Allerleirauh Playlist: A King and His Promise

Music plays an important role in many parts of our lives - whether it be a love song we share with a person, music we enjoy to listen to when we're on a road trip, or . . . in a writer's life, songs that inspire the landscape of our novels. Much like in the movies, music helps to shape characters and inspire the emotional scenes!

I wanted to share my own playlist with all of you today (and give you a sort of musical sneak peek) that I listened to while writing "Allerleirauh." The music should set up a more 'melancholy" sort of scene - where you can tell by the music that something isn't right. One can almost hear the loneliness of Aurelia's world, and how isolated she feels after the abusive ordeal with her father. Towards the end of the playlist, emotions are heightened by the need to leave. . . and the music sets the stage for Aurelia's escape from Tranen, and her transformation into "Allerleirauh."

Much of it is purely score / musical soundtracks - but I always find these interesting when speaking with other authors. The music is what inspires me, and builds the world in my head. I hope you can see the world of "Allerleirauh" more clearly, and enjoy it as you read along on August 22nd!
