Today, is stop number two on the Tasha Turner Coaching/MasterKoda Virtual Blog Tour (VBT), and I have the honor of hosting Kim Mutch Emerson. Tasha, being the brilliant mind that she is, wanted to know what song suits our novel best. Let’s see what melody best describes Kim’s soon-to-be-released YA series.
Da Da Da Daaah!
Challenges – I love them. Or most of them. Okay, some of them.
Given the challenge of comparing my upcoming series of Young Adult books to a song (the first one to be released this fall) I set out in a quest to find the perfect song. I thought, well this is easy enough because I am also a musician that loves all types of music.
During this quest I realized there was no way to choose just one song. There are too many climaxes, too much action, too many moments of suspense and discovery for one song to say it all. And that’s when I remembered Beethoven!
Da Da Da Daaah!
That grand opening of his fifth symphony when we hear “Da Da Da Daaaah” “Da Da Da DAAAH”! And then it builds – you run panting – frantically looking behind you – clawing your way up a cliff – a bad guy behind every tree. It builds and falls and builds again. You can hardly turn the page fast enough! Where will it end? Will there be victory for the five teenagers stranded on an arctic island? Will they find out why they were tossed from a perfectly good Lear Jet? Is there more to their dilemma than meets the eye seething beneath the surface? What force is out there against them? And just when we think they are safe…
Da Da Da Daaaaaaah…
Author, KD Emerson was born (or is that hatched) several years ago. We won’t go into how long it has been because she has this fantasy that she is still a teenager off to conquer the world. She has a passion for the written word and assisting other writers in becoming the best they can be. She also loves to promote others and cheer them on to victory.
