Just as a note, I'm headed out of town for a wedding, so for the next few days my blog posts are going to be a bit shorter. Should be back to snuff by Monday though. On with the post...
Stay with me on this one guys. I realize that I'm writing Urban Fantasy. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, demons, witches... all that jazz. I realize that there's a lot of occult references, religious iconography, spells, possessions, blood... just a lot of dark and mystical stuff. So I really need you to stay with me when I tell you that this week, I'm sharing the theme song of WWE Superstar Zack Ryder, Radio.
Now, if you're not one of my beta readers, you may question how the hell this song can inspire me to write about anything having to do with The Paladin. Well, I could use this as a chance to remind everyone that I AM indeed looking for more beta readers and if you become one, this song will make a lot more sense.... but I don't think that's going to do here. Okay... I have a character. He's a hunter. And... well... without giving too much away, let's just say this song totally hypes me for him.
I do have to specify here, though. I couldn't find an official version of the song that I like. WWE's official music chanel only has Zack Ryder's latest theme, which, while the words are the same, the entire feel is different. No, it has to be this older version of Radio to get the proper feel for writing my character. It's laid back... it's arrogant... it's a little dude-bro... okay a LOT dude-bro, but still. That's what I need to get this character going. And maybe this song isn't going to get you going, but be honest: you're curious about my character now, aren't you?
Don't Forget to be Awesome.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
