The Soundtracks to Our Stories

I thought I would try something a little fun and different for today’s blog post. This will pertain to all my fellow authors out there. Think carefully and decide, if you could choose one soundtrack for each of your titles, what would it be? Book trailers are becoming a huge marketing tool for authors, and as a teacher of little ones, I have learned over the years that everyone learns and remembers concepts much better when they are set to music. So let’s hear it! What song do you imagine playing in the background when people see your book cover?


Here are my choices for my titles:

Bad Day (Daniel Powter)


What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong)


Let Them Be Little (Billy Dean)


Whitney Houston: The Greatest Love of All (I Believe the Children are our Future)

RAH cover 10-11-14


I’m a Survivor (Destiny’s Child)

cover Darkness final


**Feel free to post images/links to your books along with the song titles, if the site allows you to:)

      Ha ha! That’s a good one, John 🙂

      This intrigues me.

      After reading your book blurb, John, I might agree with you; but just by looking at your book cover, I would have chosen something like, Come Undone by Duran Duran. Just me, lol.

  • Kathryn Chastain Treat As Tears Go By performed by Marianne Faithful

    • Traci Sanders

      That’s an interesting choice for yours, Kathryn 🙂 I would have chosen something like All By Myself by Celine Dion, only because that’s how I imagined you felt while going through your medical ordeals; and that’s the heart-wrenching vibe I got while reading your book.

        Actually I had not thought of that. That is a great choice.

        I just remember going for a ride when my husband had errands to do. I would sit and watch all the shoppers go about their business as if they didn’t have a care in the world through the windows of our car. I just wanted to cry.

          Aww, that’s so sad:( I guess it depends on the person’s perspective of the situation. Thanks for sharing!
