5 on Friday - Set 80

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

Before we get to the music -

May I present to you my second book trailer for my work-in-progress, Saint Sanguinus:

~~~~~~Roll Credits~~~~~~~

Tanwen - Stevie Cooper

Bearer of bad news - Scott Baker

Vampire Lord - Brad Smith

Producer - Tara MacDonald

Writer/Director - Julia Phillips Smith

Director of Photography - Luke Hudgins

Production Assistant - Caroline Ruyle

Picture/Sound Editor & Special Effects - Doug Woods


For this week's 5 on Friday, let's take a journey through Tanwen's character arc. Tanwen is the woman featured in the book trailer. She's the main female character in my Dark Ages vampire story.

I put together a previous set for Tanwen - you can check it out by CLICKING HERE.

1 - Paint it Black - The Rolling Stones

She begins the story in this mind frame.

2 - The Hand That Feeds - Nine Inch Nails

She soon realizes she's clashing with just about everyone in her family and her village.

3 - What Have You Done - Within Temptation

She makes a decision which has immense repercussions.

The clips featured in this video are from one of my favorite films, Day Watch / Dnevnoy dozor. If you're into urban paranormal stories and don't mind Russian subtitles, this is the film for you.

4 - Hyper Music - Muse

These are Tanwen's feelings about an unrequited love figure.

5 - Achilles Last Stand - Led Zeppelin

This is where Tanwen finds herself by the end of the story. Update on where I'm at with my manuscript requests: About to turn over the two partials for a final read-through. Then, they're off to see the Wizard.

Love Achilles Last stand. And the book is definitely enticing.

Funny you mention off to see the Wizard. I'm in the middle of the "Wicked trilogy" with "Son of a Witch" Really, really good and the last book to anticipate "A Lion Among Men"

Love the book trailer, Julia. Great Job!

I am most definitely looking forward to your book! Hopefully the wizard gets it on the market soon!

You had me here with the first two videos on this set. I just haven't been very inspired to do a set recently myself. I tried putting one together the other night and got nowhere fast. Hopefully my musical muse comes back soon but until then I'll just enjoy everyone else's sets!
