So, for kicks, and also in preparation for my upcoming new release I came across a photo of someone who caught my eye. Well hell, they all catch my eye but this one did for another reason.
In Feral Craving, formally known as Coming Home, I introduce Tyler to the group. Tyler, from what many of you remember is pretty much sex on legs. His voice has the capability to stop anyone, man or woman (*hint, hint*) in their tracks and his eyes, depending on his mood, speak of things to come.
Tyler can see all, and when I say that, I mean Tyler knows not only what’s going on inside of a body but also the biggest wants for the soul.
Okay, in case many of you have missed it, Feral Craving involves a team of Special Forces who are actually a form of demon (good at that) known Justice Demons. In Feral Craving, we hear of Bari’s story and how he’s introduced to this new, dark world.
That being said, when I got to thinking about this week’s post, I knew the man I wanted to feature, but I also wanted to touch on a bit of what drove me to write his story.
I’ve had many people ask me what drives me to write, how I get my motivation. A little known fact behind the scenes is that all my writing is done while listening to music. Some get their drive from pictures, other from movies, and many others from utter silence. With me music drives the scene and depending on what I’m listening to will drive what the scene is about.
Bari’s book was written pretty much to songs by Kanye West. I’ve donned his theme song as Stronger by Mr. West and if you listen to the lyrics and read the book, then you’d understand completely why. Some other songs that drove me in this piece, and mind you it’s a very dark time for Bari, are Dark Fantasy, No Church in the Wild, Otis, Runaway, and most especially Made in America. In case you want some good pieces to listen to, I’ve created the basic list of which songs primarily drove me to finish this manuscript here.
