In Tune: writing playlists

Here is a partial list of the music I am listening to while writing the next instalment of In Tune. Note, that while many authors will post play lists of really cool music, I myself mostly listen to really dance-y pop music. Also, while these songs get me in the writing vibe for matching the feel of the story, they don’t necessarily track with what the scenes I’m writing are about… or do they?

  • Birds of Tokyo – Lanterns
  • Carly Rae Jepsen – I Really Like You
  • Concrete Blonde – Joey
  • Darren Hayes – Popular
  • David Bowie – I’m Afraid of Americans
  • Fall Out Boy – The Kids Aren’t Alright
  • Florence + the Machine – Delilah; Hiding
  • Kita Alexander – Like You Want To
  • Lana Del Rey – a lot but especially Sad Girl and The Other Woman
  • One Direction – What a Feeling (*note, this is a really adorable track where they try to sound like Fleetwood Mac)
  • The Smashing Pumpkins – 1979
  • Tori Amos – Cruel
  • Troye Sivan – Talk Me Down

Updates and website housekeeping

I’ve almost reached the end of my Christmas and New Year holiday (though not quite yet) so I thought I’d pop in to say hello to everyone before I go back to regular updates.

First, I’ve added a little more information to the site and re-jigged the menu to make things more clear and usable.

Second, The Rhinoceros Conspiracy Live is now on Scribd.

Third, a dear friend has a book out now with Less Than Three Press here – check it out now if you’re interested in lesbian fantasy novels.

I’m madly writing the next instalment of the In Tune series and I’ve got the beginnings of a novella in the works, so I hope to have something for you all to read very soon.
