Playlist for Darkness Taunts

MusicI know some people are interested in what music an author plays to help inspire them while writing a novel.  For anyone who wants to know which songs I’ve been listening to as I make my way through Darkness Taunts, the list is below.  It’s a rather eclectic mix of genres because I like a little of everything.

Do keep in mind that not all of them relate to the story, but help set a tone for a scene.  A few have key lines that resonate with me while the song itself doesn’t actually fit.  Some do not pertain to the main character, Melena, but to other characters and their side stories.

They are in no particular order and all song titles are linked to iTunes:

1) Savin’ Me by Nickelback

Favorite lines-

Heaven’s gates won’t open up for me, with these broken wings I’m fallin’
