Ashes Swept Playlist ~ Top Five

Lots of things inspire me when I write, but nothing inspires me more than music. The right song can help me flesh out my characters, spark plot ideas, and can even influence entire scenes. The playlist for Ashes Swept is one of my favorites so far, so I’m excited to share my five favorite songs on the playlist with you, along with some of the lyrics that inspired me.

#1 Home by Gabrielle Aplin

So when I’m ready to be bolder, and my cuts have healed with time;
comfort will rest on my shoulder, and I’ll bury my future behind.
I’ll always keep you with me. You’ll always be on my mind,
but there’s a shining in the shadows, I’ll never know unless I try.

BookBlurbGraphicIGTw

As a ministerial daughter, Synda May Ivey has a duty to her family and to all of Floridian—but she has no interest in galas, garden parties, and high-tech society life. With everything in disarray after her father’s death, marriage to her aristocratic childhood friend is the last thing she wants. After escaping to a world of simplicity in the low-tech tractlands, life couldn’t be more perfect. Silver Glen is everything she’d hoped for, and Wilken Kirby might help her forget about the noble Everton Greer. But with her overbearing stepfamily in pursuit and her true identity cloaked in deception, her two worlds may not stay separate for long. Having seen her nation through different eyes, she may find it difficult to choose freedom and love over duty.

Launch Week is Coming!

I’m happy to announce that launch week for Ashes Swept will begin one week from Friday, on September 22nd!

I’ll be sharing some fun things here (and on social media) each day leading up to launch day. The Ashes Swept cover reveal, book trailer, and selections from the AS playlist are just a few of the things I have planned. Then, on September 29th, Ashes Swept will be available for purchase, in both print and Kindle, on Amazon.com!

It’s a Bit of a Learning Curve

I’ve had my print proof of Ashes Swept in hand for eleven days. It arrived while I was reading the e-book proof, and I’ve just finished reading it. This took a little longer than anticipated thanks to time limits, but while I was reading, something really interesting happened: I found a lot I wanted to change.
