Saturday Music: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

One day, I will actually blog regularly. And then the world will end.

Anyway, Nano was a bust. But I have a new plot for VH, and it actually makes me giddily happy, so here’s hoping I can churn it out and still be on target for looking for a publisher in 2017.

In other news, it’s December! And December means holidays! And this is my first year in ages not having to work retail!

Anyway, so Christmas music is playing constantly at my house right now. But given that it’s Advent and not Christmas yet, I wanted to share something appropriate to the actual season.

…And Peter Hollens just came out with a new release, and it must be shared ❤ (If you’ve never heard of him and have any enjoyment for a capella, you’ve got to give this a listen)

Saturday Music: The Doctor’s Wife

Today’s music selection is in celebration of the upcoming release of the Steampunk Fairy Tales anthology that I’m a part of! Please feel free to join us for Steampunk goodness and discussions as well as some giveaways by the authors involved.

 

For me, Steampunk is not just the trappings of the society (although I love the Victorian Era) but the idea of pushing science beyond human reckoning. This song definitely captures this idea and is definitely similar to one of the stories in our upcoming anthology!

 

Saturday Music: Every Morning

Been busy with life and job stuff. Didn’t mean to be gone so long! But I’ve got a pile of books to review, starting with Aeronaut’s Windlass (short summary: go read it!), which I’ll get to over the next few weeks as I read them. NaNoWriMo is coming up as well, so I’ll be doing shorter blogs to track what I’m doing there.

But today’s music is a personal favorite. Not just for sound, but I think it kind of summarizes how the MMC sees the FMC in my current WIP, and how she kind of is.

Saturday Music: Bibliotheca ~ Dreamer in the Library

Been recovering from last week’s race. But we’re all good now.

And just in time for OCRemix’s latest album release! It’s become my current go-to for music, particularly since I’ve been replaying the game it’s based around, Final Fantasy IX.

I couldn’t sample my new fight scene music, so here’s a piece by one of my favorite artists of the bunch:

I highly recommend checking out the rest of the album, even if you’ve not played IX (which I also recommend! I’ll do a review for it later, perhaps)
