Virtual Blog Tour – meet Joseph Eastwood

My guest today is Mr. Joseph Eastwood.  Joseph hails from my dream vacation land in the United Kingdom!  (Hmmm, maybe I can manage a business expense trip to UK to interview him in length.)

Without further ado, give it up for Joseph Eastwood!

The question asked this week:  What song describes one of your books and why? 

I don’t really think of my books being described in terms of songs. However, when I think of my book, Lumen, I always think of this one song that I listened to whilst writing it, and that song is Drops of Jupiter by Train. I liked this song because of how calming it was, and also because of the lyrics… in Lumen there is a lot of mention to the solar system just like there is in this song. When I do self-publish Lumen, and if you read it, it’s likely that you won’t be thinking of this song.

    “Drops Of Jupiter”

Now that she’s back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there’s time to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey
Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated
Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there
Now that she’s back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that there’s room to grow, hey, hey
Now that she’s back in the atmosphere
I’m afraid that she might think of me as plain ol’
Jane Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land
Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there
Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you’re wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze-dried romance five-hour phone conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me
Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the Milky Way
[Repeat 1st Chorus]

I have a question for you guys, have you read a book recently that reminded you of a certain song? If so, what song and why?

  1. Ellie – you’ll need a travel assistant to go with you and it just so happens I have a passport, so whenever you’re ready to go, let me know. It’ll take me about two minutes to pack.

    Mr. Eastwood – wonderful song. I was inspired to write a short story based on an image that came to me while listening to Sade, “No Ordinary Love.” The image came to me so clearly, and the story flowed as if someone else was writing it through me. Love that feeling of clear inspiration. Continued success. 🙂


  2. Great post Joseph. Looking forward to your book.

    Ellie you can blog about all sorts of things from there and so it can be a business trip for sure… evil social media coach here… LOL
