As I write this, Seduced by the Screenwriter is being formatted. It'll be available on Amazon by December. It's the second book in the Hollywood in Muskoka series, and is definitely the most emotional, hottest romance I've ever written. Needless to say, I'm very excited about the release.
I plot using the screenwriting three act structure approach, as described in my April 2016 post. I imagine these contemporary romance novels as movies. Movies have soundtracks! Therefore I created playlist "soundtracks" for Caught on Camera and Seduced by the Screenwriter.
Within a chapter, there's a cue to listen to a song that matches the emotions of the scene, just like in a film soundtrack. Each song in the playlist reflects and enhances that stage of the hero or heroine's emotional journey.
It was a challenge to find songs that would appeal across generations and had the right visual (YouTube) and auditory resonance with the characters' emotions. It took me ages, but I'm passionate about film and music so it was a labor of love. I discovered fabulous artists—too many to include in a 19 or 20 song playlist. Fortunately there will be at least six books in the series! By the way, each can be read as a stand alone romance.
Readers who subscribe to a music streaming service such as Apple Music, Spotify or Google Play Music can create a playlist from the song list in the front matter of the novel, or on my website.
Alternatively, readers can open my Seduced by the Screenwriter playlist on YouTube in their browsers. The video format allowed me to include in the playlist two YouTube movie clips that fit with the story.
Smartphones, Tablets, MP3 Player...
You'll need a device with Internet access or an MP3 player to listen to music while reading. That's the downside. For convenience, readers would likely prefer to be able to click on a link to the song within the ebook. Unfortunately that's against Amazon rules.
Yes, it's a little more work to listen to music at specific points in the novel. On the other hand, every time the reader listens to the playlist, they'll recall the emotional roller coaster of the love story and the HEA! Worth it, right?
