Every novel has it's own flavour. To be honest not all my books have a soundtrack. The novella I just completed I wrote in silence in a week. It was a week where I oddly had zero social commitments and those I did have got cancelled.
Silence. It's not a bad thing.
A Fair Exchange however is a bit different because it was inspired in part by my own experiences as an exchange student and so certain songs from that time, though Amelia is far younger than I am, the music that informed the book is from my own time.
This first song is Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About Me - from the Breakfast Club Soundtrack. It's co-incidental that the movie is 30 years old this week. I expected my US High School to be like this. It wasn't at all. (And sadly my hair still doesn't look like Molly Ringwald's hair in the movie, 30 years later I still wish it did).
