My stint on the radio

Hello,

Just a quick post so everyone, if you want to, can hear my little chat on the local hospital radio for their book week.

Playlist

Hi lovely folks,

I hope those who have bought or downloaded my book are enjoying it 🙂 for those who haven’t bought it yet, according to the people already reading it, you’re missing out! 🙂

So, whilst I write, I listen to music.I know some writers can’t listen to music, it can distract, especially when a great song comes on and you just can’t help singing like a cat along with the person who can actually sing. I find that certain songs really get me in the zone and help my writing and my mood.  I’ve picked out certain songs, or a selection of songs because if I put all the songs on here this post would be very long.  For those who have read the book, you will be able to figure out where the songs fit. For those who haven’t read the book, don’t worry, the songs don’t give anything away. You will simply have that moment when you hear the song and read the book and think ‘oh, yeah.’

These songs appear in no particular order.

The first song on my list  helped me with certain scenes in the book, I will not go into details 🙂 It’s a beautiful song by Julia Stone and Angus.

Muse has been a favourite of mine since my husband introduced them to me some 10 years ago. I must admit I didnt like their music to begin with but I love them now 🙂

Two personal favourties which were played a lot during writing Returned were ‘Time is Running Out’ and ‘The Uprising’.

I love Christina Perri, her songs are just lush, a favourite of mine is Arms. This song was listened to the most during the middle of the book and at the end. It’s perfect for certain scenes.

Lastly, a playlist of mine is not complete without a little Ludovico Einaudi. His music is simply stunning.

I hope you enjoy listening to the above songs, they may just inspire you to write something 🙂

Until next time.
