Beautiful Music Inspires Writing

I know I'm not alone as an author when I say music can inspire my writing. A few words, a melody, or a full song, and I can see the story unfold, the characters as they battle emotions, enemies, and love. When I create my book trailers, I spend a lot of time listening to music (probably too much time), but in the end, the time spent was well worth the effort.

I came across "Ar Éirinn Ní Neosfainn Cé Hí" performed by Maria McCool, and just knew it would be perfect Clayton's Honor. The words and music fit the story and characters, and created the perfect mood. Maria was kind enough to give her permission to use the song in the book trailer. I love all of my book trailers, but this stunning music has put this particular trailer at the top of my favorites list.
