November 22nd, 2013 Everyday, everything
Today I am hosting Frankie Ash and her book ERMANE as a stop on the tour hosted by Book Nerd Tours.  Today we get a glimpse of the music behind the writer.  I like to know what the writer is listening to as they put together a creation.  So often while I read a song will come to mind and I am always curious if the author had a certain soundtrack setting the mood.
My song list  is really not a list because I listened to albums in their entirety while I wrote. Here are a few of my favorite albums, since I write the book over the span of a decade I omitted some:) I hope this will be fine, if not just met me know and I will flush out my absolute favorite songs, but really it was the album’s entire track that moved me.
Enya: Paint The Sky With Stars
Chevelle: This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In)
Metallica: …And Justice for All
Ellie Goulding: Halcyon
A strange mix I know, but what can I say…I love it all!
But in the background, in the depths of my subconscious, I always heard Carl Orff’s O Fortuna from Carmina Burana playing…loudly! Here is a link for you to watch a wonderful performance of the piece. Tis moving:) And it’s only 3 minutes.

In the village of Eludwid, seventeen-year-old Eramane Fahnestock goes about her life, cheerfully disregarding a prophecy made to her parents that she would have a great gift. Not yet wed and beset with boredom, Eramane cannot shake the feeling that something exciting awaits her beyond Eludwid. But when she is invited to picnic with a handsome young suitor, Eramane has no idea that her life will soon change forever.

As Eramane prepares for her date, she is suddenly hypnotized by a strange voice that tells her he will be coming for her that night. Unsettled but determined to press forward, Eramane and her suitor, Lebis, head to the woods to enjoy their picnic. As darkness falls on the forest, however, a beast emerges, transforming their beautiful outing into a terrifying scene. Taken captive and carried away to a mountain hideaway, Eramane finds her memories are soon clouded, even as her family frantically searches for her back home.

In this gripping fantasy tale, evil is summoned to the mountaintop, forcing a young woman to discover her magical gifts and exact revenge against a beast determined to destroy everything she has ever loved.

About The Author

 Frankie Ash grew up on the eastern shores of the US, and her Southern accent would rock as a cartoon character voice. Most of her time is spent with her laptop, spinning tales, fabricating worlds, and writing new creatures into existence. But when she’s not playing Dr. Frankenstein with words, she is either reading, absorbing anything sci-fi/fantasy related, or chasing after, and sometimes capturing, things that go bump in the night.

 Her debut novel, Eramane (Archway Publishing) is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, IndieBound, and Kobo.
