Hi guys, as some of you know, now I'm a writer, well I'm not famous, but I have my following.
So now I'm very busy promoting my books, traveling all around Italy and working as a Community Manager for my Publisher and for other clients.

So, around August I decided to give a gift to all the people how come to meet me or to buy my books at the events I attend and give them a soundtrack of my last novel, Nora.
This one is my fav track of the EP, of course this is a remix and you know how I love dance/electronic music.
So when I give the CD to my readers and I tell them 'so track 1 to 3 are more darker, track 4 to 6 are dance music' they look at me like: WTF it's the soundtrack to a horror novel lol

Well hope you enjoy it! ;)

Oh wow James, this is really impressive work.

Congratulations!

:jenclap2

What's the novel about? Can you give us a summary? And did you make the music yourself? Where can I listen to the full EP? I guess this is one of the dance tracks, so I'd love to hear the darker stuff. Writers don't usually give away music to accompany their books, so this is a really novel (I'm sorry) idea.

Awww thank u soooo much!!! :love2
The novel is about a woman, Nora, that is taken to a mental hospital after the police found her daughter killed in her house.
So we have the neighborhood who talk about her; they see her like the crazy woman of the block, always screaming to 'someone' in her house. The woman who betrayed her husband and he beaten her up and tortured her till the day he died.
And the real story that Nora tells to a male nurse, about shadows in her house.
She was the prisoner of her life and her mind, living alone and victim of these 'shadows'.
SPOILER:
One day she founds that these shadows are the 'souls' of the fetus she buried in her garden after miscarriages, and their death and blood feed something that lived inside that ground.
And these shadows are hungry for blood and start to slip outside her house killing her neighbor.

The message of the book is: never judge someone, even the creepiest person has a story, has a battle inside, has a past and a desire.

It's a psychological horror, and in 2018 my publisher is gonna release the prequel (La stanza 218, The room 218). I'm a little scared because this new novel is more explicit :oops:

The full EP is here:

and thank u for the compliments! :love2

I love the creepy melody you created. It has a lot more punch in the original version. Should've posted that one first IMO.

Good luck, the book sounds great. I'm sure you'll have great success with it. :friends:
