Mixtape for ofletters
Hello! I am working on a NaNo thing this year and I saw your RFP for nano mixtapes. If you’re still willing, here’s my little blurb:
Title: The York Book Review
Tagline: This wasn’t the book club we thought it’d be…
Synopsis: A library school dropout is sentences to represent her county on the media review board for the York Correctional Institute.
Characters: MC, a bipolar library tech who can’t figure out why she hasn’t moved on; Adrienne, a database engineer who just moved here with her husband, is contracted to upgrade the library network, and is MC’s partner in crime; Rhonda, MC’s mentor who grew the library from a renovated ice cream truck to a three story power institution of knowledge it is today Todd, the self-centered musician who keeps texting MC and can’t understand why she won’t come to any of his shows.
Hello! Sorry, I didn’t get this up before the end of November. I’ve been super busy. But, here it is—the mixtape. Enjoy!

Where Artists Dwell - Mixtape
Hope you’re still doing this! And thank you in advance :)
My novel, Where Artists Dwell, is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian world where those who do not fit into society live in secret underground. It follows several different characters from rebels, to criminals, to government, to outcasts as they all struggle, scheme and fight to live how they want and keep the world from the brink of destruction. It’s a lot about freedom and throwing off societal restraints.
I have a lot of characters but my main few are - Ren, an outcast from society who is anti-social, doesn’t like to talk and hides part of his face with a mask. Talin (think Bilbo Baggins). He’s quite clumsy and optimistic. He comes from the above ground society and is quite sheltered but finds himself banished from the city at the start of the book. Leena, she is a prostitute who has known no other life than that of the one she has below ground. She says what she thinks but gets along with most people. She dreams of being free. Her and Ren have simmering sexual tension (though Ren refuses to acknowledge this). Kite, who is an assassin for the government, raised to kill, blunt, stony but wars inside herself over what she does. Fin, who is a rebel that lost the love of his life and seeks revenge though is outwardly very witty and charismatic.
I’ll stop there. I have way too many characters and I don’t wanna overload you.
Hope that is enough/not too much. Thank you again! :)

thank you SO MUCH for my mix! It's almost creepy how well all the songs match. O_O Thank you! :)
OMG yay! YAY! More yay! All the yay!
I’m pretty sure the whole matching music to the written word is my superpower or something. Just don’t tell anyone about.
