The Fourth Piece #BlogTour by E. Ardell @E_Ardell


Haha, most people run the other way when I’m about to turn on some music. You can’t guess what I’m going to play. Could be Disney, could be metalcore or bubblegum pop. When I write, though, I usually listen to particular genres of music.

When I’m writing new sections, not editing, I need music with no words to distract me. I have go to soundtracks, like:

The Lord of the Rings Soundtracks (the scores)
Harry Potter Soundtracks (the scores)
The Craft Soundtrack (the score)
Apocalyptica (the instrumentals)
Enya
The Mists of Avalon Soundtrack
The Titanic Soundtrack
Troy Soundtrack 
Ever After Soundtrack
Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Vivaldi 
Or I even put it on the Soundscape Channel on Comcast for wordless tranquility music

When I’m editing, I find myself listening to:
30 Seconds to Mars
Fall Out Boy
My Chemical Romance
Backstreet Boys (Yeah, I said it :D )
Britney Spears (Oops, I said it again :D )
KPOP (anything really, but I favor songs that come from K-Dramas I’ve been watching lately)
JPOP (I favor songs from Inuyasha)
Shakira, Laundry Service
Bruno Mars
Shinedown
3 Doors Down
3 Days Grace
Nickelback
Beauty and the Beast
Hercules
Mulan
Aladdin
Lion King (the movie and musical)
The Little Mermaid
A Goofy Movie
Wicked
Into the Woods (the original soundtrack)

My neighbors hate me because I’ll play all of that random loops all day and night until I’m done with what I’m working on. The type of music, shifts my mid into different modes. If it’s wordless, I’m ready to sit down and write new stuff. If it’s got a thumping beat and words I know (I’ll even pretend to know the words to the KPOP and JPOP—and I do know the words to some of it, lol) I’m ready to dance around and do edits.

Summary from Goodreads:

Admitting what you are will end everything you know. Embracing who you are will start a war...

Life is great when you’re good-looking and popular…so long as no one knows you’re a vulatto. Being half-alien gets you labeled “loser” quicker than being a full vader. So it’s a good thing Devon, Lyle, and Lawrence can easily pass for human—until the night of the party. Nothing kills a good time faster than three brothers sharing a psychic vision of a fourth brother who’s off-world and going to die unless they do something. But when your brother’s emergency happens off-planet, calling 9-1-1 really isn’t an option.

In their attempt to save a brother they barely remember, Devon, Lyle and Lawrence expose themselves to mortal danger and inherit a destiny that killed the last four guys cursed with it. In 2022, there are humans and aliens, heroes and monsters, choices and prophecies—and four brothers with the power to choose what’s left when the gods decide they’re through playing games.

Book I in the Order's Last Play series
