Playlists and finding inspiration in music.
Firstly can I say hi to the wonderful people at Fang-Tastic books. It’s a pleasure to be on your blog today and to kick off my tour with Bewitching Book Tours.
I would love to share with you the inspiration of music in my writing. Many authors these days have playlists. Something that plays when you’re writing, I know I have MANY playlists; I even have a folder on my laptop just for songs that I listen to when I write.
The songs can be very different in their styles and vary from classical right through to heavy metal. However each one inspires me differently. I have songs for each of my characters, for different locations and for the different moods in my work.
I have always been very musical myself, from fronting a band when I was 18 (we even have our own CD!) to now when I still sing and often toy with the idea of auditioning for one of the very many talent shows that are on the TV. I think this helps when I set up a playlists for my current works.
Here is a selection from my playlist for Dreams Come True…
· Sam’s theme - Be Like That (3 Doors Down) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHpMtWtgUvc
· Tyler’s theme - I Wasn’t Prepared For You (Eisley) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAfsHPqsX2E
· Ally’s theme - This Fire Burns (Killswitch Engage) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xlm4z7LFPy4
· Equinox theme - Where Is My Mind (Yoav feat. Emily Browning) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZEw2khWfg0&feature=fvst
· Music for Ally’s home - The Only Hope For Me Is You (My Chemical Romance) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOarhuKrDq8
· Sam & Tyler - Teenage Dream (Katie Perry) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98WtmW-lfeE&ob=av3e
· Tyler & Ally - Against All Odds (Phil Collins) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWSQS06i7-w
As you can see the music varies greatly. However the theme of love and hope is found in many of the songs. Why not check them out and see if they bring a different meaning to you.
I would also like to offer one reader a PDF copy of Dreams Come True.
Let me know what you think of the above playlist, what song is your favourite and email Kate from http://read2review.com on email@example.com as she is currently handling all my promotions.

About Harrie Brooks:
I was born 30 years ago in England. I started writing when I was around 10, only short stories for English but I was told by many teachers I had a skill. I worked hard on this from then and took many routes before ending with the Equinox series you now hold the start to in your “hands”.
Tyler, Sam and Reese have been with me for a while and now I want to give their stories the light they need. I hope you enjoy them and read the further stories that will be coming soon.
