If there was ever a song for Jasmine and Sean, this would be it. Once you read their “astronerd” scene together, you’ll understand why.
Whenever Jasmine is alone, she belts the hell out of this song.
Jasmine and Veta love this band – it makes them want to do a side project together.
Bryn had this album on repeat to keep himself awake while driving.
Whenever Jasmine thinks about Sean… Or maybe it’s whenever Sean thinks of Jasmine. Any guesses?
This is the mood C-Side creates when they’re at their best… Keep Shelly in Athens is in big rotation on Jasmine’s playlist.
Veta has this song and album on repeat throughout the tour – it’s feel good music to her.
Felix is a huge The New Division fan – and he’s super excited about the new album.
Jasmine listened to this a lot post-Jeremy.
This one got a lot of plays on Sean’s tour playlist.
About halfway through the tour, they were playing this song a LOT in the van.
Ah, Skinny Puppy. The one band everyone in C-Side loves.

I’ve been getting a lot of email and questions about ENCORE. Some of you are downright mad about the delay. I completely understand and I apologize….it has been a LONG time. I went through a lot of personal life turmoil and it took me forever to finish the book. But here’s the good news: ENCORE is finished (and I’m so happy with how it turned out) and it’s waiting to be released by my publisher. My publisher tells me the plan is for it to be released this fall! This is a digital only release, but once it’s out I WILL SCREAM IT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS. Seriously, I will!
In other news, I’m working on a book that is very near and dear to my heart. It’s my special snowflake book, what can I say. I’ve talked about it before. But it’s set in Vegas. It’s he said, she said. It’s gritty, raw, and complicated. It’s about so many things – being poor, not being poor, being bi and dealing with the stereotypes others put on you, being a girl, being a boy, struggling with liking your body, keeping everything inside, and letting the “monster” out. And, of course, it involves music. I’ll share the title with you – SIN CITY REJECTS.
Thank you to everyone who writes me and is still patiently waiting for more books. I’m still writing them – I promise 🙂
Lastly, I have a new website for my branding, design, video, and photography services. If you’re in need of those services, check out my portfolio!

As you may or may not have noticed, I’m a musician (I’m super subtle about it, I know). I’ve always wanted to write a few songs to go with my books, but life got in the way…or I was knee deep in my next book….or something kept me from doing it.
Well, that’s going to change, because I need to write music as much as I need to write books. It’s a huge outlet for me (one I very much need after the year I’ve had), and I’ve been feeling pretty empty without it.
So, you’re getting original music to go with The Foxglove Killings…starting with this teaser. This is the music in The Foxglove Killings trailer—which will be coming out very soon! Can’t wait to share that with you.
This is actually a short version of a longer song I plan to release on Sept 1st (release date for The Foxglove Killings). So, if you like what you hear, stay tuned….
Until then—free download!
