Main Characters and Their Theme Songs

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent. ~Victor Hugo

Not too long ago I did a post regarding two movie scores that helped with the tone of Jonas and Hattie's story in Pity Isn't An Option. (If you missed it, you can read about it here.) The reason I'm bringing this up again is I belong to an independently published author group called Indie Ignites, and one of our members posted Indie Ignite's Not So Infinite (But Pretty Eclectic) Playlist a couple of days ago. (Pretty cool idea--check out the entire playlist here!)

Along with the musical score inspiration for PIAO, I also had one playlist for Jonas, and a separate playlist for Hattie as I wrote. So when Stephanie asked us to share our main character's theme songs (or the theme song for the book) for the post, it wasn't hard to pick a song from each of their playlists to share as their "themes". :)

Jonas' is We All Fall in Love Sometimes by Jeff Buckley

And Hattie's is Gone Away by Lucy Schwartz

So what do you think? How do these songs make you feel?

Do you have a theme song for your life, or for your main character if you're a writer?

Tune in tomorrow for Pity's PAPERBACK COVER REVEAL!!! (dun dun DUN) I am so excited about this, as the lovely and quite talented Hafsah Faizal at IceyDesigns will be doing my cover REVEAL at IceyBooks! This is what I said when I saw it for the first time:


(No seriously. You can ask her.)

Oh and don't forget... it's Read An Ebook Week! Which means the ebook version of Pity Isn't An Option is currently FREE!  (You can get it here.)

Be blessed,
