Who ever said being an Indie Author was easy? Luckily I like a challenge! The last three months of my life have been one heck of a roller-coaster. I thought (and who could blame me) that being an author meant writing... lots... and it does, but what I didn't expect was to have to call on every other skill I have in order to set up my little empire.
Graphic design, web-editing skills, spreadsheets (for organisational purposes). It hasn't been the easiest three months, but now that I'm fully operational I think I'm ready to settle down and devote myself to getting in touch with all of you lovely folks and, more importantly, go back to writing lots.
And that's exactly what I'm doing!
You'll be happy to know that Midnight Magick #2 is very much under way, and running alongside this sexy suspenseful sequel is book #1 in my second series... an as of yet untitled paranormal thriller! I really don't want to tip my hand yet, but it's a lot more fast-paced than Midnight Magick and a story I've wanted to write for a very long time! I'm very excited to get this out to you.
Anyway, I thought I'd start a little "blog song" tradition. Music is my thing. In another life I swear I was a musician! And since music is the vehicle that transports me into the worlds I'm writing, I thought I'd share some of the music I'm listening to while I write the stories you guys will (hopefully) one day be reading!
I warn you. I have an eclectic taste, but my passion is for drums, guitars and vocals so there will be plenty of rock music featured here; but I'll try to cater to everyone!
I listen to this song when I need a pick-me-up or a burst of inspiration. It gets me on the right track and reminds me why I'm doing this (writing).
So I hope you enjoyed that (long) music video. It's like a little movie, isn't it? And yes, the extremely sexy Jared Leto directed it. If you'll excuse me, I'll just go swoon now...
Do you guys have any favourite songs? Bands? Genres? Is there a particular song or band you think I should listen to when writing (or just whenever)? Let me know in the comments below!
