Merminia Playlist

Please Share

Okay folks, here is a post for fun.

Music was a must for me in creating the tone and mood of each scene in my fantasy book, Merminia.  Admittedly, I have entire music playlists assigned to each of the main characters.

And in order to channel the tension of battle, the fear of laying eyes on a dragon, the pain of unrequited love, and the thrill of falling for someone, I blasted the following songs on repeat at hideous volumes.

Here is a condensed list of cherished songs that I wore out while writing Merminia:
