Goodreads asked S.A. McAuley:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

S.A. McAuley The beginning of the character James Deacon of Damaged Package was an NSFW picture and a song sent to me by a friend over two years ago. The man in the pic is ripped, hot and looks like he would be crazy fun. Enter the quirky badass ex-SWAT officer Deacon.

(I'll be revealing that pic and the playlist on blogs in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!)
