Book Soundtrack: The Karma Club


Excerpt from Jessica's blog post:
The Story of the Karma Club Book Soundtrack
by Jessica Brody

Have you ever been reading a book, stopped at a specific part and said, "I know the perfect song to go with this scene!"

Well, as authors, this happens to us very often. Except when we're actually writing the book. When writing The Karma Club, however, I wanted to take it a step further. I wanted to create an entire book soundtrack with songs that you could listen to while you read and that contributed perfectly to scene you were reading. I thought, if movies can have soundtracks, why not books?

So I teamed up with my very good friend and brilliant producer, Holly Karrol Clark, and we set off to produce one of the first Original Book Soundtracks, featuring songs that directly enhance your experience when reading the story. And we even produced FOUR original songs directly inspired by the book!

Here are some fun stories of how each song came to be included in the Karma Club Book Soundtrack and how/when it fits into the story of The Karma Club.

  1. The story about how "Remember When" could be the theme song for the whole book. I love when writers share what songs inspired them.

  2. I've never actually heard of any of these artists but I'd love to listen to the acoustic track while reading my copy of The Karma Club. It's one of my most anticipated and yet I haven't managed to read it as yet.
