about the biggest questions one man—or mankind—has ever asked. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Rick Springfield’s fiction debut, Magnificent Vibration, is a rollicking romp of a book. His view of divine intervention may not be mine, but his storytelling shines in this clever, entertaining—and sometimes surprisingly enlightening—first novel.”

    Mitch Albom, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The First Phone Call from Heaven

  • “This is not the prose of a rock star who decided to try his hand at novel writing, but of a novelist who just happens to be a rockstar.”


  • Magnificent Vibration is an ambitious, cinematic, darkly humorous first work.”

    Hollywood Reporter

  • “Musician Springfield, no stranger to the literary world after penning his highly-touted memoir, Late, Late at Night, branches into fiction with this novel…Springfield’s highly original work is the rare antidote to the celebrity ghostwritten books often found on today’s bestseller lists. Captivating, poignant, and hilarious, Magnificent Vibration proves that some of the most interesting stories can come from pretty unlikely places.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Springfield does an excellent job…He provides rich singular voices for his main characters and a great narrative voice that keeps listeners engaged throughout this comedic tale.”

    Publishers Weekly, audio review

  • “Remarkably creative…Springfield delivers a buckle-your-seat-belts ride…A readable comic meditation on human frailty.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Forget all the Old and New Testament tales. The Bible’s latest installment, Magnificent Vibration, is a thought-provoking and clever take on how the Almighty actually runs the universe, or universes. God’s cell phone number, personified sexual organs, and a conclusion that is surprising and dire—and somehow hilarious—are just some of the madness that make Rick Springfield’s debut novel a romp.”

    Jon Methven, author of This Is Your Captain Speaking

  • “A surprising odyssey through the no man’s land between religion and pop culture, Magnificent Vibration is by turns racy, sacrilegious, sweet, and sincere. If you’ve been searching for a novel about God, sex, and the Loch Ness Monster, Rick Springfield’s irreverent debut is for you.”

    Peter Manseau, author of Songs for the Butcher’s Daughter

  • A New York Times bestseller
  • Barnes & Noble's Biggest Books, May 2014
