I don’t know about other authors, but I love music and its unique ability to create a mood in films, so when I’m writing I’ll often listen to music as part of that process. When I’m actually writing I usually have to stick to instrumental music to avoid distraction, but when I’m just trying to brainstorm or get myself immersed in a certain mood to write a scene, I try to imagine what music I would use if it were a film and I can spend hours exploring and trying to find that one song that feels just right. That being said, creating this playlist for Detour Ahead was so much fun for me, and I really hope you enjoy listening to it. If you read the book, I’d love to hear which song on this playlist you think fits the story best. Better yet, maybe you know a song that isn’t on the playlist which you think should be!
