My guest this week says all her major characters have their own theme song. For the first novel in her post-apocalyptic romance series she drew inspiration from the queen of Victoriandustrial music Emilie Autumn – and if that flavour of music is new to you (it was to me) here’s a crash course. The novel is Silver: Acheron, the author is Keira Michelle Telford and she’ll be here on Wednesday talking about her Undercover Soundtrack. Corsets optional.
‘I needed music to drum up those teen feelings about life, adventure, and parents who didn’t understand’ – Kevin McGill
My Undercover Soundtrack guest this week is Kevin McGill – one half of my favourite books podcast, Guys Can Read. To write his epic adventure fantasy Nikolas & Company, he needed to get back in touch with his early teen self – but his book’s soundtrack goes way beyond mere angst. There’s music for magic, mythology, mayhem – and even, ahem, ‘girl scenes’. I’ll let him explain all that, and more, here on Wednesday
My guest this week is another writer who usually keeps music well away from her workspace. But when she unearthed a note written to her by an enigmatic friend from her college days, she found herself drawn to Ella Fitzgerald’s legendary recording of the Cole Porter songbook on the Verve label. The novel is The Gatsby Game, and its author, Anne R Allen, will be talking about its undercover soundtrack here on Wednesday.
