And, because it's a Christmas-themed romance, and because it's that time of year again, I thought I'd do a festive-themed musical post to get everyone in the mood for the coming holiday period.
So, just what were the Christmas songs that made up a suitable soundtrack for Christmas Without Icing?
Well, as much as I love the old Slade and Wizzard classics, they weren't really the kind of music that went with this story, but these ones were...
Mud - Lonely This Christmas
Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas is You
Michael Buble - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Greg Lake - I Believe in Father Christmas
Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime
Any favourites in there? One of my absolute favourite Christmas songs of all time is included in that list - Greg Lake's 'I Believe in Father Christmas'. Ever since I was a child I've loved that song, and I don't even know why. I just do. And, funnily enough, it kind of suited this story too.
So, that's the soundtrack for the book - and if you'd like to read a little excerpt from this brand-new novella of mine, you can do so here - an excerpt from Christmas Without Icing - and see what you think.
So, get those Christmas tunes turned up loud, grab a mince pie, and curl up with a festive romance - Christmas Without Icing - a Lapland fairytale. Available to download HERE from Amazon for just 99p!
And look out for another musical post later today where I'll be sharing some of my all-time favourite Christmas classics! Yes, it's just another excuse to play Slade again...
Can I smell mulled wine on the go...?
