So, I was thinking of a fun way to promote my vampire books for October. Interviews never work. Teasers are always being done. A standard promo post didn’t really appeal to me since it doesn’t even get much when the book debuts. So, I’m just going to have fun myself and hope people give the series a try. For the next couple of Mondays, I’m posting music videos that I feel connect to each of the books. Maybe in topic, but mostly in tone and atmosphere.
First up, War of Nytefall: Loyalty
This song really does appeal to the defiant nature of Clyde even though part of the character is that he doesn’t stand alone. Whenever I hear this song, I think of a powerful and deadly monster too. Thank ‘Prince of Persia: Warrior Within’ for that because this song is what played every time the Dhaka showed up. You couldn’t kill this thing and it would take you out in one shot, so all you could do is run and go through the obstacle course until you escaped. Very stressful, so I twitch whenever I hear this song.
Solely for the title and maybe because I love the song. With this series being where the Dawn Fangs debut, it is also the one where Clyde decides on his dream. He wants his people to live among mortals and that requires acting like them. So, Dawn Fangs are learning how to be ‘human’ starting now.
Wait. Am I using a slow, romantic song for a vampire series? In fact, people who see what I usually post are probably surprised that I went anywhere near anything that isn’t loud song. Well, this is a good one for Clyde and Mab. The two tend to stand by each other all the time. It isn’t shown more than how she spent 50 years believing he was still alive beneath the ground and that he would return. Works perfectly.
