After the Golden Age is out today!
April 12, 2011
It’s here! It’s finally here!
I’ve mentioned before that while the Kitty novels have actual playlists, most of my other books have a single song or type of music that I associate with it. After the Golden Age has a song. Here’s how it happened: I’d set the book aside for quite a long time — months, I think — in order to work on something else. Probably Kitty Goes to Washington. I was about to start working on it again. I was definitely thinking about it a whole lot, and a little bit daunted about diving in after the long break. Then, driving home late at night, Men at Work’s “Overkill” came on the radio. And it was Celia’s song. I was right there, in her head, with her frustration in trying to escape her past, and her inability to do so. After that, I was able to jump right back in and keep writing.
I hope y’all like this one.
