Once again we’re really digging deep because Surrender was finished in 2009, then rewritten once in 2010, and again in 2011 and was then edited a lot and in 2012 I added some deleted scenes, illustrations, a map, and an alternate ending (for fun)
1. Caught Myself - Paramore
I listened to this song on repeat while finishing the first draft of the last part of Surrender. I’m always about the lyrics and the cadence of a song, this one had what I needed to finish the book.
2. Setting Sun - Eskimo Joe
Again, I was looking for songs at the time that could help me plow into the emotions of my characters. So this song was great for that.
3. My Number - Tegan and Sara
All time favorite Indie Rock Duo. I love their older stuff because of how raw and original it was.
4. Satellite Heart - Anya Marina
I suppose the whole Twilight Soundtrack was being played around this time but the songs on this soundtrack were amazing because of the Indie Rock quality to them and the fact that the movie was considered an Indie Film so really just a great time for this to come out for me.
5. Holy Toledo - Crystal Bowersox
I loved this girl when she was on American Idol because damn could she sing. So of course I downloaded her songs and made constant patronage to them while writing.
