What is the official Blood To Blood Music Playlist?

Official Blood To Blood Music Playlist

Official Blood To Blood Music Playlist


The official Blood To Blood Music Playlist is the iTunes list of fifty-nine songs I had on loop while writing the first three or four drafts of my young adult urban fantasy Blood To Blood.

These songs are by no means the only music playlist I listened to while writing and neither are they the only songs that inspired the writing. But this was definitely the go-to music playlist for whenever I needed background music that seemed to echo or support whatever chapter or scenes were being written at any given moment.

I’ve listed them by Number of Plays in descending order. As you can see, the artists and genres are pretty diverse. Some of the songs are associated to particular scenes,  some are just general inspiration for a particular character and some simply capture the overall tone I was aiming for.
