Sex, Wolves & Rock 'n Roll

by Mina Carter

I’m fortunate enough to work from home. Peace and quiet, coffee on tap and’s quite a cushy number really. As I go about my daily writing, very often I like to play music, and each story gets its own playlist. Sex, Wolves and Rock n Roll was no exception. So here it is...

Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good - Nickelback
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Without You - Three Days Grace
Someone That You’re With - Nickelback
Closer - Nine Inch Nails
Bad Girlfriend - Theory of a Deadman
Animal I have Become - Three Days Grace
See You at the Show - Nickelback

As you can see, there’s a lot of similiar sounds in there, but they all fit (for me) with the story. Have a listen, see what you think...are they the soundtrack to K and Sav’s story?

He'd loved Karlan forever. Now he must face forever without him...
Karlan Rixx is the epitome of the playboy rocker. Sexy and gorgeous, with that feral edge that marked a werewolf, Sav's been in love with him for years. The trouble is, Karlan's Mr. New girl every night, as straight as they come, and Sav doesn't stand a chance. Unable to bear it anymore, he makes plans to leave the band, even though it will break his heart in the process. But anything's better than seeing the man he loves and not being able to touch. Ever.
K loves being a Lyric Hound. The only time he truly feels alive is on stage, a guitar in his hand and the beat of Sav's drums flowing through his veins. Despite his image as a womaniser, it's the other wolf who makes his heart pound and his body ache. Before K can admit his feelings though, Sav leaves and rips his world apart.
Enter Madam Eve and a very special 1NS date. Can she succeed where so many investigators have failed and find K's lost wolf?

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.
   So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all...(but she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)
   The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

  1. When I need to turn to musical inspiration I listen to Voodoo by Godsmack and Perfect Drug by NIN. Sully Erna and Trent Reznor always do it for me. ;) Though I prefer Trent in his pre-Henry Rollins look days.

    Thanks for the share!
