Guest Post: SILENT ECHO Author Elisa Freilch Playlist and a Giveaway!


I love great book playlist and I have another to share with you today!



So Elisa has come onto the blog today to share with us the playlist for her book, SILENT ECHO. There is also a prize giveaway below for a chance to win a pack of awesome things including a book purse inspired by the book, an iphone case and other trinkets featuring the beautiful illustrations of the upcoming trailer and a YA book of your choice. Have you seen the sneak peek? [elisafreilich.tumblr.com]



SILENT ECHO [http://www.elisafreilich.com/] comes out September 10th from Diversion Books and it's not your typical fantasy: Sirens, Music, and Prophecies! Oh, and romance!

Music that inspired me during the creation of Silent Echo: A Siren’s Tale


For those of you who have already visited my site, you’ll see that music is not only a huge part of Silent Echo, but it really is the foundation upon which SE was built.  The playlist that is featured on my site is one of songs (other than the ones I created) which are referenced in the actual book.


But what about the music that shapes the writer?  The music to which I sing along in the car and then say to myself, “God, if Portia were to reveal a hint of that vibe in her personality…”  or “Yes!  That’a exactly the kind of turmoil Max is feeling inside!”.  That is a whole different playlist.  Here are a few of said songs.  Songs that move me.  That I flip around in my mouth until every last bit of flavor has been extracted.  Songs that really drive me to write and to extract all of life’s flavors as well:  (fair warning – the list is eclectic to say the least)



Mumford & Sons: My Lover’s Eyes





Brett Dennen: Ain’t No Reason

Joshua Radin: You Got Growing Up to Do

Jason M’Raz: You F’ing Did It


The Charlie Daniels Band: The Devil went down to Georgia (I love a song that tells a story)



The Cranberries: Dreams



Edie Brickell & New Bohemians: What I am


Eminem: Square Dance (AAAAAA Love Eminem!!!!)




Erasure: Yahoo!

Fleetwood Mac: Second Hand News


Florence & the Machine: Drumming Song



Howard Jones: No One is to Blame

Eddie Vedder: Hard Sun


Indigo Girls: Closer to Fine



Elton John: Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters



The list goes on and on.  Much like Portia, I have a ridiculous number of songs in my iTunes.  But the only time I’m not listening to them is when I’m actually writing.  Otherwise, pump up the volume, if you please…

About Elisa:

Elisa Freilich has enjoyed a love affair with language from her earliest days. Raised in rural Monsey, New York, Elisa spent her days reading whatever crossed her path and developing a keen appreciation for the ever-present music in her home – from classical to rock. French lessons and creative writing workshops complemented her adolescence, which was also greatly enhanced by a summer spent abroad at Cambridge University. From the time she could read and write, Elisa could often be found composing poems, song lyrics and satirical newspapers.

After her college years at Boston University, Elisa continued her creative pursuits, working as a junior VP of Marketing at a corporate graphic design agency and, later, as an interior decorator. Eventually, Elisa left the workforce to raise her family, in her now hometown of Englewood, NJ.
Throughout the years, Elisa has retained her devotion to all genres of books and music and was determined to synthesize her passions into one refreshing and original platform. The result is her debut novel, SILENT ECHO: A Siren’s Tale, which will be published by Diversion Books in Summer 2013. With her own lyrical style, Elisa has created a world that young adults around the globe will find intensely gripping and refreshingly original.

When Elisa is not writing, her creative outlets still abound. She is fierce with a set of knitting needles, a hot glue gun and any ingredients that can somehow be fashioned into a sinful and highly caloric babka.
