Today we have Lisa Kessler discussing how music impacted the writing of her new book, Ice Moon. We hope you enjoy her music selections and be sure and pick up your copy of Ice Moon today!
Thanks for having me on the EverAfter Romance blog!
Music is a huge inspiration for me when I write. I usually start building the playlist for a new book before I even start writing. The music and the songs really help me to keep the tone of the story even and different songs can bring out different characters and help me connect with them.
For my new release, Ice Moon, I had a playlist with 64 songs! I won’t list them all here, but let me give you a few highlights.
You by Fisher – Gorgeous song! And my heroine, Taryn, is a single Mom so this one helped me pull that protective Mom instinct out.
