Synopsis

At twenty-one, Cassie is in a dead end job and has just been dumped, whilst her friends are succeeding  at school, careers, and life in general.

On a whim, she hands the reigns of her decisions over to Twitter, and at first her followers seem to be making her life better.

However, as the orders continue, and become increasingly strange, she finds herself held at ransom, forced to commit crimes for an unknown party that seems to be stalking her at every turn.

With the lives of her friends and family at risk, she has no choice to play along.

But this isn’t the first time this has happened to someone like her.

And if she doesn’t find out who’s pulling her strings, it won’t be the last.

“@” book soundtrack

Each BAM is essentially a movie in book form, and the playlists are set out as such, winding and weaving you musically through the narrative.

You can follow this link to listen to the book soundtrack in your Spotify app, or spin through it below.

The soundtrack for ‘@’ features a delectable selection, from my dear friends Stealing Sheep to newcomers Luna, who I discovered at the Loveless album launch (who’ll likely be on a soundtrack down the line). There’s also some MogwaiEmilíana Torrini, Dan Le Sac / Scroobius Pip / De La Soul, Die Antwoord, The Runaways, AC/DC and I think about 24 other tracks/artists that give some vibes to the story you’ll hopefully be reading in just a few weeks.

That was it.  Two tweets, essentially the same run-on sentence that murmured and mumbled deep in subconscious recesses of my mind, ruminating and gestating whilst I slept.  Upon waking the next day I had a full 10 page outline for a screenplay.
