Catherine Peace stopped by my blog to celebrate the release of This Time Next Year and to share some music with us.
Take it away, Cate...
I am one of those people who absolutely must listen to music when I write. I depend on it a lot for inspiration, for help focusing, and to help me get in the mood. Sometimes, it’s a song for a scene, sometimes a group of songs for an emotion. But typically, I have Spotify going and earphones in.
Okay, so this one isn’t folk, but it’s a beautiful song that encapsulates Kiernan and Moira’s relationship.
I Will Wait – Mumford and Sons
I straight up love this song. To pieces. And again, it’s appropriate.
House by the Sea – Iron and Wine
This one’s just great. I listened to it on repeat through edits. I love the rhythm and the feel.
Smoke – Ben Folds Five
I might have a small obsession with this song in general…and it was perfect to write those more somber moments to.
Swoon – Chemical Brothers
Also not folk. Not anywhere near folk. But I jammed a lot during edits. The beat is great and actually helped me concentrate big time.
Thanks to Cate for stopping by my blog and sharing her inspirational music with us! And congratulations to her on the release of This Time Next Year.
Vampire Kiernan Shaw has never forgotten the night twenty years ago when he’d been forced to stand by while another vampire killed a six-year-old girl’s parents in front of her. He’s spent the better part of the last two decades watching over her, protecting her and hoping for an opportunity to make amends one day.
Ever since surviving the vampire attack that killed her parents, Moira Curran has dealt with the resulting nightmares and abandonment issues the only way she could—by throwing herself into her biochemistry career, preferring a life of a hermit in her lab to facing the reality of her lonely life.
Madame Eve brings them back together for one fateful night. An immediate bond of sizzling chemistry and respect forms, but can it heal her fears and his guilt?
