Is anyone else out there a child of the 80s and like me, still swoony when it comes to INXS?
I've got a special treat for you today. My oh-so-fabulous critique partner, Lisa Desrochers, has a big day tomorrow - her debut novel PERSONAL DEMONS hits bookstores. It is sizzling!!
While Lisa had already created her own fantastic playlist for PERSONAL DEMONS, as someone who always conjures music to accompany reading I think that INXS could do a pretty great job of soundtracking this addictive and original story.
First there's Frannie, who's struggling with both literal and metaphorical PERSONAL DEMONS might relate to this:
Of course Luc, the hotter than hell demon complicating her life make you feel like this:
And then there's Gabe, equally hot but brings heaven's lightness to counter Luc's darkness.
Congratulations to Lisa - I'm so excited that the world can get their hands on this fantastic book.
Bonus: Prizes!!! Leave a comment here and you can win this fabulous prize pack.
AND if you read the Amazing Race posts from the past we and can create the correct phrase from linking all the highlighted words in the posts, you can win big on Lisa's page tomorrow. Details here!! To collect the words, start with Elana Johnson's post!! You can follow the race through the other blog posts from there. Good luck!
I grew up Australian, so of course I adore their music :-)ReplyDelete
Yay! I love collecting all the words and stuff! It's so much fun :DReplyDelete
Thanks for having the contest! And love the song choices ;)
I was born in the 80's (84) but have no idea what you're referring to, so guess that doesn't count. Well, I should say... I didn't recognize the name, I do recognize the music. Devil Inside = good song.ReplyDelete
Even though I'm not reading any angel/demon novels due to working on my own paranormal romance draft with both, I have no problem adding books to my "to read" list. Personal Demons is one book I can't wait to add.
LOL! My PD playlist posts later today and there's no INXS =( Glad you fixed that for me! Thanks for the awesome post :pReplyDelete
I did not know INXS but now I do and I like what I hear:-)ReplyDelete
I have been so excited for this release for months!! Whoo hoo! Hoping it hits Aussie Bookstores tomorrow too or I'll have to wait to have it delivered... *cringes at the horror* ROFLMAO :DReplyDelete
INXS is kicking!
I can't believe it's out tomorrow!! Screech!ReplyDelete
One more day! and One more monthish for Nightshade :DReplyDelete
Hearing good things about this book! As well as Nightshade of course! Want to read both so bad!ReplyDelete
I'm anxiously awaiting Personal Demons, I hope I have enough money to get it!
Awesome music choices! I hadn't heard them before, =)ReplyDelete
I guess this is the last stop before Lisa's? I am so excited to figure out the correct phrase! this is so awesome. and hey, I think I am kind of familiar with INXS, I think I've listened to some of their songs before...ReplyDelete
I love puzzles, so this tour is right up my alley.ReplyDelete

I'm a big fan of INXS, so explaining anything related to them works well for me!ReplyDelete
Andrea!!! You nailed this. I love INXS and these songs/videos are perfect for Personal Demons. I feel like I just catapulted back into that hot-hot world. Whew.ReplyDelete
Great song choices! I can't wait to read this and see how the songs relate! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for participating!
I keep seeing so much buzz about this book. Now that I have Nightshade out of my system I really should check this one out. And the INXS references sooo don't help me resist I grew up on INXS. I even watched that silly reality show where they were looking for a someone to sing for them.ReplyDelete
Oh heck with it... Amazon here I come. Thanks a lot Andrea. :P *downloading INXS tunes and adding Personal Demons to cart* My husband is gonna kick my butt for buying another book this week. lol XD
Cool song choices! I'll keep them in mind when I read. :)ReplyDelete

Hehe, I'm an 80's child but I haven't really heard their music much.
My older brother was pushing me in a more metal direction! lol
I am dying for PD to come out. xReplyDelete
Can't wait to read Personal Demons!ReplyDelete
Just bought Personal Demons today at Borders! I was so so excited that they had it out early! I'm going to start it after I finish Firelight, which I'm hoping to finish today.ReplyDelete

I was born a good decade after the 80s and so I have no idea who these are--but hey, I'll have to admit, they don't sound half bad. Actually, that's an understatement--I'm liking these guys!ReplyDelete
So, so excited for Personal Demons. Plus, I'm hearing lots of positive feedback for Nightshade. I'm looking forward to reading both books!

My name is Andrea, and I am a child of the 80's, but not a fan of INXS. I was obsessed with Madonna and New Kids on the Block.ReplyDelete
Thanks for helping with the contest!
LoL, this is going to be burried in my brain for the next week. Fun post.ReplyDelete
PS. I LOVED NIGHTSHADE!!! NO, NO, I ADORED NIGHTSHADE. Great work.
Great contest! And the addition of INXS is fantastic.ReplyDelete
I'm a 90s kid but still they don't sound half bad :P I can't wait to read Personal Demons xDReplyDelete

Thanks for the contest. I am going to my B&N tomorrow to see if I can get my hands on a copy of Personal Demons. =]ReplyDelete
Awesome contest! Both the individual prize packs and the big ones :D Can't wait to read PD.. or Nightshade!ReplyDelete
I was lucky enough to receive and ARC! Personal Demons is so terrific! I enjoyed it every page and had a grin on my face a mile wide most of the time...ReplyDelete
Poor Frannie sure has a difficult decision ... to choose between Good or Better... or maybe better and BEST! hmmmm. Luc wins for me though!
What a terrific series! I'm certainly a fan of Lisa Desrochers.
Good song choices! 80's music rocks.ReplyDelete
I love the songs that you picked! :)ReplyDelete
Stopping by to say hi, pick up your words and to let you know that Nightshade too is on my wishlist. I'm in love with the fabulous cover.ReplyDelete
This Amazing Race is fun. The book sounds really good! (And so does Nightshade for that matter!)ReplyDelete
Ah! I'm finishing this contest late!ReplyDelete
Whoa! Those songs were weird, but in a good way. Lol.
Oh, and by the way Miz Cremer, I'm really excited for your book, Nightshade. I haven't had a chance to buy it yet, but I'll get it soon.ReplyDelete
This is soo much fun! Can't wait for the book! :DReplyDelete

Oh how I love me some INXS! Can't wait to read Personal Demons (and Nightshade too!!)ReplyDelete
Your post made me laugh so hard! And now I totally have this song from Dr. Who stuck in my head called You Put the Devil in Me! It's such a cute song, and just seems to fit this overall theme. Can't wait to read the book!!ReplyDelete
