In celebration of the release of Amplified (Oct 25th *squee*), two lovely music lovin’ authors have joined me in hosting a contest. Discovering new music is one of my favorite pastimes…so I’d like you to help me. Due to tight budgets, this contest is US only (sorry).

How To Enter
Each author is posting a playlist of some of their or their character’s favorite songs, and we want recommendations from you based on those songs. (If I like Come Here Boy by Imogen Heap, what other song (by a different artist) might I like?)
If you want to be entered into all three author giveaways, choose one song from each author playlist and give each of us a recommendation based on that song. If you are only interested in one or two of the giveaways, then just make recommendations to those authors. Leave your recommendations as a comment to this post.
Contest Ends October 25th
The contest will end on October 25th! Each of us will pick our favorite song recommendationand that will be our grand prize winner (for a total of 3 winners). We’re looking for awesome music we’ve never heard before, so put some thought into those choices As an added treat, we’ll also be choosing 3 runner-up winners because it’s hard to just pick one each.
My tastes are obscure, but I did my best to pick more mainstream artists/songs. Hopefully most of you have heard of these bands or songs. If not, click on the song link and you’ll be directed to a YouTube video.
Here are the songs, all plucked from Logan’s “Sucks to Be a Ghost (Sometimes)” soundtrack, which can be found here: http://jerismithready.com/books/shade/music/ You can also click on the youtube links below
Happy song hunting!
