I love to read and write with music playing. The playlist for writing Fireside is a thing of beauty, I gotta say. You can see it, listen to samples or get it for iTunes here.

If you’ve read the book, you know Bo is in a garage band with Noah Shepherd, Eddie Haven and Ray Tolley. I picture them a little like this:

It’s a cover by Bowling for Soup of an old classic, “I Melt With You” by Modern English, which I used to listen to endlessly when I was but a young whippersnapper. The Texas guitar in the video is great, and the bass line (In my book, Bo is the bass player) is nice and simple.
