So, I’ve been teasing you all for quite some time about my first lone author novel, Bad Blood. Well, you’ll have to wait till next month for the actual release (not long now!) but I thought I’d take this opportunity to share with you how music helps me write and create some of the important scenes in my work.
Bad Blood is a vampires vs zombies so is choc-full of action scenes and has a very strong undertone of romance. Listening to certain songs whilst writing really helped me to speak through my main character, Britannia. Personality wise, her’s is a million miles away from my own and I found it hard to make her do what I wanted, I even had to change parts as I went along, as she grew as a person/ vampire.
Below is a play list that really spoke to me whilst writing; I used it to evoke Britannia; you’ll find links through to YouTube videos so you can listen to each track too:
