New Book, New Soundtrack

My current heroine, Leanne Thomas, would definitely prefer a kitty to diamonds. She's a paramedic and a volunteer mountain rescuer. She's made appearances in Rescued by the Magic of Christmas, Snow-Kissed Romance and Christmas Magic on the Mountain.

Now it's her turn to give romance a go in Christmas Magic in Hood Hamlet (working title.) All the men she works and climbs with think of her as one of the guys. That's how she thinks of herself, too. At least until she and my hero are forced to spend a lot of time together.

Yesterday, I found the perfect song for Leanne. If you've read this blog for any period of time, you might remember I put together a book soundtrack for each manuscript I write. Well, I finally have my first song!

My son bought my oldest daughter the first volume Glee soundtrack for Christmas. It's been in the CD player in the minivan for a couple of days, and I finally got to listen to the end tracks. As soon as I heard the song, Defying Gravity, I thought of Leanne.

I found two versions of the song. The first clip is from a Glee episode that I found via rickey.org:

Here is the song from the soundtrack. Can you tell what's different from the show version?

I can't tell you how much this song fits Leanne. It gives me chills just thinking about it! (I must admit it also fits my July release heroine, Princess Julianna. Wonder what's going on in my subconscious!) Now to find a few more tunes to add to my book soundtrack! Of course, there will be some Christmas carols, too!
