Lee: Hey there everyone! When we were prepping for the Superheroes blog tour, we wound up with a couple of extra interviews. Can't just let that kind of goodness go to waste, can we? So... I’m Lee Brazil, author of A Man of Unusual Talent, and these other people are CC Crane and Mat Giraud, men who inspired that story. Starred in it? Really? Okay. Mat insists on using the word “starred”; he thinks he’s Robert Downey Jr. or something. That other cluster of people over by the coffee pot is Havan Fellows and… I’ll let her introduce those two who are… Yeah. Might not want to interrupt them right now.
Havan: *waves* Hello, Havan here, and these two who are enjoying a heated debate on the pros and cons of best friends and siblings would be Dean Wades and Gavin Trevor, the main characters in my high flying superhero romantic comedy Flyboy’s First Misadventure.
Lee: Anyway, CC and Mat are here today to share a few of their favorite songs with you. *blinks* I’m not sure what Dean and Gavin are here for… putting on a show of a different sort? Anyway, go ahead CC. Tell the people about your favorite songs.
CC: Well, I am a huge music fan, and narrowing this list down to just five songs was nearly an impossible task.
Mat: But we persevered, and came up with a list that we think rocks.
CC: First, no song list is complete without David Bowie’s Lady Stardust. There’s something heroically tragic about the title character, and the narrator.
Mat: CC… you don’t have to rationalize each choice. Just tell them. These are the songs we love.
CC: Okay, also… Tom Petty -Don’t Fade on Me and Steve Miller’s Fly like an Eagle were my must haves.
Mat: And I insisted that any favorites list wasn’t complete without Foreigner’s Hot Blooded or Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’.
Lee: What an awesome playlist! :D Havan? Can you uh…get Dean down from the ceiling so we can hear his favorite songs, too? There’d better be coffee left in that pot!
Havan: Hey, I’m only the author, not the babysitter…jeeze, if these guys did what I wanted them to do the book might be a helluva lot different. *snorts* Now, I’m not the type to listen to music while I write, but this question isn’t for me, is it? Dean? Gav?
Dean: Oh boy, okay, I know I’m not supposed to fess up to this but I’m a Swiftie. Love her new album 1989, so instead of naming songs I’m just throwing the whole darn album out there and saying yes…that.
Gavin: Tia’s in charge of the music when you two are together, isn’t she?
Dean: Yeah *hangs head*…but that doesn’t mean I don’t agree with her on this one. That woman knows her business.
Gavin: I’ll give you that. I’m a little more diverse on my playlist—Love Locked Away by R. City featuring Adam Levine, Adam kills it on that one, Billy Joel’s My Life is personally dedicated to—
Dean: I love those songs too…
Gavin: Censoring me, Dean? Which reminds me, I also like Kansas’s Carry on Wayward Son, and when I’m in a particularly appropriate mood I always tune in to some Three Days Grace, preferably Pain or Animal I Have Become. But on a lighter side Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis’s Thrift Shop…oh my fu—…um…crap it makes me laugh every single time.
Havan: Wow… I wanna say you can learn so much from the music people listen to, but Gavin might’ve stumped me. lmao :)
For more Story Orgy Superhero goodness, our co-writers Hank Edwards and Em Woods will be releasing their books soon. :)

A MAN OF UNUSUAL TALENT:
Collin Crane is a man of unusual talent. Really unusual. Too weird for the Guinness Book unusual. On the fifty-year plan to a doctoral degree in physics, and a quiet quest to understand his own oddities, Collin clings to obscurity. This superhero has learned the hard way that it's better to be safe than sorry.
Enter Mathias Giraud, football hero, local cop, and CC's secret fantasy since high school. Mat's a simple man with a hero complex fostered by comic books and Marvel movies. Saving the world is his fantasy, but since his roots are firmly planted in Morrisonville and reality, he'll settle for protecting and serving. Until he clashes with CC at the local convenience store and is reminded of his own high school crush.
When marshmallows are involved, the course of true love is bound to get sticky.
Secrets? Oh yeah, Dean Wades has a doozy. When he goes up, he doesn’t necessarily come back down. Okay, that’s not true. Dean’s a master at falling, it’s the landing that could use improvement—a lot of improvement. After thirteen years of attempting to conquer this gravity defying mystery, he can no longer live with not knowing what he is anymore. So he heads cross-country to see the two people who just might be able to give him the answers he seeks…his folks.
Easygoing Gavin Trevor is always willing to help his family, even when they have ulterior motives…like forcing him to make up with his annoying older brother. When a simple task at his parent’s house puts him in a position of danger, he’ll need a lot more than luck to avoid a serious injury—he’ll need his very own superhero.
And the fates collide, well sort of. It may not be love at first sight—Gavin was unconscious in Dean’s arms for their initial introduction…but perhaps these two men can make it a relationship at first flight?
A threat against Gavin’s family throws a wrench in their plans, and while Dean gladly offers his amateur talent to help the mission, Gavin doesn’t want to put his rescuer’s life in jeopardy by risking exposure of the greatest secret ever.
This proves to be a rescue adventure for the books. Or is that a rescue misadventure?
