Review Excerpts

Wednesday, September 7, 2016


Whoops, it's been almost a month since my last post. I'll be totally honest here - I did very little writing this summer. There are various reasons/excuses, but since I can't go back in time and change things, I'm trying not to beat myself up too much over it.

For most of my past books, I've been able to find at least one piece of music that fits what I'm writing and that I can use to help get me in the mood. I'm over a quarter into Seductive Suspect, and until the other day, I hadn't thought of anything that I felt captured the tone of the book (either parts or the whole thing). My generic writing playlists weren't cutting it, either.

Luckily, my satellite radio did me a favor in the car the other day. It's not perfect and doesn't fit 100% (few songs do), but for now, it's good enough. The radio reminded me of Bob Seger's "We've Got Tonight", which I've decided, upon re-listening, is an excellent song regardless. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a good piano part.

The lyrics are more in line with what I have planned for the end of the book, but it's working for now, so I'm going with it. I'll also admit that said plans include the "we might die tomorrow, let's bang!" trope that Mass Effect is so fond of. Hey, as far as tropes go, it's not a *terrible* one.... ;)

  1. Yass! I love piano. My current project's theme song also only applies to the end. Those are the best. They help me stay focused. Not that I have a focusing problem. :P It's a very epic techno song. Very dramatic. :)
