One hell of a shot

A quick update and a few bits of inspiring music to leave behind. Our group is still moving closer to their enemy, though they’ve already had to deal with more craziness than they expected to find on this trip. Most of it came from their own issues.

Here are a few videos I wanted to leave in place of my normal wordiness. This song came up on my iPod again on my drive in to work, and it always makes me want to write werewolf fiction again. Especially Suzie’s series. E Nomine is a German band with German & Latin lyrics. This song is always great even if it is a bit older.

This song I discovered on the drive home. Trent Reznor has been putting a bunch of his music up for free online lately, and I believe this was one of his free albums. This song, “Head Down” is from his album The Slip, which is a free download. He has a whole Ghosts compilation that is all instrumental and quite inspiring for horror writing as well. I love how Trent’s been giving away so much free music lately for his fans. 🙂

Anyway, on to today’s word count!

Project: Ghosts of Pikes Peak

Summary: The old, abandoned Davis Farm just outside the bustling city of Pikes Peak is riddled with malicious spirits. Werewolf detective Colton Fen has been assigned to a half-vampire partner, Rennick Dalton, to handle the troublesome ghosts, but even their combined strength may not be enough to dissuade the poltergeists from plucking victims from the outskirts of town. Is this a simple case of ghost infestation or is there something far more malicious going on beneath the farmhouse?

Snippet:

“Mary is fortunately a much better shot than you are.”

Colton frowned. She was smiling at him, that cocky, annoying smile she wore like a badge lately. “Sorry about that,” he muttered as he adjusted his hat. “Even I have to admit that was one hell of a shot.”

“I know,” she cocked her head at him. “I’m just glad you finally admitted it.”
