The Fall Of The Hammer: Behind The Scenes With 'Fall Of The Hammer', Pt. 8: The Soundtrack

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2020-09-10 12:00:00 No comments


In the time leading up to the release of my new novel Fall Of The Hammer, I'll be making a series of posts to serve as an extended introduction to the book -- its origins, its influences, its themes, its setting and characters. Enjoy.

(See all entries in this series here.)

With each book I write, there's almost always a soundtrack of some kind to go with it -- music to match the mood and tempo of each scene. That said, I find I almost never listen to the music in question when writing or editing the scene in question, as I find that too distracting; there's other music I have specifically for the writing process.

Odds are you can find most, if not all, of these by way of your friendly neighborhood music streaming service.

Note that the scene descriptions may contain spoilers!
