Can a novel series have a soundtrack? I mean, movies get soundtracks, right? Why not books?
The male protagonist in my novel series (Entropy) is an amateur jazz pianist, somewhat of a jazz history expert, and a dancer. So naturally, music plays a big part in his stories. I decided to comb through all three novels and put together a comprehensive list of all the song references. Then I created a Spotify playlist which I’m calling the Entropy Soundtrack. Fun, right?
It’s mostly jazz, but because the last book—Gravity—includes two weddings, there are also a couple oddball things you might not expect. But all soundtracks are like that, I think: 80% songs that kind of fit together and 20% songs that are totally weird and out of place.
Go check it out. I dropped a link to this list to a few of my beta readers (once you beta read for me, you beta everything for life), and the consensus is that it’s a pretty awesome list. Here’s the link again: bit.ly/entropy-music
