It was sometime in 2009, when I was neck deep in my studies as a math major, when “Interview With The Vampire” was broadcast on television. It struck a note within my mind; it reminded me of all the beautiful, non-mathematical wonders of human existence. I was quite buried in numbers, equations, and proofs at the time, so I found the dark romanticism and technologically unsophisticated setting very appealing. I eventually read several of the Vampire Chronicles books and now I am a great fan!
I am a “Person of the Page”, meaning that I participate in the fan discussions on Anne Rice’s Facebook page. I have heard her say that she really loves the song “You Give Love A Bad Name” by Bon Jovi, and that Jon Bon Jovi reminds her of her Prince Lestat. I put this song together partially because I, too, love 80’s rock and also as a way of sucking up to an awesome famous author lady, and ALSO as a way of not-so-surreptitiously promoting my big crazy novel, The Song and the Pendant!
Thank you for listening! If you really enjoyed it, I would be ever so grateful if you would share and/or subscribe. I would also like you to go and get all the cash out of your wallet and mail it to me. And please include a sticky note with your bank account information, date of birth, and social security number. If you feel like writing me a check, please send it directly to any one of this country’s fine banking institutions, as I am on the hook to just about all them for the cost of my education.
Cheers, my dear YouTube friends and visitors!
