Two Steps from Hell

As I have mentioned before, I like to listen to instrumental music as I write.  Well, I discovered Two Steps from Hell, a music company that writes a great deal of music that we hear in movie trailers.  They have several albums out, but I just purchased Sky World on iTunes, as it has a science fiction feel and I want to listen to it while I write 82 Eridani.

Blood Trade Soundtrack

I usually don’t listen to music with lyrics when I’m trying to write, though I listen to instrumentals.  I do listen to songs when I’m thinking about plots and ideas though and there are a few songs that remind me of events in stories, and that I think would make great soundtracks to movie versions of my books.  Here is what might be included in a Blood Trade Movie.
