I can’t usually listen to music I know when I’m writing. Inevitably, I end up singing along and getting distracted from whatever I’m working on, so I’ve stopped trying to force it. That means I don’t usually create a playlist of music until after the first draft is done. Most often, I’ll be listening to something and one line will spark an “Oh, that reminds me of _____!” thought. This is how my book playlists get built. Slowly. Song by random song.
A note: the list below is in order based on band name, not anything book specific.
The Wicked Ones – 10 Years
Ticking Bomb – Aloe Blacc
Daniel in the Den – Bastille
Angel With a Shotgun – The Cab
Can’t Change Me – Chris Cornell
Seven Devils – Florence + The Machine
The Pretender – Foo Fighters
Wait it Out – Imogen Heap
Not Alone – Linkin Park
Wretches and Kings – Linkin Park
You Can Run, But We’ll Find You – Matchbook Romance
Youth Without Youth – Metric
Zero Sum – Nine Inch Nails
What Am I Becoming? – POP ETC
Ghost – Sir Sly

About Assassins: Nemesis
Being orphaned and almost kidnapped in the space of a week sent Blake Marks into hiding. For months, Blake tries to help the Calvers—a family of vigilante bodyguards—investigate the people behind the hit on Blake’s father, Isaac, but then the safe house is compromised. Just as hired thugs storm the house to grab Blake, Daelan Calver dives into the fight, getting them both out alive.
Hiding isn’t an option anymore, but hit squads, under-the-table deals, and international espionage? Blake has no idea how to handle any of it, not even with Daelan’s family there to play teachers. The one thing Blake knows for sure is that there are only two options: keep up with the Calvers or get out of their way.
But even with the Calvers’ help and the glimmer of a possible future with Daelan giving Blake hope, chances of survival keep shrinking. The man who ordered the hit on Isaac may be dead, but his partner is viciously cold-blooded, and her plans could change the course of history. Blake wants to finish what Isaac started, but it’s looking like someone is going to die before this is over. And that someone might be Blake.

Interesting thoughts on music, but I do get your reasoning the singing along could end up distracting you. LOL. Thanks for sharing your playlist, Erica. Also, congrats and best wishes on the release of your new book!
