I’ve also chosen to cross post my Monday “Movie” Book Trailer Swap with the lovely lady Lauren @AlwaysMe (blog) Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek (blog) @SarcasticEnigma (Twitter) and musical maestro Mischenko @readrantrockandroll.com (blog) @J_Mischenko (Twitter). Here are the rules:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favourites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

 

Music and Writing ~ #MusicMonday 

by Callie Carmen

 

Music has always played a big part of my family’s lives. From childhood piano lessons to school band, lead roles in musicals to a rock band and writing and producing songs for video games or for fun. As you read my novels, you will see that I have scenes with my characters going dancing, to concerts, and listening to their favorite songs. It just seemed like the natural thing for me to do as I wrote the stories.

 

My latest book release is Dream Catcher which is part of the wonderful anthology Mystic Desire

Dream Catcher

Long ago a medicine man had made a matched set of dream catchers as a wedding gift to protect the Chief’s daughter and her warrior husband. He had called upon the benevolent spirits to keep the two soul mates safe and in a loving, healthy marriage. 

 

It was foretold that if the two dream catchers were ever divided the new owners would be drawn together as soul mates. Was that possible? 

 

Even in my short Dream Catcher story I couldn’t help to at least mention music. In it Jake the hero of the book is moving into a rental property on a lake. He is spending the summer there to get some quiet time away from the city, so he can focus on writing his latest romance novel. It was a long drive to the Great Sacandaga Lake from Southern Connecticut and Manhattan. It was giving him far too much time to think about his dream girl. 

 

Here he is on the drive to the rental home:

 

Jake

 

The long drive to the lake at the rental cottage had been torture. Memories of Angel’s and my time together kept popping up in my head. I had to turn the radio up and sing along to some old rock songs to keep my sanity. 

 

Joseph

 

In Joseph, book three in my Risking Love series there is a bit of a happy tear-jerker scene, that includes the song, In Case You Didn’t Know by Brett Young. I remember the first time I heard this song. I was in the car with my husband and he was generously letting me listen to country music and Brett’s song came on. The words pulled my husband in and he squeezed my thigh and said, “That is a beautiful song. It’s true, I don’t tell you enough that I’m crazy about you. I could never live without you.” My chest tightened like the scenes I read in love stories. I knew right then, that I had to replace the song title I had originally chosen for Joseph’s special moment. It is now: In Case You Didn’t Know.

 

Here is the link for, In Case You Didn’t Know:

 

I’m dying to use the song, More Hearts Than Mine by Ingrid Andress and I think I know just the story that it with fit. But you’ll have to wait and see. 

 

Here is the link for, More Hearts Than Mine:

 

When I write for the most part I like silence. But when I’m working on social media sites I love listing to my playlist on Spotify. 

 

Here are a few more favorites of mine: 

 

Rainbow by Kacey Musgraves:


Butterflies by Kacey Musgraves: 

Look What You’ve Done by Jets:

    1. Gibby,
      Thank you. I agree Jessica Greeley rocks. She put it together for me. Worth the money. I only know how to do slide show movies.

  1. Beautiful trailer! Music and dancing are my favorite things among the trees.

    Thanks for sharing. You are one talented lady!

    1. Hi Dee,
      Thank you. I’m glad you thought the video was so good. Jessica Greeley rocks. Glad you got to hear some of the music.
      Callie

    1. Ric:
      Thank you. I’ll let Jessica Greeley know how much you liked it. I only supplied some of the art she got the others and made it for me.
      Callie

      1. I love that Callie Carmen introduces her personal love of music into her writing. It makes it all that much more real. These song choices are great and the trailer is very speical.

  2. Rita:
    Thank you. Yes, Jessica Greeley made the video for me it is lovely.

    I’m so glad to hear that you think the music is a nice touch. I love that you enjoyed the songs I posted here. The one called Rainbows always makes me think of my dog, Misty. She struggled near the end and the words about struggle remind me of what she went through. Then the storm stopped. The sky opened…and she always had a rainbow over her head as she was the nicest dog I’ve ever known. She was perfectly named after a dog that I used to care for when I was a child, a sweet miniature collie that lived in the house next door named Misty.
    Callie
