Soundtrack to FEAST OF SHADOWS

I come up with a soundtrack for all of my projects. It usually starts with theme songs for my characters, which helps crystallize them in my mind. The rest is either music that reminded me of certain scenes or that I listened to while writing the book.

This playlist is available on YouTube. Click here to listen in order.

You can also follow my ongoing, ever-expanding playlist built from my social media posts. It's called All the Music You Missed, and it covers almost every genre, including songs you may not have heard -- or just may not have heard in awhile.
