Well if you’ve been sitting around asking yourself, “I wonder what album Stephanie is really into right now?” you’ve obviously not been stopping by my blog enough. Right now I am ALL about Lorde. I just can’t freaking get enough! Her Pure Heroine album is the soundtrack to my life right now and every song on it has been helping me write this book in some way.

For those of you that missed it, right now I’m working on The Vanessa Kensley Series Book 2. And yes, it does have a proper title now, but that won’t be revealed until the official cover reveal later this year.

This song is great, and I was so surprised to hear it on the end credits of Mockingjay Part 1 this past weekend. I feel like Lorde is just EVERYWHERE right now, but I can’t say that I’m surprised. She’s got something for everyone.

Now, since it’s impossible to find a clear album version on YouTube I’m giving you guys this great dubstep version instead.

Lorde – Glory and Gore

I’ve been really trying to push through this week and for myself as an author that means finding the perfect beat and cranking up the stereo.

Today I’m bringing you another track by Lorde. Her style just fits seamlessly into where I am in this book. It was a great backdrop for my giving the reader more of Vanessa’s back story.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. Lorde – Tennis Court…

This song has been stuck in my head for the last two weeks. It’s just so haunting and amazingly enough a perfect fit for Vanessa Kensley Book 2.

I first came across the song when it was used in one of the trailers for the Bitten season 2 TV series. Which is an AMAZING show. My heart almost exploded with excitement when I discovered that season 2 was about to premier. After that I went on a rampage trying to find the piece of music, and after locating it on YouTube I found out from the comments section that the song was also used on Hemlock Grove, another fantastically dark and gritty paranormal TV show.

This is one of those songs that just make you want to lay back and melt into a trance.
