Five #Musical breakdowns I LOVE #writing to!

When I talk of writing to music, it’s not just the lyrics that move me but the actual music itself.  Listening to heavy metal for the last twenty years, I’ve heard the imagesgenre evolve.  My tastes have evolved, having gone from speed and thrash metal to Djent and Progressive death metal, more for the feel of the music.  It makes me feel the scene harder, makes me write deeper, makes me feel like I’m accomplishing something in the world of words I’m creating. This will probably be an odd list for most of you because my tastes aren’t typical.  Those of you who have followed my career already know and understand this.  Honestly I won’t lie, I’m not sure “breakdown” is always the proper term, since I know two of these tracks don’t really have a breakdown, but more a crescendo of sound, to my ears anyway.

1. Immerse by Fellsilent.  Around 1:55 the breakdown begins and we have harmony from a normally screaming band, then at 2:28 the screaming comes back in mixed with the clean vocals, while that simple high hat keeps the time.

2. Messenger, by Textures.  The song is pretty sedate in general, clean vocals, a good groove but what I’d consider the breakdown here, makes for good lyrics in romance, creating angst.  “I’m a messenger, I’m not supposed to be here.”

3. Dagger, by Vildhjarta.  How can this NOT be on this list?  It’s in a few of the top Djent breakdowns for being sick as hell, but it’s also lyrically something I identify with as a writer.  “Not that it would matter more but this must be made clear.  This is not a confession, this is more like a betrayal.”

Devildriver_wallpaper_Flames4. Fate Stepped In by Devildriver.  Yeah, it’s all a fray when Dez kicks in and starts singing, the drums, the guitar work, the image from the video  of them doing this live with the lightening in the background, awesome.  But then, melody, silent melody until the vocals kick in and we’re all wondering what the fuck’s up with vultures.  Great for imagery by the way because my iTunes used to have the tracks from this album out of order so Forgiveness Is a Sixgun is the next track and inspires western/confrontational themes.

5. Born In Winter by Gojira.  Yeah, that’s why the French flag was on a recent blog post LOL!  This song is mostly calm and tranquil words with dark chords and powerful lyrics, but once the power chords start, the song kicks into overdrive.  Slowly though, and I suppose it isn’t really a breakdown, but a point in the song that inspires me to keep pushing, keep writing.

There you have it.  How many of you can relate and with what songs?  Leave a comment below!

NEW COVER ART!

This actually came back to me a few weeks ago but I haven’t had time to schedule or even write a blog post for my own site LOL!  Yeah, I’m THAT busy.Endangered_final_fiona

Anyway, got the final cover proof for Endangered, my upcoming Red Sage release.

Drum roll please…

Ah screw it.  Cover’s the first thing you’ll see anyway!

Livía Ilona, vampire queen of San Francisco, and her lover Isabella, have kept The Syndicate and their drugs out of their territory until recently when a new boss stepped in and started making strict demands.  Tiring of their threats, Livía strikes a deal with The Syndicate’s leader to keep out of Nob Hill.  All she has to do is kill the one man who happens to be causing problems—Joséf Staganov.  Except he’s not just a troublemaking ex-cop, he’s the key to returning Livía’s human soul. 

Rogue cop turned vigilante, Joséf Staganov fights to keep The Syndicate and their drugs off the streets of San Francisco, using whatever means necessary.  Aware that his life is on a short leash, he trusts only himself until even that trust is betrayed by an operation gone bad.  Now hooked on the drugs he’s trying to eradicate, Joséf vows to take as much of the criminal organization down as possible before he dies.  Except during a fight, the Queen of the Night comes with her lover to his rescue and to abduct him. 

Capture quickly turns to seduction until Joséf learns the real reason for his kidnapping:  Recover Isabella’s boy.  The human in him still sees the good of his act, yet the beast Livía accidentally unleashes presents an all new threat.  Can the threesome recover Isabella’s son, topple the Syndicate and stop the threats on their lives?

Stick around for audio excerpts and more as we gear up for the release of the first book in the Nights of Lust series!

“A wonderful, erotic storyteller … turns you on and tugs your heartstrings at the same time!” –Sabrina Smith Moses.

Sascha Illyvich, the famed “Bad Boy of Romance”, is noted for his dark, paranormal erotica — and the best of it is here in this enthralling collection which includes a complete novel of vampires and eros (Dark Traders), a wonderful novelette of lycanthropy and romance (Wolf Magic), a short story about a man enslaved by a sexy female demon who is also a dominatrix (“His Demon Mistress”), plus more unforgettable novelettes and short stories.

Two short stories, two novellas.  In Aqua Dream, a beautiful woman washes up on shore and is rescued only to reveal a secret to her oh so sensual rescuer.

Dark Traders -

Miranda is the SEC’s sexiest and savviest investigator. But she meets her match when she is assigned to investigate the X Corp, a company founded and run by vampires. But before she can determine if the undead have violated fair trading rules on the NYSE, Jet Curtis, vampire – and X Corp.’s top hit man – is sent to kill her.

However, once Jet sees Miranda his thoughts turn to kissing, not killing. The two make passionate love — and then Jet turns her into a vampire like himself.

Miranda disappears. Then a year later, she returns, now one of undead, with vengeance on her mind. Can she and Jet settle their differences in order to stop X Corporation from causing chaos on the stock exchange and ruining the American economy?

Here is a premium blend of dark eroticism and vampiric carnality for those who like their vampires with just a dash of sex.

Bound to Me – A little 1,000 word vignette written for someone special, a wolf of mine.

Wolf Magic -

An enthralling contemporary fantasy, and a passionate erotic romance. Marco and Selene. Werewolf and witch. He is the sexy, rebellious young werewolf whose anger and violence are legendary. She is a sexy, mature witch into whose care the elders of his pack have given Marco. At once she realizes he is more dangerous and powerful that the other werewolves.

To Marco, she is the most desirable woman he has ever met, and he knows he will never give up until he possesses her. As she attempts to show him wisdom, he subjects her to his very considerable charms. Something has to give — and does.

As nights of torrid lovemaking alternate with nights of the full moon when he tears himself from her side, neither suspects that they are at the center of a conspiracy by the leaders of Marco’s pack, or that they may all be pawns in an ancient prophecy from the dawn of time. For the love that binds them both is bringing death nearer with every beat of their hearts. Marco is strong and Selene wise, but these are as nothing to the power of the danger that threatens them.

The Test – It’s gay.  That’s all I remember, and it was for some anthology I did, I’m pretty sure.

More fun with Bound After Midnight

1boundaftermidnight1600x2400If you haven’t picked up this awesome powerhouse anthology you’re missing out on some of the hottest kinky paranormal romance to date!   I’m taking time to talk about the book today,  from the perspective of an editor.

Honestly, when you push authors to write something that’s pretty much a guaranteed sale, what does that mean to them?  From my perspective as an author I need only a few guidelines.  Genre, flavor (m/m, m/f, etc) and word count.

The character of Solan was more like a lost soul/warrior but the archetype (remember those of you who took my classes) that really stood out in the end was his need to conquer.  Himself, his land, his situation, his destiny.  Without a clear vision, our wandering samurai (ask about that!) had no direction other than to fight until he died.

There was a part of me who realized he needed something deeper and when I figured out what that was, who his match was based on people I know, I found a heroine easily.  Katherine, vampire, lover, submissive to only the one who could own her, would be a perfect match for our wandering warrior.

In the story she does give off clues of awareness of her part in his destiny but he’s so blinded by what he can see that he misses the obvious until Katherine’s life is at stake, literally.

Yes, if you’re reading this and we went to high school together, you know EXACTLY who I based Katherine off of.

I’m rather proud of the story and happy to be sharing space next to two of my authors at Sizzler Editions.

Pick up Bound After Midnight at

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Sizzler Editions

Bound After Midnight Cover – Erotic Paranormal BDSM Romancae

1boundaftermidnight1600x2400Finally, we wait no more!  The long awaited anthology from Sizzler Editions authors Margie Church, Bonni Sansom and me, “Bound After Midnight” has a a cover AND a release date!

Three tales of paranormal romance and bondage:

In my story Finding Eternity -

In search of his destiny, Solan is wounded by his opponent and left for dead.  Rescue in the form of a sensual vampire who drags him back to her castle and heals him.  Instant sexual attraction complicates things as Solan’s destiny unfolds before his eyes and he is faced with either learning true mastery, including owning the woman he’s growing to love, or watching her die before his eyes.

Katherine’s life has been unfulfilling until she feels the pull of her life mate slipping away.  Upon rescue, she realizes what sustains her is his love, not blood.  Except his uncertainties prevent him from fulfilling the role of Master to her slave.

Will Solan realize his true destiny is with Katherine or will she die of a broken heart?

Bonni Sansom brings us Hunter’s Bounty –

Being a Vampire bounty hunter had its perks. Lana Drake knew this all too well. But meeting her new client, Devon Brody awakens a bloodlust that brought out the submissive in her.

After Devon’s sister Zara is kidnapped, Devon hires Lana Drake, vampire bounty hunter to find her, only to negotiate payment with his blood.  After the first feeding, he quickly realizes her submissive nature pairs well with his Dominant side.

What starts off as passing time in a no holds barred sexual D/s relationship quickly progresses to something Lana can’t handle, until Devon reveals his true nature when he saves her from the vampire clan that kidnapped his sister.  Can Devon and Lana resolve their feelings for each other?

Margie Church leaves us with a taste of Cream On The Crop -

After growing up in politics, Neha Thompson craves privacy. Her new farm seems the perfect place to create a new life, until peculiar events bring the sheriff to her door.

Jamaal Cooper’s feelings about black rights angered some of the locals during the 1948 Freedom Train movement. His body was found on Neha’s farm, and his murder remains unsolved. For 65 years, his restless spirit has harassed the property owners, driving them away one by one. Neha is next.

When Jamaal uncovers Neha’s most secret desires, she’s faced with a choice to submit to this ghostly Master or be driven away like the others.

Now, for the release date:  February 21st!  Look out for this awesome anthology!
