Music makes my world go round.

I’ve said with every book that I’ve written how important music is to my writing. It is a vital component
to my creative process. I tell myself the characters’ story through a mix tape of songs. Butterfly Kisses
was no different. This playlist consists of songs for specific scenes and some that captured the overall
theme of the book.

Parlor Mob – Into the Sun

Duce – Nobody Likes Me

Brand New – Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention

LMFAO – Without You

Demi Lavato – Mistake

Justin McRoberts – One

Miike Snow – Silvia

He Is We – Our July in the Rain

Birdy – Shelter

Ryan Adams – Lucky Now

Animal Kingdom – Strange Attractor

Sia – Breath Me

Skylar Grey – Invisible

Cobra Starship – Don’t Blame the World it’s The DJ’s Fault

Enrique Iglesias – Ayer

Ashes Remain – On My Own

Isaac Haines – Steal

Jesse Thomas – Fire

Graham Colton – Everything You Are

Sara Bareilles – Gravity

Grouplove – Colours

Pearl Jam – Just Breathe

Safety Suite – Anywhere But Here

Graffiti 6 – Free

Parachute – The Mess I Made

Safety Suite – Life in the Pain

Graham Colton – Best Days

This playlist along with all of my writing playlists are available for download on iTunes
and Spotify. I would have to say the most impactful song of the whole playlist is Safety Suite’s Life in the
Pain which is my love song to Lacey. It is a theme song to the whole series really, she has a lot of lessons
to learn throughout these books, and I’m proud of where she ends up.

Friday Five Fave – Childhood books

*I’m a little late, it’s been a busy week*

When I was little there were a few picture books that I would read repeatedly. These are the books that I could still quote lines from today. ” ‘How was your class trip to the farm?’ ‘It was ok, untill the cow started crying.’ ”

5. Green Eggs and Ham -Dr. Seuss (really any Dr. Seuss books would work here but that was my favorite, I always looked at it in the dentist office, for whatever reason)

4. Bread and Jam for Francis – Russell Hoban (Again, I loved all the Francis books, and once I got a record of all the books read from the Library and listened to it non-stop for 3 weeks.)

3. Care Bears Book of Favorite Bedtime Stories – Illustrators: Tom Cooke, Troy Howell, Leslie H. Morrill, Stella Ormai, Bob Pepper, David Wiesner (This was a collection of folklore fables and poems, and this book might have began my love for poetry.)

2. Happy Birthday Moon – Frank Asch

1. The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate The Wash – Trinka Hake Nobel  (All time, hands down favorite childhood book.)

What is your favorite Childhood book? I’d love to walk down memory lane with you 🙂

Swaag swag-swag- Sswwaagg

Seriously, I am blaming my foggy head and cold meds for this one.

Join the event for the blog tour, you don’t want to miss the give aways!
