I adore my husband. If you’ve visited this blog before, that much is probably clear.
Aside from our co-dependence as humans, we also work together as performers and have been known to collaborate on fun projects. Together, we created the music for Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical and Princess Camp: The Musical.
Most recently, I decided to write a short story that includes music. Weird, I know. But think of it this way: there are books where people bake pies, and at the back of the book the author puts in the recipe for the pie you saw the characters baking. Only in this story there is no pie, there’s songs. And for those who are musically-inclined, there’s sheet music available to go with the songs.
Why, you may ask? Because I love collaborating on music with the husband, and no one would want to eat any pie I created the recipe for.
Will everyone who reads the story be interested in the sheet music, or be able to read or play music? Not at all. And the story doesn’t hinge on being able to hum the melody.
I just really like insider extras, and music is something unique I can offer my readers.
The story is titled Song of Nighttide and is available for free download here.
And as for our little song, please enjoy this clip of the husband’s performance.
