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.
