Writing Playlist: When the Truth Unravels

January 14, 2019

I’m excited to host debut author RuthAnne Snow on the blog today! Her first novel, When the Truth Unravels, released last week and today RuthAnne is sharing with us the playlist she listened during the various stages of writing it!

Thanks for having me on your blog to talk about WHEN THE TRUTH UNRAVELS! When Jordan asked me to share my playlist, I was both excited and intimidated. Excited because I love music, intimidated because my musical tastes can be pretty hit-or-miss. There’s a lot of guilty pleasure on my iTunes, is all I am saying. (For a long, long time my most played song was “See You Again” from Miley Cyrus. Like, pre-BangerzHannah Montana soundtrack Miley Cyrus.)

So with all those caveats, here are some of the songs that were on perma-repeat while I was drafting, revising, and editing WHEN THE TRUTH UNRAVELS and a little bit about what each one means to me:

  1. “Umbrella” by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z and “We Got The World” by Icona Pop. It’s a friendship book, it needs a friendship playlist. Followed by …
  2. “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Minaj and “Blow” by Kesha. The girls need some getting ready for prom songs before heading to a pre-party that three of them never expected to be invited to.
  3. “Set the Fire to the Third Bar” by Snow Patrol. This song feels like the moment that Jenna, Rosie, and Ket realize that Elin has left the prom without telling them where she is going.
  4. “Follow” by Crystal Fighters, “Haunted” by Taylor Swift, and “Demons” by The National. Searching for Elin songs/Elin flashback songs.
  5. “Lovin, Touchin, Squeezin” by Journey. I know this song is actually about finding out your girlfriend is cheating on you, but to my ears it kind of sounds like the perfect kinda-sexy, kinda-innocent song that goes along with a first make out in a certain Subaru.
  6. “Angel of Small Death and the Codeine Scene” by Hozier. Ket confronts __________ (spoilers, sorry!)
  7. “Ends of the Earth” by Lord Huron and “You Got Me” by Ingrid Michaelson featuring Storyman. The end.

If you want to listen to the full playlist, you can find it here:

I recommend shuffle mode, since I definitely have no claim at being a skilled music arranger.

Thanks again for having me on THE HEART OF A BOOK BLOGGER!

About the Book

Demon hunter Jack Grenard’s life changed three years ago when his wife was brutally murdered by the very demons he’d been hunting. At the urging of his partner Cam Macarro, he’s starting a new life in Atlanta, hoping he’ll find the man he used to be. But on a routine hunt, they come across a new type of demon–one that saves instead of kills.

Meanwhile, demons across Atlanta are preparing for the quadrennial uprising of their Underworld brethren. Worse yet, there’s a rumor the so-called king of the demons, Bael, will appear for the first time in over a century. Jack and Cam must uncover the truth about the mystery woman before all hell–literally–breaks loose.

Resurgence is the first in a new Urban Fantasy trilogy from S. Usher Evans, author of the Madion War Trilogy, Razia, and Lexie Carrigan Chronicles. It is available for eBook exclusively in Kindle Unlimited, and in paperback and hardcover.
