Musical Monday: Michelle Smith
Welcome to the second installment of Musical Monday! Every Monday I will feature a book and the music that inspired it! This is an awesome opportunity to showcase your book and also inspire other writers looking for new music. In case you missed it, last week’s post can be found here.
Today on the blog, we have the fabulous author Michelle Smith!
Name: Michelle Smith
Book: Kingdom Come
Coming out May 22 2013
Genre: YA Apocalyptic (Sci-fi)
Michelle also provided some brilliant insight to some of the songs she listed on her playlist. Here are her thoughts on why she added some of the songs she did for Kingdom Come:
“Demons” by Imagine Dragons is what I consider to be the theme song for the book.
“The Ruler and the Killer” just screams Bennett to me. While editing his scenes, I play this and Fall Out Boy on repeat.
“Your Guardian Angel” and “All We Are”: both of these capture the relationship between Kerrigan and Ethan perfectly.
Michelle’s a lover of love and all things happy. She laughs way too much (sometimes at things that aren’t even funny), is a complete sap, and will try to convince you that Harry Potter isn’t just a book series, but a way of life.
After studying at East Carolina University, she ran away to Florida with her Coastie husband. She now lives in North Carolina with the devilishly handsome Coastie, a son who inherited her creative streak, and crazy border collie mix.
I hope you guys enjoyed checking out the music that inspired Kingdom Come. Let me know in the comments what your favorite song was. Or if you have any suggestions for Michelle’s playlist, let us know!
And if you’d like your book to be featured with your playlist, check out the information I’d need from you and then send an email to jolene.haley(@)(gmail.com) <-without parenthesis. I welcome any traditional published authors, self or indie published authors, and even unpublished authors as long as you have a finished manuscript. All genres are happily accepted!
Happy Musical Monday!
Eee! Thank you so much for having me! <3
