Edges Soundtrack

I've been obsessing over Anthony Kiedis and Paul Newman these days as I WAIT in this hallway for Edges to be unleashed on the world. What do these two have in common? Music. Why am I obsessing?

At this point Edges will sink or swim according to public opinion, and I know I have to let go. But I've been holding on for dear life, agonizing, agitated over how it's going to do out there in the big bad world. What else can I do while waiting for my book's debut?

1: I've come up with a plan to solicit author visits to schools and libraries (I'm already a teacher and a counselor - why not extend my passions to encompass a book so close to my heart?) by creating another page on my website.

2: A couple of weeks ago when I got all fancy and created a Facebook page for Edges the question begged asking: what on earth could I post related to Edges besides it's own little news blurbs? So I started out posting photographs and a musical playlist - setting a mood.

The first song I posted to the Edges FB page was Everlast's Put Your Lights On. This song never fails to make me think of Ava and her demons. Then came a whole slew: The Pixies, Coldplay, Sufjan Stevens, Pomplamoosse, Cake (go to FB for more!) . . . even my favorite actor Paul Newman, singing a song called Plastic Jesus in the movie Cool Hand Luke,  which never fails to make me weepy. Anthony Kiedis singing Knock Me Down with the Red Hot Chili Peppers sends spastic chills through me.

It is music that makes the WAITING fun, and I'm excited to let Luke and Ava guide me with their choices in music. Suggestions welcome!
