It’s about the music…

Music plays a big part of my writing. I love listening to certain songs over and over while writing. So, when it came to getting songs gathered up for Violet Midnight, I was excited. Some of these are pretty different but really paint the picture well. Here’s the playlist from YouTube:   ~~~~~ I’m super excited to have a book signing tomorrow where the special music is being provided by Colton Avery. He’s a really talented singer.
