8 days to The Next Together: Playlist

To celebrate the release of my first book, I’m posting a new “Behind the Scenes” exclusive about The Next Together daily until September 3rd. You can find them all here, including Chapter One from Matt’s Point of View, a Harry Potter crossover,  A scene from start to finish and the book as different genres. 

Today I’m sharing the playlist for The Next Together with you. I listened to this over 100 times when I wrote the book, and I can’t hear one of these songs without getting all tearful about it!
