Next Stop on Virtual Book Tour for Deadly Lullaby: The Compelling Beasts Blog
The virtual book tour for crime fiction thriller, Deadly Lullaby, published by Penguin-Random House, kicked off on September 22, 2015, with I Heart Reading and runs through October 22, 2015. Next up on the tour is an interview of author, Robert McClure, by the Compelling Beasts Blog, a blog dedicated to antagonists, antiheroes and other compelling beasts. The interview elicits insight into McClure’s experiences contributing to his inspiration for the book, including a “witching” experience as a child involving a famous, fictional villain. When asked to tell us a little more about the villains in Deadly Lullaby, McClure says:
The unique feature about Deadly Lullaby is that most people would probably have a hard time finding a character in it who’s “good” in the traditional sense, including the two protagonists, Babe and Leo Crucci. From the very start, though, my goal in writing crime fiction has always been to create characters that thieve, kill and create other forms of mayhem who readers can’t help but love, and the guiltier the reader feels about it, the better.
McClure then proceeds to outline additional, central characters, besides the father-son duo of Babe and Leo. These include Italian mafia, an Asian drug lord, and a Russian mobster boss. The Compelling Beasts Blog also includes an excerpt from McClure’s rollicking novel of family and felony. To read the excerpt and the full interview, click here.
