I thought I would go ahead and post the playlist for Far from Heaven while it’s fresh in my mind. Once I create the book page, I’ll move it there.
WOW. I must say, these songs really saved me while I was writing this book, and at least one of them presented itself almost…supernaturally. “Walk Away” by 5FDP is a song I’d heard before and dismissed, for the most part, though I really love the band. But while I was struggling with a particularly intense scene between Ash and Madeleine, it came up in my playlist, and the entire first verse just took my breath away. It was so fitting, I almost cried. It’s definitely *their* song.
It’s moments like that I live for and it’s the reason I will always write to music. “Stargazer” by Rainbow is so epic it’s practically a playlist of its own. I had it on repeat quite a bit, especially toward the end (RIP, Ronnie James Dio. Your voice was inhuman).
Anyway, I’m sure it’ll all make much more sense once the book is out, but without further ado, behold my own personal soundtrack to Far from Heaven:
“Walk Away” by Five Finger Death Punch
“Say You’ll Haunt Me” by Stone Sour
“Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold
“Stargazer” by Rainbow
“Help I’m Alive” by Metric
“Lights Out” by Breaking Benjamin
“All I Ever Wanted” by Otto’s Daughter
“A Drowning” by How to Destroy Angels
“Turn So Cold” by Drowning Pool
“You’ve Seen the Butcher” by Deftones
“Goodnight” by The Birthday Massacre
“Collapsing” by Demon Hunter
“Seen It All” by Korn
Enjoy! While I’m here, I’d also just like to say THANK YOU! At the moment, Unleashed is selling like gangbusters in the Kindle store (#199 as of 9:00 a.m.). I am amazed and truly humbled that so many are taking a chance on my little debut effort. I remember looking at those bestseller charts long ago and wishing I could be on them. And there I am! So, thank you, thank you, thank you!
