Valkyrie Art. You find some, you don't find some.

Hi all,

While writing THE LIFEBLOOD OF ILL-FATED WOMEN, I searched for Valkyrie art online. I did Google Image searches, and searched Pinterest, Deviant Art and more. I found a wide variety of images. Some were exactly what I imagined, while others were very stylistic. And yes, I still think the classic D&D art in Deities and Demigods is a great depiction...

Which of these do you think really capture the spirit of a Valkyrie? Do you have an image you think is better? Link it in the comments. Send it to me. I'd love to see it.


Amazing art. I love the softness. Always love seeing what anime and manga artists will come up with.

Yep. One of my favorites of all time.
A great shot of a Valkyrie in action. 

Marvel comic's take. I like this artists style. I like the water color feel. 

Another Anime version. She looks more like an elf in a sexy Valkyrie Halloween costume.

Great style. Incredible mood. I love that it is a flat profile. It feels like it could be a stained-glass piece.

This came up in one of my searches. It was unique so I save it. Not stereotypical at all.

This is my favorite Valkyrie painting out there. I think it has everything. See looks like a Viking warrior woman and an angel at the same time. I love the dark wings and how you can see her drawing out his soul. Great moody color scheme. 

Thanks all!

Casting The Lifeblood of Ill-fated Women - Kevin James Breaux


Hi all,

Been awhile. Sorry. I was super busy with the release of TWO POLLUTED BLACK-HEART ROMANCES. And before that, a new edition of ONE SMOKING HOT FAIRY TAIL. These jobs seemed to swallow up about two months of time.

But I am back to promoting everything. And I wanted to update this blog with something big. Something I have been holding on to...

You all know me, I like to cast my characters as I write...so I can better picture them. But to be honest, this time around, I had only really considered one actor for one character while I wrote. The rest of the characters I had images of, but had not directly connected anyone to them.

When I was done and the book was published I sat down and some of these characters had actors who were so perfect they picked themselves.

Here is my casting thoughts on a LBIFW movie.


Blake Lively as ASTRID.

Blake Lively. You've seen her shark movie right? She is amazing. Even has the braid.  
Strong profile. She's very pretty but also looks like she could fight.

Astrid is equally strong as she is beautiful. When I look at Blake Lively, I see strength and beauty. I also see confidence and I see pride. She would make a perfect Astrid. She could put on a tiny bit of muscle and be ready. Nothing crazy. Just slight.

When I look at these pictures above, I truly see a viking princess warrior and more.



David Boreanaz as WARREN.

Look at that smile.

Warren is often referred to as "the smiling man" by Astrid. And David can smile! I think he is a perfect fit. Age. Build. Hair. Smile. Charming. Big but not too big. All of these are perfect matches for Lifeblood's Warren. And I like David as an actor too.  

Warren is troubled in parts of this book and I know Angel....I mean David....can brood. Yeah, wow, it would be cool to see him play Warren in the movie.



Tyler Labine as HAMMOND.

This guy has had some fun roles.

Oh Hammond. Oh Tyler. Both of you are comic relief. And Tyler here, he's a good looking brother for David. Not too much of a stretch to say they are related. Both have great smiles and good hair. Tyler could play that sleaziness in a very fun way. And offset David when David is brooding.



 Leelee Sobieski as YRSA.

Pretty much a perfect match.
Leelee would play Astrid's older sister, Yrsa pretty much perfectly. She is the right age and build for her. And she looks like she could be related to Blake. I think the two match as sisters. And she has that natural beauty that Yrsa shows in her parts of the book. From the movies I have seen her in, I think she could play troubled and unstable well. 



Alexander SkarsgÄrd as Jokul

One for the ladies...


Alexander is tall, handsome, tough looking, and is Nordic. So he's perfect. Yes, and perfect for playing Jokul. All you would need to do is have him wear some long hair and a beard. He would not even have to act. He would just walk around and pretty much BE Jokul... 

Yeah.... He's that cool. 


What do you think of my picks? Did you imagine someone else? I'd love to hear your thoughts. And if you have not read The Lifeblood of Ill-fated Women then you can grab a paperback or a ebook on Kindle. If you do Kindle Unlimited, it's there for your enjoyment.

New LBIFW Review - 5 stars!

new award

Reviewed By Ruffina Oserio for Readers’ Favorite 5 Stars!

The Lifeblood of Ill-fated Women by Kevin James Breaux is a glorious tale of war and bravery, a story of a female Viking warrior who finds herself in a very tight and challenging situation. Growing up beside her father, Astrid the White has learned the art of war from the very best in the land, and has harnessed her skills so well that she gains the reputation as one of the finest fighters among the Vikings. But when she wakes up in the strange city of Birka, to the sound of war, she knows something must be wrong. She quickly discovers that it’s not a test from the gods or her father to have her prove herself, but staying alive. But can she win a battle against the monsters, the creatures seething with darkness and inconceivable strength?

This is an incredible book that poignantly represents the Viking spirit, crafted with wonderful characters like Astrid, Kol, Yrsa and many others. The Lifeblood of Ill-fated Women will transport readers into a world with the kind of violence and warfare only the Vikings know. The plot is fast-paced, constructed with short chapters that are quick to read, all packed with intense action. Kevin James Breaux stands out as a master of his craft, and the writing is exquisite, laced with vivid descriptions that allow readers to penetrate the minds of the characters and to relive the electrifying actions in their imaginations. I enjoyed the references to Viking lore and mythology, especially the part that Odin, the father of all the Vikings, plays in the life of the characters, and the powerful quest for Valhalla that throbs within their breasts. This is a gripping story that reads like a great movie.

Thanks for reading this new review!
