Scene Song Saturday–Fierce Dawn

“X-men action meets True Blood heat!” -Ann Charles, Nearly Departed in Deadwood

One of my favorite scenes to write and get inside of in “Fierce Dawn,” is Sadie witnessing immortals sparring for the first time. Then when she gets her shot at practice. Bjork’s “Army of Me” captures the slamming beat of Sadie’s heart and the first threads of determination she holds onto as she attempts to take her human kick-boxing moves to a whole new level.

May 18th and the big Bestseller For a Day event is almost here! Score “Fierce Dawn” for 99 cents on Amazon Kindle to help drive it into the top 100!

What song screams fight scene to you?

Scene Song Saturday

I love, love, LOVE music when I write and thought it would be fun to share the songs that suck me into certain scenes.

While writing “Fierce Dawn,” Florence and the Machine’s “Cosmic Love” captures the essence of Sadie’s struggle and her fighting spirit. I get a physcial reaction to it and must see Water For Elephants thanks to the song being in the preview. (Okay, yeah. Seeing delicious Rob didn’t hurt.)

Still, it makes me think of Sadie and Elijah in flight and the heat that crackles between them.

Here’s the video:

Hot Trends and Big Winners!

The final frontier for us authors in the digital age is the ability to give readers something personal. Like a signing. Thanks to being Indie and scoring an iPad plus the brilliant Indie Book Collective having two fingers on the industry’s pulse, I can give my readers a signed ebook.

Sweet!!

It’s my new favorite thing to give away now. Today at Immortality and Beyond, a signed copy of Fierce Dawn is up for grabs. Plus anyone who helps Fierce Dawn scale the Amazon Kindle charts now through May 18th, can request one from me, too. AND I have a winner of the one I gave away in the recent Blog Tour de Force Cage Match, too!

Whew! Let’s a catch a breath.

We also have a winner of the Super Secret Spoil Me prize. The contents in it are so awesome that I can’t tell you what’s in it. If the winner wants to, hey, that’s cool. But I’m sworn to secrecy.

But first…a couple announcements.

I’ll be joining eighteen authors in the first bi-annual Arizona Dreaming reader event June 4th in Tempe, AZ. It’s a day of fun and chatting up all your favorite on-the-rise authors. I can’t wait! Limited seats available and tickets are selling fast. Get yours here.

July 30th I’ll join Rachel Thompson and Carolyn McCray to speak on two panels at the Indie Book Event in New York City!

May 18th marks Fierce Dawn‘s Bestseller For a Day and I’m starting to see that 3 times might in fact be a charm. Reviews and reactions over Fierce Dawn are phenomenal. The event itself is getting national attention. How cool that a seed of an idea, thanks to all of you, is growing so fast!

NOW, for the winners….

The Super Secret Prize goes to….Hazel O’Shea!!

The signed ebook, commenter from The Bookish Snob goes to…Toni LoTempio!!

Huge Congrats to both and thank you to all who came to play. Off to sign and send and stuff…happy Thursday all!
