I particularly enjoy listening to fast, upbeat, uptempo music when writing, as it seems to increase my speed!
For my latest novel, WOLF BRIDE, which is an erotic Tudor Court romance set during the last fateful months of Anne Boleyn's reign, I listened to the following songs, many of which are retro. Though not quite Tudor!
This is Playlist 1 for the early part of this novel, and I am now listening to different tracks for my inspiration. I'll post those up later!
