Update, Reminder

First off, my newest novella (The Perfect Murder) is being released on Halloween! It is a satirical/Dark Comedy How To guide to committing the perfect murder told by an inmate of a women’s prison, as recorded by her psychiatrist. Originally it was titled, “The Monologues of a Murder,” but I like #TPM better. If you would like to be reminded so you can pick it up I have an event posted on my Author page

The Perfect Murder

Secondly, make sure to like my page because with the new release I’m randomly selecting five people for a free copy. AND it is the best place for the latest updates on my writing! I know it may seem like I am a flake as I don’t write much on here, but lately I have been posting more on my Author Courtney M. Wendleton page than ever! I even released some information about another new book that might be released in time for Christmas! I also love hearing from everyone, so drop in say hi and have a little chat.

Third, I am still trying to raise money to produce my first audio book. I have raised $100, but am still far from my goal. Every little bit helps, and I can throw in a free copy of one of my books as a donation prize over $10. you can find it at https://www.gofundme.com/fs48u8as Thank you soo much!

#Musical Monday Review #18: I Kissed a Vampire

Overview: Dylan is bitten by a Vampire and started transforming into one. He struggles with his new fangs, weird dreams and not biting the girl he loves. Then Tray shows up to teach him how to be a Vampire and get the girl. His girl Sarah is bitten and starts changing too. She wants to embrace new life, but than also wants to find a cure, while Dylan is in denial and trying to stop it. They go to see Dr. Dan Helsing and find that the Vampire who bit Dylan wasn’t too powerful so he may not change completely. Sarah on the other hand was bitten by a very powerful very Vampire and will change as well as belong to Tray. In order to make the cure, they just need a drop of Tray’s blood. The two are pulled apart in their quest for blood and giving into their true selves. In his love for Sarah, Dylan’s powers start to emerge and we learn Tray is obsessed with Sarah because he has mommy issues. Sarah breaks the the spell and they are able to create a cure. Sarah almost died but is brought back with a kiss. The cure failed, but the couple found happiness together.

Opinion: Though the lyrics leave a bit to be desired, the music is cool. For a girl who wanted to break away from the goody-two shoes personality, she really wanted to find a cure and change back to normal. Its like here is her chance and she chickens out. I thought that was a little unrealistic or uncharacteristic of her. Rocky Horror Picture Show comes to mind with the duality if Sarah’s fighting good vs evil inside of her, compared to Janet’s similar struggle.

Really over all it looks like something Disney would put out during their 13 Days of Halloween. For me that’s good, I love those movies.

Lucas Grabeel shows a darker side than when he was in High School Musical. He embraces the emo look, foregoing his scary pink attire.

“Just a Little Bit of Nibble” is my favorite favorite choreography. We see Tray teasing Phillip about getting his first kiss and Phillip struggling between kissing, biting and keeping Tray away from Sarah.

“Just a Drop” is reminiscent of “Your the One That I Want” from Grease. I’m not sure why, it just popped in my head as I watched Sarah, the good girl next door type, sing about how she wants to break out of her shell and take a bite out of life (pun intended).

Note: Some people may have seen the mini episodes on YouTube or another website, but a lot of people have had issues finding the whole musical. I found it on Hulu if you are wanting to check it out.
