Black, White and Read Presents: Music to Write by, My Soundtrack for The Red Road by Jenni Wiltz

The Red Road

 

 

Music to Write By: My Soundtrack for The Red Road
If your life had a soundtrack, what song would it start with? What song captures your first kiss, the day realized your parents were only human, or the day someone close to you almost lost their life?
For my latest book, The Red Road, I spent a lot of time picking the songs for its playlist. I knew the story would go to some dark places that, in real life, I’d never want to think about. I figured that if I listened to a song that captured the feeling I wanted, I’d have an easier time writing those emotional scenes. As I wrote, my playlist grew to 64 songs. Check it out on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDm6j4gpJDvpqjLMCpdP-CDKTR8YDw2R7.

Black, White and Read Presents a Review of The Red Road by Jenni Wiltz with Giveaway

The Red Road
The Red Road by Jenni Wiltz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am having a hard time writing this review without spoilers but I am going to try very hard to accomplish just that. Be warned, I may not succeed so proceed with reading at your own risk.

Gang wars are real and frightening and something people who don’t have to live with it prefer not to think about. I am glad to see a young adult novel that faces something real for once. There tends to be a school of thought that wants to shield young people from this kind of reality. Ms. Wiltz is not among them.

Black, White and Read Presents: Barbara Pietron, YA Author – An Interview and Awesome Giveaway

BP BannerI have the pleasure of hosting on a blog tour for this exciting YA author. In case you don’t know who Barbara Pietron is:

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved books. Many of my most vivid memories are book-related; like the thrill of my first library card, being blown away by Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot when I was thirteen, riding my bike to the library until I finally got a car, and the agony of waiting for semester break in college to read a novel (because if I started a book, my homework suffered!). I also like listening to alternative rock, sewing, gardening, and camping. I’m a mom, a cancer survivor, and a former automotive corporate employee, now working in a library.
