One of the first things I do when starting a novel is create a playlist. Particularly in the Forlorn series, where music plays such a big role. The playlists develop as the novels do, and I’m often amazed at the synchonicity between the songs and the story.
The dominant artist I listened to while writing Forlorn was Thirty Seconds to Mars. Jared Leto seems always to be grappling with demons, just like Jared Lorn (interesting how similar their names are — that was NOT planned). For Forsaken, it was Thousand Foot Krutch, who do hard rock and acoustic songs with equal passion. Their album “Welcome to the Masquerade” seemed tailer made for this book.
The book trailer and the music video for the series were created by my amazing and talented daughter Sami. The song “Burn” featured in the video was written and performed by my daughter Dominique. I love being able to partner with my kids on this project!
