Recording Shadowsong!


Yesterday was one of those golden days. I laughed so much my face hurt. Spending time in the studio with Phil and Neil, listening to them make music and...er...other things...was a total blast.


We're hoping the new CD will be done and ready for pre-order by mid-December. We've got some very cool music and art that's going into Shadowsong. This time, I'll be including a list that tells you where in the book to listen to each song. Unlike the last CD that was about the entire series, Shadowsong is specific to Shadowfever.


Phil flew in to record a very special piece with us that I know you're going to love. After Neil finished writing it, we realized there was only one voice that could do it justice. I was fanning myself the entire time he recorded it. I kept asking him to redo a few lines just so I could hear him say them again. (Like: "I am your dirty dreams.")


I was trying to get a good shot of Neil and Phil together to share with you but they got into a pissing contest...or...something, LOL! Did I tell you laughed so much my face hurt?



All in all a great day. I'm so excited to share the music with you soon!

AHHH! I need to know what/where that line means/is! Are "Shadowsong" CDs going to be available at the signing in NOLA? Need to remember my computer if there are.

(oh, and HOT PANTS in that last pic!)

Karen, you're blond! I love this hairstyle. Your outfit is very trendy =D

Phil & Neil look funny. I can't wait to hear shadowsong and listen to it as I read SF. Bloodrush was a great soundtrack.

I hope I get to go to NOLA in January!

I love Neil's boots. What instrument is he playing? It looks too small to be a guitar.?
