Today we have an awesome guest post from Erin McCarthy. She's talking about the playlist for her new adult novel True, which is available now! Check out the synopsis:
“When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.
Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…
Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost…”
The True Playlist by Erin McCarthy:Erin McCarthy, author of the New Adult novel True, shares her playlist for her newest novel.
I have Rory music and Tyler music that I listened to while writing… they are totally different in terms of sound.
Rory is into indie music and more folksy stuff:
“I Will Wait” by Mumford and Sons
“Love, Love, Love” by Of Monsters and Men
“Ho Hey” by The Lumineers
“Sunshine Highway” by Dropkick Murphys
“Merry Go ‘Round” by Kasey Musgraves
“Home” by Phillip Phillips
“Born to Die” by Lana Del Rey
Tyler is old school metal and rock:
“Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica
“Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne
“Snuff” by Slipknot
“Down with the Sickness” by Disturbed
“Poison” by Alice Cooper
“Send the Pain Below” by Chevelle
“Symphony of Destruction” by Iron Maiden
“Memory” by Sevendust
And though he would never admit it even under torture, I have it in my head that when
Tyler thinks about Rory, “Little Things” by One Direction pops into his head. :)
