Sexy Cedric: Everything I Need to Know I Learned from David Bowie

Everything I Need to Know I Learned From David Bowie
Cedric MacKinnon

Right—so, how does one become a badass vampire and look fabulous whilst doing so?  Sure, I had some wonderful teachers in the martial arts and weaponry, but all the really important things, things that make me stand out from the dreary lot of bloodsuckers, I learned from the Master of Cool, the Sultan of Style, the one- and-only David Bowie.

Read on to the end to leave a comment for your free ebook of Annals of the Immortyls!

1.       Red hair is hot.  David Bowie is a natural blond, yet he continually dyed his hair red.  Why?  The answer is clear: it’s sexy to be a ginge.

2.       Although sparkling is definitely taboo for Immortyls, a little strategically applied glitter is fabulous.  Bowie once played a vampire in The Hunger.  Never did he sparkle-- and he was the Guru of Glitter. 

3.       Looking like a pirate can be a good thing—eye patch optional.

4.       Real Men Wear Silk.  One doesn’t have to overcompensate on the masculinity.  Men who wear make-up and spandex often get the hottest women.

(It’s even more fabulous to be bisexual and share the love!)

5.     Be wary of strangers; one of them could be the Goblin King.

I should have listened to this advice and not bought into my master Raj’s plans for me.

 Oh well,if I hadn’t I would probably be dead now—not nearly as fabulous.

6.       Play the guitar and sing.  Everyone loves a troubadour.  My instrument of choice is a vintage Fender Stratocaster. 

7.       Just when your public thinks they have you sorted out, change your image!

The New Cedric: Badass Assassin

So, there you have it!  Of course, one doesn’t slavishly follow the master.  One must evolve a personal style-- bring innovations into the canon, so to speak.

Cedric, dear boy, of COURSE you take the fabulous Bowie as your guide. Nobody else would be gorgeous AND edgy enough for you. I adore your new look. I wish you would visit my blog and post about your tattoos.

Marian, I'd love to visit your blog again! I'm working on questions for your mermen.

They're mermayds, darling. Email me, and I'll send you a story. There's also one on my blog. "Blood of Mermayds"

Mermayds, I stand corrected. Trotting over there.
