On Air: The Speculative Fiction Cantina (10th April 2015)
During the programme both K.A. Laity will be reading from our books for about five to eight minutes each. Expect singing from me as I read to you from chapter eight of “The Ghosts of the Past.”
In preparation for the show and simply because I cannot sing all the Peers of Beinan Series songs in the time allotted, I recently made youtube video recordings of the songs. These are music videos and not book trailers; not one of the videos include any marketing messages nor any links to buy any of my books. These exist purely for their entertainment value and for the satisfaction of making them and sharing my music.
Here they are in order presented in the series:
This is from chapter three of The Great Succession Crisis. It was added to the book when I released the extended edition in January 2013 and does not appear in the rare first edition (1st edition is a major collector’s item if you have one).
This song is “I Shall Always Find You” from chapter seven of “The Ghosts of the Past. It is a song about love, hope, and reincarnation and is sung by Lady Mind Healer Feawen. This song reprises as a duet between Lord Knight Elendir and Princess Anyu at the very end of the book.
This is the entire scene featuring “Here Lays My Father and My Lord” and is most likely the section I will read on air. The song tells the story of King Kendric’s reign which is otherwise skipped over in the book.
The Coronation Hymn is the final song in the Peers of Beinan. I wanted to perform this scene in full on Friday, but it contains way too many spoilers.
Music is very important to my life. I hope you enjoy these songs and will share them with others.
