by Eric R. Asher
Series: Vesik #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publication: June 16th 2014
Some things can never be undone. The horrors I’ve defeated—or even caused—with my own hands … they are nothing compared to what’s coming. Philip Pinkerton has brought his madness upon my family, my own blood. His army of necromancers is on the move, harbingers of a great darkness. I fear the war has begun … and damn, I don’t get paid enough for this.
~Top Ten Influences~
There are many authors that have inspired me with their incredible creativity and prose:
Robert Asprin – Myth Adventures was one of the earliest series I loved growing up.
Holly Lisle – Her blogs and guides on writing taught me a great deal about the craft.
The libraries in Saint Louis that enabled me to take so many wonderful adventures as a child.
The passionate teachers I had who helped instill a love for literature.
~Winter’s Demon Playlist~
I was on a serious Offspring kick while working on Winter’s Demon, as you’ll probably notice. My Chemical Romance and Florence + The Machine were also on repeat quite a bit. I tend to use different sections of my playlists to help set different moods while writing. I grew up playing the cello, and music has always had a big role in my life. — Eric R. Asher
The Offspring: Amazed / The Kids Aren’t Alright / Come Out Swinging / Vultures / Half-Truism / You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid / A Lot Like Me / Can’t Repeat
My Chemical Romance: Helena / The Ghost Of You / Cemetery Drive / Famous Last Words / SING / DESTROYA
Florence + The Machine: Only If for a Night / Shake It Out / What the Water Gave Me / No Light, No Light / Seven Devils
A few others that found their way onto my playlist while writing Winter’s Demon:
Fireworks At Dawn by Senses Fail
Islands by The xx
The Humbling River by Puscifer
Sail by AWOLNATION
Sometimes the Line Walks You by Murder By Death
Bleeding Out by Imagine Dragons
Into Dust by Mazzy Star
I love this playlist, Eric! If I could listen to music while I write, I imagine we’d have a similar list of bands and songs to compare.
