Welcome to the wide crazy world of TJ Klune

As you can see, this is a blog (a blog, you say? You're like the only person in the world that has one!). Here are my promises to you: I promise to up date this as much as I can. I promise that at some point, you will most likely be offended. I promise you may suffer from the affliction the Klunatics know as Wookie Cry Face. I also promise to make this some place where you can see how my mind works.

You've been warned.

The Playlist for Burn

Hey gang.  We are at 16 days and counting until the release for my second novel, Burn!  I can't wait for you to see what's in store.  Below, you'll find the complete playlist for the book.  Each song was carefully picked because of the nature of the music/lyrics/sound.  Some of the lyrics are very important to the course of the story, so if you're looking for clues, these songs are a great place to start.  I will post three videos of the songs I feel are the true essence of Burn. 

And another thing.  I recently downloaded the app for my phone Pandora.  I know, I know, I am way behind the times.  If you don't know what it is, essentially it gives you the capability to create your own radio station with the music you like and then you are able to share it.  I've thought about making a BOATK radio station.  Thoughts?  Do you use Pandora?

Anyhoo, the set list!  I hope you like these songs as much as I do.  I think they are exactly what Burn is all about.  And, as a last note, obviously I do not own the rights to any of these songs. =D
