Music Sets the Mood Guest blog by Debbie Peterson

I’m not so sure I could write without music going on in the background. On the other hand, I can’t write if someone is singing, either. Why? Because, horrible as my voice is, and the fact that no one can stand to hear it but me, I have to sing along if I know the lyrics. If I don’t? I strain to hear what those lyrics are saying. This is not…repeat… not conducive to writing coherent sentences.
Imagine something like this:  “Just then, a dim ball of light off the left passageway curbed her troubled thoughts. She stood still, and focused on the light. To her utter amazement, the ball grew in both dimension and luminosity. The orb moved toward her, and then…something about a truck in a farmer's field, no trespass sign, and time to kill…paused, about ten paces away.” Nope, not going to work.
So, what did I listen to most while writing Spirit of the Rebellion?
1.  Thundering Rainstorm from the album Nature's Relaxing Sounds (It’s the         only song on the album, by the way).
2.  Lord of the Rings movie soundtrack (All three movies).
3.  Songs from Yanni – In the Mirror and Tribute albums.
4.  Songs from New World movie soundtrack.
5.  Songs from Braveheart movie soundtrack.
6.  Ashokan Farewell by Jay Unger

So, there you have it. Throughout the day (or night), I’ll put on the playlist that best suits a particular scene, immerse myself in the story, and start writing…

Spirit of Rebellion 
By Deborah K Peterson 

Blurb: Souls touch and emotions flare when a historian and an embittered spirit form an unlikely alliance to investigate the centuries-old riddle surrounding his death… 

Ready for a fresh chapter in her life, Shae Lynn Montgomery accepts a job translating a cache of Civil War documents from Wisconsin’s famous Norwegian regiment. The assignment takes her to Chickamauga’s haunted Starling Plantation and face-to-face with a handsome captain—its angry ghost in residence. 

Tristan Jordahl, falsely accused of treason, has no use for the living—not even the lovely translator invading his home. Despite Tristan’s best efforts to frighten her, Shae Lynn refuses to leave, and reluctantly, Tristan enlists her help to clear his name. 

But as they grow closer to the truth—and to each other—an evil spirit makes it clear he will do anything to stop them. Can a love that transcends time overcome all obstacles?
