Playlist for An Ember in the Ashes: Villains, Troublemakers and Redheads

It’s the final playlist! If you’ve stuck with me so far, THANK YOU. If this is the first playlist you’re seeing, then here’s the deal:  Without music, I could never have written EMBER. And without playlists, I could never have accessed my characters’ psyches. So far I have put up playlists for Laia, Elias and Helene. The last playlist includes baddies like The Commandant, Marcus and the Nightbringer, as well as other characters like Keenan ...

Full Playlist for An Ember in the Ashes: Helene

  Last week, I put up the playlists for Elias Veturius and Laia. As I said then, without music, I could never have written the book. And without playlists, I could never have accessed my characters’ psyches. The full playlist (more than 200 songs) has been revealed through a series of character-based posts. Today is Day 3: Helene Aquilla Helene is a Martial soldier and Mask who has been training at Blackcliff Military Academy for 14 ...

Full Playlist for An Ember in the Ashes: Laia

  Yesterday, I put up the full playlist for Elias Veturius, one of the characters from An Ember in the Ashes. As I said then, without music, I could never have written the book.

Today is Day 2: Laia Laia is a Scholar girl living under the ...

When I can’t sleep and I have an iTunes gift card

Baa Mix 83: Summer 2015 I couldn’t sleep last night, so then this happened. No hip-hop on this one, I’m sad to say, but lots of very scrumptious indie, and, of course, a little Taylor on the side. I might have added some commentary this time. Every mix has one song you MUST LISTEN TO. This time it’s This Wild Life’s cover of “Sleepwalking,” which is phenomenal, esp. if you know and love the original. Fav line from The ...

April is Crazy Mix

A conversation that took place in my head last night:   Responsible Baa: Do your work, Sabaa. Devil Baa: Nooo, put up a new mix, you’ve been listening to the same crap for three months. BORING. BORED. I’M BORED. RB: Don’t be stupid! You’ll never finish your work if you listen to Devil Baa. She never accomplishes anything. Ignore her and do your work. DB: MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC— RB: NO. Be strong, Sabaa. Ignore her. ...
