If my manuscript were a song…

Yesterday I entered Lucid Dreaming in Pitch Slam. The theme is one of those musical talent shows, like Australian/American/Armenian Idol. You audition (send your pitch) and if Simon Cowell doesn’t hate you, you move on to the next round. The agents, if they make requests, do so as record executives.

I know, right? How cute is that? 🙂

Anyway, as well as providing details like genre and word count, I had to name a song that sums up my manuscript.

For Lucid Dreaming, that was easy. (For Isla, I’d have a lot more trouble.) It’s Enter Sandman by Metallica. But it has to be an orchestral version, because violins. VIOLINS!

Ahem. What song would you choose for your manuscript/s or WIP/s?

    Hello! I love these types of questions, and I often ask the authors I interview a very similar question. I think linking our work to as many things as possible not only makes it marketable, but also connects it to more readers.

    For my latest work in progress, Sting’s Book Of My Life would be my answer to your question. If you are unfamiliar with the song, here is a link.

    Thanks for the great question!
