Every book has its own rhythm. Mine are driven by music: songs that inspired me, rocked me, and took me to new worlds while I was writing. These songs kept me on track, informed the story, and as you can see, helped with the theme. We're all Pretenders, in a way. Aren't we?
Here's the soundtrack for Taylor Jackson #6 - So Close the Hand of Death.
