Chasin’ Dreamz Playlist

Every book I write has a playlist that I listen to almost exclusively while I’m writing. I spend almost as much time building this playlist as I do plotting the book and writing the character sketches. It’s that important because without the music to inspire me, nothing would ever get written. This is one of my favorite playlists so far…#2 behind the Untitled playlist…so I thought I’d share.
