Playlist for Work-in-Progress (or finished) Novels


Hi Friends,

I am in the process of querying agents for my latest fairy tale inspired novel. A lot of agents are now using an online forms for submissions. There are the normal questions like, word count, bio, sample, similar books, etc. But I came across one the other day that asked for an optional playlist. At first, I was reluctant, thinking it was a waste of time, but then my husband said, "You should have one of those anyway." You see, I am a huge movie soundtrack fan: Pulp Fiction, Purple Rain, Dirty Dancing, Guardians of the Galaxy, are some of my favorites (btw - I have all of these in records lol). I was like, "You know what? You're are right." 

It turned out being a great exercise that I really enjoyed. Not only was it not a waste of time, it gave me insight into my novel that I had missed along the way. I went back and changed a couple of scenes that I believe made the book stronger. So I would totally recommend a playlist for your work-in-progress or even novels you think are finished. lol

Below are the songs I chose. I didn't add all of these to my submission, and I actually had more and decided I needed to kind of weed them out. You can follow this link: Potion Playlist to Amazon Music if you want to listen to them. (Parental Guidance -  some songs are Explicit)
