When the Rain Falls – The Playlist

You only have to go so far in exploring this website to realize there are many things which inspire our creativity as writers, and music has always been a large part of that. So, it wasn’t long after starting the rewrites of When the Rain Falls when Sarah suggested to Ashley the idea of creating a playlist centered around the Black Skies series. We began noting down the songs we love, songs which we felt reflected our characters and the events of the book. What started out as something for ‘just a bit of fun’ morphed into a chapter by chapter playlist, and is now a large part of our process as writers.

Without further ado, we can now reveal to you the first of these playlists; When the Rain Falls. Keep an eye out for the novel which is releasing this October!
