Watch Over Me SOUNDTRACK

You read that right! A soundtrack for Watch Over Me.

Music is a huge part of my life and plays a significant role in my writing process, so is it any wonder that ever since buying the soundtrack Susan Elizabeth Phillips' son did for This Heart of Mine, I've wanted to have one made for one of my books? I still listen to that soundtrack and it brings back the great feelings I had when reading THOM. Giving that same gift to my readers was a dream I wasn't sure how to realize.

Then, a couple of years ago, an amazing singer who was a friend of my sister's told me she'd do a soundtrack for Satisfaction Guaranteed, but time got away from her and the project never got past the planning stages. So, when DQ's boyfriend (a wonderful young man I hope to call son one day) suggested a couple of his friends to do one for Watch Over Me, I was excited but not expecting too much. I guess I didn't want to get my hopes up. Man, sometimes it feels good to be wrong! LOL

I should have expected the world! Not only did fresh artists BBk and Image create an incredible five song soundtrack for Watch Over Me, but they sold me rights so I can allow my readers to download the music for FREE for the next two years! I really wanted to do something special to say thank you to you all for supporting me through 45 books and this soundtrack is it. I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as I have. In my opinion, it's absolutely fabulous! :)

You can listen to it and download it off the "Contest & Fun Stuff" page on my website or on MySpace.

Mega hugs,
Lucy :)


BBk's Bio

"Life is just alot of sounds that form a vision for our eyes, So I simply use earth as my pallet, and my potrait the sky...."

Delivering unqiue sounds since 2006, BBk was born and raised in Sacramento CA, where he took an intrest in music. At the age of 15 he moved from his home town to Oregon, becoming a music producer soon there after. Influenced by his best friend and now beat mentor CMA Natural, BBk forms together sounds that are destined for the ears of others. With styles ranging from underground Hip Hop to techno to Jazz, he creates sounds that everyone can vibe with. You can find BBk on MySpace here.

And more information on BBk's Knowhere Village can be found here.


Image's Bio

Up and coming hip-hop musician, Image was born in Portland, Oregon. He began writing songs to instrumentals, downloaded by his father (a local Portland rapper by the name of Johnie b.), and decided to take on rapping as a hobby at the age of 8. Anthony attended Benson High School in Portland, where he adopted the name Image for his vivid storytelling implemented in his raps. He decided to further his education and attended Willamette University, gaining a BA in Sociology, where he adopted the nickname Triece. The two names began to go hand in hand as he uses his name Image as his fast-talking, arrogant alter ego, while Triece is his more personable side which he prefers to be called off stage. He is currently recording under his label Backpack Musik which is part of EZ House Entertainment, a blend of music and urban streetwear clothing. He has performed with other artists and groups such as Nappy Roots, The Pack, and Living Legends to name a few. His first solo mixtape was released April 2009 and is available for free download here.

Look forward to more music being released by this artist in summer 2009 under the Backpack Musik label, linked with EZ clothing company, which can be found and bought on kazbaa of karmaloop.com or ezlifestyleclothing.com.

Interesting, because often when I read books I picture in my mind the type of music in certain scenes. Like in historicals, during debutante ball scenes I picture violins and chamber music. Now more authors are putting together music to accompany their books...cool!
