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.

And the Winners are. . .


The Points Matters contest had an amazing turn-out. I counted almost a thousand total tweets for the contest.  But like all good things it came to an end last night at midnight with a few tweets sliding in at the last minute.

That being said I’d like to announce the winners.

  • In 3rd Place were @uniquelymoi and @mrsteemae_books. Congratulations. Your prizes are a Swag package including a personalized poster, bookmark and postcard.

A Party is Still a Party Wherever it is.


Everyone loves throwing a party and being a host/hostess; the attention to details and the appreciation with ooh and ahhs. However, no one loves the aftermath, the clean up, the discerning of trash or keepsakes, the broken collectibles from the guy with a lamp shade on his head or the chasing stragglers out of your front yard.

Luckily for me, my amazon free party was completely virtual. I want to thank everyone who shared my links on facebook and twitter; and I want to thank those who clicked on those links and downloaded nearly 3000 copies of my novels. You don’t know what it means to me to know that my books have reached so many people because of this promotion. If you liked what you’ve read then stay tuned, this year promises to be full of more promotions, giveaways and new endeavors for myself and Entwined Publishing. We are growing and creating. It is an exciting time to be in the publishing industry.

FYI.

I still have the #Pointsmatter #Happybdayentwined contest continuing on here, Twitter and Youtube until February 13, 2012. If you haven’t read the rules to it, you can find them on my blog post Because Points Matter. If you are already participating, you rock and blow me away with your attention to details. It’s definitely turning into a close tight race! Good luck to all my participants, is it wrong to say that I find myself rooting for all of you? I do.

That said, I can’t even begin to express how blessed I feel and amazed I am at all of those around me.

Sincerely,

-Mia
