Guest Post: DORIANNA by Catherine Stine

Welcome today's guest, Catherine Stine...

Arranged by Catherine Stine

I wanted to share the playlist I made for Dorianna, my YA horror/paranormal that just won Best Horror Book in the Kindle Hub awards! Though I don’t listen to music while I write, I do make playlists for the novels after they’re done. 

How about you? Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists for your novels?

Dorianna summary:
Internet followers, beauty, power. It all sounded good.
Until it transformed into a terrifying reality Dorianna couldn’t stop

Dorianna is a dark twist for the Internet generation on A Picture of Dorian Gray. When her father is jailed, her mother ships lonely, plain Dorianna to her aunt’s. There, Dorianna yearns to build a new identity, but the popular Lacey bullies her—mostly for getting attention from her ex, Ander.

Ander takes Dorianna to Coney Island where Wilson, a videographer, creates a stunning compilation of her. She dreams of being an online sensation, as she’s never even had a birthday party, and vows she’d give anything to go viral. Wilson claims he’s the Prince of Darkness and warns her the pledge has downsides. Dorianna thinks he’s joking. She has no idea of the dire consequences.

She’s thrust into the spotlight, and an incomprehensible nightmare. Not only is she prettier, she’s gaining harmful powers of manipulation. When her powers grow beyond anything she can control, she’s desperate but clueless as to how to stop it.
