In the meantime, I thought this might be fun for those of you who have followed the book's progress . . . .
As I near the finish line, I present to you my Ugly As Sin "playlist". These are either:
A) songs I listened to repeatedly as I wrote my lil' tale of Southern-fried noir . . . these are the tracks that became in my mind a sort of unofficial "soundtrack" for the story, influencing the mood, pacing, tone, etc.
B) they are directly mentioned in the manuscript itself . . . a few of these will stick out like the proverbial sore thumb, but they deserve to be here because they are "heard" in the novel at some point (i.e. thumpin' during the strip-club scene, or when my protagonist decides a local drug-dealer called Coko Puff would look great with a tire iron upside his head :)
More soon! Enjoy, my friends, and thanks for reading/listening . . . .
