Setting the Mood with My Playlist

Music for me helps to set the tone inside my head for what I’m about to write. Some people need total silence when they work, and on occasion, I’ve done just that. But most of the time when I need to get into the right headspace, I search for the perfect song.

With Undying Hunger, I ended up with eight songs on my playlist. Markus and Alexandria’s story gave me a range of emotions from anger, angst, to extreme passion. So when I needed to dive deep into their minds and draw on their feelings, I’d pop in my ear buds and pick from my song list.

For example, when I wanted to feel Alex’s growing kick-butt confidence I’d reach for Dark Horse, by Katy Perry.

In the beginning, Markus is the perfect antihero. A fallen Enclave warrior who’s lost everything he’s ever cared about and doesn’t believe he has a chance of ever reclaiming his life. Closer, by Kings of Leon has an awesome vibe that really suited this part of the story’s mood.

Later, the tone shifts with Markus’ character, and What I Want, by Daughtry rocked this vibe!

Toward the end of the story—this is a romance of course—and Adore You, by Miley Cyrus says it all beautifully!

These are a few examples from my playlist. Below you’ll find the complete list embedded for you to sample. Click around and enjoy!

Are there songs that speak to you and take you right back into your favorite romance? Leave a comment, and I’ll randomly pick one winner to win a PDF copy from the Enclave’s backlist (book one, two, or three) Plus a $5 Amazon Gift Card!

All she can remember is hunger...for him.

A year ago, Alexandria Stevens strode through the doors of Wicked Ways and into the arms of a man—a monster, really—who stole everything from her. Her memory. Her life. Now she's a creature of darkness with only hazy images in her mind of that night and a confusing jumble of emotions. A fierce hate...and an even fiercer desire for Markus Santini.

Markus has walked through this world for more than a hundred years, knowing exactly who and what he was, until Alexandria undid it all. Undid him. When a former vampire colleague threatens one of the Enclave’s own, Markus is needed—but only as the dark, powerful creature he once was. And in order to become that, he must find the arms of a woman who despises him with every breath she can no longer take.
