As you (eagerly, I hope) await the July 29th release of Molly’s Song, I thought I would put something together for you to fill the days between now and then. As I’ve said before, I write with music playing in the background. As I plot a novel, I also consider songs that evoke the feeling of the book. Since I write historical fiction, some of the songs are obviously period songs from the era in which the book is set, but I also include modern songs that fit with the overall tone/theme that I am going for.
I think back in November 2019, around the time that I finished the first draft, I made a post in which I talked about the songs I listened to while writing it. I decided to go one better than that and put together a YouTube playlist with the songs. If you want to “listen like Lee,” just click here. Some of the songs are modern, some are 19th Century period songs, there’s a few shanties, and a Scottish tune. I’d say there’s something there to tickle every fancy.
And don’t forget, if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy of Molly’s Song, you can find the links here!
Until next time, friends, take care of yourselves. And each other.
