I can’t write without music, and it seems I have a few songs I play repeatedly for each WIP. I like to keep track, just for my own amusement, but figured you might find it interesting to know what music inspired each book. So, here you go. The songs played most often as I write. Some of these are books already published, while many are books that are still under construction.

Also, don’t judge me. πŸ˜‰
