A lot of us writers use music as inspiration. I might, or might not have borrowed the title of my first Bourbon Boys story from Luke Bryan. Drunk on You has a little karaoke, and a few good old country music references (and a good love story and some nekkid parts). I can’t listen to music while I write, but when I listen, I get a lot of good ideas!
But what if things got switched around, and the story inspired some music? A few months ago, our publisher, Liz, announced a new venture for Entangled…Music! And just about the time she told us what it was all about , I was elbow deep in edits for my newest release, Accidentally in Love with the Biker, and Kellie and Quinn were at a dance. With music.
Smarty drawers that I am, I had to comment on the author email loop.
A few hours later, I got this tweet:

What happens when an author asks for a song like Earth Wind and Fire meets Hank Williams Sr… https://soundcloud.com/subtextrecords/dubthat2step-by-hubba-dub … 🙂 @TeriAnneStanley
An author asked today if she could have a song for her book like Earth Wind and Fire meets Hank Williams Sr, and David replied that would be one crazy ass love child but here you go… 🙂
Unfortunately, I don’t seem to be able to share the image that came with it. You really just have to go look.
And LISTEN! LISTEN TO MY SONG! Seriously, it’s awesome!
I’m wondering what we can do to music for my next book, which has a tequila heiress and a bourbon boy hooking up…Los Lobos crossed with Frank Sinatra?
About Accidentally in Love with the Biker:
Aspiring writer Kellie Dalton needs a man, and fast. When she’s rear-ended by a sexy-as-sin biker on the way to a Vegas romance readers convention, she sees her chance. If he’ll pose as her fake boyfriend long enough to impress a bestselling author, Kellie has a shot at saving the bookstore for underprivileged kids she runs back home.
Quinn Anderson doesn’t know what to make of the cute little writer who stirs his heart and his libido, but he doesknow he wants to get better acquainted. And if that means keeping up their sexy ruse all week, he’s game.
Quinn knows girl like Kellie deserves someone with a secure future to help with her store, not a guy struggling to turn a profit on his chopper shop. But if his motorcycle designs win the big Vegas competition, he’ll have enough prize money to fund his dreams…and hers.
