Tine-In Tuesday: The 2nd Law–Isolated System

Welcome back to another installment of Tune-In Tuesday! This week, we’re visited the world of my current work-in-progress, RETRIBUTION, with a song from Muse called “Isolated System”. For those of us who’ve seen the movie World War Z, this song is going to sound eerily familiar. This song is not only the opening music for the zombie-flick, but it played throughout the film, mostly during transitional scenes.

Tune-In Tuesday: Hail to the King

Welcome to a new installment of Tune-In Tuesday! This week’s song is the title track to the new album from Avenged Sevenfold (A7X)–“Hail to the King”. When I first heard this tune, I automatically thought about J.R. Ward’s BDB series. I mean, come on, the next book due out in this series is, “The King”. BUT… I then thought about my current WIP–you know, the one I’m sloooowly revising and editing but will have completely polished and ready for submission […]

Tune-In Tuesday: I’m Not Alright

I’ve been a Shinedown kick lately, so today’s song comes to us from … you guessed it, Shinedown. 😀 This song is from their latest album, Amaryllis — which I highly recommend for immediate purchase and download. Have a listen of “I’m Not Alright”: Still not convinced that this album is worth immediate download? Listen to more tracks from the album over on Grooveshark. 🙂 *Tune-In Tuesday is a weekly post for musical sharing. Whatever song’s keeping you sane or […]

Song of the Week: In For the Kill (Skream Remix) by La Roux

I’m baaaaaack!!! Can’t believe it’s already been a month, but it was very much needed in order to get some things taken care of in both my personal and writing lives. As with every Monday, today showcases a Song of the Week. This particular song was actually hand-selected by my husband. He put it on my mp3 player then stated he felt like I’d be inspired by it. And he was right. I’ve found quite a bit of inspiration by […]

Happy Monday, everyone! Brace yourselves – this week’s song can be a rather powerful one if you open your heart and let it in.

Song of the Week: My Immortal by Evanescence

Happy Monday, everybody! I first heard this song while watching the movie Dare Devil. The music and lyrics resonated with me and to this day, I still turn to this song to write scenes with heavy emotional power, scenes where a character sits back and reflects on the feelings they have for a loved one they’ve lost, the scenes that pull on a reader’s heart strings and never let go. My hope is that this song may resonate with you […]

Song of the Week: Diary of Jane by Breaking Benjamin

Happy Monday, everyone!! As I was listening to Pandora yesterday and pounding out the words (thank goodness the Muse was in good spirits!), this particular song came on and seemed to influence the scene I was working on in a way I didn’t even expect. Don’t you just love it when that happens? So of course I just to share it all of you! Hope you enjoy! :0) The Diary Of Jane lyricsSongwriters: Fincke, Aaron; Szeliga, Chad; James, Mark; Burnley, […]

Song of the Week: Serenity by Godsmack

I’ve been under the weather all weekend, so this week I really wanted a song that would instill a bit of calm into what I’m sure will be a chaotic week. After missing a day and a half of work last week, and considering that I will be out of the office traveling for 3 days this week, I’ve really got to find some serenity in order to keep myself from pulling my hair out by Wednesday. I do hope […]
