To celebrate the launch of my latest book, MACK, here’s some of the music I obsessed over while writing it…
Kung Fu Fighting
This song is featured in one of Mack’s dreams early in the book. Honestly, I don’t know how I pulled this one out of my butt. I swear, I haven’t thought of it in years. In terms of the story, I think this tune helps to set a light and funny tone. You can’t take yourself too seriously as a writer while listening to Kung Fu Fighting.
Burning Down the House
This is a remake with Tom Jones and the Cardigans. MACK includes multiples scenes with fire-breathing dragons, so this is what I listened to while writing those battles.
That’s Not My Name
The character of Kaps is misunderstood my many folks in this book… except for Mack. For me, this tune by the Ting Tings really captures Kaps attitude toward it all.
Total Eclipse Of The Heart, Dance Remix
This over-the-top emo song inspired me while writing the parts where Mack and Kaps weren’t sure if they’d stay together. Plus, it always makes me smile.
Right Back Where Started From
This is what I’d play while crafting the HEA!
I’m Mack, a regular human who happens to run a secret league of vampire hunters. For most of my nineteen years, my daily routine has been to kill bloodsuckers, rinse and repeat.
But if I thought the vampires were trouble before, now stuff is about to get downright apocalyptic.
Why? The clock is ticking. The magical city of El Dorado will reopen soon. And once that happens, the vampire leader, Roman, will enter and create an army of bloodsuckers who do more than just kill humans—these vamps also take the shape of the last person they murdered. With thousands of supernatural warriors behind him, Roman will wipe out humankind and repopulate the world with vampires.
Not on my watch.
Trouble is, Roman knows I’m coming for him, so he’s targeting the woman I love, Kaps. There’s no way I’m putting her in danger, so I tell Kaps we’re through and go after Roman on my own.
But my woman is a badass dragon shifter who wants to end Roman as much as I do. When it comes to saving humanity, Kaps won’t let anyone stop her.
