‘It could have been the last song ever played on Titanic’ – Ellie Stevenson

We seem to be having a run on reincarnation here. My guest this week has a haunting tale with two timelines, one in the present and one aboard the magnificently doomed RMS Titanic. She first had the idea from a water effect in a Madonna album track, and when research turned up a song in the White Star Line orchestra repertoire, that piece became a signature for the characters and their loss. She is Ellie Stevenson and she’ll be here on Wednesday talking about the Undercover Soundtrack for Ship of Haunts: The Other Titanic Story.

‘Perfectly dark, tortured, and ever so slightly angry’ – Keira Michelle Telford

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

”He hummed Cole Porter – so anachronistic in those days of psychedelic rock’n’roll’ – Anne R Allen

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.
