Welcome to Amy Jones Young Adult Fantasy Fiction and the thirty - second post in the YA Indie Carnival. The carnival is designed for authors, readers and reviewers of YA Indie books. Each Friday this team of YA Indies will post on a common theme.

It this week's post theme we are discussing music play lists for our books. 
Authors are inspired to write stories in many different ways. They may have had a dream that made a significant impact on them. Maybe a picture or piece of art work inspired their work. Even ordinary every day events can trigger an idea. Poetry, movies and history are also common resources for authors but I think the most popular of motivators is music.

The music play list I am sharing with you today is for my current work in progress entitled, Wildflower.

Wildflower, Book One in the Wildflower Series 

Love can be tragic.

17th Century America:
A Shaman's daughter falls in love with an Englishman,
only her hand has been promised to a warrior.

Tears fall.
Promises are broken.
Rage is unleashed.

Souls are bound or shattered.

Present Day:Laney Stillwater dreams about a boy she has never met,
but she longs for the attention of the ever popular and gorgeous, Jordan Stone.

Time tempts change.
Destined souls awaken.
Love gets a second chance.

Souls are bound or shattered.

  1. Love your playlist, Amy. Very eclectic!
    Eternal Flame had got to be one of the best all time romantic songs, hasn't it? Perfect for your book, I'm sure!
    How about I Drove All Night? I especially love Cyndi Lauper's version.
