Music Monday: Say WHAT?


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Greetings me spooky little love monkeys! Did everyone have a grand time following the Divinity Blog Tour?

I know, I know, I dang near missed the Monday bus, but good lord, it’s been one of those days! Holy Toledo, I didn’t think I’d EVER get to sit down!

Well, now that the blog tour is done, I’m going to be trying to get back into my blog schedule, which means it’s Music Monday time! YAY!!

And since it’s October this month’s blog is going to be chock full of my favorite thing, HALLOWEEN!!! WOOHOO!!!

I’m going to bring you some of my favorite Halloween things, including how things are going with my Zombie March 2012 costume 🙂

So, let’s get this party started!! This song here is very new and albeit not technically Halloween-y, but it is the way I listen to it, let’s take a look at Kiss You Inside Out by Hedley

Like I said, on the surface this sounds like a very lovey dovey song and he just loves her so much right?

Yeah, well, when I here this song, a twisted little horror movie plays out in my head. I’m seeing this handsome dude that goes to bars and picks up unsuspecting girls to take back to his hotel room/apartment/house to seduce. In said seduction, he has his little ritual where he’s pampering them and making them feel all special and stuff until he goes to kiss them…

That’s when my twisted wee brain takes over and I can see him literally kissing them inside out. Hmmm, maybe this is fodder for a new demon in an upcoming book. A demon that literally kisses his victims inside out only to leave the empty husk laying around like a shirt that’s been discarded. And you have no idea how much I giggle when this song is on!

Yes, I realize how twisted this all sounds and I quite possibly need help, but really, “normal” Patty is quite boring and I only let her out when I need to be all serious and junk 😉

By the way, don’t forget that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month so get your boobies checked! As much as I loathe the beasts I lug around on my chest, I think dying would suck a whole lot more. So get your mamograms and do your boobie checks! DO IT!

Okay, I’m outtie my squishy little marshmallow peepy love monkeys! Stay tuned, for more blog fun and updates on the Zombie March 2012 costume project!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Music Monday: Demons!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my superdy duper little love monkeys!

Look at me! I didn’t forget to do the Music Monday post today!! GO ME!!

This post is a little hard for me to really do. Why you might ask? Well, you all know I like to add a little visual aid to my posts and this one was a hard to do.

Mainly because I didn’t want to scare the bejesus out of anyone with how I see the big baddies in Divinity. I’m not going to lie to you, they are some pretty gruesome individuals. So, I trolled around the web and I did find some excellent visual images of how I see the demons in this tale, however, the photos were really quite scary and I didn’t want to send anyone running and screaming from my wee little corner of the web. That being said, I did happen across an image that I thought I could share with you. Now, this isn’t an image of demons, those were all just too much, this is of another baddie in the tale, goblins. And I apologize in advance for anyone I might scare.

Heehee! Gotcha! Seriously though, this is how I envisioned the goblins but I love that they are drinking tea 🙂

Okay, I DO have some music to go with the demons in the story! This piece just oozes what the demons are all about, Sweet Dreams by Marilyn Manson.

Now, you’ll notice that this isn’t they official video because quite frankly the actual video creeps me the hell out! Actually, Marilyn Manson himself gives me the heebs but I think that’s what gives this song the right vibe for my demons. Why does this song say Divinity demon to me? Well, let’s look at the first couple of lines of the book, shall we…

~~~

Demons.

They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Lawyers, doctors, politicians, the guy on the corner, the lady ringing up your groceries, your kid’s principal, or the over-exuberant PTA mom who runs every bake sale and fundraiser at the school.

~~~

See what I mean? The words to Sweet Dreams alone speak volumes as to how I envision my demons, but add in Marilyn Manson’s creep factor and it’s a dead ringer. Heck I can practically hear it when I read that part there.

Anywhoo, that’s all I have for you today! Stay tuned for more blog fun later this week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Music Monday: Alexander!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my magical love monkeys!

Can I just say that I can’t WAIT to share the cover for Divinity with you, but alas, I must. And I have to say that this is a major exercise in my self control because I fully admit that I am horrible at keeping things like this to myself. Hell, I want nothing more than to get my van vinyl wrapped in my cover and drive all over town with a PA system telling the world (or at least all of Santa Clarita) about my book. Yeah, I’m a nerd like that.

But, I digress, the reveal will come soon and I’ll be the first to point y’all in the right direction!

Now onto our musical section of Monday! On Friday I introduced you to the bossman, Mr. Alexander Gaius, brought to you by the oh so nomtastic Jude Law…

Dadgum he wears a suit well, doesn’t he? Whew! Anywho, because of said suitage, so without further ado, I give you his musical “theme” song, Misirlou by the awesome 2Cellos…

I find this piece elegant yet there is a bad-ass edge to it and something tells me that our Mr. Alexander Gaius may have a bit of bad-ass buried under that suit somewhere.

So there ya have it! I urge you to check out more of the tunes from 2Cellos as they are a-may-zing! Have an excellent week, and stay tuned for more blog fun in the week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Music Monday: Daniel+Giveaway=AWESOMENESS!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my fabuloso little love monkeys! Guess what?

IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL WEEK!!

Can you hear my squeals of delight? Oh yeah, there’s squealing!

Seriously, I could go on and on but let’s get to why you’re really here–you want to know what kind of theme music I’ve cooked up for our hot little hero, Daniel Summers! Did you miss his intro on Friday? Fear not, you can check it out *HERE* Now, why did I pick this song? Well because simply put, it reminds me a Daniel. It has a hard edge to it and it’s a little bit dirty. Not pervy, mind you, just a little smathering of dirt, kind of like Daniel. He’s a guy, down to his core and every guy out there, no matter how nice he is, has a bit of the dirty in him.

I can dang near picture Daniel doing his thang, training with Evie or kicking some demon booty with this cranking in the back.

Okay, now let’s get to this giveaway I’ve teased you with! I’ve joined the Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop and I get to do two things that I LOVE to do, talk about hot boys AND give stuff away!! So, without further ado, who could be hotter this summer than one, Daniel SUMMERS! Hows that for convenient character naming huh?

Brought to you by the “ZOMG he’s so pretty!” Chris Evans! Okay, so what makes a hero hot for me? Yeah, it’s great to have a slammin’ body and let’s face it, his bod is frickin’ slammin! I mean, I have never wanted to lick a complete stranger as much as I want to lick this guy. But what makes a hero super hot for me is his sense of humor and smile. Kinda like this…

Doesn’t that just make you giggle like an idiot and your panties melt off?

Want to see more Hot Heroes? Check out the hop, brought to you by the lovely H.D. Thomson, Bella Media Management & Caris Roane


Thank you ladies for hosting this fabulous hop!

Music Monday: Evie!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my wondrous little love monkeys! Did you have a great weekend? Mine wasn’t too shabby, can’t complain 🙂

So, starting today I’m going to be brightening up your Mondays with some inspirational music from Divinity! What does that mean exactly? Well, it means that this is music that has either inspired a character or a part of the book, a piece of tunage that I would listen to over and over again in a continuous loop whilst writing.

This first piece is what I would listen to when I was trying to get into the head of one of my main characters, one Miss Evelyn Elizabeth Brighton, or Evie as everyone calls her. Since I introduced you to her on Friday’s blog *HERE* I thought you might want to hear what rolls through my head when I’m in her head. Now, this music might be a little on the harsher side for some people, heck it’s a little harsh for me to tell you the honest truth, but it was what I felt screamed Evie, especially when she is at her best and kicking some serious demon tail! She’s not overtly girlie and she’d just assume take a beast’s head off as say hello to it. She is 100%, demon hunting bad-ass and that is what this song says to me. Here is Pretty Handsome Awkward by The Used…

I think what I like best about this is that it grabs you by the short hairs right out of the box and doesn’t let go until the last note, kinda like Evie.

Did you like it? Does it make you want to jump into Evie’s skin and ride the ride with her? I sure hope so! Stay tuned for more blog fun and have a great Monday my darlings!

Until next time,

Patty <3
