Words and Melody – Two of the most powerful and emotional forms of communication became the foundation for my second book Alumni. The real challenge was: how could I do something different and unique for my readers that hadn’t been done before?
In Summer Session, I gave the gift of a quote for each chapter. The quote was unique to each character and the moment in the book that I attempted to drop some serious “science.” In Alumni, I turned to my love for music to help paint a clearer picture. Each chapter starts with a soundtrack similar to a movie. The goal is to have the reader hear the song and be placed right in the center of the scene (chapter). Both the song and the characters will hopefully evoke emotions that will take readers deeper into their worlds.
If you’ve read the book, listen to the soundtrack of each chapter and explore the harmony of words and melody.
