A lot of writers listen to a particular set of songs while writing a specific book. It helps to set the mood while writing and can sometimes influence a little of what’s going on.
With Marianne de Pierres’ new book Peacemaker out soon, I asked her to share the playlist she listened to while writing.
The soundtracks that authors compile while writing novels are often quite revealing: better, at times, than an interview. Thanks to Spotify, you can now hear PEACEMAKER soundtrack in all its quaint glory. My dad would approve!
Wild, Wild West – The Escape Club
Riders on the Storm – The Doors
Timber – Pitbull/Kesha
Rawhide – Frankie Laine
Harlan County Line – Dane Alvin
Bad Things – Jace Everett
Saving Grace – Everlast
They Call the Wind Mariah – Paint Your Wagon
There’s a Coach Coming In – Paint Your Wagon
Counting Stars – OneRepublic
Royals – Lorde
Sitting on the Dock of the Bay – Otis Redding
- Peacemaker will be released as an e-book on 29 April 2014. Check out Angry Robot for links and the print book release dates!
