As I started on this writing journey, I found I could often hear certain songs playing as I wrote particular scenes. To be honest, I didn’t know if it was a common thing for writers or if I was just a little crazy! However, as I’ve begun to connect with fellow authors, I found, much to my delight, I’m not alone. Book playlists are a real thing!
I’m so excited to share my playlist for The Other Side of Later. While a couple of the songs are geared towards a particular scene, most of them just inspired me and really added to the development of the plot. The Other Side of Later is the story of Julia Merina, who learns just shy of 25, she learns the hard way that life rarely goes according to plan. After the turbulent years of her early 20s, Julia resolved to never trust a man again. That is until Drew Parkington, an old classmate, suddenly comes back into her life. Julia is forced to examine her life and decide if she can let go of the past and learn to trust again.
