I think this happens with many authors – you love your characters so much they become real to you. Even though we can’t show all of their lives in one book, we, the authors, have lots of vignettes and extra scenes that we imagine without the time to show. At least, this happens to me.
In my writer’s world, this involvement in my characters’ lives involves many cinematic scenes passing thorugh my mind – the things viewers would see if my books were put to film *longing sigh*. Of course, that includes music. For whatever reason, certain songs automatically attach themselves to certain characters from my books and they stick. I wanted to share with you some of the songs that have been matched with my couples:
Kiss of the Werewolves – Jie and Megan – You and Me by Lifehouse
A Man for Michael – Cory and Mike – Savin’ Me by Nickelback
Barely Undercover – Kaz and Damien – Far Away by Nickelback
Acts of Passion – Michael and Jack – Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones (this couple also has the song Breathe Me by Sia)
Men of Tokyo: Sudden Bliss – Naoto and Koji – Collide by Howie Day
