Music Monday- Blood, Lust and Love

It’s that time again–Music Monday!

Here today to join us is Sheri Velarde to discuss her new release, Blood, Lust and Love!

Blood, Lust and Love Final

Blood, Lust and Love: A Collection of Vampire Shorts is all about vampires. So naturally that brought out the old school goth in me when it came to the soundtrack for these three stories.

1. Never Tear Us Apart by INXS- I used to have the hugest crush on Michael Hutchence and let’s face it, he had the sexy vampire kind of look down. This is also a perfect song for creatures that live forever and can possibly love for ever as well. Though Devil Inside and so many other songs fit the mythos of vampires as well.

2. Anything by The Cure. Anything. I cannot even tell you how much I loved this band as a teen and how when I write anything gothic or about vampire this is one of my go to listens. If I had to pick one song for vampire… maybe Fascination Street? Vampires are pretty darn fascinating!

3. Enjoy the Silence by Depeche Mode. This is another band that I could pick almost any song. “All I ever wanted, all I ever needed is here in my arms.” Pretty good vampire pick up line I would say! And true since love and food could come from the same person for them! Lol

4. Rebel Rebel by David Bowie. Okay so this isn’t goth, but aren’t vampires rebels against the world itself.

5. This next one may be because they looked like vampires? LOL I don’t know. Taking you back from some 80s glam metal now with L.A. Guns and Over the Edge. Isn’t that what being a vampire is about, living over the edge?

Lots of things are coming up. Later this month I have my short “Rumpled Sheets” in the Twisted Fables anthology on Torquere Press. I am also working on a m/m fantasy novella for them that I hope to have out in the late spring. I have a shifter re-release coming out in October on my own Stoker Publishing, with a lot more new and re-releases to follower there.  I am also working on the follow up to my fantasy novel Quest for Redemption. I suspect there will be a lot more releases before the year is out.

I am all over social media and can be found at the following links!

Lovely Authors and a Release Day Party

Help me celebrate my release day by joining me and a bunch of the most kickass authors for this Facebook party!

https://www.facebook.com/events/1003808899683864/

The lineup includes:

Sawney Hatton

Sawney Hatton is an author, editor, and screenwriter. Other incarnations of Sawney have produced corporate videos, attended Scottish Highland games, and played the banjo and sousaphone (not at the same time). He laughs at death, which has made for some very awkward funeral services.

Sheri Velarde

I am a creative type who not only writes, but also paints and makes jewelry. I am most at home when creating. In my spare time I love to listen to live music, read, and just hang out with my fiancé and our two dogs.

Jessica Cale

Jessica Cale is a historical romance author and journalist based in North Carolina. Originally from Minnesota, she lived in Wales for several years where she earned a BA in History and an MFA in Creative Writing while climbing castles and photographing mines for history magazines. She kidnapped (“married”) her very own British prince (close enough) and is enjoying her happily ever after with him in a place where no one understands his accent.

Olivia Night

Olivia Night, a fictional character herself, has always been an avid reader and writer. She found the romance genre in college and has never been able to get enough. One sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Seduction series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, runs, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

Shelli Rosewarne

Shelli Rosewarne had always had a dream in the back of her head about wanting to be a writer, from the time she was handing in ten page stories at primary school and driving her teachers crazy. However, like with so many things, life and paying the bills got in the way and she worked in various jobs from call centers to shops to offices. She eventually realized that life is too short not to try and follow your dreams, and has since had her first stand alone novella published with Breathless Press, along with several submissions in anthologies, another novel contracted for later in the year and various works in progress in the pipeline. Yup, she’s having to pinch herself as well!
She currently lives in Edinburgh with her long-suffering fiancé and slightly psycho cat. When not writing she loves reading, music and photography.

Music Monday- Lust, Sex, and Tattoos

Just another Music Monday…here with some new tunes to spice up your morning!

Today let’s welcome Sheri Velarde who’s here to discuss her book Lust, Sex, and Tattoos!

Lust 12 in cover

Lust, Sex and Tattoos is very much a rock n’roll kind of book, so it is only natural that is have a rock soundtrack. Here are my top 5 favorite songs for this book and its characters Ben and Karen!

Learn to Fly by the Foo Fighters. This song is exactly what Karen is going through. She is learning to fly so to speak and finding herself for the first time in a long time.

You’ve Got Another Thing Coming by Judas Priest. Again Karen is finding herself and her own strength and this is a classic song about not taking guff off of anybody!

They’re Coming to Take Me Away by the Butcher Babies. Karen just got out of this phase of her life, where she lost herself and almost went crazy. I have met the ladies in this band and they just kick major butt and their music means that to me, kicking butt and taking names.

The Pretender by the Foo Fighters. (They are my favorite band!) Before Ben Karen was with a pretender. A mean pretender. Nothing more to say.

Back in the Saddle Again by Aerosmith. Let’s just say this is how Karen feels after meeting Ben.

I already have a four more releases to come out over the first three months of this year. I have a short story in the “Snowed In” anthology from Torquere Press. I have a vampire story soon to be released on Three Worlds Press. I have a collection of vampire shorts coming out on Valentine’s Day and a re-release of a shifter story due out in March on Stoker Publishing. Besides those releases I am working on three novels at the moment and lots of shorts in between. I like to be busy and always have more than one project going at a time.
