Playlist: Music to read the Sorrows’ Chronicles by

Here’s the playlist that I often listen to while writing the Sorrows Chronicles. I wanted to share this bit of inspiration with you so you can dance along with the figments and me. This playlist will be updated periodically, most likely. I’ll also include it in my next #urbanfantasy books. 🙂

  • So far: 66 Songs, 293 Minutes. Songs are all available on iTunes.
  • I picked some of these songs because they reminded me of particular events or characters in the stories. Others I just picked out a mood or theme. Genres include classical-type movie soundtrack music, trance, dance, electronica, goth, and pop. You don’t have to listen to them in this order, but it won’t hurt if you do. J
  • Oh yes. There may be mild spoilers in here.
