Please give a warm welcome to supernatural short-story author, Emma Meade, who is joining us with her book, Night Sighs and the band The Dead Beats!
Meet The Dead Beats, the hottest band in London right now. Everyone in the UK and beyond has a thing for the lead singer, Tristan (no last name). When you're as hot and charismatic as him, you don't need one. Everyone knows someone broke Tristan's heart two years ago. But no one knows just who she is. Tristan sings about her plenty in his songs, but he's never named this girl, so the wondering, the speculation goes on.
The Dead Beats are bringing 80s style rock 'n' roll back. In fact, looking at them with their long hair, leather pants and vests with nothing underneath, you'd think you've stepped back in time. They're old school rockers and everyone loves them. Alongside Tristan, you have Mike - the quiet one. He's kind of a 'still waters run deep' sort of a fellow. For some reason it's the mums who like him best. Then you have Dan, the handsome, rough around the edges type. The youngest members are Jamie and Teddy. All the teenagers fancy Teddy with his mop of messy hair and lopsided grin. Jamie is the messer of the group, always cracking jokes and generally being a pain in the ass.
But Tristan holds it all together. He has a, what's the word? Magnetism. Yeah, that's it. Older than his years, definitely an old soul, but a lost boy when it all comes down to it. The girls in the audience want to take him home with them, heal his wounds and steal his heart.
If you need a visual for Tristan, just picture The Boss circa 1985 singing "Because the Night" and "I'm on Fire" up on stage.
Here's a little scene from "The Dead Beats", the first short story in the Night Sighs collection.
The band feature in two of the five short stories in Night Sighs: "The Dead Beats" and "Until My Body is Dust". They'll be around more in Night Whispers, the novel I'm currently working on.
