Guest Post: Ednah Walters Author of Betrayed

Joining us today is Ednah Walters author of Awakened (Guardian Legacy #1) and Betrayed (Guardian Legacy #2).

Music, thou art my Muse

I love music, love listening and watching videos. Love dancing. In fact, my favorite workout is Zumba (after TRX). I love to write while listening to music. In fact, I get inspiration when I listen to music. Destiny’s Child song, Dangerously in Love kept me going when I wrote certain scenes in Awakened, book 1 of the Guardian Legacy. Recently while writing Betrayed, Breathless by Shayne inspired me to write the love scenes. Music can definitely set the stage for writing a scene.

Battle Scenes: Eye of the Tiger by Survivor,
Angst scenes: It’s my Life by Bon Jovi; Papa Don’t Preach by Madonna; Raise Your Glass by Pink; I’m Alive by Becca. Love is Battle Field by Pat Banatar
The party scene at the end of Betrayed: Lady in Red by Chris DeBurgh
Makeout scenes: Breathless by Shayne Ward; Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum; Dangerously in love by Destiny’s Child.

What music inspires you? Brings you out of the dumps? Make you want to kick someone’s butt? Makes you think of your ex or your present boyfriend? Share please.

About Ednah:

I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries before I graduated to Mills & Boons (starting with Janet Daily's Shutter the Sky). I enjoy good love stories, tingly mysteries and wondrous adventures. When I finished college and decided to be a stay-at-home mother, I devoured books like they were going out of production, until reading just wasn't enough. So I decided to teach myself to write fiction. I've written picture books, contemporary and romantic suspense, biracial/multicultural books, and finally YA fantasy. Most of them are still taking up RAM on my computer. Awakened is the first book in The Guardian Legacy series. It was released in September 2011 with rave reviews. Betrayed (book 2 in the series) was released August 1st 2011. Hunted, book 3 in the series, is due out in March.

When I'm not knee deep in battles between Guardians and demons, I write adult contemporary romance (the Fitzgerald family series), sassy, stubborn and gutsy women anyone can identify with and men anyone would be proud to claim. When not writing, I do things with my family, five children or my darling husband of 19 years. I live in a picturesque valley in Utah, the setting for my YA series.

Lil has come to terms with her life as a Guardian/demon hunter and the wielder of the Nephilim most powerful weapon-the Kris Dagger. She trains everyday to master her growing powers, gets along with her Guardian trainee friends, most of the time, and cherishes the time she spends with her human friends.

Just when she feels she belongs, her nature-bender father contacts her and warns her about a betrayal by someone close to her. Then Bran, the boy she loves, starts to act strange and one of her human friends acquires a supernatural ability. While Lil struggles find a connection between these three things, she begins to realize that someone is manipulating her and will stop at nothing, including hurting those she loves, to lure her to the dark side.

  1. Oh. I love music too especially love songs. That's why all of Taylor Swift songs inspires me in a lot of things. I like her song I'd Lie. Makes me remember the times I lied about what I feel to the person I like. ^^,

  2. I love music. I've never really thought about what music makes me feel what, usually I play music that speaks to me however I'm feeling at any given moment. When I'm feeling mellow I love to listen to Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, or Reliant K. When I'm feeling a bit more hyper I might turn on Rise Against, The Strokes, or The Offspring. When I feel like bouncing around I might listen to All Time Low, NeverShoutNever, All American Rejects or Panic at the Disco. Really, I just love music!

  3. Angel, I love love songs, too, sad songs, I-just-want-to-scream songs. My daughters like taylor Switf too.

  4. Shari, I like that, music for every mood. Anyone like J-pop or k-pop. My kids introduced me to some amazing singers.

  5. Um well, I like everything, from Classical to Crunk, so I really don't have a specific song or genre for anything.

  6. Thanks for this giveaway
