Soundtrack for your book

Tara over at the Bodacious Pen inspired this post today.

A year ago I realized that certain songs really got under my skin and reminded me of my novel. None of them are really truly love songs...most are sort of angsty getting-to-love songs. For most of my book my MC Kate and her crush sort of dance around their feelings. And they almost miss each other.

I started pulling songs into a folder called "Kate's Songs" on my iTunes.  Look for my list on the right sidebar. 

In particular, FIRST TIME by Lifehouse fits my characters perfectly. Enjoy! And, okay, I'm old enough to be his ever-so-slightly-older cousin, by isn't Jason Wade adorable?

I like the idea of keeping a playlist on your blog! I should do that.

Hey, I like the new look, Kristine! Awesome!

Great song, too. I love their music, but somehow, I hadn't heard this one!

I need to get music for my characters!

Thanks-I think some writing lends itself to a playlist. I try not to force it. I just like what I like, and if it works with something I'm working on, then great!

I hope everyone likes the new look. There is no mention of red shoes in my book, but Kate would absolutely wear these sneakers.
