Could The Undercover Soundtrack help you reach readers? Post at the Alliance of Independent Authors
You know The Undercover Soundtrack? The Alliance of Independent Authors got curious about it and asked me to write a post. Why did I set the series up? What do I get out of it? What do the participating authors get, aside from a singular blogging challenge and another place to get their work seen?
I’m musing on these questions and others at the ALLI blog today. And if you’ve been wondering if you dare ask for a spot, I talk about that too. Do come over. (Or if you’ve wanted to ask but are shy about doing so in public, email me on rozmorriswriter at gmail dotcom…)

I truly believe that a soundtrack helps make the story. I often “hear” a song as I read, one that perfectly fits the scene. When I write, (which I only do for myself), I incorporate music into the story because it helps to weave the layers of the plot. Short version….to me, music is not only necessary, it’s part of the fabric of the story, whether or not it’s intentional.

I don’t get it while reading – it would be too distracting. But often when I hone the mood of a scene I have a piece of music in mind, which I then go and play in order to explore it more.
Interesting how different brains work!
