The January Vlog.


I vlogged today. It’s the first one of 2013. I’m under the weather, so I feel blah, but I had the time so I went ahead and did it.

So……………..

What do you think the big announcements are?

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.

Thanks for following my blog tour. I’m giving away a e-book and iTunes gift card. Enter below for your chance to win.
