Born To Be My Baby

It’s Music Monday!


Happy Monday, everybody! I’ve spent the last two weeks getting intimately familiar with every last word in Sophie’s Encore all over again, checking for typos, missing words, commas, hyphens and other calamities. The manuscript is now clean, I’m relieved to report. Woohooo! This means I’ve read the novel forwards and backwards and upside down (yes, upside down!). I’ve experienced all over again every emotion I wrote for my characters, and every emotion I went through while writing.

The tag line is… Her rock star is waiting in the wings, but will he get a second chance?

Well then. With that, there’s only type of song that Dan could be performing right at this moment. A CLASSIC!

Oh yeah, babe! Don’t you just love it?? *swoons* I wonder what Sophie would say….


It’s the school holidays and I need a break! So I welcome suggestions for Music Monday Takeover ~ your chance to be my guest picker! What song would Rock Your World over the next few weeks? I’m looking for four of your most Awesome Rock Songs ~ let’s hear your choice and see what shakes out!

  1. I must confess the checking for typos, naughty commas, secretive hyphens and the like is not my favourite part of being a writer! But yes, it has to be done, and I’m chuffed for you that Sophie’s Encore is clean and clear and ready to go! Hooray!!!!

    Music Monday suggestions, huh? Erm……
    (1) Magnum – How Far Jerusalem
    (2) Marillion – Fantastic Place
    (3) Heart – Alone
    (4) Dare – King of Spades

  2. Suggestions? Where shall I start! How about:
    1 Ramble On – Led Zeppelin
    2 Long Live Rock ‘n Roll – Rainbow
    3 Back in Black – AC/DC
    4 Run to the Hills – Iron Maiden
    I could go on and on!
    Glad you’ve got the dreaded proof reading done. It’s not my idea of fun I must admit!

  3. Hi Nicky
    You forgot to mention whether you read it inside out.
    Anyway, boy did you pick a song for me to respond to this week. There’s just way too many songs for me to choose from which deals with the topic your song dealt with. So instead I’ve decided to pick my selection based on the tagline you gave us. I feel this song would be best if Sophie sang it herself.
    Enjoy and let me know what you think.

    I’ll try my best to give you my list of four songs, because as you might have guessed, I’ve got to many to choose from. 😀 😀 😀

  4. Congrats on finishing up the editing, Nicky. I hope you enjoy your holiday! Oh, and I love this Bon Jovi song…well, I don’t think I dislike anything he’s sung. 😉

    Here are a few of my favorites:
    Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen
    RESPECT – Aretha Franklin
    Layla – Derek and the Dominos

    • OOOH! Springsteen! Haven’t had Springsteen yet! Now you got me singing, Brandee! Thanks for your comment and for your selections. AWESOME! I’ll HAVE to use to be fair but come back next week to see who’s ‘guesting’. XXX
