Day 3 of the writing challenge is to share a soundtrack of music that has helped the inspiration of my novel. So, who here likes Celtic tunes, haunting melodies, and sweeping epics? If you do, check out the music which I’ve labeled as my book’s official soundtrack (do so by either clicking the picture or the link below.) There are also several tracks of music that capture several of the emotions of my main character Penny. Oh, and, of course, my book’s main theme, which is entitled Stay and is sung by the beautiful British teen singer, Cher Lloyd, who’s emotion helped make the song an epic.
There’s something really amazing about music. It’s emotion in sound waves. It can capture feelings which can often be inexpressible on paper or in words. “Sweet Dreams” sums up painful emotion that I myself have felt and “Magic of Love” brings the scene of Penny and Will’s utter astonishment and wonder to life as they get off the ground and look at the forest in which they’ve been transported too, too stunned to do anything but turn in wonder.
I can’t help but love it!

So, what do you think? Do I have a decent soundtrack here? Does any of it sound a little bit like fantasy and forests, pain and magic?
