My guest this week has a background in acting and theatre directing. When he had the idea for his novel, he was very aware of music helping him to create the setting, the characters and their tensions. Flamenco gave him the unease in one protagonist’s heart; Greek drinking songs suggested another’s melancholy temperament; Miles Davis and Bowie suggested a bridge between them. He is Paul Adkin and he’s on the Red Blog with his Undercover Soundtrack.

Reblogged this on pauladkin and commented:
Roz Morris’ blog “Nail My Novel” is, in my opinion, the best blog for Indie writers on the Net. I have the honour today of having When Sirens Call featured in her Undercover Soundtrack section. In this section readers are able to get a different feel for a book, via the music that inspired the author whilst writing it. If you like books and music you should love this.
Aw, thanks for the praise, Paul!
