Guest Blog & Giveaway: Haven by Celia Breslin

UFI welcomes Celia Breslin Author of Havin. Thanks for Joining us!!


Haven’s Soundtrack

No doubt about it, music feeds my Muse.

For Haven, she required daily doses of industrial rock, techno (big beat and minimal), electro, breakbeat, and house. Sounds loud, right? Well, Haven IS a dance club. *grins* And my Muse likes to shake it on the virtual dance floor.

Muse required techno and house music to paint club scenes, hard-driving big beat techno and breakbeat for action sequences, and a little industrial rock for the scenes in between. Of course, she also demanded silence from time to time, to listen to the winds snap around my house, swirling fog over my roof and the nearby hills... And poignant moments required a softer, gentler type of tune...

Haven’s Playlist:

* Industrial rock - Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - The Fragile, With Teeth
* Big beat techno - The Prodigy - Music for the Jilted Generation, The Fat of the Land, Invaders Must Die
* Minimal techno - Justin Maxwell, John Tejada
* Electro - Bass Kittens - Inside the Electron
* Electro - Volsoc - Compuphonic
* Breakbeat - Bass Kittens - Four Things I Hate About You
* Breakbeat - Meat Beat Manifesto - Actual Sounds and Voices, Satyricon
* House - DJs Stacy Burket and Steve Lawler
* Kate Bush - The Sensual World

Song Sampler:
I’ve made a HAVEN playlist on Spotify -

Enjoy!

Haven
Tranquilli Bloodline #1
San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli works hard, plays hard, and never allows the death of her parents and her twelve-year memory gap to get her down. But her life takes a left turn when a witch attacks her on her twenty-fifth birthday.

Three hauntingly familiar vampires emerge to reveal she possesses a latent power. To protect her from their enemies, they admit to wiping her memories clean and abandoning her as a child, but now they need her help. As she struggles to evade her new protectors and even newer enemies, she meets Alexander, an enigmatic, undead musician. Insta-lust flares, leaving her wanting more.

With evil’s minions hounding her every move, and everything she thought she knew turned on its head, Carina must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life...without getting killed in the process.
