Behind every favorite song is an untold story

I have been spending more time than is probably healthy considering creativity and how it works. Does it come from a muse? The bottom of a bottle? Life experiences?

Probably all of those contribute, but in my case, a great chunk of it comes from music. I have different types of music I listen to when writing different types of things — I tend to like rock music for action scenes, for example*.

* This means there’s a lot of rock music in my writing life.

The Music of Night’s Champion

When writing the books of the Night’s Champion I tried to listen to music with a certain theme. Thanks to the wonder that is Spotify there’s no practical limit to the amount of noise you can feed your brain, and I have mined that resource like a boss.

Today I’d like to share three playlists with you – the music that feels thematic (to me, which I guess may be the important piece of the puzzle here) for the books in the Night’s Champion trilogy. I hope you enjoy this piece of pure whimsy 🙂

The particularly observant among you will have noticed a book on the end there that is not actually out yet: Night’s End. It’s quite close to being ready! This not being my first rodeo, I’m relatively confident it’ll be available within a couple of weeks. I’ll give you all a heads-up when it launches: I’m planning to get it out there for a dollar for you list members first.

Y’all should get on this if you haven’t already: 52 real books printed on the corpses of dead trees. I wish I could join this, but Dean said sponsors can’t, which sucks, but that’s really in your favor: one less person to compete against, amirite?

It’s what it says on the tin: go in the draw to win 52 books, enough for one a week for a year. That, my friends, is what’s in the dictionary under, “Gangsta.”

Until next time 🙂
