I’ve been crazy busy these past few weeks as my second book, His Darkest Embrace hits the shelves on Tuesday, October 26th! I’m excited, scared, excited and freaking terrified! Writing a book is like having a baby…it cooks for a long time and then the inevitable happens…it arrives and you go Holy Crap….I made that?
But enough about that. I’ve been doing a lot of guest blogs etc and want to talk about music instead of my jaguars.
I am the kind of writer who can’t listen to music while actually writing. I’m a singer and well when a song is playing that I know, I can’t turn it off and will start to sing. It’s hard to write and sing at the same time. I will however listen to music to get me in a certain frame of mind for a scene. For example, at the end of the last book I wrote there was an intense fight scene and I listened to the soundtrack of BlackHawk Down. The music was heavy, aggressive and perfect for where my head was at.
The same goes for when I’m writing an emotional scene. Nothing words better than listening to a sad song that pulls at the heartstrings.
So my question today is, what song brings you to your knees? The one that makes you cry no matter where you are?
What about your fave party song? The one that lifts your spirits whenever you hear it?
I’ll check back and share my picks and am looking forward to hearing yours!
His Darkest Embrace
A solitary hunter with no regard for the human world, Jagger Castille is a shifter living on the edge. A woman who calls him enemy will give him reason to live . . .
Jagger is a creature of the night—Skye Knightly soars in the sun. Natural adversaries, they are now joined in a mission entrusted to Skye's family centuries ago: nothing less than the salvation of the Earth.
Wounded and bitter, Jagger sought escape in the solitude of the jungle, driven by a need to disappear forever . . . until a mysterious shifter who calls to his soul and feeds a yearning long forgotten pulls him from his dark path. A courageous warrior, Skye's passion is equal to Jagger's—but can she trust a man whose secrets are as devastating as her own?
Each is the other's sole hope for survival. But a dark and twisted truth is leading them toward the ultimate sacrifice for a love they may never live to claim.
