24 weeks straight. I feel freakin' awesome. As much as I love sharing the music that inspires me with you guys, I also kinda love that number growing week by week. Each one is an installment closer to the release of The Paladin and a sign that I'm really trying. So, with that out of the way, let's look at today's Paladin Playlist, Queen's Don't Stop Me Now.
I don't usually have a specific scene in mind when I put up these playlists. This time, I most certainly do. I'm torn about sharing this, but I think there will be a long enough gap between this blog and the release of the story in question that I'll share this. This song belongs to the one and only Simon Trevor. Specifically, I have a scene in mind where he's been contracted to eliminate a horde of zombies. While agents surround the perimeter, armed with automatic weapons and shielded by body armor. Enter Simon Trevor. He steps out of a truck, wearing just his standard gear. He slides two ear buds in. As he unsheathes his blades, Freddie Mercury's voice rings out. "Tonight, I'm gonna have myself a real good time. I feel ali-i-ive.... and the world... turning inside out, yeah. Floating around in ecstasy. so... Don't. Stop. Me. Now."
And there he goes. Dancing through hordes of the undead, disregarding safety protocols, chopping down foe after foe, head bobbing and hips swaying as he goes. It's crystal clear in my mind. God, I hope you guys to get to read it, cause I want to make sure this is shared.
In the mean time, please enjoy Don't Stop Me Now by Queen. Sing it, Freddy!
Be Excellent to Each Other.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
