Deadly to Love Guest Post by Mia Hoddell
When I am writing I tend to listen to instrumental music as lyrics distract me, meaning I accidentally type the odd word here or there. Most of the music I listen to is from film scores and I find this fits well with certain atmospheres and aids me in writing, especially the action sequences. Here is a list of the top 20 instrumental pieces I listened to while I wrote Deadly to Love, however there were hundreds of songs I used depending on what section I was writing.
1. Rue's Farewell – James Newton Howard (Banda Sonora de The Hunger Games)
2. Statues – Alexandre Desplat (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II)
3. Dumbledore's Farewell – Alexandre Desplat (Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince)
4. I Giorni – Ludovico Einaudi (Island Essentials Einaudi)
5. Le Onde – Ludovico Einaudi (Island Essentials Einaudi) ~ actually I love this whole album, it’s so beautiful!
6. At Wit's End – Hans Zimmer (Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End)
7. Infinite White – Steve Jablonsky (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen OST)
8. I Rise, You Fall – Steve Jablonsky (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen OST)
9. Lost Signal – Steve Jablonsky (Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon)
10. No Prisoners, Only Trophies – Steve Jablonsky (Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon)
11. There Is No Plan – Steve Jablonsky (Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon) ~ Most of the soundtracks from these movies were brilliant to listen to though.
12. Memorial – Bring Me The Horizon
13. Arrival of the Birds – The Cinematic Orchestra
14. Time – Hans Zimmer (Inception)
15. Into Dust – Mazzy Star ~ Not totally instrumental but love the music
16. Lost In Timeless Horizons – Nyctalgia
17. Mira – Nyctalgia
18. Time Changed Everything – Nyctalgia ~ Love all of this work, glad I found them on YouTube
19. Future OST - MAX Payne 3
20. The Child in Us – Enigma ~Again, not totally instrumental but because it’s sung in another language I couldn’t sing along to it.

There is a love that is so dangerous, so powerful, so intoxicating that it embraces your heart and smothers your mind until it leaves you defenceless.

However behind the allure was hidden a deadly secret – a secret that threatened her fragile life... But secrets best left unsaid never remain hidden forever. When Kai reveals his true identity, she is exposed to a frightening world she had no idea existed. Controlled by powerful Elemental forces her life is placed in mortal danger.
Unbeknown to them, their lives have been entwined from the beginning and it leads her to discover an even greater secret about who she really is. As the pieces begin to unravel and death becomes a reality, Serena is forced to decide what is more important...her love or life.
Mia Hoddell lives in the UK with her family and two cats. She spends most of her time writing or reading and her preferred genre is Young Adult, Paranormal Romance. Before 2009, Mia wouldn't even pick up a book and was more interested in sports. However she finally found some novels that captured her interest and developed a love of both reading and writing. Mia began with poems and after getting two published in separate anthologies she moved on to short stories. Although she enjoyed this, Mia found she had too much to tell with too little space, so later on she created her first series The Wanderer Trilogy and from there other ideas have emerged which she hopes to turn into novels as well. Elemental Killers is her second series and book two will be out soon.
