Tune-In Tuesday: Let It Be

Welcome back to another Tune-In Tuesday installment! 😀 Today I wanted to go back a bit in music history to visit with my favorite band of all time. The Beatles We each have that one song, or that one band, movie, TV show, or toy from our childhood that instantly plants a smile on our lips and warmth in our hearts. The Beatles are that band for me. Their music was the first I can recall ever hearing. They were […]

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 […]

When it comes to creating, writing and editing, most of us writerly types tend to lean on movie soundtracks. And the one movie soundtrack that I’ve been leaning on these days is Salt.

Musical Monday: NaNoWriMo Playlist & The Song of the Week

It’s absolutely incredible how fast time flies. Here we are on October 31st, one day away from the start of NaNoWriMo. I’ve been doing some super prep work these past two weeks – researching locations and backgrounds on a few new characters (I think that’s as close to plotting as I get these days), getting Scrivener and all of my research set up on my PC so I can hit the ground running tomorrow (after the day job, of course), and […]

Song of the Week: The Promise by In This Moment

Happy Monday everyone!!! Today’s song is one that I haven’t been able to stop listening to for the past week! And I must give credit where credit is due: my husband. 🙂 He found this band after searching for new female-lead rock bands. When he came across this song, he told me that I had to listen to it because it would fuel my writing. And you know what? He was right!!  I’m an urban fantasy and paranormal romance writer, so this song […]

This Week In Favs……….

10) “The Big Post of Querying” by Kat Zhang on The Katacomb.. This particular post was in response to a question posed to Kat in regards to how she went about querying – which is a daunting task that I think all aspiring authors tend to get the heebe-jeebes about (I know I do). I love Kat’s honesty in her postings. It’s incredibly refreshing and it’s encouraging to hear that within two months of querying, she found herself an agent. […]

Song of the Week: Butterflies and Hurricanes by Muse

The theme for this week’s song is: “What’s it to ya?” Personally, this particular song holds many meanings, and not just for me. Each one of the characters in my MS had a moment, whether in their ‘’behind the scenes’ backstories or in the middle of the page that called for this song to played in the background. The personal meanings to them? “Time to take a chance!” “Now’s your moment!” “Change it. Change everything about you. You’re no longer […]

Song of the Week: Over and Out (Renholder Version) by Alkaline Trio

While writing this past Sunday (over 4,000 words added to my current WIP), I found myself listening to this song over and over and over….and over.It’s a sad one, but it managed to strike a perfect chord with my writing and pushed me to dig fairly deep inside myself and project those emotions onto the page. So, of course I felt the need to share with everyone! Enjoy! Continue to send me your favorite songs! As always, I love listening […]
