Wasteland Music. . .

SKILLET!

Anyone who’s been following me on Twitter and Facebook for a while has seen me rave about this band. I’d heard them before, but about a month or so ago, I heard Awake and Alive and FELL IN LOVE.

Even though I didn’t write Wasteland while listening to this song, when I heard it, I decided it represented the book pretty well!

There are a couple verses that really stick out:

When my faith is getting weak
And I feel like giving in
You breathe into me again

The girl signing that part ROCKS.  On the official video, she’s pounding the drums like a maniac while belting out this verse like no other! Amazing.

Another verse I love:

I’m at war with the world cause I
Ain’t never gonna sell my soul

If you followed the blog last week, you learned a bit more about David while he hosted for a few days. His demon half works to overcome his human half, but David refuses to give in. Understandably, he gets tired.

And a little testy…..Like here, in this interview with Kendall Gray’s character, Gavin.

David’s giving the whole interview-thing another shot, though. He’s getting interviewed on Ciara Knight’s blog today. Her character, Alexander, is asking a few pointed questions….Come check it out (click here.)

Happy Tuesday, everyone. Thanks for sharing my journey to publication with me.

Musical Monday

On Saturday, one of our music guys at my church, Danny Larsh, sang a song called, Count Me In.  Oh my word…Danny sang it so well I had to find out who was the artist.

Leeland.

I have several of their songs already, even seen them in concert before…but I didn’t know of this song.

So, as you can guess, I went right to iTunes and got it.

Hope you like it as well:

Musical Monday

I was introduced to this group on KM  Wilsher’s blog. She’s got rockin’ taste in music. A little bit on the hard rock side for me, but this group, she’s got me hooked!

She played Crow and Butterfly on her blog last week. I’m so glad she did. I went out and downloaded four of their songs. This one, I Dare You, has got me (along with Crow and Butterfly)

They have such a great sound. I had them playing when I did a thirty mile bike ride the other day, and it powered me up a hill!

Thanks, KM! Hope you all enjoy the song!

Do you guys have any songs to suggest for me? My playlists are getting boring!
