Fantasy Man Friday

Has it already been a week since Primal Song came out? So much has happened since then, it’s hard to wrap my mind around it. Not that I’m complaining because it’s Friday. I’m thrilled to get to the weekend because the out-patient surgery I had is still kicking my ass.

But rather than bore you with my aches and pains, I’ll move to the most important part of Fridays here on Unearthly Musings. The sexy men.

That’s right. Just because I’d prefer to stay home in my pjs and sleep or read doesn’t mean I can’t admire a sexy man. In fact, a sexy, half-naked man sometimes makes my aches and pains go away. That’s why I’ve spent so much time watching the Olympics. Heh. No, that isn’t a hint about today’s man.

But I’m almost positive he’d win gold in his event, don’t you?

If the event is Standing Around Naked and Looking Sexy, he’d win hands down. What are y’all thinking? 9? 9.5? We could tell if he were turned toward the camera, but this sexy beast is playing hard to get. And I’ll let you draw your own conclusions as to what the numbers are for. Heh.

Happy Friday.

Saber Inspiration #2

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. I’m coming off of a minor surgery and not up to sitting in front of a computer for very long.

Saber is a hard rock band. They’ve done and seen things we can only imagine. So to honor that, I had to pull up this awesome AC/DC song. I love their music back when they had Bon Scott and it doesn’t hurt that the song has bagpipes. Bagpipes in a rock song. Hello, Awesome!

So enjoy “It’s A Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)” and imagine it’s the theme song for five cat shifter rock stars as they roll into a small, south Louisiana town. They might have done a lot but nothing could prepare them for a little Cajun hospitality.

Release Day Fantasy Man

Today isn’t our average Friday. Oh no, it’s Release Day for Primal Song! Wooooooooo! Can you hear me screaming from there? Seriously, y’all, I am hyped up, ready to get this show on the road.

Why do I suddenly have the urge to say, “We love you Detroit! Goodnight!” Heh. I guess the guys from Saber (my fictional band) have influenced me more than I realized.

*calms down* Okay, that isn’t working. I’m giddy. I love release days. It’s one of the best highs of being a writer. You work for months on a story, polish it until it shines and let it go. Fly, be free, little book! And you pray it doesn’t take a nosedive. But even that fear adds its own weird rush to the joy of having a new book out.

When I got the release date, I looked at the calendar and thought, “How cool is that? It’s coming out on a Friday!” And we all know what Fridays are about here on Unearthly Musings. The menz. Fridays are about sexy menz and their sexy bodies and their ripped abs and bulging um, everything heh.

So I found a man who closely resembles what I imagine Ram to look like. You probably think he’s all golden blond hair and all, but he isn’t. This is what I picture him like when he’s trying to seduce Daisy:

Oh yeah…nom, nom, nom, gimme some! Daisy is a lucky witch to have this hunk of gorgeous to come home to. Well, once they work out their problems, but wouldn’t you give things a shot if you had this man waiting for you, all sexy rock star and testosterone? Hell, I’m not sure I’d ever leave him alone. I’d be all grabby hands and drool. Okay, maybe not the drool…unless he was doing a Magic Mike dance for me. Then it’s on!

Happy Friday y’all. If you get the chance, check out my release day party over at Close Encounters with the Night Kind and enter to win prizes! Unfortunately, this guy is not part of the giveaway. Even if I did have him to give away, I certainly wouldn’t. Heh.

Saber Inspiration Song #1

So as most of y’all know, the first book in my Cajun Heat series, Primal Song comes out on Friday. I’ve been giddy for at least two weeks. It doesn’t seem real that this book found a home at such an amazing publishing house, but it has and I couldn’t be happier.

Even better, I was able to tell a story about two characters who at turns frustrated me and amused me. Daisy and Ram shouldn’t be together and if it hadn’t been for a little help from Jillian Chantal, they probably wouldn’t have hooked up. Thanks, Jillian!

You see, Ramsey “Ram” Reinhardt is a rock star. Not just any rock star, but a lion shifting rock star. He’s seen, and done, it all. Women flock to him and the other members of Saber, his band. All except for Daisy who’s had her heart broken by a lion shifter in the past. This bear shifter isn’t about to let it happen all over again, but Ram hasn’t become the lead singer of one of the most popular hard rock bands by giving up.

It was so much fun to write about Ram’s band as well as the concert where Daisy first sees him in person. As most of you who follow this blog know, I’m a huge music fanatic. I’m partial to heavy metal and hard rock, but I have pretty eclectic tastes. If you want an idea of what I listen to, flip through some of the old What’s Playing Wednesday posts. Every month I pick a different theme and August is no different.

I couldn’t exactly have a hard rock band without having inspiration, so I’ve decided to dedicate this month to songs that inspired me to come up with the band, Saber. (They’re all cat shifters and the band name is a nod to their mutual ancestor the saber tooth tiger.) Ram has a gruff, gravelly voice, so this first song is to showcase his vocals. If I had to pick any singer Ram sounds like, it would be Philip Labonte of All That Remains. But I couldn’t leave Daisy out of it, this song definitely gives us her mindset when she meets Ram.

Besides, I adore this song. It played a lot when I was writing Primal Song and every time I hear it, I picture Ram and Daisy’s unconventional love affair. I hope you enjoy this first installation in my month of Saber Inspiration. Here is The Waiting One.
