Tour Stops in Twilight, Nook, and Neverland

OnceUponThe Rule of Mirrors Blog Tour has made it to Once Upon A Twilight with a playlist for The Rule of Mirrors, complete with songs I listened to while I was writing and others that go with the theme, characters, and moods of the novel.  Leydy did a fabulous job finding links to play each song, so listening to the sequence is an experience in itself.  I especially like the Joplin, which never sounds as good when I try to play it myself.

Mercutio: That dreamers often lie.

Romeo: In bed asleep, while they do dream things true.

ADreamWithinI like the double-meaning of “lie” (recline/fib),  and Romeo’s assertion that we can dream the truth. Fittingly, the Rule of Mirrors Blog Tour stops today at A Dream Within A Dream for an interview and a… Continue reading
