Who Says You Can’t Have a Theme Song for a Book Series?
I like music. I love to sing and I play various instruments…to varying degrees of proficiency. As a result, whether one of my characters is singing a song, listening to their favorite music or describing music they’re hearing in a certain scene, music has a tendency to creep into my books. So why not make use of it and branch out beyond just the written word? Why not give a book or series a theme song?
In comes my talented friend and his wife who make up the band called The Majestic High (Andi Roselund & Cindi Kim). They’re AMAZING. Together, they took lyrics I wrote as kind of a theme song for The Realm Series (the first few verses are in book 1 of the series), then composed and recorded a hauntingly beautiful piece.
And guess what!? It’s finally available this week! You can find it on iTunes or probably just about any other digital music site, as well as on my website, here (or below). The name of the song is “Love Forever Wins” and will come up in iTunes if you type in the title and “The Majestic High.”
I hope you will give it a listen, download it and get carried away into the beauty of The Realm. Andi also did the amazing soundtrack for the audio book of The Realm: The Awakening Begins. I can’t rave about his music enough.
We’re currently working on some songs mentioned in 2108: Eyes Open as well as a full album of music inspired by The Realm. It’s such fun to cross over the boundaries of various artforms, blend them and create more beauty. Who says you can’t have music that goes with a book?!
