Sometimes I'll also hear a lyric that sparks a story idea, which is what happened with Cold Moon Rising (Rosemary by Deftones). Other songs gave me character insight into my heroine for Highland Moon Rising (Buddha For Mary by 30 Seconds to Mars). That last song is pretty dark, which fit well with the tone of the book.(less)

Topics Mentioning This Author

Karen Chance
“Pritkin kissed like he did everything else, straightforward, accepting no prisoners and with an intensity that left me breathless. It was hot and hard and desperate, like he was starving for it, and I opened my mouth and took it, because, God.”
Karen Chance, Embrace the Night

Patricia Briggs
“Civilization is vastly overrated.”
Patricia Briggs, On the Prowl

Patricia Briggs
“MS. THOMPSON, it said in heavy block letters, PLEASE KEEP YOUR FELINE OFF MY PROPERTY. IF I SEE IT AGAIN, I WILL EAT IT.”
Patricia Briggs, Moon Called

Karen Chance
“And I just couldn't take it anymore. I closed the distance between us, slammed him back against the chair and kissed him, holding his head still with both my hands buried in that stupid, stupid hair. I half expected more resistance, because Pritkin had never met an argument he didn't like. So it was a shock when he ran his hands down my sides, cupped my hips and slid us both to the floor.
"I'm going straight to hell for this," he muttered.
"At least you'll know a lot of people," I said breathlessly. ”
Karen Chance, Curse the Dawn

Ilona Andrews
“Curran looked back at me. "Why is it you always attract creeps?"

"You tell me." Ha! Walked right into that one, yes, he did.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Strikes
