Guest Blog and Giveaway by Crista McHugh

ONE LUCKY COMMENTER WINS: Copy of A SOUL FOR CHAOS (print or ebook winner’s choice open internationally) and $10 iTunes gift card

Now to Welcome Crista!


Thank you for inviting me back to your blog, Aubrie!

The last time I was here, I spoke a little about using music to plot. I mentioned that I tend to focus more on the lyrics than the melody and how it applies to the scene or characters. Since then, I’ve been giving a ton of thought about the idea of a playlist to go along with certain scenes from my latest release, A Soul For Chaos. While I’m still not able to come up with a chapter-by-chapter playlist like some authors can, I can definitely give you some songs that capture the feel of the book. 

“Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men
“The Pretender” by Foo Fighters
“Home” by Phillip Phillips
“Know Your Enemy” by Green Day
“I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt
“Madness” by Muse
“A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

I hope this inspires you to check out the first three chapters on my website.

One of the issues dealt with in this book is unrequited love and healing the heartbreak that comes with it. What songs do you think of when trying to sooth a broken heart?

Book Description:
Book 2 of the Soulbearer Trilogy
Life is dull without a little Chaos.
Trouble is more than just a nickname for Arden Soulbearer. It seems to follow her wherever she goes. And no one knows this better than her protector, Devarius Tel’Brien.
Dev thought that by moving Arden to Gravaria so she could learn how to control Loku, the chaos god whose soul inhabits her body, life would be simpler. Wrong. Not only is he continually torn between his duty and his growing feelings for the Soulbearer, but he also has to contend with the rival prince who wishes to claim her heart. Adding to his problems, a group of powerful mages have banded together to rid the world of the disembodied chaos god once and for all. Of course, that means they have to destroy Arden in the process.


About the Author:
Growing up in small town Alabama, Crista relied on story-telling as a natural way for her to pass the time and keep her two younger sisters entertained. Of course, that also means she’s inclined to suffer some of the same maladies that plague many southern writers like overuse of simile and metaphor, exaggeration, melodramatic writing style, and the ever-popular long-winded sentence.
She currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and two children, maintaining her alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends.
Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she’s had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant.
And she’s also a recovering LARPer. (She blames it on her crazy college days)

There are several songs that go with unrequited love. I Can't make you Love by Bonnie Rait is the only I can think of.
