I would like to welcome Sean Hayden to my blog today. He’s touring for his new book (which I’ve read, and it rocks) and there’s a contest so stick around to the end for details.
GREETINGS AND SALUMATATIONS DENIZENS OF EARTH!
Just wanted to take a moment to thank the lovely Miss Campbell for the opportunity to overthrow the current government of her blog and use it to fulfill my ambitions of spreading the good word about my new book, My Soul to Keep. This is the third stop on the blog tour. I hope most of you have been following it faithfully and drooling on your cardigans, waiting for my next revelation. Well, I shan’t keep you in suspense any longer. You’re getting my boots wet.
So, for today’s stop, I thought I would talk a little bit about INSPIRATION. For those of you few select mortals who have read My Soul to Keep (Don’t worry, I’m keeping track. Those that have shall earn a special place in the new world order once I conquer the entire planet) are probably wondering where the heck I get my crazy story ideas. Well, I’ll tell you. I’m a little sick in the head.
If you’ve read the story, you know how it starts. If you haven’t, I’ll…um…tell you I guess. The story starts off with your average boy doing average things. Needless to say, he sustains an injury doing his algebra homework (Don’t laugh, it’s happened to me). A little blood on the desk, a #2 pencil, and a crazy idea that pops into his head, and boom…his life will NEVER be the same. He gets a crazy notion to scrawl a note in his own blood promising his soul in exchange for his fondest wish. He craps kittens when a Fallen (yes, fallen angel) comes do grant it. He wishes for the one thing they never expected anyone to ever wish for. He wishes to be one of the Fallen.
So where did I get the idea for this story? Television perhaps? HECK no. You see, the story for this one came from a nice big juicy cut on my arm. In my desperation to become a NYT BESTSELLING AUTHOR, I actually considered scrawling a note in my blood promising my soul to make it happen (it didn’t work darn it. Just kidding. I didn’t really do it. Or did I? HAHAHAHA)
The one good thing that did come from the idea was this story. I hoe you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it!
Now we get to the fun part of the blog tour! Your chance to wind some awesome Sean Hayden Swag (SHWAG). All of it features…YOU GUESSED IT! The cover of MY SOUL TO KEEP! There’s a WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF FOR ONE LUCKY WINNER AND COPIES OF MSTK FOR SOME OF THE LOSERS! Here’s the DEETS!
