Author Andrea Cremer gives us her playlist that helped her creative process for THE TURNCOAT’S GAMBIT.
It’s the second week of the blog tour for Andrea Cremer‘s The Turncoat’s Gambit, book three of The Inventor’s Secret series, and we’re honored to release the playlist of songs that helped inspire her during the process of writing the book. The list shows the unique mind of Cremer and how she was able to come up with such an equally unique story.
Music plays an essential role in my creative process. When I’m in the brainstorming a new book there’s always a signal that I’m ready to begin writing – and that signal is music. I’ll be walking, shopping, exercising, driving and I’ll hear a song and that song will put me in a scene. That’s the magic moment where I know it’s time to transform the ideas in my head into words on the page. All the playlists for THE INVENTOR’S SECRET have been eclectic because it’s a world of the past, but also a fantastical imagining of that past. The songs here represent the adventure, whimsy, and contradictions of a steampunk history. – Andrea Cremer

About The Turncoat’s Gambit (Book 3 of The Inventor’s Secret trilogy):
Charlotte is on the run. The Empire is hunting her. The Revolution wants her back. And Charlotte has allied herself with pirates, just to stay safe.
But things are not what they seem. There’s a traitor in the revolutionaries’ midst pulling unseen strings, and surprises lurk around every corner. As Charlotte is left to sort out what she truly thinks about the revolution she’s spent her whole life fighting for, she must also battle to keep herself and her friends alive.
