Tour: Reflections by Susan Griscom / Regan Walsh (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to author, Susan Griscom, who is joining us today as Regan Walsh with her new release of, Reflections!


People always ask what music I listen to while writing. Well, actually, I never listen to music while I write. I just can’t. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t get inspiration from songs. In fact, a good portion of Reflections is based on songs I listened to during the months it took to write Reflections. I don’t listen while I’m sitting at my computer, but I listen while driving or walking or the dreaded, cleaning the house, which I have to say is easier done with my iPod stuck in my ears.

A lot of the story in Reflections revolves around the band Gerry’s friend form known as The Wave Runners, so it only seemed fair to actually write in a scene with them performing. Here are some of the songs from their opening night performance,

I’ve included the video clip of the performance by the actual artist.

Aiden performs
ACDC’s, You Shook Me All Night Long
AC/DC You shook me all night long, live Live At Donington HQ

Aiden also sings
Just the Way You Are, Bruno Mars. Here is a video of Bruno Mars performing in the studio


Adele’s soft melody, Make You Feel My Love
Careen Faraday performs. Everyone is stunned at her beautiful voice, considering she’s not the most pleasant person to be around.
Make you Feel My Love: Adele’s live performance dedicated this song to the late great Amy Winehouse.

No one sings this song in the book, but it was a huge inspiration for me while writing Reflections. Enjoy.
Don’t you Remember – Adele


Lyrics:
When Will I see you again.
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said
No final kiss toseal any sins
I had no Idea of the state we were in
I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness,
And a wandering eye,
And a heaviness in my head
But don’t you remember?
Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before,
Baby, please remember me once more.
When was the last time you thought of me?
Or have you completely erased me from your memory?
I often think about where I went wrong
The more I do, the less I know
But I know a fickle heart, and bitterness,
And a wondering eye,
And a heaviness in my head
But don’t you remember?
Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before,
Baby, please remember me once more.
I gave you the space so you could breathe,
I kept my distance so you would be free
In hope that you’d find the missing piece,
To bring you back to me.
Why don’t you remember?
Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more.
When will I see again?

Thank you, Crystal, for having me on your blog today.

Alicia said...

This book looks really good. I can completely understand not wanting to have music on while actually writing. I used to like listening to music while writing (of course I'm talking papers/briefs), but now I can't stand it. I will take short breaks and blast music so that I can get up and burn some of the antsy-ness off.

Thanks for having the giveaway!
