I am delighted to introduce JD Sharpe to The Mile Long Bookshelf! She is here today to talk about her new book Oliver Twisted, and the music she listened to while writing it. Have a listen to some of the links! :)
Thanks so much for having me on your blog! I am going to share today some of the music I listened to whilst writing Oliver Twisted. I would say that the list broadly falls into two camps, folksy and hip hop but there is an Eighties vein in there as well! I think that’s because the book has distinct moods and I found myself needing different types of stimulus at different points.
I NEED music to write. Some people find music distracting while working but I couldn’t sit down to write for hours on end without it. When the going is tough, when you are up against the wall, music can push you through. So here are some of the songs I listened to on Spotify while writing Oliver Twisted. I’ve include some you tube videos as well. Enjoy…
I love this Austin Powers version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QhCHcyJh-I
Thanks JD! It's been a pleasure to have you on the blog. Tomorrow you will see her at Daisy Chain Book Reviews.
