Hi, readers! We have a real treat in store for you today, a spotlight on a book by Mary Maddox, a talented author!
Mary, an author I met on my journey, has a book tour running right now.
Let's check out the details, shall we?
Intriguing! Mary is providing us with an exclusive playlist for her new book...
Compiling a playlist for Daemon Blood was a challenge for me. I admire playlists in movies, the way the music underscores and sometimes provides ironic commentary on the story. I strived to meet that high standard in this playlist. My knowledge of music is less than encyclopedic, though. I listened to numerous songs and musical passages to discover new songs, and tracked down pieces I knew by ear without knowing what they’re called. I’m mostly satisfied with the twelve songs in the playlist, but I suspect that somewhere in the vast universe of music I could have found music that complements my story even better.
The playlist below is eclectic, to say the least. I’ve tried to select music to represent the diverse characters and bizarre events in Daemon Blood. I hope you enjoy it.
Igor Stravinsky--The Firebird
Gustav Holst--Mars from The Planets
Emmy Lou Harris— Pledging My Love
Iggy Pop--The Passenger
Lords Of The New Church--Dance With Me
Sonny Rollins--There'll Never Be Another You
Aaliyah--Rock The Boat
Erik Satie--Gymnopédie No.1
Samuel Barber--Adagio for Strings
The Doors— Strange Days
The complete playlist is here.
Awesome! Thanks so much, Mary!

A glance at Marie's books
Cool new feature!
The fact is…our policy has changed considerably, at least for a while. Check out our 'Blog Policy' for more information about the types of features offered, how you can purchase a guest spot, my policy on review requests, and rules for guest writers. Starting from 2021, I was charging for some types of posts. Of course, there is never a fee for a guest article, as long as you adhere to the blog's theme. I also will not charge for big multi-author events which I host (these are giveaways or participation questions, and it's obvious what materials you're providing). If you'd like to submit a guest book review (no, I don't write book reviews, please don't ask me), I will always accept those and not charge you a fee at all. Starting in 2022, I WILL NO LONGER BE posting new release features, cover reveals, Author's Bookshelf features, author interviews, character interviews, and poetry spotlights. I am far too overwhelmed with other work to do constant blog posts. I'll still be writing my own articles sometimes and hosting multi-author special features. For companies that can afford a sponsored post, I'm willing to discuss a reasonable quote for a specialized article which fits within the blog's theme (No blatant promotions). Email me at
if you wish to participate in a unique post. Feel free to approach me with your creative ideas about a blog post. Slots at Writing in the Modern Age are always first come, first served. Contact us and reserve a spot! Refer to the 'guest schedule' at the top of the screen for further clarification about availability. Thanks for understanding.
Thoughts and opinions by guest authors do not necessarily represent any thoughts and opinions by this website's administrator, nor are they directly endorsed. All writings on the blog are subject to review and editing. Please visit our blog policy to understand the site's theme a little better.
