Sage, Smoke & Fire Playlist


Music is a big part of how I write. Many times while I am writing a scene, I will choose a song that fits the mood of the story and listen to it on repeat until the scene or chapter is finished. For Sage, Smoke and Fire, I made a playlist of songs that reflect the current mood, character, theme or situation for each chapter. There are a few chapters that have more than one selection, and there are a handful of songs that I actually reference in the text. The list of songs, chapter by chapter, is listed below. Be sure to check out the "Sage, Smoke & Fire" playlist on Spotify to be fully immersed in the magical world of the coven.
