Richard’s Playlist (71) – Dancing Away With My Heart by Lady Antebellum

Richard and Rose share a romantic slow dance in Torstein’s cabin in the mountains, bitter-sweet as there appears to be no future for them. I love Lady Antebellum and the song ‘Dancing Away With My Heart‘ is perfect for this scene. Click for video.

Latest Review


Here is the latest Amazon review I have for my first novel, Richard Liveth Yet:

512px-5_stars.svg  ‘Love this, well written, good historical info though I do not agree with some things in the book but it is good that the author has taken some trouble to be fairly accurate.
Well worth reading for Ricardians of which I am one and I am very fussy about fiction about Richard.’

You can read the others by following this link. There are now thirty on the UK site and, apparently, Amazon gives your book more promotion if you have more than fifty, so if anyone has read it (and especially if they liked it!) please consider giving it a review. It doesn’t need to be a long one; as you can see some of these consist of just a few words and others of several paragraphs – they are all precious to us authors!

Richard’s Playlist (70) – Earth by Hans Zimmer

Richard and Rose can see what seems like the whole of the earth from the top of the Norwegian mountain, Nårkampen. As I love the track, Earth, by Hans Zimmer, which was part of the soundtrack to Gladiator, I used it as the title for this scene – it’s so peaceful as the Norwegian mountains are.

Richard’s Playlist (69) – Mountains by Lonestar

Richard and Rose are enjoying relaxing with Torstein in Norway and they spend some time exploring the beautiful Norwegian countryside, climbing a small mountain called Nårkampen. This beautiful song, Mountains, by Lonestar, is perfect for this scene. Click the link to see the video.

Here is a photo of Nårkampen.
