Tunes for Vampire Sorority Sisters: Book 3

My Jill
I think most people are particular about the way they do things. I've mentioned before that I really, really need to have a clear picture of what exactly my characters look like in my head before I can start writing their story. When I first saw Melissa Debling, I KNEW she was my Annie. (Melissa, if you're reading this I know you're your own person and my casting you as one of my characters was not at all creepy. I swear)

My Tokyo/Miyoko
Once I have my characters in place, I also like to come up with music that makes me think of them and their story. I have some really depressing music in mind for VSS Book4. Sam is in a pretty dark place. I had some great R&B tunes for Benny and Cleo, though "I love You" by Lenny Williams can and should be listened to at least several times a week just to add a little bit of drama to your day.

Yesterday, while I sat prepping for another adventure in reality tv, a song came up on my pandora station that was just too perfect for my next sorority girl/vampire lady adventure.

Readers have already told me a bit about how they feel about these two. Please feel free to read the first two books in the series to get a glimpse of what they're getting at. Jill is annoying. So annoying, but I love her so much. A clingy little freshman when we meet her, who has issues with personal boundaries and a verbal bluntness that I personally love. Tokyo too is a bit of an asshole who has a habit of getting in the way. Am I bringing them together as a couple? YOU BETCHA! And I'm really excited about it. So what song is the perfect fit for them?

 Glowing by Nikki Williams

Why? You'll just have to read VSS Book 3 to find out. Oh and I should probably start writing it. :)

Hey friends! Brie over at Romance Around the Corner is hosting Herione Week, where various romancey types like myself have contributed blogs about women in romance.

My post is up today and I'm talking about women of color in romance, something I can relate to a little. I think. Please check out the posts and give Brie some props for hosting such a kick-ass event!
